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.
