Abita Jockamo IPA

Abita Jockamo IPA. 6.5% abv. 52 IBU. Copper color. Hazy, almost as if unflitered. Rich creamy head with good retention and excellent lace. First taste is caramel with each taste getting more fresh hops. Gets much more malty as temp drops. Body is smooth, sticks to your tongue, slightly sweet. The hop profile is not as strong as you'd normally expect from an IPA, but it's still a good brew worth trying.

From the brewery:

"Abita Jockamo IPA is an American IPA brewed with pale, red, and caramel malts. This copper-colored ale is liberally hopped and dry hopped with Willamette and Columbus hops. The flavor is bold like the ‘Mardi Gras Indians’ who march through New Orleans in suits of feathers and beads. Jockamo has a flavor that entices and excites the palate. The intense hop character adds more spice to the meal and makes it a perfect choice to team up with many spicy dishes. Cheddar and strong farmer cheeses stand up well to Jockamo’s hoppy character. Jockamo goes well with wild game, grilled meats and Thai or Mexican cuisine."
