Pours a duller amber red with a slight orange hue and a finger of off-white foam.

Pine and citrus hits the nose up front, but biscuity and caramelly malts lend sweetness to the aroma. However, the aroma is overall rather dull.

Pine and citrusy notes play in the flavor as well, but seem more muted. The biscuity and caramel malt backbone overpowers the hop bitterness.

Light-bodied, medium carbonation, leans sweet, minimal bitterness.

Overall, while this is a drinkable beer and has a fantastic label, it needs bit of work. Rather underwhelming, but still easy drinking.

12 oz can (thanks LJ) served in a Fat Cat glass.

Hazy copper body with a moderate size white head.

Aroma: mild for style; dominated by hops but with more malt aroma than one might expect.

Flavor: Moderate complexity and low bitterness for an American IPA.

Feel: near medium body; medium carbonation; slightly dry finish.

Overall: a well-crafted, flavorful but mild IPA.

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,
