22 oz bomber from Jonathan Ron Brielle. Poured far far darker then I was expecting. A deep dark brown body with lots of clinging bubbles and a smaller foamy of white head adorn this cola looking beer. Aroma is way to chcolatey for an IPA, none the less a wet hop IPA. Aroma of chocolate and lemon soap, earth, toast and chocolate pudding. Medium bodied with a chalky feel and a slight olingering bitter finish with medium carbonation. Flavor of lemon zest soap combined with chocolate and toast, a touch of marshmellow. If this was supposed to be a black IPA it’s a fair attempt but if this is a fresh hop IPA it’s way to chocolatey. dyetube (1378) - Hurst, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2010
This beer pours. Deep amber with a thin white. The aromas are citrus, grass. The mouthfeel is dry and bitter. Nor bad! Cheers! keepersj12 (3117) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Pretty decent from the ghetto. Used to be a ghetto anyway. Now it’s 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 I’ve had from this brewer by far. Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2010
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... zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2010
Bottle. Pours amber/copper, with a white head. Aroma is wet, resiny hops, caramel, and malt. Flavor is hops, grass, and malt. Body is on the light side. Capa (3303) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - 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 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.
