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.

pootzboy (1673) - 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.

Reimer96 (1645) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
Pours a clear golden color with a white head that dissipates into a white hat that leaves some nice sticky lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine, toffee and some kind of sweet green apple on the end. Taste is slight citrus up front with a burst of grapefruit bitterness. Hop bitterness is pretty present and sticks around at the end.

kevinsenn (1597) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle from LCBO. Hazy gold. Aroma: peach and pine. Taste: pine, fruits, medium-bitter finish. An relatively easy-drinking IPA, nothing wrong with it.

gramity (1582) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 23, 2011
Clear amber and orangey colour with a one finger head that turns into a sticky ring of lace. The aroma is spicy, piney, and floral but not quite as potent as I have experienced in other American IPAs. The taste is more assertive with some hints of toffee and strong citrus. There is nice bitter finish to each sip. This beer goes down quite smooth. This is one of the more well balanced IPAs I’ve enjoyed.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUN 13, 2007
(650 ml bottle (produced in week 1, May ’07) from the brewery) Nice, a little light in just about every way...Pours light slightly amberish gold with three fingers of pillowy white head. Sweetish aroma of light toffee, pine and flowers. Mouthfeel smooth, feels a bit light. Lots of foamy rings and sheets of lacing. Flavor is good but on the mild (and probably filtered) side - light malt sweetness overlain by medium bitterness with pine and flowery, very lightly fruity hops. Slight metallic taste detected a couple of times.

coldbrewky (1535) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Bottle via OKbeer. A solid and stable example of an IPA. nose is butterscotch covered hops....yeah I know. A deep amber with a finger thick oily tannish head. Settles with dense fine lacing to a dozen lilly pad carbonation points. Three separate waves of hops hit the tounge from start to finish. Body is medium. a nice one.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Bottle from jerc and OKBeer. Thanks for the history lesson commercial deScription. Clear copper color with a beige head. Full hoppy aroma, citrusy and herbal. Nice malt balance in the aroma and flavor. Bitter finish, long lasting. Medium bodied and very drinkable. Its good to see more Canadian brewers getting this style right.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2006
Hazy copper w/ light tan foam. Light citrusy hop aroma over a bed of caramel & toffee. Moderately sticky feel. Clean flavour & though sufficiently bitter, somewhat balanced toward the malt.

beernbourbon (1426) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Thanks to OKBeer for this Canadian gem. Pour is beautiful copper color with minimal white head. Aroma is hops and bubblegum up front with malt, grapefruit hops, and yeast in back. Flavor is hops, malt, oregano, and yeast with a mild chemical background. Finish is crisp and refreshing. Solid stuff.
