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!

Not very impressive. Can’t quite pinpoint what was wrong with it, just not very well balanced, somewhat weak flavor and not strong on the palate either.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Pours with an amber-brown body topped by a thin head with some lacing. It’s slightly sweet with a strong bitter, hoppy finish and a vary slight rotten fruit note. Medium bodied, dry and warming.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - APR 28, 2007
Pours a copper/iced tea looking color. Head is egg-shell and a little thin, but still manages to leave great lacing. Aroma is funky, vegetable hops, basil and a starchy, boiled noodles smell. Taste is pointed hops, pine, basil, pencil shavings, with a little sweet caramel for malt. Bitter aftertaste. Really a hop centric beer, unbalanced. Bought this 12 oz bottle from World Market in Vienna, VA.

Not for me. Orange brown white off white head. Would have called it burnt orange if I liked it more. Aroma of grapefruit and lemon. First impression of the taste was that I was drinking a lemon scented cleanser. I like most of bbc, just not this. It looks and smells nice. Does that count?

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.

livelaughlovep (108) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2009
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

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2009
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.
