SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Created by Abita Brewing Co. of Abita Springs, La., the beer of the week is Jockamo IPA.

A traditional India Pale Ale, the drink is made with pale and light crystal malts that give the beer a copper color and malty flavors.

"It's a solid, American-style IPA," said Joe Hotek, the beer-room manager at John's Grocery, 401 E. Market St. "It features a nice, juicy, citrus flavor and aroma."

According to Abita's website, Jockamo IPA is dry-hopped liberally with Willamette and Columbus hops from the Pacific Northwest.

And with an alcohol by volume rating of 6.5 percent, this hoppy beer packs a respectable punch.

"Hoppy beers such as this one often pair well with spicy or cheesy dishes or to combat a hot summer day," Hotek said.

Abita recommends drinking Jockamo IPA with wild game, grilled meats, and Thai or Mexican cuisine.
