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.

Growler provided by Olivier_MTL and shared with him, MartinT and tiggmtl. Almost no head lies atop the clear still copper body....the nose is faintly citric-hoppy but mostly juicy apple-caramel sweetness....clean, sweet/bitter balance in the mouth, touches of honey and plenty of spicy hops throughout, a bit of vanilla for fun....moderate carbonation, quite pleasant.

Butterscotch is noteworthy in the mildly spicy aroma along with floral and citrus hops. Clear copper-orange coloured body is topped by a fine bubbled off white cover of head that recedes to a partial cover with minor sudsy lace. Thick, chewy caramel malt flavour and floral hops with fair bitterness. Definitely more of a British take on the IPA than American. Very drinkable medium body with soft textured bubbles and moderate carbonation. Bottle (Production Date Mar-06, trade, Mar-06) sampled with beerbuzzmontreal, Lubiere, MartinT and Rastacouere. Thanks, Jerc! *

Tap @ Henry’s House & 650ml bottle from Bishops Cellar. Muddy light brown, good head. Like hop aroma. Resin boiled sweet flavour. Bitter hoppy aftertaste. Reasonable IPA. Bottle better than tap.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2008
Poured a clear deep golden color with a small white head. Sweet malt aroma with some floral ans sugary caramel notes. A little on the earthy side as well. The flavor was malty but short. The finish was semi-dry with a long bitterness from the middle to the finish.

chinchill (4263) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2016
On tap in Lunenburg. Appearance: clear, amber with excellent clarity and a very fine, durable head. Lots of lacing. Hoppy aroma with sweet malts. Flavor: Hops dominate; bready malt base. Earthy and faintly herbal. Medium bitterness for style. Mouthfeel: near medium carbonation and body. Overall: OK; not my favorite hop mix.

Bouteille de 341ml, Dakujem Patrick. Bière dorée avec une mousse blanche (off-white). Le nez est malté, sucré, il donne l’impression d’une bière ronde, le houblon est aussi bien présent. La bouche est bien charpentée, le malt supporte bien les houblons. L’amertume en fin de bouche est bien agréable. Américain comme IPA.

robinvboyer (4138) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2010
great sticky lacing, and fluffy white head. Aroma of resinous, piney, citric hops, and a little malt. Pretty one sided here. hints of orange, and the flavor is quite a bit more balanced, the malt makes a distinct appearance. the finish is very bitter, and really clings to the back of my throat. A nice IPA.

This is a decent hoppy beer. It pours clear golden and clear with a big foamy head. Nose is citrus zest, mango and some woody pine. Some sweetness brings out the pine in a pleasant way. This is very bitter which does a great deal to bake the full bodied sugary sweetness. It finishes with a bit of tropical fruit and piney, resinous bitterness. Not bad.

Bottle from the brewery shop. Pours a crystal clear deep straw color with a huge tightly bubbled white head that leaves a huge a mount of stickies on the glass. Carmel, earth, and pine in the aroma. The flavor is caramel and earth again with a touch of resin and a hint of alcohol. Sweet maltiness with just a touch of hop flavor and bitterness. Medium body and a moderate level of carbonation. English style maybe, but really tame for an ipa, or too much crystal malt to let the hops shine through. I could drink this there’s nothing wrong with it but it has a 90’s old school feel to it.
