look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: half to single finger head. Clear and amber.

S: really have to try to find an aroma with this one. Not there in a significant way per my nose.

T: this is a great representative of its genre. Hoppy and crisp however not overwhelming. Aftertaste of hops lingers. Oily to some extent. Citrus and pine notes.

M: medium body. Oily and moderate carbonation.

O: a great pale ale. The first beer I had by this brewer and a "go to" beer where available.

pint at a Florida pub very near brewery.

A fine clear amber color covered by a thin head that soon dissipates to some islands and a ring, but leaves some lacing on glass. {a second sample several monthas later had a more durable head). Dark for a pale ale, the appearance accurately indicates a boldy flavored pale ale.

A nice hoppy aroma with obvious citrus and piney notes. The flavor is more citrusy and less piney than the aroma. It is also more hoppy than their Simcoe IPA (consumed just 2 days earlier). Its really quite bitter and hoppy for a pale ale and will appeal to many people who like IPAs. Good to very good, but I'd like it better with a bit more malt.

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.

On tap at Kickbacks served in a standard pint. The brew appears a clear burnt copper color with an off-white head and streaming carbonarion. A thin layering maintains across the top from the rising bubbles that lasts throughout the duration.

The smell is fruity and floral with a light toasty caramel grain quality that accents the sweetness of the hop quality quite nicely. A touch of alcohol is noted and increases in boldness as the brew warms up.

The taste is fruity and floral from the hops with a backing of caramel maltiness. The malt gets toasty towards the back. Some modest bitterness increases as it warms and has a nice herbal to mineral finish. Some yeasty notes are evident in the aftertaste.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. A decent take on the style overall but nothing to get worked up about. I wouldnt hesitate to order this again if options were slim but considering the vast offerings at kickbacks...onward to something else.

Poured on-tap at the brewery in JAX, this beer was poured in a pint glass. The beer pours a cloudy yellowish orange-gold coloring with a very thin film of off white, small bubbled head. Light, roasty hops characteristics on the nose. There are strong sweet and syrupy caramel flavors in the backbone of this beer, with subtle peppery hops that mingle throughout, as well as mainline the finish. The aftertaste is almost astringent it's so dry. Creaminess to the aftertaste is very confusing considering the finish, but the beer is pretty damn tasty.

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.

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.

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: rich orange hue with a moderate haze and a strong effervescence. Head pours a thick finger of frothy ivory foam which doesn't stick around too long. Color is great, though.

Smell: sweet malt with a big dose of citrusy, Cascade-y hops. Not bad, but a little homebrew-ey. Perhaps it is recipe formulation -- a very run-of-the-mill APA.

Taste: flavor tracks with the aroma, with a pretty strong bitterness toward the end. Decent, but nothing special going on here.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a good level of carbonation and a decent creaminess.

Overall: a drinkable, sessionable pale ale. I like it for this, although it's nothing new flavor-wise.

A: Poured a deep orange w/ good caronation, nice fluffy white head with good retention. Decent lacing as well.

S: Caramel, grapefruits and some grass

T: Caramel malt with some light spice meets grapefruit juice. A bit chewy, definitely not a West Coast APA. A subtle hop bitterness appears mid palate. The finish has a little citrus, light bitterness and somewhat dry

M: Medium bodied, well carbonated and as I mentioned earlier sordove a hearty APA

O: Not bad, not great but slightly above average.

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.
