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.

4.15/5  rDev +8.1%

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. (637 characters)

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. (432 characters)

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. (837 characters)

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

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. (565 characters)

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. (698 characters)

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). (442 characters)

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. (610 characters)

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. (787 characters)

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.. (816 characters)

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

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. (550 characters)

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. (322 characters)

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. (810 characters)

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. (654 characters)

Drank from a can with a Georgia Theatre coozie intact.
Immediately smell the hoppy freshness right after cracking open the can. Nice pine/citrus hops with a very nice sweet malt backbone. Grapefruit comes through a bit on the end. Very nice beer overall. Gonna let this one warm up to grab more flavors. (303 characters)

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at CCB Brewpub. Served in a pint glass.

A: Clear gold with a thin white head atop moderate visible carbonation.

S: Pine and melon-spice hops over lightly sweet bready malts.

T: Follows the nose. This is quite balanced without having an excessive amount of caramel malt flavor, which is a plus for me. Moderate pine bitterness in the hang

M: Average body for style, minimal alcohol presence, carbonation on the low side for style.

O: Enjoyable, but nothing I'd actively seek out again. (521 characters)

A- pours bright-orange copper in color with a two-finger white creamy head, long retention

S- pine and citrus hop with some grapefruit notes, a bit of caramel malt sweetness

T- citrus hop, grapefruit notes, pine notes mid-palate, the back-end is quite sweet with caramel malt flavors. Dry finish with a lingering resin hop and tropical notes

M- medium body with moderate carbonation, somewhat thin mouthfeel with a bit of a foamy finish

O- some good flavors coming through, but they seem just a little off balance. Still enjoyable and easy drinking fie the ABV. (567 characters)

I poured this from the can into a tulip style glass. There was three fingers of foam with some stickyness. The lacing was light over the orange beer. This beer is relatively clear.

The nose on this beer has nice flowering hops. It isn't a hop bomb, just some lighter hop presence on the top.

The flavor on this beer is decent. It has some citrus and a some malt in there. The balance is a little off. This beer is pretty good. I would like to try this on tap to compare to the canned version. (494 characters)

A-cloudy amber with a cream stable head

S-creamy citrusy hops. medium strength. some age to it.

T-comes in with a strong flavor of aged citrusy hops. it's a very thorough and somewhat grainy flavor. matching after-taste. fair lack of bitterness.

M-creamy medium carbonation with a nice creamy finish

O-it really doesn't have the best flavor, but it is extremely crisp and drinkable. i went through this real quickly because it went down so easily. i wouldn't discourage you from going out and trying this, it might even be worth getting the 6-pack. (552 characters)

A: Poured a orangish color with good carbonation and a nice white cap that provides some nice head retention, bubbles and light lacing

S: Caramel, citrus bouquet and pine

T: A noticable caramel malt with some light grapefruit, prange peel which transitons into a little bit of pine resin. The finish is pretty clean, some sort of light metal like twang, light booze sting and light hop bitterness

M: Medium bodied, well carbonated, pine and citrus sit on the palate.

O: A pretty good IPA. Balanced and I would drink again. (527 characters)

Finally getting caught up on my reviews from the 4th of July. Fron a 12oz can into a snifter. The brew appears a clear amber color with a tan cap that receeds
leaving patchy lace sticking to the glass.

The aroma is sweet and toasty grain with an inclusion of citrus hops that are a bit herbal. Quite rindy with a touch of alcohol across the back as it warms up.

The taste is toasty and sweet like caramel grain and then it turns catty with herbs and a pulpy hop bitterness. It lasts long into the aftertaste with resins and fruity bitter pulp flavoring that is quite herbal.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It displays a big hop impact and bitterness with little alcohol inclusion. Not the best ipa but pretty good as far as canned offerings go. It is worth a try but nothing to get crazy about. (833 characters)

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. (1,338 characters)

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

A - 4.0 - Orangey gold, a finger of attractive light tan head that sticks around for a while and leaves behind nice rings of lacing like a striped sweater. Nice.

S - 4.0 - A really nice fresh floral-honey combo wrapped up in soft orange and pine notes. Very nice.

T - 3.5 - Low-mid bitterness level of the pine variety that lasts on the palate for a good while after swallowing. A slightly vegetal note in with the floury malt. Interesting to see someone here say the same thing. I feel like that note is on the edge between something that tastes weird and something that gives interesting character. Normally I'd give a 3.5 to something that was better than average, nothing wrong with it, but not notably good. This one gets a 3.5 because parts of it are notably good and parts detract.

M - 4.0 - Medium bodied. There's something happening in here that I wouldn't quite call dryness, but it's almost a powder sensation, sort of like cocoa but without any cocoa flavor. Maybe more like flour. I haven't experienced this before. It's interesting.

O - 4.0 - This brewery is kind of uneven. They've got some unremarkable middle of the road beers, some kind of amateur tasting beers, and some pretty good ones. This falls in the latter category. I particularly like the aroma, which is just delicious. (1,302 characters)

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. (392 characters)

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. (929 characters)
