The hops flavor is just right for an IPA. I love this beer, and I think nothing else accompanies hot boiled crawfish like a Jockamo [Mardi Gras] Indian Pale Ale

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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

I love this "IPA" true, itís not as hoppy as a "California style" IPA. But I like the complex flavors it offers over a robust hop.

Bottle. Light amber with foamy head. Smells yummy. Even has a little funk. Tastes good to. Seems fairly complex but not overwhelming. I should add this in to the repertoire.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is amazing, fruity, floral, and bright fresh soft grapes, probably the hop, sauvin. Appearance is copper-reddish-gold with decent head that falls leaving nice thin legs. Taste is first, floral grape hop, then washes over with awesome caramel hints of malts and finishes with the hop spice but everything is super balanced works great. Palate is also well executed, balanced and just the right amount of malt and hop and finishes clean and begs for another drink. Overall I really like this one, i could drink a bunch of them since they dont saturate and overpower the tongue. Session IPA

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2008 12 oz. Deep, clear copper with a small, lasting head. Spiced tea, molasses and slight chocolate aroma is delicious. Flavor is an awesome, earthy blend: dirty molasses, citrus peel, tea leaf, pine resin, cocoa, and herby marshmallow. Palate is smooth and nearly medium-bodied, with some different (from most American IPAs) smooth and rich hops (maybe Fuggles?) on the finish. Unique flavor take on the style that I really appreciate. Wow, this is way more than I was expecting from this one.

Comes out of the tap an appetizing hazy dark amber. Rich, hoppy aroma has a malty overtone and just a touch of spice. Lively flavor is fairly hoppy, nicely bitter, with just a touch of spice, mainly cinnamon, and malt, as well as a whisper of sweetness. Smooth texture is tingly and spicy, very satisfying.

Nice citrus nose and clean classic IPA finish. A very reputable American IPA.
