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!

probstblueribbon (3728) - 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!

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