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.

Bottle, Very malty for an IPA, it is a little citrusy. I found the first few sips some what bad. But as I drank more I began to enjoy it a far bit. It had a decent bitterness to it. Overall good and easy drinking stuff that I would have again

gramity (1601) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 23, 2011
Clear amber and orangey colour with a one finger head that turns into a sticky ring of lace. The aroma is spicy, piney, and floral but not quite as potent as I have experienced in other American IPAs. The taste is more assertive with some hints of toffee and strong citrus. There is nice bitter finish to each sip. This beer goes down quite smooth. This is one of the more well balanced IPAs I’ve enjoyed.

BuckeyeBoy (5796) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 22, 2011
On tap at Propeller in Halifax. Pours out golden topped with a tall fluffy head. Aroma was of citrus hops, grape fruit juice, light pine, and a good amount of toast. Taste was more of the grapefruit citrus hops, some lemon zest and a good malt backbone. Not a over the top IPA just a casual drinker.

HopBurp (74) - Michigan, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Pint off tap from hotel bar in Truro NS. Aroma was nice and flavor good at first. As I drank the pint it became less desirable though. The hops were there , just in a intrusive not balanced sort of way. Still a drinkable beer though, just not one I would get get again.

good stuff from one of the craft breweries from the province. However, i seem to remember this one having more bite and a more complex mouthfeel but hey, it a solid IPA. hints of pine cones, some grassy bitterness and good mix of malts. This use to be one of my everyday IPA’s till dieu du ciel came along.

Thanks to my father for sharing this beer. Bottled the second week of September 2010. The beer pours a golden orange color with a white head. The aroma is very strong. The first whiff is very similar to juicy fruit gum, but I also get some flowers and bready malt notes. The flavor is very fruity. I get some bubble gum, perfume, flowers and a little bit of pine. Low to medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The beer is very good, but it got a little hard to drink near the end.

Fell in love with this one during a week-long Nova Scotia vacation. Found it nearly everywhere we went. Pine, citrus, sticky mouthfeel, followed by a long bitter finish. Tasted to me a lot like a West Coast style IPA. Fought the urge to bring a case home, something I now regret.

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.
