Can. Pours a hazy orange color with an off-white head. Aroma is muted. Light citrus and a plain, malty sweetness. Flavor is decently dull as well. Citrus, subtle bitterness and a very agreeable maltiness. It's pretty bland. Pretty balanced. Left me wanting much more. Medium bodied. Didn't perceive much bitterness. Good carbonation. Won't remember this beer.

Bold City Brewery "Mad Manatee IPA"
12 oz. can, coded "212 14 11:33"
$1.67 @ Winn Dixie #0199, Jacksonville, FL

Appearance: Very hazy orange-copper body with visible particulate in suspension - most likely from dry hopping. The frothy off-white drops steadily to a wide collar. Lacing is average.

Aroma: Citrus and pine over a gentle golden caramel drizzled malt base.

Flavor: Bright hops combine citrus and pine with a subtle berry-like fruitiness (that could be from hops or yeast). A golden caramel character gives the grainy and biscuity malt charm, and it remains sweetish against a just-enough-to-balance bitterness along with a subtle, underlying tartness that's really quite unique. It finishes dry with lingering notes of pine and spice.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and moderately crisp before warming in the mouth to soften and become almost smooth.

Overall: A straightforward, clearly crafted IPA that's an accessible, reliable, and drinkable beer.

Medium hops, not complex, but pleasing. Good with pub food, and popular with our group.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with white head. Citrus and a little grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a hint of malt. Seems to be a lighter IPA, but still good.
