This is an under rated staple from a genuine brewery. Intuition makes legit drink and this deserves to be the flagship. Sure I wouldn't go out of my way, but if it's an option I'm on it. Best enjoy out of a tap but have gained great respect for what the guys in Jacksonville come up with. Haven't tried it, try it.

On tap at Mellow Mushroom

A-Pours a copper/bronze color with a one finger off white head that has good retention and leaves some lacing.

S-Surprisingly hoppy for a PA. Nice citrus and floral notes are very prominent and are complemented with a noticeable caramel malt back. The nice thing is the hops are clearly at the forefront with the malt playing nicely in the background.

T-Follows the nose with a nice and bitter hop bite-citrus and floral-leading the caramel malt comes in the middle but maintains its role as a supporting player letting the hops shine. Its not incredibly complex, but it is darn good and refreshing. If I hadn't seen the was a PA on the beer menu, I'd be inclined to think it was an IPA. Nicely done! One of the tastier PA I've had. And its a local too with the brewery being 20 min. from my house. I'm not being a homer. To be honest, I wasn't expecting much here, but Intuition delivered on this one. A very nice beer.

M-Crisp, medium body and carbonation, yet its just a touch oily on the finish.

O-A very enjoyable PA that I will certainly be enjoying again. A great summer beer. I wish I could grade in .25 increments. I can't quite give this one a 4.5 overall, but I would give it a 4.25. But, I can't do that, so it'll have to be a 4 overall.

Served in a standard pint at the Green Turtle in Fernandina Beach, the beer is bronze with clingy beige head.

It has an aroma of cascades and caramel malts. Reminds me of a Point cascade and that's not a bad thing.

The taste is in lock step with the smell, piney hops, some caramel malts for balance a bit grainy late. You have seen this before and they execute it in spades.

The mouth is spot on with mid-level carbonation and a bit of mouth coating oiliness.

I know APAs don't excite that many people, but this one is well executed!

A: half to single finger head. Clear and amber.

S: really have to try to find an aroma with this one. Not there in a significant way per my nose.

T: this is a great representative of its genre. Hoppy and crisp however not overwhelming. Aftertaste of hops lingers. Oily to some extent. Citrus and pine notes.

M: medium body. Oily and moderate carbonation.

O: a great pale ale. The first beer I had by this brewer and a "go to" beer where available.

A lovely red with a nice foamy white head.

Aroma of citrus hops and caramel.

Sharp metallic hop flavor mix with grainy cereal notes. Bitter.

Nice body that's not light or watery.

Overall a nice pale ale. Certainly one that flirts with IPA territory.

Intuition Ale Works "People's Pale Ale"
12 oz. can, "PKGD 08/25/14 RED WEDDING"
$1.67 @ Winn Dixie #0199, Jacksonville, FL

Appearance: Hazy deep-amber/copper body. Frothy head of off-white. Very good head retention. Better than average lacing.

Aroma: Citrusy hops (mainly grapefruit) & caramelish malt.

Flavor: Citrusy hops including a hint of lemon, some sweet orange, mild grapefruit, and pith. Some floral character and low-level pine is present as well. The hops appear upfront and combine with the malt across the middle. The malt appears more fully at that point as the hops begging to fade. It's more doughy with a caramel drizzle, than biscuity; and it's got a delicate honeyish edge to it. Low level hop bitterness. Pretty well balanced and rounded.

Mouthfeel: Medium leaning towards medium-light in body. Gently crisp with a moderate carbonation level.

Overall: Basic American pale ale with an emphasis on sweetish caramelish malt. Decent enough.

Poured on-tap at the brewery in JAX, this beer was poured in a pint glass. The beer pours a cloudy yellowish orange-gold coloring with a very thin film of off white, small bubbled head. Light, roasty hops characteristics on the nose. There are strong sweet and syrupy caramel flavors in the backbone of this beer, with subtle peppery hops that mingle throughout, as well as mainline the finish. The aftertaste is almost astringent it's so dry. Creaminess to the aftertaste is very confusing considering the finish, but the beer is pretty damn tasty.

