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.

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

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

Love this beer it is my go to IPA. I consider myself a bit of a Abita Mark and love almost all of their products. Itís smooth with a perfect citrus hop medium. If you are a hopaholic like me this isnít gonna be the one for you...but if you like to kick back and enjoy a very smooth IPA that is well made and at a great price I would argue this is hard to beat.

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.

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

nearbeer (3590) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 18, 2007
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.

Cybercat (3200) - Georgia, USA - FEB 9, 2009
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.
