3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bought a sixer at zydeco voodoo on Canal St. Wasn’t sure what to expect, but was pleasantly suprised. Deep hop aroma with some faint sweetness. The taste was of a floral hops with a nice malt backbone. A very straitforward ipa. Textbook if you may.

Color ambra, ha leggero naso agrumato. Sicuramente la bottiglia provata non era in forma, ma comunque ben lontana dalle migliori Ipa

Bottle - pours deep orange with a short lived head. Aroma is resin hop and malt. Taste isn’t as hoppy as expected. Dry quite smooth orange citrus finish.

From a bottle. Pretty much what you would expect, well made IPA with a huge hop punch and resin finish. Good stuff.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: fruity and slightly hoppy; Appearance: dark amber with pillow head that dissipates fairly quickly; nice lacing; Taste: faintly piney and grapefruity; almost wouldn’t know it’s an IPA unless you told me; Palate: medium body with medium bitter finish; Overall: smooth, drinkable and completely unremarkable; would not buy again unless deeply discounted.

Onestamente terribile. Una delle peggiori ipa che abbia mai assaggiato. Totale assenza di luppolo

12 oz. bottle. Pale amber with beige head. Aroma of malt, subdued grapefruit and citrus. Taste: malt, some mild pine and grapefruit. Some bitterness. Overall, rather bland for an IPA.

Bottle. Rich yellow with small off-white foamy head, grassy hops aroma, medium carbonation, medium bitter hoppy taste with a hint of mango flavor, medium bitter finish. Quite mediocre as an IPA.

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)
