American Pale Ale (APA) |  5.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
5.0% ABV, 30 IBUs - This beer is 3 Floyd’s American “Mild” Ale. With a more assertive hop profile that British Milds and a relatively low alcohol content this is a great session beer that still has Pale Ale characteristics. Pride and Joy is a golden color with a fruity nose and a light caramel sweetness to balance the crisp finish. A truly refreshing ale that drinks easily.

3.88/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance: This beer poured a slightly hazy, golden copper color with a coarse white head. The foam dissipated quickly until only a thin skin of bubbles remained on top of the brew. A light bead provided enough bubbles to sustain the layer. There was no lacing.

Smell: Right after the pour, there was a strong hit of citrus hops that was much stronger than I expected from this style. The hops remained after the beer had settled down, but they were joined by some warm sweet malt, light vanilla, hints of spice, caramelized sugar, and the lightest touch of fruit. It turned out to be subdued and nicely balanced.

Mouthfeel: Thin in the mouth, but overall smooth with hints of lively carbonation.

Taste: Like the aroma, there were more hops present in the flavor than I was expecting. They dominated completely, being citrusy and slightly herbal. Sweet malt and vanilla rose up to counter the bitterness in the middle and some sharp fruit made an appearance on the finish. Overall, hoppy and dry.

I've had a few milds in the past, but always on cask; I've never had one from the bottle. They were much less hoppy and, dare I say, milder than this version. I would have pegged this as a pale ale if I didn't know what it was beforehand. Still, a very tasty brew that I enjoyed.

Thanks for the bottle, Hero27

Imperial Pint consumed earlier today at the brewpub in Munster. Notes taken during the experience.

A- Deep golden bodied tap to pint glass pour with a thick, creamy-frothy two finger white creamy. Decent head retention while a medium ring means webs of thin lace.

S- Citrus hops and juicy tangerine tropical hops make up most of the nose with some light cracked grains and yeast character.

T- More yeast bread comes to light here but the hops are still the main player. Juicy tangerine and grapefruit with orange, pine, floral and mango. Slight bit of spice and fresh cracked cereal grains.

MF- Lighter end body but a substantial frothy foamy feel supports the juicy hops. Slight bitterness but smooth and sessionable.

A good mix of juicy fruit and citrus zest hops with a moderate yeast and malt base but it mostly comes in as a bright, hoppy session ale.

Serving type: on-tap
