Brewsday Tuesday: I-10 IPA
I heard Intuition Ale Works recently started putting their beer in cans. Since growlers tend to go flat before I can drink them I was very happy when I heard this. On my way out of Jacksonville I dropped by the brewery and grabbed a sixer of I-10 IPA.
Name: I-10 IPA
Brewed by: Intuition Ale Works
Location: Jacksonville, FL
Style/ABV: American IPA / 6.75%
Appearance: Pours a warm amber color with a fluffy white head. Decent lacing is present as the beer disappears.
Smell: Piney hop notes dominate with some bready malt in the background.
Taste: Opens up with some sweet malt notes, moves into the main event of citrus and piney/evergreen sap hops. Closes with some lingering bitterness. Tasty.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium carbonation.
Overall: Proof that good beer can come in a can. It is a little one sided to the hop side, but it is an American IPA. A little more balance on the back end and this one is a real winner. This beer gets extra points in my book for being brewed (relatively) locally. If you’re driving down I-95 make the quick trip to Intuitions’ King Street location and pick up a case or two.
Final Grade: B+
