Surprisingly dark brown opaque beer. Little pale tan head. Light crispy palate. Good malt base, even a touch of roasted malt. Piney bitterish hops on top. Trace of hop fruit. Dry finish. Toasted malt again in the aftertaste. Interesting beer. Just not a very pale India Pale Ale!

hopdog (9940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2009
On tap. Poured a deeper amberish/orange color with medium sized of white head. Aromas of floral hops, citurs, and some toastiness. Tastes of floral hops, tea, citrus, and some lighter caramel. More of a balanced and English IPA vs a hop bomb.

651mL. Pour is a lightly hazed tea amber with a medium, yellowish, creme head. Spotty lace. Cedar and sharp lemon, citrus, melon nose. Taste is wildly bitter, very nutty with loads of dark chocolate and nut skins/shells. Softer mouthfeel. Quenching and bitter with no cheesy hops at least. Not bad.

I have liked all of PBC’s 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.

phaleslu (7600) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2011
22 oz. bottle that was a trade bonus from zathrus13- thanks again, Jeff! Pours a cloudy brown/orange/amber mishmash of a color with a small eggshell white head. Aroma of earthy, leafy, wet hops, dark caramel malt, wood, crackers, and faint rye. Flavor of earthy, leafy hops, husky grains, herbal and vegetal notes, caramel malts, and peanuts. Light-medium bodied, with an earthy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This is a pretty cool, interesting, different take on an IPA that went over very well with everyone who tried it.

Bottle. Pours deep amber with an off white head. Floral hoppy aroma with toasty sweet malty notes. The flavor has floral hops, sweet malts, toasty notes, a light nuttiness, and a medium bitter finish. Pretty good.

In short: An earthy fresh-hop IPA. Nice.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed a few weeks after purchase but probably a few months old
The look: Cloudy dark copper body topped by a large beige head with good retention
In long: Strong hoppy nose the way only a fresh-hop beer can be, plenty of hops with a signature that is at times very leafy, earthy, spicy, coniferous but also just overall woody, almost perfumed. Taste proposes a toasted grainy malts, lots of earth, forest floor, graham cookies, some caramel, some rusty notes, tree bark, leafy hops, coniferous hops. Bitterness level is medium. I don’t know how to word it or explain it but I find most fresh-hop IPAs feel a bit dirty, and this ones takes it to another level. This was rather tasty and nourishing. Felt like I was drinking a bitter dirty park bench. Not bad at all. But who the hell decided to put Philadelphia in such a bad neighbourhood.
