As noted in another review, the fantastic hop aroma in this brew doesn't totally transfer over to the taste. I didn't get as much of a kick as I was hoping for when I tasted it, however the taste was very pleasant and enjoyable. It drinks more like a pale ale, but still with that great hop aroma. I had a blast visiting Intuition and would be happy to make an afternoon out of enjoying their beer anytime I'm in town. They let us sample their dubbel out of the tank on the tour, and I think that will be spectacular. They'd also just acquired 2 Woodford Reserve bourbon barrels and were really pumped about them. Just a fun time to be around this crew.

Pours a deep orange color with hardly any head. There is also very little lacing on the glass. It seems almost thin. The smell makes up for that though. Piney hops dominate the aroma. Tastes are more fruity - citrus and apricot. All in all I like the taste. Thes brew is very drinkable and goes down well. A nice selection for a local Jville brewery.

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.

Filled my growler today, pouring into a pint glass.
A: Thick, 2 finger, white with a darker tint, very bubbly, frothy, sticks to the rim as it dissipates, head retention up to par, carbonation looks excellent. Filtered, extremely light amber / brown hue.
S: Can you say hops? Potent dank hop aroma off the bat, very dominant. Undertones of some sweet malts.
T: The dank hops have a resiny, grapefruit taste. Turns to a sour green apple feel on the back end of the gulp, as it splashes to the throat. Malt profile is somewhat lacking, caramel sweet notes are there but could use a bigger backbone to balance the hops. Extremely potent hop juice taste lingers after each sip, guessing from a good amount of dry hopping.
M: Hoppy bitter from the start to finish, feels like a bubbly burning sensation. I really like the relatively high level of bitterness (reminds me of Lagunitas' Hop Stoopid), it balances out the light body making for a slower, more enjoyable drinking experience.
O: One of my favorite IPAs in general and love that it is locally produced (only 20 minutes down the road). For the style, it is relatively one sided towards the hop profile but we are talking IPAs so in that aspect A+. Implement a more sturdy malt backbone and I-10 would be recognized nationally.

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..
