COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship beer is an American-style pale ale that is inspired by the hoppy pale ales of the West Coast. Features two-row malted barley, caramel malt, and wheat malt. Magnum hops for bittering and the traditional pale ale hops of Centennial and Cascade for flavoring and crisp, citrus aromas.

The consummate Jacksonville beer. Light and balanced with a nice hop finish. Perfect for a day at the beach or a night on the town.

Bottle from UFS. Almost a sweeter imperial IPA. Excellent fresh nose. Great mouthfeel. Enjoyed the slight bitter back end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flavorful and refreshing, but the aroma and flavor for linger, which is both good and bad. The bitter hops don't overwhelm, but you're left wanting for savor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Draft at 7venth sun. Dark pure amber glass. Scattered lacing. Toasted caramel malts, and friendly English hops. Sweet malt sugar undercurrent, and a crisp, dryly bitter, hoppy finish makes for an exquisite balance even an Englishman would like. Well-constructed, solid. The name says it all. This is a very accessible, no-nonsense beer. More, please! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This pale really surprised me. I was not expecting the level of awesomeness that it had. Very balanced, nice light hop profile, simple bitterness. Overall, just tasty!

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2010 Pint at the brewery, first beer I tried at their grand opening party 11/20/2010. This was an excellent pale ale, one which I would have enthusiastically sessioned, except I also wanted to try their other offerings . Pour was dark amber with a medium white head, aroma of sweet pale malts and spicy, citric hops. Beautiful and delicious. This beer was a hop lover’s delight. Medium to full body. Flavors of sweet pale malts, caramel, and several varieties of hops. Full, robust flavor was quite excellent, even better than Sierra Nevada which sets the bar for this style. Don’t know what the ABV was, its not listed on their web site and I didn’t see it posted or listed in any of their materials at the brewery. I may update this rating after some more samples. ... . 12/12/2010.. Abv is 5.5% per info posted in the taproom.

On draft at Intuition. Pours a light amber color with an off-white head. Nose is some grass along with notes of citrus, orange, and some kumquat. Flavor is similar- nice malt presence with some orange and citrus. At 5.5%, this is a wonderful session ale. Light in body and finishes with lingering citrus hops.

My favorite IAW beer that I tried of the three. Dark orange-amberish pour Nice hop presence that was mostly grassy and citrusy. The malt had a caramel sweetness, but danced well with the hops. Bitterness at the end of a clean finish. Mighty tasty.
