Had this on tap at the 3F brew pub, because they were out of almost everything else. Something about a mad rush the friday night before. I've had many alpha kings, but decided to give this one a try.
Golden in color, decent head, diminished perhaps a bit faster than I would have liked.
Smell was of clean hops, since it was described as an "american mild", I wasn't expecting that. This beer certainly smelled like an APA and later on I realized that was what it was. Citrusy aromas.
Taste was very smooth and well balanced. I could drink quite a few of these during a tailgate.
Nice feel on the tongue as it went down.
Overall a very well done beer, well balanced in almost every way.
Serving type: on-tap

3.71/5 rDev -5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Poured this bad boy into a snifter and was dark gold/light amber in color. The head was approximately 1 finger, maybe a little more, but I was a bit disappointed with the head as it faded away pretty fast. Can't be upset with that beautiful golden/amber hue, though.
Smell: Definitely got the citrus notes upfront. Although I could pick up a hint of the malty undertones, I felt I had to really search for them.
Taste: Pride & Joy is a very balanced beer. Goes down nice and easy. Nothing too overpowering here. A little on the bitter side for the aftertaste, but the malt and hops have a nice little conversation, balancing each other out. Definitely mild.
Mouthfeel: Smoooth. Doesn't linger around or leave your mouth super dry. Again, definitely mild.
Overall I thought it was a solid brew. I don't think I've ever been disappointed with anything from FFF. It's not necessarily a beer I would wet my pants over, but I wouldn't be upset if I had to drink it. The beer definitely fits the description of "mild." Incredibly balanced in every aspect. Would have maybe liked it to be a bit more crisp, but I can't be upset over what it isn't.

3.9/5 rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Serving: Bottle into footed pilsener
Served: 7 April 2014
Appearance: Crystal clear with an amber tinge. A small white, foamy white head on the top that diminishes to about a half a finger and leaves good lacing.
Smell: Citrus and floral hoppiness dominate the nose, but there is a slight hint of malt sweetness.
Taste: A nice assertion of citrus hoppiness on a sweet malt backbone.
Mouthfeel: Perfect carbonation for the style. Body fits what I would expect for a 5% APA.
Overall: Another great beer by FFF, and one that I think is sometimes overlooked. This one is comparable in quality and taste to SNPA, though this one has a slightly thinner body in my opinion, and is just slightly darker. Would recommend, especially for those beginning to explore the hoppier sides of craft beer.
