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!

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.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2003 Re-rate:working my way through the sixer(exp,may03),I realized this beer has absolutely,no balance.Will NEVER buy again. Dark oarnge,light brown,ale. Good head that lasts,and is creamy. Aroma is big,herbal,smelling hops and is grainy as well.Mouthfeel is dry/bitter and it is medium bodied. Grainy malt flavors are stomped by the hops.Finish is astrigent and highly bitter.Not the same beer I tasted last year.Fresh bottle.

This refreshing copper-colored APA is assertively hoppy in both flavor, bitterness and finish. This was the highest ranked beer I tasted at the BBC brewery.

Dogbrick (7682) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2002
Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. This APA was much better than I was expecting. A great example of a microbrew APA, this is exactly how I would make it! Thick head over a dark amber body. Nice bittering effect and good finish.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2002
At the Brick in DC. Hoppy APA! Some malt touches with a bit of sweetness but all in all unbalanced. Still good, mind you, but out of whack a bit.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2003 Wow - I'm drinkin' a pine tree - those hops jumped out an bit the top of my tongue! Body is medium thickness, are there malts in there? we may never know. The finish lingers and becomse sweeter and dry, then you want another sip. Great for a hop fix, but lacks balance.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2002
Strong nose of pine and is that Kentucky bluegrass? Nice head but maybe too carbonated. Slight amber in the body. I think this should be called an IPA. There’s really no flavor besides the hops, which is not necessarily bad. Bitter at the start and end of the llllllong finish.
