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!
Bottle. Cloudy amber brown, white head. Aroma of floral pine, and a bit of caramel. Taste is very bitter, over the top. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2010

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. DocLock (10653) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2010
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.

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.

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. blipp (9172) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 23, 2011
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. nimbleprop (8297) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 2, 2009
On tap at Friday the Firkenteenth at the Grey Lodge Pub. Pours a translucent copper amber with a frothy white head. Grassy aroma, floral hops, grains. Flavor is a mix of citrus hops and caramel sweetness. Right at the end a sickly vegetal flavor creeps in. Slightly bitter finish. FROTHINGSLOSH (7697) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2009
Sampled on draft at Fat Head’s 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.
