Not too much aroma, good hop flavor throughout. Not quite as big as I expected.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clean and crisp. Yelllowish orange, with a small white head. Hops dominate, but a little malt, solidly in the back ground. Thin bodied, which seems to be a positive in this beer. Very nice.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I go from one of my favorite beer styles to one of my least favorite beer styles. This one poured a small sized tan rocky head with fine-small sized bubbles. The body of this beer was cloudy with carbonation observed and a copper hue. The nose was malty and hoppy and the flavor was very, very bitter and it left a lingering aftertaste. The mouthfeel was very tingly, medium bodied and a dry texture. There was a fair amount of lacing with this beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This brew poured a large head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting very light brown colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing and a transparent softly carbonated light brown colored body behind. The aroma is kind of flowerey mixed with dough. The mouthfeel is very biting, bitter and full of hop flavor. A strong APA for those that like them.

Not a bad Pale Ale. Tasted a little bitter (hoppy) and reminded me more of an IPA. Decent body and character. Not a bad beer for someone who wants something with taste.

Bottled. This was a surprise. Good APA. Nice solid hop bite along the west coast flavor.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tonight we had a few beers and some food at BBC, beer was bland lacking flavour, cardboard, moth balls, and malty . Food was like frozen Mrs. Paul's fish. Bar and restaurant were not clean, from the front windows to the tables. Beer is much better in bottles, stay away from BBC they have hit rock bottom. their Pale Ale in bottles is pretty good otherwise their beer is a drain pour , its no wonder so many people take the trip to New Albany Indiana for good beer, drain pour the BBC and go to Richos for some good beer (3.8 rating for bottled BBC APA)the one from the tap is just plain disgusting !

What a fine beer! Very tasty. The aroma seemed to indicate a sourness, but there was little of that to the flavor. The color is darker than one would expect from a Pale Ale, and the taste is livlier. It made for an enjoyable drinking experience.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium copper color. Medium head. Aroma is malty and spicy. A medium bodied American Pale Ale. Malts are very pronounced, a touch sweet and fruity. But the hops dominate, grapefruity, piney, spicy and bitter. Way over balanced to the hops. Almost made me think it was a west coast APA. Tasty, interesting beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is bitter.
