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.

great sticky lacing, and fluffy white head. Aroma of resinous, piney, citric hops, and a little malt. Pretty one sided here. hints of orange, and the flavor is quite a bit more balanced, the malt makes a distinct appearance. the finish is very bitter, and really clings to the back of my throat. A nice IPA.

On Tap. A solid starter IPA but pales in comparison to the heavy hitters in the field. Maybe Iím just spoiled.

pintbypint (2379) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 6, 2010
341ml brown bottle. Golden with a bit of haze. Small but creamy and lasting white cap that leaves just a touch of lacing. Aroma has sweet orange, caramel and a touch of sharper citrus. Caramel malt background, orange/citrusy middle. Finishes with grapefruit, moderate bitterness hangs around. Aftertaste is a bit grassy and grapefruity. Medium body with average carbonation. Decent, rounded IPA.

A solid IPA. Piney and citrusy aroma. Slight hops aroma as well. Dark amber gold colour with finger of white head. Taste is sweet citrus and pine. Little bit of hops. Very nice and very drinkable.

manuchampions (1227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2009
12oz bottle from Firefly. Aroma is slightly piney with a resonant caramel malt hit. On pouring it is a golden honey with thin head. Taste is grassy hops with a slight citrus hit. Slightly nutty malt soon takes over with a small hop sting lingering. Sadly itís paired with a metallic aftertaste that isnít welcome. Decent effort but not great.

VertBaconStrips (2022) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 25, 2009
Poured out a clear, orangy gold, small white head fading to a skim and some random lacing. The aroma is weak but pleasant with peach and a bit more citrus, caramel, a touch of workout clothes, orange that is very very weak orange and almost a dry grass. The taste is weak and missing defined flavours, however it still is an IPA and that is fine, soft bitterness that actually covers the other flavours, weak pine. There is a decent bitterness and a touch of malt helps it out but it is still plain. Another miss by Propeller.

Berley31 (230) - New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 2, 2009
A: Poured with quite a large, frothy white head. Not only was that surprising, but the head had great lasting power, and left behind nice, sticky lacing. Body is clear and sparkling, and a lovely dark-orange color. S: Aroma is quite impressive as well... average hops, with hints of lemon, lime, and pine. T: Moderately bitter and lightly acidic, the hops hit you at the end and stay with you for a bit. Not crazy bitter, but definitely enough so you know itís there. Quite good. D: Wow, very impressive. Propeller has a real winner here; Iíll definitely buy this on a fairly regular basis to always have some on hand.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2009 Pour is penny color with a small white head . Nose is citrus. Flavour is lots of hops and some cirtus fruity notes. Bitter ending but not over the top. Very enjoyable

Nice Rich Golden Color, pours a good thick head that is slow to dissipate. predominant malty flavor with a pronounced floral bitterness that comes through in the finish. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience.
