The West Coast comes to Jax with this extremely hoppy, true India Pale Ale. Our two-row malted barley and caramel malt come to life with a ?@!#-ton of Northwest hops. We use 4 different hops during the brewing process and during dry hopping. It’s music to your nose.

Produces a generous beige head of loose bubbles from the can. Copper or medium amber and fully transparent. Pungent, spicy hop aromas mingle with grapefruit and a subtle suggestion of Grand Marnier. Orange loaf also comes to mind. A medium bodied beer with a moderate level of carbonation and plenty of bitterness. Definitely West Coast inspired as advertised. Bitter herb and tangy grapefruit flavors stand out on the tongue, but the malts can be found if you go looking. Dry finish.

Nice head, which diminishes quickly. A pale color, almost red when held to the light. A citrusy aroma, but it wasn't there as much in the taste. A bit carbonated, but the other beer I had here was, too, so I don't know how much of that was the beer. Seemed like the little brother to the Portland IPAs I'm used to.

Pours a slightly hazy orange golden color with just off-white head. Citrus, floral pine and grassy notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice resinous hop bite and a bit of hop spice.

Intuition Ale Works "I-10 IPA"
12 oz. can, coded "PKGD 10/07/14 I THINK I CAN"
$1.67 @ Winn Dixie #0199, Jacksonville, FL

Brightly resinous and piney hops greet you in the nose of Intuition's I-10 IPA. They're not overdone - there's just enough to be clear about what's going on - and the sweetness of the malt behind them smooths the dank edges and sort of pushes them at you.

As might be expected, the flavor is just as hoppy - also without being overdone - and again there's a sweetish biscuity and doughy malt that livens them. Grapefruit is quite clear, as is resinous pine, damp earth, pineapple, and citrus pith but beyond that there's also a hint of lemon, orange or tangerine, and mango. As you go from sip to sip the malt steps forward here and there, revealing that it's fairly complicated in and of itself. What appeared at first as the basic 'blueprint' biscuit malt for an IPA suggests wheat, grass, and a fuller depth of 'grainy' flavor. Both the hop and the malt components combine, but also stand to a certain extent on their own. Finally, a stiff bitterness centers it, and not unlike the rest of it's components, it's not overdone. A dry but not raspy-bitter finish leaves you satiated but still ready for another sip.

Sometimes brewers can get carried away when formulating beers in thinking that "more is more", but they've kept this one from going over the edge... it steps up to the edge and looks over but always remains far enough back to retain great drinkability.

Canned 8.14.14. Drank 9.15.14. Poured into a 20oz red wine glass, because I'm classy like that.

Headed down to Saint Augustine, FL for a little vacation and decided to see if the local options had anything enticing. Of course I knew I would be able to pick up anything from CCB, but wanted to investigate the Jacksonville options. Well, after a week of trying a few of the more readily available JAX beers, I have found my go to for all future visits.

A: Three finger hard pour. Big bubble pits, and great head retention. Head is milky white, very sticky with generous lacing. Liquid is unfiltered honey in color, bordering on bright copper... deep and hazy. Carbonation is visible and lingers.

S: Pungent. Inside, outside... you could smell it from a few feet away. Very fresh and biting. Ripe nectarines, tart peach, citrus rind, lemon zest, and dank hop oils. Pretty damn fantastic and appropriate for siting out enjoying the ocean mist.

T: Carbonated malt up front, followed immediately by heavy hitting hop bitterness, and a sticky tartness which stays with you for quite some time. Resinous and juicy to start, then transitions into citrus rind, soft florals, and strong bitter pine oil. Could benefit from a stronger infusion of sweet fruit flavor to contrast the bitterness.

M: Medium body, crisp carbonation, big time chewy, finishes dry with a feeling of caked on tree sap.

O: A hidden gem from the JAX coast. My new go to whenever I am in the area and can get it fresh. Easy to love for committed hop heads, plenty of biting hops, strong aroma, and quite tasty.

As I live in Jacksonville, FL this is my go to beer at most eating establishments. It is consistent with lots of smooth hop flavor. Since I prefer beers from the tap this one is almost always available locally.

12 oz can courtesy of fthomasl pours a lightly hazed orange color with a large cap of creamy off-white head. Pretty good retention and great lacing. A good-looker.

Nose is juicy citrus with a tropical flair - lime/papaya, orange/mango. Malt is light but there is some sugar cookie dough back there if you look for it.

There is a lot to like here, lots of hop flavor and plenty of bitterness with a worthwhile grainy malt base. Very juicy, very quaffable IPA - quite impressed. The alcohol is very well hidden and could sneak up on you after a few (which would be easy to do). Im glad I got to try it, but bummed I only had the one can.

Overall - Uninspiring for me. This beer is tasty. Good for newcomers...

Bottle as a great extra from CRon_T. Thanks! Pours honey colored with a fluffy white head. Smell is perfumy and fruity, floral and tea like. Mango, orange scents. Taste is moderate bitterness and fruity. Smooth body, pretty easy drinking and tasty. Full slightly rich body with normal carbonation. Lightly sweet somewhere near the finish with a good dose of bitterness as well. Bordering into DIPA territory for me and pretty tasty.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours copper and clear, forms a huge three finger crown of white lacing. Good retention on this one with loose smattered lacing.

Floral and piney hops with a backing of orange citrus. The malt adds some honey and bready sweetness for balance. A bit of dankness and lychee on the finish.

Bready malt has some caramel and honey sweetness and gets quite grainy near the finish. Hops are mild with orange citrus, pine and resin, some honeydew in there as well. Medium bitterness and some drying to go with a dull pine and touch of garlic.

