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!

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2013 Picked up another single of this to try again. Here uit is, over two years later, and again the sample appears to be spoiled. Huge head, sour vineous small and taste... Sheese! 11/15/2011: Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Super foamy and over carbonated - head like a merenge pie. Aroma of hops, sort of winey overtones. Taste is rough - lots of hoppiness but in a rough way. No malt taste - just a sour / bittier hoppiness. Maybe this is going bad. Maybe I shouldn’t rate a possibly spoiled brew. Maybe those who make beer should take the reasonable steps to assure that they deliver a product to the public that does not stink. It pisses me off to buy brews that suck because the brewers lack the compentence to make a product that will taste well when marketed through normal channels. This is a poor brew and I won’t be trying it again.

12oz bottle from Chuck’s poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy orange with 2 fingers of frothy white head. Aroma is heavily citrus hops. Taste is heavily bitter. Pine and citrus with some nice grapefruit. Light bodied with a thin texture. Flat carbonation but a long bitter finish. Overall, very good. Something I would like to drink again.

Purchased at Hyde Park Wine & Spirits in Cincinnati, OH; enjoyed during the 2nd week of the NFL season on a rainy Sunday afternoon. This was bottled on Aug ’10 and consumed on Sept ’11, so I hope it’s still ’good’. Appearance a very very cloudy dark gold with a very frothy white head, possibly the most head out of a pale ale I’ve seen yet. Aroma is heavy on the citrus hops, almost a little too citrusy but it’s still nice, a bit sweet as well. Taste also pretty hoppy for a pale ale, dominated by the more citrusy hops. Medium body, above average bitterness for the style, carbonation I’d say is somewhere between average and above average. As it warms there’s a apricot flavor that comes through as well. To be honest I’m pretty happy with this one, good stuff. Above average pale ale.
