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.

About the American IPA

The American IPA is the most popular craft beer style in the United States. And for good reason, too. When well crafted, its hoppy goodness delivers intense aromas and flavors that can be citrusy and fruity; floral and piney; earthy and herbal. The hops are complemented by a wide range of malts and other ingredients. It’s a popular playground for brewers to express their creativity and a veritable cornucopia for craft beer connoisseurs.
