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.

From bottle. Pours a dark golden colour with an excellent head atop. Potent pine aroma, Apple’s and a touch of lemon too. Prominent hoppy flavor as you’d expect, not too sweet though more of a malty/caramel flavor. Lingering aftertaste and not excessively carbonated tick my box.

Aroma of sour fruit and malt. Pours a caramel color with short lasting white well laced head. Taste of fruit and malt with a dry medium bodied feel and a chalky slight bitter finish.

Frank (3224) - 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.

Bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting off white head. Aromas of bread, butterscotch, vanilla and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, vanilla, light butterscotch and light citrus with a smooth finish.

The beer pours a translucent metallic gold with a slow forming snow white head. The aroma is citrus, caramel, and earthy notes. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is light grapefruit, some caramel, some grains, and a decent bitter finish. Quite good.

On tap - dark gold with a medium head and lacing. Nice dry hop profile. Decent brewski!

BrewGoblin (532) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Really digging this IPA and it’s big pine and resin blast, both in the nose and the tongue-o. It’s a curiously light orangey-yellow with a thin ivory noggin. I really enjoy the bold flavour of this ol’ gal and could happily have a light sesh on her. A nice chewy and lightly greasy mouthfeel make this a wonderful chomper of an IPA.

MunBro (676) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 14, 2014
This was a pretty good IPA. Fresh tasting hops, biscuity malt profile, and a nice balance between the two.
