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.

BillKismet (3515) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Crystal clear amber color topped by a nice frothy head that is punctured by hop pocks. Fruity and punchy hop nose. Flowery hop flavor with rose water notes that veer into baby powder on the finish. Bitter, baby powder finish.

Cybercat (4078) - Georgia, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Pours clear Amber with a nice buff head that leaves generous lacing. Aroma is not strong, but crisp and malty. Flavor is considerably bolder, malty with hoppy and subtle fruity notes, quite enjoyable. Mouthfeel has average body and fizz, but finish is delightfully hoppy and not at all bitter. Worth a fair shake!

Straw color to amber. Good citrus hop aroma. Mild malts. Breads. Lean. But overall pretty good.

willisread (922) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 17, 2015
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Nice aromas of floral hops, citrus and resin with some malt in there as well. Fairly well-balanced between caramel malt and bitter hops on the palate. Biscuity malt flavors appear is it comes to room temperature. Nice bitter finish.

shadey (1996) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 27, 2015
12oz bottle. It took more than 20 minutes, one foam-over, and four different attempts to pour this beer. The head never diminished, it just got chewed. Aroma is all hop resin and just enough malt sweetness to pull it together. The flavor is cloying hop resin. Absolutely no balance. Nothing I would drink again.

Draft sampler pours Amber with a off white head. Aroma of malts, citrus and pine. Taste is malts and grapefruit.

tectactoe (3120) - 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 (4683) - 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 (16394) - 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.
