There’s a lot of good brewing going on up there, and unfortunately I just don’t get a lot of it. Every so often I can get north just far enough to grab a few. That’s how I got a can of Intuition Ale Works’ highly regarded flagship beer People’s Pale Ale (5.3% ABV, 28 IBU).
This is a pale ale for IPA drinkers. It’s not incredibly light on hoppiness like a Pilsner would be. Instead, it’s just a touch removed from an English-style IPA, which is, in turn, a good step from a traditional West Coaster. It’s still a pale, though, and won’t overly attack your taste buds. It’s malted with two-row barley and caramel malts, and then hopped with a mellow mixture of Magnum, Willamette, and Cascade.
It has such a classic flavor that it’s no wonder it’s beloved in North Florida. Clean, more floral than citric, and with a smooth mouthfeel. I’ve heard tell that, especially as south as Orlando, it’s pretty hard to get your hands on it.
I understand why. The people have spoken.
