Tried this on tap at one of my favorite restaurants. They were out of what I wanted, so I went with something local. The appearance is pretty weak for a pale ale. It was very clear and only slightly darker than an American macro. The head was mediocre, but did have a nice lace.

The smell resembled no other pale ale I can recall. Smelled like an American macro.

The taste did nothing to change my opinion that this really is an American macro because it tasted like a pilsner I can get anywhere, only slightly more hoppy. Tastes like an American macro.

Felt like an American macro. A bit more bitter, but mostly like an American macro.

Overall, this was pretty bad. It was so bad that my next drink was a glass of water. Ultimately I contend that this isn't really a pale ale, but actually an American macro.

Bottle received as an extra in a trade. No apparent freshness info. Poured in to tulip.

A - Hazy medium orange with a thin layer of cream coloured head.

S - Big sweetness with caramel and honey aroma. The hop profile is seemingly non-existent.

T - A slight bitterness up front but the hop profile is very subdued overall with a huge caramel malt sweetness dominating this beer. This definitely seems old/

M - Light body with moderate carbonation.

O - I am pretty sure that this was an old beer. That said, there was no freshness info available, so I can't be sure. As such, I have reviewed this beer without taking freshness in to account.

12 oz can poured into a snifter. No freshness info.

Pours out a cloudy deep orange copper color. Retains a nice full slightly off white colored head with pretty good lacing.

Smells a little bit like it's past it's prime. Old cardboard, stale hops a bit woody. Along with that some very light grapefruit citrus, resinous aromas.

The taste is a bit better than the aroma. Still has some stale hop, wet cardboard taste, but not as bad. Slight resinous piney woody hops balanced a bit by some biscuity, light toasted malt.

Average mouthfeel for a pale, maybe a hint of tartness perhaps from the age of this beer.

I'm guessing this is around a year old. Really a shame. Could've greatly benefitted from a canned on date.

A decent sessionable ale, but I would have liked a bit more hoppyness. Some of the other beers by Intuition are better.

Have this on tap @ 3 different places in town. this review is from notes near first of the year.

A: dark off yellow with a small head. served @ 36F, too cold. spare lacing, lots of bubbles. clear body, filtered.

S: Strong hops detected..more like an IPA. Very little malt, or sweetness detected in nose. Pine, some grapefruit.

T: WOW dales IPA/APA clone surprise. lol. again too be expected the brewer learned on w/c is a hop head. If he relabeled it a IPA it might be closer to style, AN APA its not. its an unbalanced mess. oily, sticky tasting mess.

M: semi smooth until you gag on the hops. Nice Carbonation.

O: I keep trying it hoping it get better, but so far, its not my thing, hop lovers, may like it, maybe.

I know these folks are trying but many of them need to apprentice under a real experienced brewer before they decide to open a brewery IMHO. but since folks in this town are hurting many take what they can get I guess. Still overpriced @ brewery for 14OZ.

On tap at Miller's Ale House in Jacksonville, FL.

Pours a medium golden amber, with a half inch head, and a small amount of lacing.

Smells pretty malty for a pale ale, toasted, caramel hops, and a little bit of grapefruit and pine.

This is just a pretty unremarkable pale ale. It tastes pretty good, but it doesn't stand out in any meaningful way. It has no bite, at all- the little hop flavor there is consists of pine, and grassy hop flavors, with the slightest smidgen of grapefruit. The malt flavors are more out in front for sure. There's balanced, and then there's just forgettable.

This is medium bodied, with a very crisp mouthfeel and a higher level of carbonation.

My first beer from these guys and I'm not overly impressed.
