Category 3 is an American IPA brewed by Due South Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip pint glass from a can.
The IPA pours a cloudy orange and is topped by a thick cap of soapy, off-white foam. The head reduces slowly and leaves little residue. The liquid has an unfiltered appearance with sediment visibly afloat in the glass.
The aromatics are faint but pleasant with a scent of citrus.
Hop-forward palate features grapefruit with a dry, bitter lemon finish. Malt presence is minimal with an underlying flavor of caramel.
Its feel has a medium body and moderate carbonation.
The Category 3 is self-described as a Florida IPA. Presents fairly well with an aroma and palate that’s a straightforward and nice representation of the style. Overall, a solid IPA.
