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.

Pours amber with a frothy, light tan head. Aroma of pine, caramel, citrus rind, bubble gum. Taste is fairly malty up front with a lot of caramel, nicely balancing out a firm, clean hop finish. This is one of the best Canadian IPAs Iíve had!

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.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2009 Pour is penny color with a small white head . Nose is citrus. Flavour is lots of hops and some cirtus fruity notes. Bitter ending but not over the top. Very enjoyable

A: Poured with quite a large, frothy white head. Not only was that surprising, but the head had great lasting power, and left behind nice, sticky lacing. Body is clear and sparkling, and a lovely dark-orange color. S: Aroma is quite impressive as well... average hops, with hints of lemon, lime, and pine. T: Moderately bitter and lightly acidic, the hops hit you at the end and stay with you for a bit. Not crazy bitter, but definitely enough so you know itís there. Quite good. D: Wow, very impressive. Propeller has a real winner here; Iíll definitely buy this on a fairly regular basis to always have some on hand.

This pours a dark golden color with a small soapy white head, it also a few small spots of lacing. On the nose I am getting a little citrus notes and a little carmel In the flavor category, I can say it is some what off for an IPA. It has some big malt upfront. I am picking up some carmel, toffee notes. It has some grapefruit and hints of pine. I also get some warmth from the alcohol. It finishes with a long lingering bitterness and a burning sensation. I had been hearing such positive things from these guys. I felt it was a let down. I felt the longer I drank this the less I wanted it.

It is a decent good beer but just didnít have that extra bit of taste I get from other IPAís. Little bit of a disappointment.

Thanks again to OKBeer! Copper color, nice white head, but very short retention (may be a little warm, so I wont deal with severely) Intense hop aroma, alcohol laces on the glass. Taste is fade for the first second, then it feels medium malty and ends with a very nice hop finish.

From bottle. Pours a dark golden colour with an excellent head atop. Potent pine aroma, Appleís and a touch of lemon too. Prominent hoppy flavor as youíd expect, not too sweet though more of a malty/caramel flavor. Lingering aftertaste and not excessively carbonated tick my box.

GiBrew (171) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 5, 2005
650 mls bottle. Pours orange almost like ginger ale with a frothy off-white head, leaving lots of lacing behind. Aroma is quite pleasant: Citrus fruits with notes of pine. Citrus fruits, caramel and malt flavours with a lingering bitter finish. Very refreshing.

Bomber into a tumbler. Pours a clear golden colour with a light fluffy head and some lacing. Light grassy aroma, not too overpowering. Good hoppiness with sweet malts and some dry bitterness. Light and crisp.
