I used to think this wasn't possible, but I think I saw someone simply drop the intelligence on the ground without using the Dead Ringer or running back to spawn or dying.

Is there a way to manually drop the intelligence/Australium in Team Fortress 2, and if so how?

Yes, there is a way indeed. The key is by default is L.

You can find it in the keybinding screen as "Drop the briefcase" inside the "TEAM FORTRESS" group.

The command is bound to the L key by default. – Kevin Yap Aug 19 '12 at 19:50
The command is labeled "Drop the Briefcase" and Kevin is right, it is 'L' by default. – Muhd Aug 19 '12 at 20:29
