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!

This is a very good example of the APA style. Substantial aromatic hops, almost like Earl Gray tea.

One of my favorites. It is pleasantly hoppy without being overbearing. Color and flavor are what you would expect from a good pale ale. Aroma is slightly sweet and refreshing. Wonderful beer all around.

ppearance: clear, copper/amber hue, and an impressively fluffy, bubblywhite head. Aroma: fresh with citrus, pine notes, buzzing with hops, I like it, I like it! Kept my nose in a little extra length before imbibing, to savor this bold hoppy, fruity aura. Generous, full texture, warm mouthfeel, flooding every inch of the oral orifice, splashing more of that tasty, tingly hoppiness everywhere. Fine, tasty malt back-up is evidenced and appreciated, and still the hops will not quit the mouth. Refreshingly bitter and delicious with each encounter between the brew and the lips. Long finish, hoppy, sticky, a true hophead’s delight. Label says American Pale Ale, but this is more of an American-style IPA, if anything. And it was thoroughly enjoyed

This was fantastic. I had a huge glass of this in the Louisville Airport. Wish we had a place like this at home. Don’t you Piscator?

12 oz bottle. Pours to a slightly hazy, burnt orange color, with a thick, creamy, white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose on this beer is pleasing with fragrant aromas of pine and citrus, paired with aromas of toffee and caramel. The palate is firm with good biscuit, caramel malt, and toffee flavor, paired with a subtle back drop of citrus hop flavor. This beer finishes with more good sweet malty flavor up front, then ends with a tangy, citrus hop bite that slightly lingers. Well done, easy drinking APA, with good malt and hop character. I like the fact that the hop bitterness isn’t too overdone in this beer, yet still shines. A very good beer, from a very good brewery.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - APR 8, 2006
Rich nose of pine and citrus, spice, caramel & flowers. This brew pours a hazy orange amber. The off white creamy head is mostly lasting with a thin bubbly sheet of lace. The brew is bitter through and through with a full hops blast, and a high citric acidity. The finish is deep. The light to medium body is soft to lively and very dry.

Excellent APA. Nice grapefruit flavor mixed with strong hop/malt presense. Very enjoyable beer. It would be nice if it were available in this area. I believe this is my first Kentucky beer. I really enjoyed it.

obguthr (3652) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Marvelous aroma of grapefruit, pine, caramel, and thistle with a hint of strawberry. Opaque ochre, medium vanishing off white head, nice lacing. Dry and bitter with pronounced grapefruit notes. Medium body. Finish is pine with a bit of tar that doesn’t really detract. Not all that complex, but very enjoyable. Actually quite unique and particularly well done.What an unexpected delight!

(On tap.) This was one of the best American pale ales I have had yet, but it still falls short, in my opinion, of Great Lakes’ burning river, which holds the title of best in my book for this style. Assertive hops, and nice complexity with some interesting citrus and fruit tones in the hops. The malt is also present, but there is not much complexity to the malt. Strong and bitter, and yet very refreshing and clear, cold tasting. Not too heavy, and not at all sweet. A very good beer.
