Bitter (Store Bought) Apples

I bought some Pink Lady apples that were nice looking and blemish free. Some tasted delicious as they should while others had the sweetness but were bitter tasting. In the latter case the flesh had an evenly brownish tinge. Otherwise nothing else seemed unusual. What is the cause of the bitterness? Is there a way to distinguish between the sweet and the bitter from only outward appearance?
