Notes/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!

2.65/5  rDev -27.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours a clear orange color with a white head. Fairly nice lacing on this beer.
Smell is a very undertoned hop smell. Floral hops and citrus aromas dominate with a touch of malt, but none of it too strong.
Taste has a stronger malt flavor than the smell. The hops are too weak. Small floral hops taste at the end.
Mouthfeel is one of the best parts. Nice medium body with a good malty chew to it.
A drinkable pale ale because it is predominantly malt flavored. The lack of hops makes this too weak to be a good pale ale to me. Not really worth trying.

Serving type: on-tap

3.39/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a deep copper. White foam but no lacing. Aroma of hops, being primarily floral but also coming off a bit like a wet dog. In the taste, nice piney hops, with a good amount of bitterness. Medium carbonation and somewhat crisp. Overall this is a decent pale.