Smooth and medium/easy body with enough carbonation. Alcohol is masked well and it does start to dry. The lingering grain and herbal/garlic edge is a turn off.

Highly drinkable IPA, smooth carbonation and light body. Hops are pedestrian IPA in strength with the melon flavor being the bright spot.

A- slighthly hazy honey gold with a light tan head. The head sports some very coarse bubbles and it thins out pretty quick, and it leaves decent lacing while it lasts.

S- my first impression is grassy, but it shows some really fresh notes of lemon and or zest as we'll. If you look deep enough it has a some dank hops to offer as well. The grains come through nicely as well.

T- fresh citrus peel, fresh grain, resiny hops. really light a and refreshing

M- light/medium bodied, refreshing. Active carbonation.

O- I would buy this again. Refreshing and balanced.

Can from Tipples. Pours deep golden colored with a fluffy white one finger head. Beautiful aromatics with pine, grapefruit citrus, and floral notes and a sweet malt backbone. Really nice. Flavor is sweet pineapple, mango, grapefruit, pine, dry grassiness, and a light honey sweetness from the malts to balance the big bitter on the tongue. Resinous and juicy to start, but with a lightly dry finish and bubbly carbonation. Very crisp on the finish Nd makes you want to come back for more. This is really good. Seems extremely underrated. This is near perfect for a single IPA for me. I am really having trouble finding any flaws in this...well now gets a little oniony as I go but still very solid.

Pours a clear medium orange with big soapy offwhite head, big clump in the middle of the glass sticks around, blobs of lace lining the glass. Smell: quite resiny, floral / perfume, stone fruit and light caramel back. Taste: juicy peach, pine, citrus rind, wheat biscuit. Sweet, resin and prickly bitterness in the finish. Canned 4/2. Worth a try. (To me this doesn't have any of the "bad Summit" aspects, to which I'm usually very sensitive).

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

This had tons of life with loads of bubbly carbonation but the color seemed a tad light. The color was somewhere between a yellow and an orange but relatively clear.

The aromas were strong on the onion, earthy, humid forest type but then turned fruity with grapefruit and orange rind. Very interesting.

The flavor seemed less diverse with a floral start and an orange rind finish. The finish is quite bitter with a harsh and astringent feel.

It's always tricky to review beers that seem to be well received but your experience is not up to that standard. I'll have to try it again in hopes I find it better.

Pours a clear golden color some hints of orange. Nice big fluffy off white head fed by single bubbles releasing form the bottom looks good.

Aroma is nice bright and hoppy mostly pine resin in the front with some citrus underneath some light malt sweetness underneath the hops. Nice nose on this one.

Taste is about same good hop notes pine resin and citrus mostly grapefruit in nature. Some light caramel sweetness good hop flavors but not overly bitter, be a good starter IPA or great for someone who doesn't want to scrap hop resin off there tongue.

Mouthfeel is light side of medium carbonation about the same lighter side of medium.

Overall not a bad IPA easy drinking be good brew if your on the beech in Jacksonville FL. Personally like my IPA's with little more kick but good.

Got this one thru a trade.... an extra that was more than a sleeper....
.
Drank it straight from the can so disregard the appearance score... and the smell mostly as I smelt it thru the can...

Smell.... dank hops... piney resin, grapefruit... and fresh... smelt very good..

Taste... instant dank resinous hops hits and stays to the back top of your mouth thru the finish and well into the aftertaste... slight citrus pineapple/grapefruit sweetness in there...

Mouthfeel was well carbonated medium to heavy body with a nice crispness to it..

Overall I was very surprised... this was a very good beer from start to finish.. in my opinion it rivals with the likes of its California brothers... don't have it by me but if I was in a store that had my other favorites too... I'd buy this one once every 4 or 5 times..

Cloudy, copper-orange. Thick, two finger, off-white head turns to a pretty solid cap. Good lacing.

Extremely resinous right off the bat. Pine and resin are definitely the dominant force. Some grapefruit sneaks past after it sits a little bit.

Just like the nose the pine resin rules the taste. Get a sense of malt before finishing earthy and floral. Slightly resinous aftertaste. Medium body with good prickly carbonation.

Pretty straight forward. Easy drinker. No complaints, but I can easily grab an assortment of comparable brews off any shelf.

Very Hoppy beer, with some kick to it.

Served at the brewery located in Jacksonville. It is their best seller there.

They also serve a sampler platter with 5 beers to let you try out the other beers.

Nice little pub feel located in downtown area of Jacksonville. No parking, but
cool little place once you get inside.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium orange with a haze-free body and a moderate effervescence. Head is two fingers of tan foam with a bit of an orange cast. I rather like it.

Smell: funky, grapefruity hops dominate the aroma, but a little bit of caramel sweetness comes through from the malt. A little bit messy, but overall not bad at all.

Taste: a raspy bitterness comes through right up front and maintains through the finish. Piney, funky, citrusy hops are strong and dominating, although the sweetness is pretty high for balance. Pretty good, but it lacks finesse.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a light-to-medium carbonation. Not particularly creamy, but prickly enough for the style.

Overall: this is a pretty good IPA if you like 'em rough & ready. Unrefined, but unapologetic.

Not bad, not bad at all. Solid IPA,very enjoyable, good balance between the hops and the malt back bone. Discovered this one simpy cause the local Publix in North Florida I was at was out of another Florida IPA and had removed their entire lineup from the cold box and replaced it with Intuitions 3 current year round offerings. Business wise I can understand as it is brewed in Jacksonville. A decent average IPA that I am glad the brewery is getting a push from the local Florida Publix's though I am not overwhelmed by this beer yet with time and more revenue I can see Intuition developing into a fine brewery and I look forward to their development.
