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.

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.

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.

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.

UXO (1000) - 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.

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.

Tessic (983) - 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

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

MunBro (890) - 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.

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.

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