3.85/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear golden color some hints of orange. Nice big fluffy off white head fed by single bubbles releasing form the bottom looks good.

Aroma is nice bright and hoppy mostly pine resin in the front with some citrus underneath some light malt sweetness underneath the hops. Nice nose on this one.

Taste is about same good hop notes pine resin and citrus mostly grapefruit in nature. Some light caramel sweetness good hop flavors but not overly bitter, be a good starter IPA or great for someone who doesn't want to scrap hop resin off there tongue.

Mouthfeel is light side of medium carbonation about the same lighter side of medium.

Overall not a bad IPA easy drinking be good brew if your on the beech in Jacksonville FL. Personally like my IPA's with little more kick but good.

Got this one thru a trade.... an extra that was more than a sleeper....
.
Drank it straight from the can so disregard the appearance score... and the smell mostly as I smelt it thru the can...

Smell.... dank hops... piney resin, grapefruit... and fresh... smelt very good..

Taste... instant dank resinous hops hits and stays to the back top of your mouth thru the finish and well into the aftertaste... slight citrus pineapple/grapefruit sweetness in there...

Mouthfeel was well carbonated medium to heavy body with a nice crispness to it..

Overall I was very surprised... this was a very good beer from start to finish.. in my opinion it rivals with the likes of its California brothers... don't have it by me but if I was in a store that had my other favorites too... I'd buy this one once every 4 or 5 times..

Cloudy, copper-orange. Thick, two finger, off-white head turns to a pretty solid cap. Good lacing.

Extremely resinous right off the bat. Pine and resin are definitely the dominant force. Some grapefruit sneaks past after it sits a little bit.

Just like the nose the pine resin rules the taste. Get a sense of malt before finishing earthy and floral. Slightly resinous aftertaste. Medium body with good prickly carbonation.

Pretty straight forward. Easy drinker. No complaints, but I can easily grab an assortment of comparable brews off any shelf.

Very Hoppy beer, with some kick to it.

Served at the brewery located in Jacksonville. It is their best seller there.

They also serve a sampler platter with 5 beers to let you try out the other beers.

Nice little pub feel located in downtown area of Jacksonville. No parking, but
cool little place once you get inside.

3.74/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium orange with a haze-free body and a moderate effervescence. Head is two fingers of tan foam with a bit of an orange cast. I rather like it.

Smell: funky, grapefruity hops dominate the aroma, but a little bit of caramel sweetness comes through from the malt. A little bit messy, but overall not bad at all.

Taste: a raspy bitterness comes through right up front and maintains through the finish. Piney, funky, citrusy hops are strong and dominating, although the sweetness is pretty high for balance. Pretty good, but it lacks finesse.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a light-to-medium carbonation. Not particularly creamy, but prickly enough for the style.

Overall: this is a pretty good IPA if you like 'em rough & ready. Unrefined, but unapologetic.

Not bad, not bad at all. Solid IPA,very enjoyable, good balance between the hops and the malt back bone. Discovered this one simpy cause the local Publix in North Florida I was at was out of another Florida IPA and had removed their entire lineup from the cold box and replaced it with Intuitions 3 current year round offerings. Business wise I can understand as it is brewed in Jacksonville. A decent average IPA that I am glad the brewery is getting a push from the local Florida Publix's though I am not overwhelmed by this beer yet with time and more revenue I can see Intuition developing into a fine brewery and I look forward to their development.

Drank from a can with a Georgia Theatre coozie intact.
Immediately smell the hoppy freshness right after cracking open the can. Nice pine/citrus hops with a very nice sweet malt backbone. Grapefruit comes through a bit on the end. Very nice beer overall. Gonna let this one warm up to grab more flavors.

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at CCB Brewpub. Served in a pint glass.

A: Clear gold with a thin white head atop moderate visible carbonation.

S: Pine and melon-spice hops over lightly sweet bready malts.

T: Follows the nose. This is quite balanced without having an excessive amount of caramel malt flavor, which is a plus for me. Moderate pine bitterness in the hang

M: Average body for style, minimal alcohol presence, carbonation on the low side for style.

O: Enjoyable, but nothing I'd actively seek out again.

A- pours bright-orange copper in color with a two-finger white creamy head, long retention

S- pine and citrus hop with some grapefruit notes, a bit of caramel malt sweetness

T- citrus hop, grapefruit notes, pine notes mid-palate, the back-end is quite sweet with caramel malt flavors. Dry finish with a lingering resin hop and tropical notes

M- medium body with moderate carbonation, somewhat thin mouthfeel with a bit of a foamy finish

O- some good flavors coming through, but they seem just a little off balance. Still enjoyable and easy drinking fie the ABV.

I poured this from the can into a tulip style glass. There was three fingers of foam with some stickyness. The lacing was light over the orange beer. This beer is relatively clear.

