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!

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?

Bottle. Pours copper with a small beige head. Very light aroma of sweet malts and citrus. Flavor of moderate sweet malts and earthy and citrus hops. Finish is more toward the malty side with a touch of citrus and pine hops. Also a strange herbal note.

probstblueribbon (3281) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2012
12 fl oz bottle via my bro, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear copper with a nice light tan foam. Aroma: Strong caramel and sweet, sugary malts, grapefruit and marmalade, rye bread crust, fairly citrusy, a little pine/resin, a touch savoury/brothy, quite fruity, some berries, maybe apricot?, nice. Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence. Flav.: Much more stark than the nose, quite resinous, a bit floral, fairly earthy, not nearly as friendly, dry, earthy malts, a little burnt sugar, quite different from nose; dry with strong bitterness and a stark, earthy, stern finish.

Holy bipolar brew, Batman!
