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!

12 oz bottle. Pours copper with a thin fizzy white head. Smells very floral and piney. Taste is very harsh, bitter, and overly carbonated. The malt flavor is bad and watery, and the hops were all smell. When i first opened the bottle, the smell was fantastic. I couldnt wait to try it. It went downhill from there. I can only drink this one. Im prbably going to give the rest away.

Highly unimpressive. Very bland flavor, weak malt/hops presence that dumbs it down to a watery, "Beer" flavor. Like Heineken or something. Honestly one of the worse beers I’ve drank...

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

Ugh. strong, too hoppy IPA. As unpleasent as the loud color scheme on the label. Not the best offering of the BBC

Bottle. Pours a odd and cloudy orange/brown with little head. Aromas of yucky grapefruit and yuck. Flavor seems to be based around a grapefruit hops presence, but just plain fails. This has no carbonation on the palate, hops are there, but they’re awfully done in the landfill of mess that is this beer.

Nice amber color with creamy head. Thin, bitter, and astringent with notes of rotten food in the aroma. Very dry with little maltiness or sweetness. Bought in 12 oz. bottles. Not on my regular menu.

Clear orangey brown color. Sparkles nicely. tea froth head. Olfactory hoppy pine. Hoppy bitter initial impression and obnoxious at times. Borders on IPA territory. Bitter back throat linger gets more intense as session continues. Oily at times. Rude awakening, you forget this stuff quickly after a bottle, will not purchase again. Too much for this lager lover.

thank you Mrbunn for this goodness. Smells like cascades...pours dirty orange with no head. Wow. this tastes like absolute nasty ass swill. Some tobacco, swill, filth, dirt, and some tea. Like an orangutans ass. Epic Fail.

Tonight we had a few beers and some food at BBC, beer was bland lacking flavour, cardboard, moth balls, and malty . Food was like frozen Mrs. Paul's fish. Bar and restaurant were not clean, from the front windows to the tables. Beer is much better in bottles, stay away from BBC they have hit rock bottom. their Pale Ale in bottles is pretty good otherwise their beer is a drain pour , its no wonder so many people take the trip to New Albany Indiana for good beer, drain pour the BBC and go to Richos for some good beer (3.8 rating for bottled BBC APA)the one from the tap is just plain disgusting !