The nose on this beer has nice flowering hops. It isn't a hop bomb, just some lighter hop presence on the top.

The flavor on this beer is decent. It has some citrus and a some malt in there. The balance is a little off. This beer is pretty good. I would like to try this on tap to compare to the canned version.

A-cloudy amber with a cream stable head

S-creamy citrusy hops. medium strength. some age to it.

T-comes in with a strong flavor of aged citrusy hops. it's a very thorough and somewhat grainy flavor. matching after-taste. fair lack of bitterness.

M-creamy medium carbonation with a nice creamy finish

O-it really doesn't have the best flavor, but it is extremely crisp and drinkable. i went through this real quickly because it went down so easily. i wouldn't discourage you from going out and trying this, it might even be worth getting the 6-pack.

A: Poured a orangish color with good carbonation and a nice white cap that provides some nice head retention, bubbles and light lacing

S: Caramel, citrus bouquet and pine

T: A noticable caramel malt with some light grapefruit, prange peel which transitons into a little bit of pine resin. The finish is pretty clean, some sort of light metal like twang, light booze sting and light hop bitterness

M: Medium bodied, well carbonated, pine and citrus sit on the palate.

O: A pretty good IPA. Balanced and I would drink again.

Finally getting caught up on my reviews from the 4th of July. Fron a 12oz can into a snifter. The brew appears a clear amber color with a tan cap that receeds
leaving patchy lace sticking to the glass.

The aroma is sweet and toasty grain with an inclusion of citrus hops that are a bit herbal. Quite rindy with a touch of alcohol across the back as it warms up.

The taste is toasty and sweet like caramel grain and then it turns catty with herbs and a pulpy hop bitterness. It lasts long into the aftertaste with resins and fruity bitter pulp flavoring that is quite herbal.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It displays a big hop impact and bitterness with little alcohol inclusion. Not the best ipa but pretty good as far as canned offerings go. It is worth a try but nothing to get crazy about.

12 oz can into a pint glass. Big thanks go to Stakem for hauling this one back from FL for me.

Pours a clear copper, with a couple fingers of foamy bright-white head. This maintains roughly a ½ finger or so of rich froth, which soaps the sides of the glass with lace. The aroma smells of pine, grapefruit, and spice, with a big underlying malty push of grainy toast and some sweeter caramel. The nose definitely has some flavor to it but overall isn’t very airy in the nostrils.

The taste is at least a bit more forceful with the hops, with a zesty grapefruit character and herbal tones that are buffered underneath by a malty backbone of toasted grains and caramel. This is definitely more balanced than the nose; with this finishing fairly aggressive as pith and pine stick to the tongue after each sip. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a firm creaminess that fills up the mouth but then glides along on some underlying oiliness. This has a little bit of warmth to it as well, which really brings out that assertive finish at times.

There were definitely some things to like here but the maltiness of the nose made me think that maybe this can had some age on it. It’s hard to say since the balance improved a lot in the taste once this warmed. I was intrigued enough though to check it out if I ever run across it again.

A - 4.0 - Orangey gold, a finger of attractive light tan head that sticks around for a while and leaves behind nice rings of lacing like a striped sweater. Nice.

S - 4.0 - A really nice fresh floral-honey combo wrapped up in soft orange and pine notes. Very nice.

T - 3.5 - Low-mid bitterness level of the pine variety that lasts on the palate for a good while after swallowing. A slightly vegetal note in with the floury malt. Interesting to see someone here say the same thing. I feel like that note is on the edge between something that tastes weird and something that gives interesting character. Normally I'd give a 3.5 to something that was better than average, nothing wrong with it, but not notably good. This one gets a 3.5 because parts of it are notably good and parts detract.

M - 4.0 - Medium bodied. There's something happening in here that I wouldn't quite call dryness, but it's almost a powder sensation, sort of like cocoa but without any cocoa flavor. Maybe more like flour. I haven't experienced this before. It's interesting.

O - 4.0 - This brewery is kind of uneven. They've got some unremarkable middle of the road beers, some kind of amateur tasting beers, and some pretty good ones. This falls in the latter category. I particularly like the aroma, which is just delicious.

on tap at the brewery

Poured a crystal clear amber with a very durable off-white head that left good lacing.

Aroma and flavor reflect more piney than citrusy hops; so not my ideal. Some herbal aspects mid-taste on. Moderately bitter (for style). Body is smooth but a tad too light. Very good carbonation.

O: a solid IPA with no apparent flaws but not particularly outstanding in any way.

Received as a gift from my bother-in-law. Thanks Moe! Felt compelled to write a review.

A - Poured this one into my Cigar City pint glass. About one finger of white foam, resting on top of a slighty hazy, copper-tinted body. As the head fades out it leaves behind thick, chunky lacing.

S - The hops hit you the moment the can is popped. A strong pine hop aroma punch dominates with a touch of tropical/fruity malt. Their goal was to create a "West Coast style" IPA- on smell alone they nailed it!

