3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

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

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
It is a decent good beer but just didn’t have that extra bit of taste I get from other IPA’s. Little bit of a disappointment.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 it’s there. Quite good.
D: Wow, very impressive. Propeller has a real winner here; I’ll definitely buy this on a fairly regular basis to always have some on hand.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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: DEC 10, 2005 [Bottle 650ml, 15C, 1 month old]
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, Apple’s and a touch of lemon too. Prominent hoppy flavor as you’d expect, not too sweet though more of a malty/caramel flavor. Lingering aftertaste and not excessively carbonated tick my box.
