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.

Frank (4025) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2014
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.

probstblueribbon (3726) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2013
341 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Slightly hazy deep amber with a small off-white head. Aroma: Lots of sticky caramel, some butterscotch, floral and resinous hops, lemony citrus, almost brothy, slightly peppery, a little dusty/musty, a bit fruity, a little too malt-forward for my tastes. Palate: Medium+ body, moderately prickly effervescence. Flav.: Some pine/resin hops, mild citrus zing, still plenty of caramel malt, a touch dank and a bit fruity, less broth/dust than the nose, alright; dry with pretty good bitterness and a fairly nice pine/resin/floral hop finish.

Not perfect for my palate, but pretty good.

shigadeyo (3635) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2007
9/05/2007: Propeller IPA is golden in color with a slight orange tnge to it. There is a frothly off-white head that leaves some thin lacing. A toffee maltiness mostly comes through in the aroma. There is a little sweet candy quality that is in the background. The flavor is malty and sweet light candy with citrusy tangerine hops. The bitterness is mild to moderate. The beer has a medium body and is quite flavorful, but not very much bitterness (a bit more for the style would have been welcomed). Overall it is still a solid, sessionable IPA.

650 ml bottle (6.5% alc./vol. / Production date: Month=May, Week=1) from porterhose via trade. Thanks Kevin! Shared with Tmoney99 at the Dilly Deli. Rating #49 for this beer...

JoeMcPhee with the ill Canadian hook ups. I mean really, I would never get to try all this fine Canuck beer if it was not for him, thank you very much Joe (oh yeah, blame Canada). 22oz bomber pours a dark golden color. Aroma is apple-like hops with some musky-lagered aspects. Taste is a a bit thicker malt biscuit with plenty of light hoppiness.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2006
The pour reveals a slightly cloudy copper color with a thin white head. Decent aroma of resinous and spicy hops with caramel malt. Good flavor of spicy and resinous hops with caramel malt and a bitter finish. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and lively carbonation.

From jerc. The beer pours to a glowing orangish copper body with a nice white head. The aroma is very English. Caramel, butterscotch, English hops. The flavor is caramel, floral English hops. Light butterscotch. The palate was moderate at best. A disappointment.
