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.

Really digging this IPA and itís big pine and resin blast, both in the nose and the tongue-o. Itís a curiously light orangey-yellow with a thin ivory noggin. I really enjoy the bold flavour of this olí gal and could happily have a light sesh on her. A nice chewy and lightly greasy mouthfeel make this a wonderful chomper of an IPA.

(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.

cask. Light golden with slight cloudiness. Very fresh aromas and flavours of pine hops and biscuit malts. Nice IPA.

chronictonic (473) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2007
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 Keithís IPA from Halifax itís a winner.

albert007 (415) - Penobsquis, New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 6, 2005
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.

Not a bad IPA, but I will usually go for Garrison, when Iím in Halifax. She is pretty juicy in the citrus and resin department. More hops than malt, so it isnít as balanced as i would like, but still really good. Has a strong face puckering bitter after taste, which I enjoy sometimes.

The Propeller brewery always pleases me. This one pours a nice penny color with a very small but lasting head. This brew doesnít lace the glass. I think it is a bit too tame. Should have everything as is but up the intensity on it all.

tagz (337) - Alabama, USA - AUG 1, 2007
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.
