Now drinking. A new favorite. Abita Jockamo IPA.

This week’s installment introduces the Recycle Bin to a new delectable nectar of the gods that is right up there with, dare I say possibly (maybe) surpassing, the goodness of Sweetwater 420. On the Friday drive home from work I ducked into the local brownbag package store [that would be Mr. B’s] and picked up a six-pack of Abita Jockamo IPA and my taste buds rejoiced with the experience of this wonderful IPA.

This IPA is really different from others I have tried – the blend of semi-sweet malts and not overly bitter hops provides a wonderful blend of drinkability. The 6.50% ABV was surprising, so moderation is definitely in order.

I am not sure if Jockamo IPA will replace Sweetwater 420, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, or Terrapin Rye Pale Ale as one of my Top 3 favorite beers; time will eventually tell the tale. I am certain that Jockamo IPA will end up in my favorite’s rotation, and show up during this upcoming season of Falcons tailgates.
