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.

A: this one looks good, rich amber to golden yellow on the bottom. builds a frothy off white head fairly quickly, but doesnt stick around for long. the body is beautiful.
S: fairly inviting, decent amount of citrusy hops with no one
particular fruit smell pulling past another. some mild orange and lime hints. the more i strive however, the more muddled it seems and i grow less impressed. it was fairly potent as soon as i poured, but quickly dissipated.
T: wow this really just backed off. its not bad by any means, i just thought it was gonna have more to it based on my original impulse. i get some orange peel, some lemon or lime zest, and not a whole lot else. it falls a little flat to me... like its just some hop characteristic with not much flavor to back it up.
M: meh. its got decent amount of carbonation, but because the flavors are so flat it really just doesnt do much for me. it just gets kind of watery towards the backend.
D: ill finish it, but wont seek it out again. kind of boring.

I thought this was a Mild Ale and not an American Pale Ale. I never would have purchased it, otherwise. Besides being a bit peeved over the mis-labeling I thought this ale was just another run-of-the-mill American Cascade packed hop beverage. Its appearence was a light amber, plenty of head and a big whiff of cascade hops in the nose. The taste was dominated by the Cascades with a moderate malt background; the body was average. The finish smooth with a touch of sweetness.

Poured into a Surly imperial pint.

Amber in color. A foot of off white head. Cotton candy nose. Slightly bitter taste. Hop forward with some citrus. Plenty of caramel malt. Rather skunky finish. And gee... An aspirin like aftertaste. Incredibly average beer across the board. I guess 3 Floyds can't hit all homeruns.

Pass.

Translucent orange amber with a half inch rocky head that quickly settles into a thin layer with yeasty looking islands. Aroma is floral and not very pungent. The floral smell comes across in the taste as well. I would call it bitter and floral. If you swallow it 'hard' there is kind of an angry bitterness at the back of the throat. That is kind of cool! I would and will drink this again but there are many beers that I like more than this one.

Just noticed that this beer has an IBU rating of 29. I find this fascinating because I perceive it as being more bitter than DIPA's with five times the IBU rating