T - Pine hop flavor up front with a touch of sweet malt, perhaps hint of toffee. The beer finishes with dry biscuity malt and a strong, astringent hoppy bitterness.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation, and a rich feel.

O - Though not being a big IPA guy, I really like this one. The aroma and taste is excellent. I-10 is very drinkable, but could use just a touch more malt flavor or some sweetness to help its balance.

Pours a clear red/orange with a nice fluffy white head.

Smells of grapefruit, pine, some stone/pitted fruit, along with a slight sweetness.

Taste is odd astringent/onion hop character up front that goes into a more unpleasant grassy/vegetal character that lingers into the finish. Almost has a chemical-like taste...odd.

Light to medium body with medium to low carbonation and no real signs of the abv.

The aroma and appearance had me excited for this one, but it has a surprisingly grassy/astringent character that is not pleasing, along with an odd, really dry vegetal taste in the finish.

12 oz. can poured into a shaped DFH pint glass. Thanks to Brendan for sending this one.

A - Pours copper with a two fingers of off-white head. The foam dies quickly, but leaves a thick halo around the edge. Good lacing.

S - Smells of stale grains, some citrus hops, and sweet bread. I'm not a big fan of the aroma. Smells more like an English IPA thn a West Coast IPA.

T - Strong citrus hops throughout. Sweet and malty enough to balance. Dry and bitter finish.

M - Medium body with an underlying smooth carbonation.

O - I didn't really enjoy the aroma, but the flavor made up for it. Very balanced IPA with good malt and a bitter finish. I always appreciate a good IPA from a can as well. Pretty good stuff.

Filled my growler today, pouring into a pint glass.

A: Thick, 2 finger, white with a darker tint, very bubbly, frothy, sticks to the rim as it dissipates, head retention up to par, carbonation looks excellent. Filtered, extremely light amber / brown hue.

S: Can you say hops? Potent dank hop aroma off the bat, very dominant. Undertones of some sweet malts.

T: The dank hops have a resiny, grapefruit taste. Turns to a sour green apple feel on the back end of the gulp, as it splashes to the throat. Malt profile is somewhat lacking, caramel sweet notes are there but could use a bigger backbone to balance the hops. Extremely potent hop juice taste lingers after each sip, guessing from a good amount of dry hopping.

M: Hoppy bitter from the start to finish, feels like a bubbly burning sensation. I really like the relatively high level of bitterness (reminds me of Lagunitas' Hop Stoopid), it balances out the light body making for a slower, more enjoyable drinking experience.

O: One of my favorite IPAs in general and love that it is locally produced (only 20 minutes down the road). For the style, it is relatively one sided towards the hop profile but we are talking IPAs so in that aspect A+. Implement a more sturdy malt backbone and I-10 would be recognized nationally.

A: single finger head. Murkey amber.

S: wet and mildly hoppy

T: hoppy, piney with floral notes with a bitter aftertaste, more so than I like in my IPAs.

M: mild to moderate carbonation. Semi dry finish. Medium to full body.

O: as IPAs go, this is good but not memorable.

On tap at Kickbacks

A-Pours copper in color with just a slight haze. One finger off white head stays for a minute or so settling down to a thin cap of foam that leaves some wispy lace.

S-Strong hop nose here. Citrus hops are predominant with some piney/resiny undertones. I'm trying to detect some malt but can't pick any up. But thats ok by me. The nose is all about the hops.

T-Hoppy and more bitter than I anticipated (again, thats ok by me). Juicy citrus, a bit of resin. Some caramel malt coming through that I couldn't detect in the nose providing a slight nod to balance, but the hops are certainly front and center.

M-Medium body and carbonation. Dry finish.

O-A nice IPA that I enjoyed. Especially for a hot summer day in Florida.

On-tap at Hoptomic. The brew pours a hazy golden copper hue, and is capped with a persistent ecru froth; lace is deposited. The nose is citrus, tropical fruit and sappy evergreen notes; all hops, with maybe the fainest crackery malt underlying. The flavor keeps up with the nose, but offers more of a overripe citrus and mango sap note than the aroma suggested. Again, the malt is an afterthought. The feel is medium-bodied, and suits the brew well. Overall, a good job, and enough to pique my interest in this Jax brewer; a visit is due in short order.

Poured on-tap at the brewery in JAX, the beer was served in a pint glass. The beer presents a lovely bright yellow-orange color, with a thin ring of bubbles around the glass. Orange citrus and green hoppy aromas. This beer leaves a great lacing along the glass. Mid-bodied, with a flash of orange flavor before a truckload of hops punch you in the mouth. Very peppery and green on the finish. Good length of linger on this beer for all the flavor it carries. Creamy bodied, and almost a "thickness" that allows you to really absorb all the different nuances of flavors the beer has in store for you. Two thumbs up!
