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.

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.

Nice golden colour with good head and some lacing. Hoppy, but not overwhelming. Lots of citrus flavours (grapefruit). Finishes smooth. Very drinkable.

coldbrewky (1418) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Bottle via OKbeer. A solid and stable example of an IPA. nose is butterscotch covered hops....yeah I know. A deep amber with a finger thick oily tannish head. Settles with dense fine lacing to a dozen lilly pad carbonation points. Three separate waves of hops hit the tounge from start to finish. Body is medium. a nice one.

The Propeller brewery always pleases me. This one pours a nice penny color with a very small but lasting head. This brew doesnít lace the glass. I think it is a bit too tame. Should have everything as is but up the intensity on it all.

Cirrhosis (1192) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2009
Bright copper body with a small white cap. Citrusy hoppy aroma with toffee and apple. Taste is watered down with a soapy citrus hop flavour. The bitterness is very noticeable but not over the top. Leather starts to appear in the finish, could use more malt character. Good brew to just sit a drink but itís a bellow average IPA and not worth the 20$ a sixer.

beernbourbon (1284) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Thanks to OKBeer for this Canadian gem. Pour is beautiful copper color with minimal white head. Aroma is hops and bubblegum up front with malt, grapefruit hops, and yeast in back. Flavor is hops, malt, oregano, and yeast with a mild chemical background. Finish is crisp and refreshing. Solid stuff.

[1899-20081213] 1pt6floz bottle. Grainy hops aroma has a hint of citrus and wood. Clear, red orange body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head and thick lacing. Heavy grainy hops flavour has some bitter citrus pips. Medium-full body. Nice and drinkable.
