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.

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.

Luvystypotables (1057) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2015
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.

vadie (1017) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
Couleur jaune brillant avec une mousse moyenne blanche. L?arôme d?agrumes. Très fraîche en bouche, avec un goût d’agrumes et un peu de malt.

Powertrip (1000) - 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.

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

Tessic (932) - 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

gilvanblight (819) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2013
Weak grassy scent. Light golden pour with a bubbly head. Very easy to drink. Doesn’t have that IPA bite. Neutral on this one. I’m guessing most pale ale fans won’t like this one much

UXO (809) - CANADA - JUN 20, 2014
(Growler) Pours a slightly hazy medium copper with a short-lived two finger head diminishing to a thin skim and heavy lacing. Nose is floral and herbal hops, biscuity malt, tropical fruit. Taste is sweet malt and mild floral hops. Medium bodied and chewy, with moderate carbonation and a bitter finish. This is a decently balanced brew, with good hop presence and a solid malt backbone. Nothing stellar, but a solid brew.

MunBro (808) - 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.

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