Never heard of it, but a little research makes it sound like it would be good for aroma. (spicy, highly fragrant leaves)

because of oils present in its roots is sometimes used to companion plant around small vegetable crops susceptible to subterranean pests.
I could see planting some just for that reason!

There might be some head retention problems due to the oil content, but I think that the spicy citrusy flavors would be perfect for a PA. I think a couple ounces at the end of the boil would be good.
