Pours a clear coppery amber color with white head. Citrus, floral notes, and a bit of hop spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a modest amount of malt, letting you know it's a pale and not an IPA. Very nice.

On tap at Miller's Ale House in Jacksonville, FL.

Pours a medium golden amber, with a half inch head, and a small amount of lacing.

Smells pretty malty for a pale ale, toasted, caramel hops, and a little bit of grapefruit and pine.

This is just a pretty unremarkable pale ale. It tastes pretty good, but it doesn't stand out in any meaningful way. It has no bite, at all- the little hop flavor there is consists of pine, and grassy hop flavors, with the slightest smidgen of grapefruit. The malt flavors are more out in front for sure. There's balanced, and then there's just forgettable.

This is medium bodied, with a very crisp mouthfeel and a higher level of carbonation.

My first beer from these guys and I'm not overly impressed.

Amber and sweet with a decent hop flavor but a bit heavy for the style. Unusual for a pale and just an "OK" brew.

Intuition Ale Works "People's Pale Ale"
12 oz. can, "PKGD 08/25/14 RED WEDDING"
$1.67 @ Winn Dixie #0199, Jacksonville, FL

Appearance: Hazy deep-amber/copper body. Frothy head of off-white. Very good head retention. Better than average lacing.

Aroma: Citrusy hops (mainly grapefruit) & caramelish malt.

Flavor: Citrusy hops including a hint of lemon, some sweet orange, mild grapefruit, and pith. Some floral character and low-level pine is present as well. The hops appear upfront and combine with the malt across the middle. The malt appears more fully at that point as the hops begging to fade. It's more doughy with a caramel drizzle, than biscuity; and it's got a delicate honeyish edge to it. Low level hop bitterness. Pretty well balanced and rounded.

Mouthfeel: Medium leaning towards medium-light in body. Gently crisp with a moderate carbonation level.

Overall: Basic American pale ale with an emphasis on sweetish caramelish malt. Decent enough.

A decent sessionable ale, but I would have liked a bit more hoppyness. Some of the other beers by Intuition are better.

Canned 7.11.14. Drank 11.15.14. Poured into a 12oz shaker from a can.

A: Pours a picturesque amber with two fingers of light khaki head on an aggressive pour. Visible carbonation along the bottom of the glass, and large, light bubbles within the slow fading head. Leaves a patchy lacing until receding to a thin cap.

S: Soft grapefruit, strong caramel malt, and a certain musk that I can't quite define. Almost smells like damp hay.

T: Strong caramel malt right from the beginning, followed by a mild spicy hop bitterness. Grainy and earthy. Not at all what I expected from the same people who make I-10 IPA, or from a pale ale in general.

M: Medium body, light carbonation, smooth and slick from the abundance of malt. Leaves with a slight drying hop bitterness.

O: A commendable effort, but I feel it still needs a bit of refinement. It lacks the clarity, balance, and crispness that the APA style standouts exude. Not something I would seek out again, but I wouldn't necessarily turn down either.
