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.

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 Keith’s IPA from Halifax it’s a winner.

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.

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.

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

The Propeller brewery always pleases me. This one pours a nice penny color with a very small but lasting head. This brew doesn’t 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.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2013
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 I’ve had!

Poured from bottle. Aroma of citrus. Pours a clear golden colour, with white head. Taste is medium bitter. Medium body, oily texture, bitter finish. Nice IPA.
