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.

shigadeyo (3589) - 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...

johnnnniee (3492) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 5, 2014
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.

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.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2007
Bottled at SBWF. Hazy golden with orange edges. Dryish aroma of grapefruit and grass. Hoppy and bitter flavour of grapefruit, grass and pine-needles. Long bitter finish of grapefruit and salt.

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.

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.

pintbypint (3273) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 6, 2010
341ml brown bottle. Golden with a bit of haze. Small but creamy and lasting white cap that leaves just a touch of lacing. Aroma has sweet orange, caramel and a touch of sharper citrus. Caramel malt background, orange/citrusy middle. Finishes with grapefruit, moderate bitterness hangs around. Aftertaste is a bit grassy and grapefruity. Medium body with average carbonation. Decent, rounded IPA.

650ml bottle, bright golden color, with a frothy white head, sweet floral hop nose, with a mild leafy and grassy accent, with a faint citrus note, a subtle hop spiciness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet pale malt, a mild hop piney character, with a faint juicy hop citrusy accent, with a light honeyish note, leading towards a sweet floral hop peachy fruitiness and a lingering leafy bittering finish.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2005
Very orangey hop aroma, copper, with a small tan head. Flavour is full orange hops, piney as well, nice malt backbone. Medium bodied, well balanced, hops dance on the tongue, fine bitterness. Great! Thank You jerc and OKBeer!
