Quite as most Abita beers, water and incipient. But it is interesting to have on a barbecue gathering just to enjoy the time.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Apparently "Jockamo" was the original title for "Iko Iko", a New Orleans ear-worm so insidiously awful that I would rather stab myself in the anvil, stirrup and cochlea than endure it again. I’m more positive on the beer. It’s not big enough to meet the beer geek’s passion for hop bombs, but it’s a decent, flavoursome IPA for those with more modest expectations. Clear bronze with a thick head showing fair retention and some lace. Big fruity aroma of white peach, mango, squeeze of lemon. Soft carbonation. Swirl of summer fruits on the tongue. Pity that a slight metallic taint to the finish clashes with the soft fruits and detracts from the overall effect. Still, I couldn’t find much to dislike here apart from the fact I now have "Iko Iko" on a loop in my head. Knife please. (355ml bottle from Carrington Cellars, Katoomba)

On tap at Marigny in NOLA. Truly not a good IPA. A bit of pine and bready malt in the nose; nothing remarkable. Taste is pretty bland - hop profile is weak. Bready malt overpowers. Medium thin body. Blah. I didn’t enjoy.

Good strong flavored ipa, has much more flavors in this beer than just hops, I think they use swamp water in here, but I like it!

This is truly awful. Pure malt bomb, overly sweet, what in the world? Why even put this out in the current beer market?
