I-10 IPAI-10 IPA
Notes: 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 [email protected]!#-ton of Northwest hops. We use 4 different hops during the brewing process and during dry hopping. It’s music to your nose.

Drinking this in The Mudville Music Room from a can poured into a pint glass by me
Appears light amber.
Smells floral, citrusy and lightly bready.
Taste follows the nose. Hop forward with enough malt to balance.
Mouth feel is medium for an IPA.
Overall, honestly this is one of my, "go to beers," when I visit Jacksonville. Sixers are widely available when in Jacksonville Florida.

I ordered this beer at a seafood restaurant in JAX Beach. It poured a clear copper color with a large, long lasting head. The aroma was hoppy, fruity, and very fresh. It had very nice bitter/hoppy taste typical of a good IPA.

I recently came across this by pure accident at a Mellow Mushroom in Avondale ( Jacksonville, FL ). I was stunned at the quality. This is a world-class IPA! As usual, I'll leave the beer particulars to the experts. But this is very much in my top 10 of US IPAs. Try it. You won't be disappointed.

On-tap at Hawkers Asian Street Fare in Jax.

Decidedly mediocre and middle of the pack in this era of super-hopped juice bombs. But still darn tasty with a refreshing fruity hop quality about it. Darker than most, filtered, and with a big soapy white head. Good body and finish. A pleasant beer but not something to seek out. Though it seems like a crowd pleaser for those summer time hosting nights.

A: poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass, copper colored with WAY TOO MUCH soapy head, hazy

S: lemon and pine

T: has a soapy taste, I'm afraid this has gone off, nothing but lemon and pine

M: medium to full, sticky

O: I think some of the off flavors shouldn't be there. I can't read the date on the can...

Pours a surprisingly red color, clearly favoring caramel malt. Head production and retention are good.

On the nose, there's a pleasant presentation of pine and citrus; very old-school, West Coast style hop selection.

Flavor follows: caramel malt backbone presenting toast and brown sugar, and classic hops yielding notes of pine, resin, grapefruit, and orange.

Crisp, lively, enough body to feel satisfying without becoming syrupy or thick.

Most Florida craft IPAs have been extremely disappointing to me (with the notable exception of Jai Alai). This one stands out. Not quite world class, but a very tasty brew.

Good IPA from Jacksonville Florida. Has a good feel and a pretty hoppy taste to it. Doesn't compare to green flash West coast IPA but available in most bars here so if it's all they got its good to tie one onto I think.

12oz can into a pint glass. packaged on 1/6/16, so 3 months old.

looks pretty good, hazy orange body with 1 inch white head which weakens but persists throughout. minimal lacing though.

not getting much on the nose at all, faintly fruity is all.

at 3 months old and little aroma, i was a bit apprehensive, but this is a tasty ipa. strong fruit taste of mango and some citrus followed by a nice hoppy wash. sweet on the front of the tongue, bitter on the back. nice.

mouth is medium, finish is slightly bitter.

overall, an enjoyable ipa. curious as to what a one month old would taste like.

12oz can into a spiegelau ipa glass

L - dark brown color. Surprisingly creamy head over an inch high

S - grassy earthy a bit funky and a tiny bit floral. Almost smells like sweet blue cheese. In a good way. A really good way

T - very grassy more floral than on the nose but not as funky of a taste. Lots of malt flavor but still has a lot of hoppy kick.

F - The hops not only bite your tongue on the way down but also grab on before you swallow. Lots of kick in this. I got used to it a little more than half way thru but I don't think I would want to drink more than 2 cans

O - this is a surprisingly big beer. Lots of malt and hop flavor. They are pretty balanced but not in complete harmony. Loved the smell but the flavor didn't follow up as well. The taste is somewhat impacted by the feel. The huge bite detracts from the whole experience

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.

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!

Aroma is slightly citrusy. Has a "hoppy" smell to it. Piney and dank in taste and definitely hop forward. Initially I didn't love it, but the more I've had it, the more I want it.

CAN
Pale amber with webbed white froth. 4
Super floral, resin, citrus nose - but some sour malt, too. 4
Salted caramel backbone, then grapefruit, pine sap, vegetal hops. 3.5
Oniony ending and dried grassy linger.
Light more than medium, crisp, sharp, tinny. 3.5

Columbus, Summit, Cascade, Centennial; “red wheat malt”(?)

The first blast of aroma when the can popped was stunning - and that’s about as good as it got. There’s a harshness to the hops which is them stewed too long, over-dried hops, or overdosed on Summit - maybe all three - which, together with a lot of metallic, makes it more abrasive than its 55 IBUs. Don’t see where the wheat is helping the pale color or the thin body. Not one to go back to; though maaaybe these same flaws could make it a great “ice cold when it’s 95” beer. 3.5

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.

T: Piney hops upfront, resoney hop taste in transition then slight malt sweetness to balance, balances well

M: medium, good carbonation

Nice head, which diminishes quickly. A pale color, almost red when held to the light. A citrusy aroma, but it wasn't there as much in the taste. A bit carbonated, but the other beer I had here was, too, so I don't know how much of that was the beer. Seemed like the little brother to the Portland IPAs I'm used to.

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.

Intuition Ale Works "I-10 IPA"
12 oz. can, coded "PKGD 10/07/14 I THINK I CAN"
$1.67 @ Winn Dixie #0199, Jacksonville, FL

Brightly resinous and piney hops greet you in the nose of Intuition's I-10 IPA. They're not overdone - there's just enough to be clear about what's going on - and the sweetness of the malt behind them smooths the dank edges and sort of pushes them at you.

As might be expected, the flavor is just as hoppy - also without being overdone - and again there's a sweetish biscuity and doughy malt that livens them. Grapefruit is quite clear, as is resinous pine, damp earth, pineapple, and citrus pith but beyond that there's also a hint of lemon, orange or tangerine, and mango. As you go from sip to sip the malt steps forward here and there, revealing that it's fairly complicated in and of itself. What appeared at first as the basic 'blueprint' biscuit malt for an IPA suggests wheat, grass, and a fuller depth of 'grainy' flavor. Both the hop and the malt components combine, but also stand to a certain extent on their own. Finally, a stiff bitterness centers it, and not unlike the rest of it's components, it's not overdone. A dry but not raspy-bitter finish leaves you satiated but still ready for another sip.

Sometimes brewers can get carried away when formulating beers in thinking that "more is more", but they've kept this one from going over the edge... it steps up to the edge and looks over but always remains far enough back to retain great drinkability.

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.

As I live in Jacksonville, FL this is my go to beer at most eating establishments. It is consistent with lots of smooth hop flavor. Since I prefer beers from the tap this one is almost always available locally.

12 oz can courtesy of fthomasl pours a lightly hazed orange color with a large cap of creamy off-white head. Pretty good retention and great lacing. A good-looker.

Nose is juicy citrus with a tropical flair - lime/papaya, orange/mango. Malt is light but there is some sugar cookie dough back there if you look for it.

There is a lot to like here, lots of hop flavor and plenty of bitterness with a worthwhile grainy malt base. Very juicy, very quaffable IPA - quite impressed. The alcohol is very well hidden and could sneak up on you after a few (which would be easy to do). Im glad I got to try it, but bummed I only had the one can.
