Abita Brewing Company (Abita Springs, Louisiana) has officially announced that the newly-reformulated Jockamo Juicy IPA will join the brewery’s Year-Round portfolio in late September 2020.
An updated take on Abita’s Jockamo IPA that originally debuted back in 2008, Jockamo has now evolved to become a double dry-hopped Hazy/Juicy India Pale Ale featuring Citra, Apollo and “a blend of experimental hops.” Clocking in at an easy-drinking 6% ABV, Jockamo Juicy IPA “produces tropical and fruity notes that will leave you wanting more!”
“Our take on the IPA started over 12 years ago in 2008 when we originally released Jockamo, the first IPA crafted in Louisiana, to celebrate our rich and unique culture through the beer’s bold flavor” said David Blossman, President and CEO of Abita Brewing Company. “This new juicy style of Jockamo is an even bolder IPA, with intense hop flavors and aromas. Featuring brighter, more tropical tones, this beer pours a vivacious gold color with a distinguishing haze.”
“Jockamo Juicy IPA is the result of our brewing team testing new experimental hops and piloting numerous combinations and variations,” says Mark Wilson, Brewmaster of Abita Brewing Co. “We used this as an opportunity to highlight a blend of these experimental hops, in addition to Citra and Apollo hops, to give Jockamo its tropical-forward flavor and aroma.”
Jockamo Juicy IPA is rolling out now with availability in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft. You can expect to find this new Year-Round offering at craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana and throughout the rest of Abita’s distribution area. Prost!