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at CCB tasting room. Poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear copper with a one-finger white head and good lacing.

S: Tropical fruit, citrus, and pine hops with a lighter malt aroma in the background.

T: Tropical fruit & citrus pith hops, biscuit malt. Finish seems to be mango & grapefruit bitterness.

M: Heavier mouthfeel for an APA, but what I would consider medium for an IPA. Good amount of carbonation on tongue. Minimal alcohol presence.

O: I thought this was a pretty good beer. Not necessarily one I'd actively seek out again but definitely serviceable. My biggest complaint was that it seemed overly hopped to be categorized as an APA.

12 oz. can poured into a nonic pint. Thanks to Brendan for sending this one.

A - Pours the color of a shiny penny with great clarity. One finger of off-white head shows good retention and leaves a full lacing down the side of the glass.

S - Floral hops and grains.

T - Buttery malt, some floral hops, and spice.

M - Very smooth with medium body and micro-carbonation. Clean finish.

O - I was impressed by this APA. Perfect balance for the style and exceptional drinkability. Good floral hop presence and full flavored. I would definitely get this as a session beer if it were available to me.

It has a pleasant amber color and forms a nice foamy head and clings to the glass. The smell is mostly hops. The caramel and malt flavors are subtle. The citrus - grapefruit - and hops flavors are dominant on the palate, maybe a touch of bitterness. Being a fan of IPAs, it approaches that style.

A very drinkable pale ale. Personally, a littel less citrus or moe caramel/malt flavor would be ideal.

Pours a clear coppery amber color with white head. Citrus, floral notes, and a bit of hop spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a modest amount of malt, letting you know it's a pale and not an IPA. Very nice.

Pours a clear dark orange with a big, white head.

Smells of slightly pine and grapefruit hops with some floral notes and caramel malt.

Taste is caramel grapefruit up front that goes into a more bready middle with notes of pine before ending on a grapefruit and stone fruit finish. Slightly astringent and vegetal but pretty enjoyable overall.

Ligher body with low carbonation works well enough.

A caramel malt and grapefruit/pine hop forward pale ale that is workmanlike....not that that's a bad thing.

On tap at Kickbacks served in a standard pint. The brew appears a clear burnt copper color with an off-white head and streaming carbonarion. A thin layering maintains across the top from the rising bubbles that lasts throughout the duration.

The smell is fruity and floral with a light toasty caramel grain quality that accents the sweetness of the hop quality quite nicely. A touch of alcohol is noted and increases in boldness as the brew warms up.

The taste is fruity and floral from the hops with a backing of caramel maltiness. The malt gets toasty towards the back. Some modest bitterness increases as it warms and has a nice herbal to mineral finish. Some yeasty notes are evident in the aftertaste.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. A decent take on the style overall but nothing to get worked up about. I wouldnt hesitate to order this again if options were slim but considering the vast offerings at kickbacks...onward to something else.

Poured from the can into a left hand glass.

Im drinking this beer as a celebration of finishing my most recent backpacing trip. Had it many times on tap including one of my first craft beers. first time in can though.

A-pours a deep caramel orange with nice head that slowly dissapates into a white cover over the beer.

S-smells delicious. Has a nice piney hop scent with a maltiness in the background.

T-Tastes of a thin caramel malty flavor up front with a well balanced hop bite at the finish.

MF-fairly thin body, but well balanced and fits the beer nicely.

O-This is a damn good beer. On tap all over jax and is always pleasant.

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: rich orange hue with a moderate haze and a strong effervescence. Head pours a thick finger of frothy ivory foam which doesn't stick around too long. Color is great, though.

Smell: sweet malt with a big dose of citrusy, Cascade-y hops. Not bad, but a little homebrew-ey. Perhaps it is recipe formulation -- a very run-of-the-mill APA.

