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.

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2005
Dougís place, 12/05. I hear that this one is 25% alcohol and 7,000 IBUs. Rich copper, slightly tan head. Lemon, citrus hops. Kind of alcohol grapefruit. Nicely done grapefruit, toasty malt. Orange rind. Lingering finish. Nice.

Ontbeertaster (2335) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2011
Bottle, Very malty for an IPA, it is a little citrusy. I found the first few sips some what bad. But as I drank more I began to enjoy it a far bit. It had a decent bitterness to it. Overall good and easy drinking stuff that I would have again

cfrancis (2324) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2013
Pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is grapefruit, apricot and some citrus with the malt sweetness. Taste is a blast of grapefruit, tart citrus and apricot hop bitterness with small malt sweets. Interesting IPA. First one Iíve had that really leans towards the citrus and tartness

johnnnniee (2293) - 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 thereís nothing wrong with it but it has a 90ís old school feel to it.

glennmastrange (2241) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2008
Bottle. Moderate notes of straw and nutty for the malts, moderate hop notes of perfume, pine and a little orange, light leather and soap for the yeast, and white wine and cherry in the background. Head is small, white and creamy with good lacing and is moslty diminishing. Color is clear amber. Flavor is lightly sweet and moderately acidic to start, and finishes moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, oily and has a soft, almost flat carbonation. A good IPAwith some non-IPA characteristics. I remember this beer beer being better on draught, so Iíll have to re-rate it next time Iím at the local pub.

radiomgb (2236) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2007
Orange-copper in colour, quickly dissipating off-white coloured head, no lacing. The aroma is of floral hops, light grapefruit, some caramel sweetness. The flavour is of light lemon and grapefruit, peppery, floral, moderate sweetness, a bit on the chemically side, grassy. Moderatly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes peppery, bitter and lingering. This isnít all that bad, the only downfall is that it is just a bit simple.

650ml bottle obtained in a trade with <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank>OKBeer, thanks Bobby.
Opened on February 24, 2007.
Production date is the 1st week of February 2007.

Gethinbeer (2146) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2008 From bottle. Rich fruity aroma, slight hoppy feel. Clear golden appearance with a thin frothy head. Rich fruity flavour, fresh feel. Tangy finish. I have to say the more I drink this IPA the more I like it. Its not really near my favourite, but its good. More flavoursome than the pale ale for sure.
