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!

Very hoppy aroma!! Very inviting...dark amber/brown body with a small head. Mostly bitter taste. I sense the watered down taste here...I think it because there is a lack of a strong nose flavor, so you get a strong carbonated water feel on the nose. The hop on this beer is above average, and the watey taste is a statement in itself.

tectactoe (2338) - Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2014 Tap @ Bluegrass: Burnt amber body with a somewhat lazy, slightly soapy white collar buffeted on top. White pepper covered grapefruit peels & a big citrus rind essence, smells quite bitter & floral. Very similar to the Atta Boy IPA, actually. Mild toasted cracker malt. Zesty bitterness all across the palate. More bitter grapefruit pith, more citrus peel, more herbal bitterness. Slightly floral & botanical finish with a hint of toasted malt.

wlajwl (4062) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Aroma is citrus, fruit and bitter/ESB-like. The flavor is citrus, fruit, biscuit/English malts, a small hint of hop resin and a very dry/tart/tangy finish. Similar to Honkers Ale, never a bad thing about that.

Travlr (13428) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle. Very dark amber color, tan head. Aroma of floral pine, caramel biscuit. And someone wrote "morning breath" in my notebook, but it’s not my handwriting, so I won’t count it in the score. Taste is very bitter caramel.

Never have been a big fan of BBC beer. Probably should be since I live here but in general I prefer other breweries.

theisti (3297) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - APR 25, 2014
Nonic pint draft at the Bluegrass tap room on East Main Street in Louisville, Kentucky. The pour is a clear golden copper with a one inch well formed white head. The aroma is a dusty floral with a bit of cracker malt. The taste is cracker malt forward followed by the dry floral bitter hops. A bit of dirt shows in the taste as it warms. The palate is medium to light bodied with soft carbonation and the dry softly bitter finish. Tasty enough Pale Ale.

JStax (3244) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 23, 2014
Draft pour at the source. Pours a clear copper with a white head of foam. Grassy, herbs, lemon zest, and green tea are in the aroma. Bitter tea like taste. Medium body and medium carbonation.

bartlebier (1981) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 18, 2014
(backlog recollected in abstinence) Tap tasting flight, @source downtown pub 09/2012. Middling star of the tasting flight: an easy-drinking, mellow when thirsty APA with a slow attack and fast finish, delivering pleasant floral and minor citric notes on a slightly soggy cereal palate. Thank god for tasting shorthand, as this would have evaporated into oblivion along with many other US brewpub 2-week concoctions (thin palates, most of them).

jandd1983 (2761) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 6, 2014
It poured a hazy dark golden color with a beige head. The aroma was of pine and citrus hops with mild sweet caramel maltiness. The taste was of malts and a decent amount of hops. Good stuff.

2/28/14. On tap at the brewpub and enjoyed again later from a 12oz bottle. Amber copper pour with a small khaki head. Very muted aroma, floral hops, fading fast, caramel, a touch of metal. Meh flavor as well, malty, caramel, floral hops. Meh.
