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.

bomber shared with jsprime. his bottle. pours slightly hazed orange with a moderate slightly off white head. aroma of pale malt, citrus hops and a touch of cara malt. the flavour is the same. i feel like ive had this beer 1000’s of times before. very typical ipa. good but nothing special.

Gethinbeer (2212) - 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.

VertBaconStrips (2100) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 25, 2009
Poured out a clear, orangy gold, small white head fading to a skim and some random lacing. The aroma is weak but pleasant with peach and a bit more citrus, caramel, a touch of workout clothes, orange that is very very weak orange and almost a dry grass. The taste is weak and missing defined flavours, however it still is an IPA and that is fine, soft bitterness that actually covers the other flavours, weak pine. There is a decent bitterness and a touch of malt helps it out but it is still plain. Another miss by Propeller.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2008
650 ml bottle produced Sept 07. Pours hazy orange and is topped with a rocky off white cap,leaving good sticky lace. Grainy nose comes equipped with lots of fruit (pear, peaches) and caramel malts, with a touch of spiciness and pine. Tastes of sweet caramel and fruit with good bready component, leading to sharp piney hops and grapefruit. Dry, pleasant mouthfeel. Good. Thanks to my mom for the bottle.

TheJester (1963) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2008
341 mL bottle. Copper-orange with a quickly diminishing head. Hops are used well for aroma, but the beer could use a little more hop flavour and bitterness. It’s a nice beer, but it just doesn’t stand up to some of the big boys. Very drinkable, though, and a useful beer for introducing others to the style.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Transparent and pale orangish-copper in color with a saliva spittle and dusty grey wrung to form the head. Orange rind, laundry water, wet dog, simcoe and musty hard water do little to excite from the nose. Liquid farce is a watered down flavor. Hops barely bare their teeth, subsiding with citric oranges and sweet papaya. Mild carbonation merely masks a wishy-washy failsafe tenement. An uninspiring pale ale, but thanks to 1FastSTi for sharing, nonetheless.

patricks110 (1780) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 27, 2010
A solid IPA. Piney and citrusy aroma. Slight hops aroma as well. Dark amber gold colour with finger of white head. Taste is sweet citrus and pine. Little bit of hops. Very nice and very drinkable.

worldbeertaste (1693) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2011
Medium Orange copper with a thin lasting bubbling white head. Smell of malt, hop, yeast, flowery grass. Medium oily body with a mild carbonation. Light sweet start with a lasting bitter dry acid sour finish. Grass and citrus taste.

pootzboy (1597) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2006
Displays a deep orange amber in the glass...frothy 2 finger white cap with good retention and lacing. Aromas of sweet bread and citrus. Medium bodied decent malt spine, bright citrusy character, slick mouth feel. Up front a rush of sweet crystal malts which are quickly balanced off with ample grapefruit and pine tastes from some 60 min. boil warrior and dry hopped amarillos ( great hop blend)....finish is wet and pleasantly bittering with a bready/metallic aftertaste. A good solid craft IPA that sits somewhere between the milder session IPAs and the exterme hop bombs....goot hoppy character rich malts and decent drinkability.
