Pretty decent from the ghetto. Used to be a ghetto anyway. Now itís the new place to be seen. Pours a dark clear amber with a creamy off white head that laces nicely. The aroma is the best part of this beer. Very piney and citrusy with a nice malt backbone. Flavor comes off quite bitter and refreshing with a peppery feel on the throat. Nice lingering after taste. The best Iíve had from this brewer by far.

The aroma is nice - sweet, syrupy, and a bit hoppy. The IPA poursdark amberwith a red dark maroon hue. It is malty and hoppy balanced well in flavor with the resiny malts up front and the hops lingering nicely on the tongue.

Pours a dark ruby with a big head nice lacing... Pungent aroma, quite a bit roasty, with big notes of citrusy hops... Flavor is very roasty, with lots of fruity hops especially in the finish... Dry medium bodied, roast lingers nicely, deftly balanced, easily the best philadelphia brewing beer ive had, really really good, not nearly as hoppy as i expected...

Capa (2030) - Manama, BAHRAIN - OCT 13, 2010
Firkin at Standard Tap. Dark with a mid-sized head. Aroma has lightly roasted malt, earthy hops, some caramel, grass, nutty, too. Flavor is along the same lines, with the toasty malts sitting right next to the hops. Has a mildly dry, bitter finish. Low carbonation due to the serving style. A very nice beer.

I have liked all of PBCís offerings, and this one is no different. Pours burnt siennaw 2f frothy clingy ow head. Nose is resiny hops, big caramel malt, brown sugar, some fruit. Tastes rich, earthy, with a solid c malt bill, resiny wet hops, and black pepper notes. Palate is rich, complex, and smooth. This one is great.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2009
On tap at Piperís Pub. Grassy fresh hoppy nose. Light citrus and pine bitter. Mild malt notes, bit of canvas, paper, caramel. Dark brown amber clear with foamy-creamy off-white lacing head. Medium-light watery body with heavy carbonation. Mild carbonic burn. Big hops bite to this one. Very dry with muted malt notes. Nutty and big on hop bitterness from start to finish. Bitter, piney, chalky dry bitter finish and after. Really bitter.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4943) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2009
Sampled on draft at Fat Headís in Pittsburgh PA this beer poured a red-caramel color with a large beige head. The aroma was sweet fruity hops without anything else going on. The flavor was dryish, bitter and had moderate floral and vaguely fruity hops. No malt backbone to speak of. Medium length dry and hoppy finish. Medium body. A bit disappointing.
