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.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2011 (341 ml) Le liquide a une robe cuivrée. La tête mousseuse est petite et démontre une certaine ténacité. Une dentelle éparse décore le verre. Le nez présente des parfums de caramel avec des houblons qui transpirent les oranges. Les saveurs sont douces, légèrement touchées par le boisé et le côté fruité des houblons. En bouche, le liquide a une belle tenue avec un corps moyen et une effervescence très honorable. La texture est huileuse et plaisante. La finale est très peu amère, bien portée par le sucré des malts. Très similaire à leur E.P.A.

Miksu (5046) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2007
0.65 l bottle. Copper color with long lasting head. Sweetish, flowery, lemony and fruity aroma with notes of blackcurrant. Malty, bittersweet, honeyish, flowery-fruity and perfumed flavor. Nice soft carbonation. Excellent high quality IPA.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 1, 2007
3/4" head on gold beer. Smells right, spruce. Light body. Nice malty beer with juicy hop flavour. The juiciness reminds me of Scarlet’s Fire without the intensity. Enjoyable ESB, perhaps not an IPA.

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.

chinchill (4338) - 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.

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.

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 (4185) - 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.
