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.

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.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber body with a foamy, short-lived white head. Smell: Light caramel maltiness with notes of citrus zests and resinous pine. Taste: Mildly sweet caramel malts with a dry honey flavor. Citrusy hop flavors of grapefruit and orange peel. Spicy pine. Medium bitterness. Citric finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Decent enough for an IPA, though it is nice to see Abita doing some new stuff.

12oz - Aroma of caramel, pine and earty hops. Pours transparent copper with a medium head and good lacing. Flavor is medicinal pine hops, caramel malt, rusty water with a very bitter finish. Palate is tart and sticky. Overall itís pretty unbalanced and not too good.

Pours beautifully. Foggy orange copper with a smaller creme head. Hope it tastes as good as it looks. Nose is a bit mild, but decently hoppy with a citric tone to it. Seems a bit unbalanced. Flavor is nice. Smooth hoppy edge with noticeable citrus. Feel has a decent liquid thing going on and the carbonation is a bit low, but smooth and feels good. Overall I have to say this is the most interesting thing I have had from Abita to date. I think this is the first time I have felt they have attempted at pushing the envelope.

Bottle. Amber body, small white head, caramel nose. Estery flavors with some spicy hops (Fuggles?) and caramel but somewhat weak tasting overall.

12 oz bottle purchased at Oak Tree. Pours a thin clear reddish copper color with an average size fluffy white head. Initial aroma had a burst of citrus hops and caramel. After the initial burst the aroma fades and is much more subdued and not in a good way. Body is thin and watery with lots of fizzy carbonation that feels pumped in. Flavor itís, uhm well itís sort of like, you see, it kind of reminds me of. Flat out if this is an IPA then the flavor SUCKS!! The commercial deScription might as well read "Looking for flavor in Jockamo IPA on Mardi Gras Day is a tradition for many New Orleans families".

Clear copper, with a sizzling, short-lived white head. OK nose, slightly sweet with a slight bit of kumquat and some musty grain. Decent flavor, somewhat orangey, a bit floral, medium bitterness. Surprisingly good coming from Abita.
