Beer added by: nickfl on 01-26-2011

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.

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

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).

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.

A - Pours with one and a half fingers of white foam, resting on top of a hazy, orange-copper body. The foam settles slowly and leaves nice, thick lace.

S - Pungent hop aroma with lots of pine and tropical fruit. Some bready malt in the background with just a hint of caramel.

T - Sweet malt up front with some bready character and a hint of toffee. Pine hop flavor in the middle with a hint of floral character. The beer finishes with dry bready malt and a strong, somewhat harsh bitterness.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a very dry finish.

D - The hop aroma is excellent, thought the flavor is a bit weaker. The fruity hop nose is rich and juicy but it is more one dimensional flavor wise with pine and some spicy, floral notes that just don't live up to the aroma. There is bready malt character throughout but it gets so dry in the finish that it leaves little to balance the stiff bitterness. Drinkable, but with a touch more flavor and some residual sweetness to even out the finish it could be even better.

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.

Had this at the brewery. A must check out place if you're in St. Pete. Very nice ipa. Their double is very tasty as well.

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.

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.

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.

A: Copper color, large off white head, great lacing

S: Pine hop smell, malts in background, decent amount of smell to it

T: Piney hops upfront, resoney hop taste in transition then slight malt sweetness to balance, balances well

M: medium, good carbonation

O: Great beer, I have it every time I visit Jacksonville, eager to try others from intuition.

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.

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.

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

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.

3.69/5  rDev -3.4%
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.

CAN
Pale amber with webbed white froth. 4
Super floral, resin, citrus nose - but some sour malt, too. 4
Salted caramel backbone, then grapefruit, pine sap, vegetal hops. 3.5
Oniony ending and dried grassy linger.
Light more than medium, crisp, sharp, tinny. 3.5

Columbus, Summit, Cascade, Centennial; “red wheat malt”(?)

The first blast of aroma when the can popped was stunning - and that’s about as good as it got. There’s a harshness to the hops which is them stewed too long, over-dried hops, or overdosed on Summit - maybe all three - which, together with a lot of metallic, makes it more abrasive than its 55 IBUs. Don’t see where the wheat is helping the pale color or the thin body. Not one to go back to; though maaaybe these same flaws could make it a great “ice cold when it’s 95” beer. 3.5

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.

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.

12 oz. can poured into a shaped DFH pint glass. Thanks to Brendan for sending this one.

A - Pours copper with a two fingers of off-white head. The foam dies quickly, but leaves a thick halo around the edge. Good lacing.

S - Smells of stale grains, some citrus hops, and sweet bread. I'm not a big fan of the aroma. Smells more like an English IPA thn a West Coast IPA.

T - Strong citrus hops throughout. Sweet and malty enough to balance. Dry and bitter finish.

M - Medium body with an underlying smooth carbonation.

O - I didn't really enjoy the aroma, but the flavor made up for it. Very balanced IPA with good malt and a bitter finish. I always appreciate a good IPA from a can as well. Pretty good stuff.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Pours a clear red/orange with a nice fluffy white head.

Smells of grapefruit, pine, some stone/pitted fruit, along with a slight sweetness.

Taste is odd astringent/onion hop character up front that goes into a more unpleasant grassy/vegetal character that lingers into the finish. Almost has a chemical-like taste...odd.

Light to medium body with medium to low carbonation and no real signs of the abv.

The aroma and appearance had me excited for this one, but it has a surprisingly grassy/astringent character that is not pleasing, along with an odd, really dry vegetal taste in the 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.
