This a very bold and rich pale ale. It approaches being an IPA but has enough malt to keep it a PA. Nicely done Mia.

It says it's a pale ale, but it smells and tastes like one hell of a juicy IPA...

Every now and then you run into a pale ale that is really a closet IPA - this is one of those. Super juicy to the nose and mouth, this pale has that hop punch to the palate you find in some NE IPAs. So, I gave and I took some style points for stepping out. Overall, a very good beer, one that should be experience as often as possible.

A great pairing with lots of fine dinners. The aroma and hoppiness suits me well. Very drinkable. Try it.

I would put this toe-to-toe with Half Acre Daisy Cutter and Three Floyds Zombie Dust any day of the week. An absolute masterpiece.

Riding high on the hops of Citra, Mosaic and Galaxy, the MIA Beer Co. pulls out this universal cheat code for hops to ensure that their pale ale finds favor with Florida hop head.

Medium amber and building a firm off white froth, Mega Mix teases the nose with a rife perfume of over ripened citrus, stone fruit and stemmy herbs. It's slight citrusy dankness is followed by an initial taste of caramel, pecan and and medium toasted savory taste.

As the flavors unfold, the caramel and honey stews about the middle palate and soon joined by macerated oranges, grapefruit, mango and apricot, all seemingly on the slightly bruised variety. Building a medium bitterness on the late palate, a grassiness of hemp, spruce and fresh grassiness adds balance to the linger of malt.

Medium bodied and malty dry in texture, the beer's even keel bitterness allows for a moderate dryness to join the moderate sweetness with the hop spice wining out slightly in a medium length tea-like finish of peppery herbs and fruit peels.

Very heavy citrus. Grapefruit-mango. But, well-crafted beer.

5 oz pour on tap. This is a super crushable pale ale. Huge citrusy/tropical fruit aroma and flavor with a soft, pillowy mouthfeel. No alcohol comes through. Delicious.

slightly hazy gold color with good white cap and lacing.

Aroma of citrus, piney, herbal hops with a bit of yeasty bread.

Taste is of floral, spicy hops well integrated together. I also get a bit of grapefruit zest and something that tastes like peach blossoms smell. Fairly complex and these flavors blend well together. Just a small amount of bready malt but enough to offset the hops somewhat.

Medium full texture with balancing carbonation.

A Pale Ale that another brewer might well call an IPA, which is just an observation on my part. It is a well crafted brew however labeled.

12 oz can from ATL with a April 2018 canning date.
Pours with a very hazy, amber body topped by a tall off-white head that has good retention and that leaves loads of lacing.
Pungent, hoppy aroma.
The flavor has high strength and moderate bitterness for style. Good balance between the hops and malts with notes of tropical fruits, caramel and light bread. Juicy.
Medium+ body with medium+ carbonation.
Overall: drinks like a mild N.E. IPA.
