COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Dark amber color. Strong flavor beyond hops. Make this one into an OPA and it might be ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Caramel-amber with fair, creamy, tan head / Mild, lightly skunky and earthy nose of cream, caramel, and citrus / Medium body, a touch watery and genuinely soapy, low fruit but with good balance and bitter finish / Modest flavors of caramel, dry hops, grapefruit, and soap / Somebody was sleep-walking through this batch.

Weak aroma with a beautiful cloudy orange/light brown color. Taste is good with slight bitterness at the end. Mouthfeel is smooth. Little head and lacing. Good beer great value

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2012 this is not a hophead dream. It is a sadistic fuckheads dream. Shit this is worthless, aspirin tasting shitty malts. I’m thinking this beer is way past its prime. No hop aroma or flavor at all. Malts tasted very stale.

Clear medium amber, head coating, tiny dots of lace. Decent American Ale, with all that implies: caramel malt and mild hops share the ride straight through the finish. A little carbonation completes the taste. Nothing wrong here.

Bottle. Sweet caramel malt and floral citrusy hops aroma. Hazy golden amber with a ginormous soapy off-white head, which took forever to recede. Sediment suspended throughout. Light malt and piney citrus hops. Medium body, slightly dry finish. Very hops forward. Personally, I would have enjoyed it more with some additional malt to balance the hops.
