Abita Brewing Company Releases NEW Jockamo Juicy IPA

Jockamo Juicy IPA Can

Louisiana’s original and largest craft brewery, Abita Brewing Company, is adding a new brew to its annual lineup. Abita Brewing Company, founded in 1986, continues to be Louisiana’s largest craft brewery. Abita’s state-of-the-art facility produces more than 125,000 barrels of beer and 13,500 barrels of soda per year. The brewing company features 13 year-round brews, including fan favorites Abita Amber, Purple Haze, and Louisiana exclusive The Boot, a line of seasonal brews and limited series, and craft sodas. Adding to that line is the new Jockamo Juicy IPA, a Double Dry Hopped India Pale Ale that has an intense hop flavor and aroma. The new Jockamo Juicy IPA will be available beginning this week at retail locations.

“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.”
