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.

Received as a gift from my bother-in-law. Thanks Moe! Felt compelled to write a review.

A - Poured this one into my Cigar City pint glass. About one finger of white foam, resting on top of a slighty hazy, copper-tinted body. As the head fades out it leaves behind thick, chunky lacing.

S - The hops hit you the moment the can is popped. A strong pine hop aroma punch dominates with a touch of tropical/fruity malt. Their goal was to create a "West Coast style" IPA- on smell alone they nailed it!

T - Pine hop flavor up front with a touch of sweet malt, perhaps hint of toffee. The beer finishes with dry biscuity malt and a strong, astringent hoppy bitterness.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation, and a rich feel.

O - Though not being a big IPA guy, I really like this one. The aroma and taste is excellent. I-10 is very drinkable, but could use just a touch more malt flavor or some sweetness to help its balance.

on tap at the brewery

Poured a crystal clear amber with a very durable off-white head that left good lacing.

Aroma and flavor reflect more piney than citrusy hops; so not my ideal. Some herbal aspects mid-taste on. Moderately bitter (for style). Body is smooth but a tad too light. Very good carbonation.

O: a solid IPA with no apparent flaws but not particularly outstanding in any way.

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.

12 oz can into a pint glass. Big thanks go to Stakem for hauling this one back from FL for me.

Pours a clear copper, with a couple fingers of foamy bright-white head. This maintains roughly a ½ finger or so of rich froth, which soaps the sides of the glass with lace. The aroma smells of pine, grapefruit, and spice, with a big underlying malty push of grainy toast and some sweeter caramel. The nose definitely has some flavor to it but overall isn’t very airy in the nostrils.

The taste is at least a bit more forceful with the hops, with a zesty grapefruit character and herbal tones that are buffered underneath by a malty backbone of toasted grains and caramel. This is definitely more balanced than the nose; with this finishing fairly aggressive as pith and pine stick to the tongue after each sip. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a firm creaminess that fills up the mouth but then glides along on some underlying oiliness. This has a little bit of warmth to it as well, which really brings out that assertive finish at times.

There were definitely some things to like here but the maltiness of the nose made me think that maybe this can had some age on it. It’s hard to say since the balance improved a lot in the taste once this warmed. I was intrigued enough though to check it out if I ever run across it again.
