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.

neuromatt (1154) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2013
11.5 oz bottle from the LCBO, served in a snifter. Pours clear amber with a moderate tan head that remains and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has notes of pine and toasty malts along with resin and citrus. The flavour is moderately bitter throughout with notes from the nose along with subtle caramel toasty malt sweetness. The finish is moderate in length with a mild grassy hoppy bitterness. On the palate it is light-medium in body with a milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall this is a decent piney, resinous IPA in the English style. Subtle and tasty, very well brewed. 2013-03-11

JesseM (1151) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2012
650mL bottle, shared by a friend who was just out east. Pours a nice, somewhat deep copper with a large beige head. The aroma throws some decent hops in your face, but also a lot of malty characters. Flavour is extremely well balanced, sharp and dry from the hops but backed up very well by the malt body. Caramalt, toffee, fruity esters, citrus, with a bit of a dry finish. Body is medium and satisfying. I love well-balanced IPA’s. This is what Keith’s is supposed to be like.

HeistAlmighty (1127) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 15, 2011
341ml bottle. The Propeller hops dominate this beer from start to finish. When you can taste anything else its pine and maybe a little citrus. Dry finish.

Bendrixian (1106) - Canadiana, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 10, 2010
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.

kevinsenn (1075) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle from LCBO. Hazy gold. Aroma: peach and pine. Taste: pine, fruits, medium-bitter finish. An relatively easy-drinking IPA, nothing wrong with it.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 25, 2011
Single bottle purchased from Zyn Liqour in Calgary, AB on 06/24/2011. Colour: Slightly dark yellow with low head. Nose: dry hops, dijon mustard, ancient deadfall wood, brisk citurs (grapefruit?). Taste: Light sweet, medium bitter, light sour. Strict and to the point. No caramel or toffee undertones to lighten up the bite of the hops - this one is pure pine pleasure. Some dark cocoa notes muttle about. Finish is bitter and hop dominant. Completion of this beer makes you feel like a job well done.

andrewturba (969) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
Pours a clear amber colour with small white head quickly dissolving to a thin white ring which leaves some sticky lace up the glass periodically. Aroma consists of citrus, pine, pale malt, sweet apple. Flavours are citrus, grapefruit, resin, majorority of mouth feel is just bitterness without much anything else.

MrFecesious (959) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 22, 2014
Had in bottle before, but this time a pint at hart & thistle. Clear light amber. Light caramel and citrus nose. Similar in taste. Good, but not as good as I remember.

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

Tessic (840) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2012
This IPA poured a light amber colour with a quick living, off white head. to the nose there are scents of citrus, dough and white bread. First sip was very hoppy with flavours of grassy hops and a little citrus. Very hoppy IPA