Taste: flavor tracks with the aroma, with a pretty strong bitterness toward the end. Decent, but nothing special going on here.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a good level of carbonation and a decent creaminess.

Overall: a drinkable, sessionable pale ale. I like it for this, although it's nothing new flavor-wise.

I received this can from a BIF, and I am excited to try something new from this Florida brewery.

I poured the can into my over-sized tulip glass, and initially I had about three fingers of foam. This foam died down to a very thin scum over the moderately dark orange beer.

Off the top I get mild citrus with minimal malt presence. Seems appropriate for a pale ale.

The flavor is mild and clean. I get more of the citrus hopping, and something else there. It is almost like a little bit of tangerine or sweet orange. It mellows this beer well.

This is a very drinkable beer. Nothing there is so unbelievably challenging. Just a good example of an easy drinking pale.

Pours a slightly hazed copper color with about a inch of frothy foam. Laced the glass substantially. Smells of grapefruit and caramel. Taste is the same, notes of grapefruit and other citrus, mild hops and malt, and caramel back notes. Good overall mouth feel with decent carbonation and pleasant bitterness. Very good brew.

Canned 7.11.14. Drank 11.15.14. Poured into a 12oz shaker from a can.

A: Pours a picturesque amber with two fingers of light khaki head on an aggressive pour. Visible carbonation along the bottom of the glass, and large, light bubbles within the slow fading head. Leaves a patchy lacing until receding to a thin cap.

S: Soft grapefruit, strong caramel malt, and a certain musk that I can't quite define. Almost smells like damp hay.

T: Strong caramel malt right from the beginning, followed by a mild spicy hop bitterness. Grainy and earthy. Not at all what I expected from the same people who make I-10 IPA, or from a pale ale in general.

M: Medium body, light carbonation, smooth and slick from the abundance of malt. Leaves with a slight drying hop bitterness.

O: A commendable effort, but I feel it still needs a bit of refinement. It lacks the clarity, balance, and crispness that the APA style standouts exude. Not something I would seek out again, but I wouldn't necessarily turn down either.

pint at a Florida pub very near brewery.

A fine clear amber color covered by a thin head that soon dissipates to some islands and a ring, but leaves some lacing on glass. {a second sample several monthas later had a more durable head). Dark for a pale ale, the appearance accurately indicates a boldy flavored pale ale.

A nice hoppy aroma with obvious citrus and piney notes. The flavor is more citrusy and less piney than the aroma. It is also more hoppy than their Simcoe IPA (consumed just 2 days earlier). Its really quite bitter and hoppy for a pale ale and will appeal to many people who like IPAs. Good to very good, but I'd like it better with a bit more malt.

Served from 12oz can

A — Pours a deep bright amber color, with some reddish hues around the edges. Off-white colored head on it, leaves behind some spotty lacing.

S — Smells of rich malt, little bit of sweetness and a bit of a dry hop presence.

T — Pretty one dimensional, notes of sweet malts and lightly bitter hop notes.

M — Light-Medium bodied, easy drinker, refreshing enough.

O — A nice enough beer, just not a whole lot going on, which is OK i suppose.

A- pours an amber color with a small fizzy white head, decent retention

S- grainy malty mash with some sweet caramel notes, barnyard, grainy and earthy

T- flavor pretty much follows aroma, grainy and earthy was flavors of dried hay, there's some light hop bitterness on the finish

M- medium body with low carbonation, slick mouthfeel and finish

O- not exactly what I would expect from a pale ale, very raw and grainy

A: Poured a deep orange w/ good caronation, nice fluffy white head with good retention. Decent lacing as well.

S: Caramel, grapefruits and some grass

T: Caramel malt with some light spice meets grapefruit juice. A bit chewy, definitely not a West Coast APA. A subtle hop bitterness appears mid palate. The finish has a little citrus, light bitterness and somewhat dry

M: Medium bodied, well carbonated and as I mentioned earlier sordove a hearty APA

O: Not bad, not great but slightly above average.
