COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The newest Abita brew takes its name and inspiration from the Mardi Gras Indians of New Orleans. Looking for Indians on Mardi Gras Day is a tradition for many New Orleans families. A cultural phenomenon familiar to residents of the Crescent City, the Mardi Gras Indians are not well known to outsiders and Abita is proud to help share their story with the world.

12 oz. bottle from Sun Devil Liquors - Pours a clear copper color with a one finger thick off white head. Very light lacing. Aroma is floral, pine, and light citrus. Flavor is much of the same with very little malt backbone. Palate is fairly clean with light bitterness. Medium body. A pleasant, easy drinking IPA. Worth a try.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2008 I must put in the disclaimer: I live less than 1 mile from the Abita Brewery and have been a fan of their beers since 1986. That being said, Jockamo IPA is my favorite Abita beer yet. It pours a rusty red color with a foamy tan head with lots of persistence. Great lacing. Floral nose with notes of bread and hints of fruit. Its woody/piney, fruity, carmelly, hoppy taste is an awesome combination of complex and interesting while simultaneously being clean and refreshing. It has the moderately bitter hop finish typical of a good IPA. In my, probably biased opinion, its the best balanced beer I know of. Equally sipable or quaffable. Abita came pretty close to the bullseye on this one

From the bottle straight. Donít know much about aroma or appearance because of the bottle. I liked it quite a bit. But chugging with a 3 pounds of crawfish will make any beer good. Quite hoppy and a little sweet. A nice beer to drink in such a setting. Had it at big alís in Houma. It would be a nice casual beer to drink if they had it ouT of louisiana.

blankboy (6052) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear orange-copper with a large foamy off-white head. Mild aroma of caramel malt, hops and traces of honey and fruit. Flavourís also mild and maybe a tad watery -- It starts with caramel malt and light fruit followed by citrus & resiny hops and has a decent bitter finish. Surprisingly, a little sweet too. Medium bodied. It didnít impress me but itís O.K., Iíd drink it again.

BeerandBlues2 (9701) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 17, 2008
Bottle received via trade with swoopjones. Pours clear amber with a small, frothy, off-white head, diminishing with spare lacing. Aroma is average malt (bread, grain, meal), average hops (flowers, pine, citrus), light yeast (sweat) with notes of peach. Light bodied, thin texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

Jockomo IPA was crisp with c-hops and not overblown with bitterness. Left a sticky film on my teeth. I agree with other raters here, its nice to see Abita doing a new beer, just wish it was better than average.
