The beer pours out in a slightly hazy and bright orange yellow color with a large fluffy head.

The aroma has a large amount of hops, floral and tropical hops, orange rind and citrus, a good amount of crackery malt.

The flavor follows with an orange peel, tropical fruits, and then onto floral hops. There's some crackery malt to keep the beer going and offer some substantive body. A clean and light beer however.

A well made IPA.

Delicious, crisp and aromatic IPA. Pours a brilliant yellow, light in body. Aroma and flavor are primarily floral and fruity hops with a big emphasis on orange rind. Malt character just peeks through, but quite dry and definitely hop focused. The character is a bit different than that of most IPAs -- the now-dominant west coast and new world character--and it is a nice change of pace.

A trip to PB, love this place.

A: Light yellow, hazy, very nice

S: Nothing! Where are the hops?

T: Again, I'm struggling to taste what's "IPA" about this brew. Pleasing malt and if I did for it I get a touch of citrus and some grassy flavor from the hopping but very subtle

M: About right

O: The one disappointment I had at PB.

Appearance: Presents with a hazy amber color; an inch or two of foam leave sheets of lacing behind

Smell: The aroma was somewhat herbal with pint, mint and lime tones

Taste: Bready malt flavors, up front, with the pine, mint and lime arriving in the middle; bitterness built in the profile, but an unusual band-aid flavor also arrived, taking the beer in an odd direction; the finish was bitter with some band-aid funkiness

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: The malt and hops used here are an unusual combination and I really wanted to like this beer; ultimately, I couldn't get around the off flavors, however
