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.

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 youíd want from your ipa. Reminds me of spearhead Moroccan brown -- which is odd -- but there it is.

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.

Frothmeister (633) - 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 arenít. It kind of feels like itís missing its middle.

BrewGoblin (549) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
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.

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.

There is a minimum of 75 characters for your comments. A good rating says something about the appearance, aroma, flavors, body, and finish and your overall experience with the beer.

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.
