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.

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.

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

Tessic (906) - 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 (809) - 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

vadie (808) - 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.

Tasted in Toronto. Obtained at Premier in Halifax. 650ml bomber. Tasted in 500ml dimple mug. Very clear, medium fluffy white head. Typical fluffy soapy aroma, relatively light constitution, mellow and very nice.

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

Freaky_tiki (644) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2013
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.

Frothmeister (587) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
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.

MunBro (541) - 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.
