3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle. Pours a clear amber, with an off-white head. The aromas are very faint, with very little hop presence on the nose, but for some reason big notes of apple juice, with some caramel. Starts slightly sweet, with some toffee, apple notes, and a decent whack of hops. Something about this beer seems slightly muted, like the flavours should be bigger, but aren’t. It kind of feels like it’s missing its middle.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Medium to dark gold in color. Mild aroma with only hints of dry hopping. Flavor was sweet and a bit weird - not sure what hops they use in this beer, but it was not a very good IPA compare to others out there. However, compared to Alexander Keith’s IPA from Halifax it’s a winner.

Well if this isnt all burnt sugar & bubblegum taste. Hops are bright -- & make lager boys blush from what I can see down the left side of the bar -- but without the punch that you’d want from your ipa. Reminds me of spearhead Moroccan brown -- which is odd -- but there it is.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Best IPA in the Maritimes. Copper color with small creamy off-white head with some lace as well. Aroma is fresh, bright citrusy hops. Sweet white cake & malty taste followed by a wonderfully bitter grapefruit hop aftertaste. Very well done & much better than I expected.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The Propeller brewery always pleases me. This one pours a nice penny color with a very small but lasting head. This brew doesn’t lace the glass. I think it is a bit too tame. Should have everything as is but up the intensity on it all.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle. rich orange, gold with foamy white head (some lacing). aroma of oats and grass. flavor is malt, bitter hop, slight citrus tart, some pine. bitter is dominant but is well balanced and leaves room for subtle grass and citrus notes to come through. this is a great ipa. stands more on the dry, bitter hop than the floral and it works well. tight carb - nice palate. its nice to taste an ipa with a solid malt backbone and not overwhelmingly floral. the 6.5 seals the deal. solid beer for sure.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber with a frothy, light tan head. Aroma of pine, caramel, citrus rind, bubble gum. Taste is fairly malty up front with a lot of caramel, nicely balancing out a firm, clean hop finish. This is one of the best Canadian IPAs I’ve had!
