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.

3.69/5  rDev -3.7%
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- 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.

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: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

3.74/5  rDev -2.3%
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.

3.8/5  rDev -0.8%
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.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

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.

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

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.

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

Amber, very slight haze, cream colored head fades to thin layer but hangs on.

Aroma is mostly hops, with orange, pine and a little spicey/ herbal note. Nice hop nose. Malt comes across a little more subtly as bread crust.

Very well balanced IPA with somewhat aggressive bitterness, matched by and juicy/ spicy hop flavors and aromas. Malt is clean and carries the hop, crisp well attenuated toast & cracker flavors with a little spicy character. I might guess there was some rye malt in this.

Very tasty American IPA. Not sure I would call it West Coast style, this is in the range that any good American IPA could fall into. Maybe hops are a little more in your face at packaging but this can, dated 6/17/15 was as hoppy as it needed to be 4 weeks later.

Thanks to cousin Joe for the solid FL ipa!

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.

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.

Received as an extra in a trade from Gdirt, thanks Greg!

Nice bright citrus, hoppy aroma and flavor. Tried in the same sitting as Cigar City Jai Alai, and I thought it was superior to the Jai Alai. I would drink this beer again.

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.

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.

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..

On-tap at Hoptomic. The brew pours a hazy golden copper hue, and is capped with a persistent ecru froth; lace is deposited. The nose is citrus, tropical fruit and sappy evergreen notes; all hops, with maybe the fainest crackery malt underlying. The flavor keeps up with the nose, but offers more of a overripe citrus and mango sap note than the aroma suggested. Again, the malt is an afterthought. The feel is medium-bodied, and suits the brew well. Overall, a good job, and enough to pique my interest in this Jax brewer; a visit is due in short order.
