An American standard, BBC APA is a full bodied and heavily hopped American Ale. It is copper in color and brewed with a blend of pale and crystal malts, balancing the citrus and pine flavors from large doses of American and English hops to create a very drinkable, hoppy ale. BBC APA is a hophead’s dream!

Pours a hazy dark caramel amber color. Medium white head, reducing to a small sticky topping and thick ring. Aroma carries some very nice citrus and tropical hops supported by moderate caramely malt, hoppy fruity, and sweet and very inviting. Medium body. Very firm bitterness cut by malt. Slick and fairly creamy. The bitterness comes on strong about 3/4 through then mellows through the finish of medium to long duration. Balanced enough that the bitterness does not overtake. Pretty nice.

Not for me. Orange brown white off white head. Would have called it burnt orange if I liked it more. Aroma of grapefruit and lemon. First impression of the taste was that I was drinking a lemon scented cleanser. I like most of bbc, just not this. It looks and smells nice. Does that count?
