Bold City Mad Manatee IPA has a medium, frothy, off-white head, an opaque, orange appearance, lots of tiny tan chunks or bits, and some lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of subdued hop oil and fruit, and the flavor is of sweet white bread, low-level hop bitterness, and fruit. Mouthfeel is high medium, and Mad Manatee finishes drying and drinkable.

Solid IPA. Very refreshing. Had a six of it on the beach near Jacksonville on a hot day. It was a good choice. I would buy it again.

A: Hazy burnt orange color, 1 inch khaki colored head, good lacing

S: Caramel malts, floral, piney hops

T: I get the caramel sweet malts up front, the piney hops come in next but not as strong as I would like, resiny aftertaste that is not too unpleasent

M: Medium

O: A decent IPA, I like a good malt balance and this one definitely has that but the hops are not big enough to counter the malt base that is established.

Pours clear copper with a thick cream head, smells of citrus with a thick cedar backing, tastes of sharp citrus with slight cracker, mouthfeel is thin with a sharp dry finish,

It's just alright. This is a brewery that gives the impression of not being very hop-centric, and IPAs are just not really their thing, apparently. It's dark amber, decent head but not much aroma, kind of piney and citrusy but subdued. The malt dominates and the whole thing is kind of muddy. Finish fails to integrate or convince you that you made the right decision in ordering.

Amber hued and extremely murky in appearance. There's a quarter inch of tan to beige resting on top. There is some moderate lacing. The aroma is difficult to seek out but I do get some citrus notes. The flavor is a dulled citrus and grapefruit dominated IPA. The light malt is clearly overwhelmed by the hops. The intense hopping causes a deep hop burn on the tongue.
