3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2008 From bottle. Rich fruity aroma, slight hoppy feel. Clear golden appearance with a thin frothy head. Rich fruity flavour, fresh feel. Tangy finish.
I have to say the more I drink this IPA the more I like it. Its not really near my favourite, but its good. More flavoursome than the pale ale for sure.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
9/05/2007: Propeller IPA is golden in color with a slight orange tnge to it. There is a frothly off-white head that leaves some thin lacing. A toffee maltiness mostly comes through in the aroma. There is a little sweet candy quality that is in the background. The flavor is malty and sweet light candy with citrusy tangerine hops. The bitterness is mild to moderate. The beer has a medium body and is quite flavorful, but not very much bitterness (a bit more for the style would have been welcomed). Overall it is still a solid, sessionable IPA.
650 ml bottle (6.5% alc./vol. / Production date: Month=May, Week=1) from porterhose via trade. Thanks Kevin! Shared with Tmoney99 at the Dilly Deli. Rating #49 for this beer...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear copper-orange with a small head of soap suds.
Smells of malty bread, grain, and big lemon hops.
Mouthfeel is crisp and has just the right amount of carbonation.
Taste is a bit molasses, some honey, grapefruit, unsweetened cocoa powder, and a good-sized hoppy bitter finish (not a hop-bomb, but good for an IPA as far as I’m concerned). The aftertaste is metallic, bitter, and lemon tang.
A good IPA for light sessions. I was very impressed with it. I would most definitely pick this up again. Too bad I bought it in Nova Scotia... I can’t get it at home.
