COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not for the faint of heart. True India Pale Ales had to withstand long sea voyages before slaking the thirst of cranky British troops stationed in the heat of India. Bracing, bitter, higher in alcohol. Trademark Propeller quality. A full-bodied ale for full-throttle beer lovers. Drink fresh.

chinchill (4269) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2016
On tap in Lunenburg. Appearance: clear, amber with excellent clarity and a very fine, durable head. Lots of lacing. Hoppy aroma with sweet malts. Flavor: Hops dominate; bready malt base. Earthy and faintly herbal. Medium bitterness for style. Mouthfeel: near medium carbonation and body. Overall: OK; not my favorite hop mix.

Tap @ Henry’s House & 650ml bottle from Bishops Cellar. Muddy light brown, good head. Like hop aroma. Resin boiled sweet flavour. Bitter hoppy aftertaste. Reasonable IPA. Bottle better than tap.

Golden colour and strong citrus and hop aroma. Light head, not to foamy. Stupendous beer on a hot day when in an ice chilled glass.

Frank (4007) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2014
This is a decent hoppy beer. It pours clear golden and clear with a big foamy head. Nose is citrus zest, mango and some woody pine. Some sweetness brings out the pine in a pleasant way. This is very bitter which does a great deal to bake the full bodied sugary sweetness. It finishes with a bit of tropical fruit and piney, resinous bitterness. Not bad.
