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.

Thanks again to OKBeer! Copper color, nice white head, but very short retention (may be a little warm, so I wont deal with severely) Intense hop aroma, alcohol laces on the glass. Taste is fade for the first second, then it feels medium malty and ends with a very nice hop finish.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 26, 2006
Bottle: Darker golden, fairly clear, moderate off-white foamy head, fairly nice lacing.   Soft bready malts along with a nice dose of hop bitterness.   Seems a bit caramely even.   Slight buttery tea leaf on first sip.   Somewhat stale hop flavor.   Soft malt base.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finish seems a bit dirty, like bad water or something.   Tiz okay, but very low on the IBU scale.   Not crisp, but still decent.   Thanks jerc for the bottle!

Tmoney99 (11093) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 14, 2007
Bottle from and shared with shigadeyo. Poured clear copper with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus aroma. Medium body texture. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Drinkable brew.

Hazy yelllow color, small white head. Grapefruit hoppy nose. Grapefruit-pine needles in the flavor. Long bitter aftertaste. Good balanced quality IPA but without character.

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.

beernbourbon (1326) - 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.

The Propeller brewery always pleases me. This one pours a nice penny color with a very small but lasting head. This brew doesn’t lace the glass. I think it is a bit too tame. Should have everything as is but up the intensity on it all.

BuckeyeBoy (2878) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 22, 2011
On tap at Propeller in Halifax. Pours out golden topped with a tall fluffy head. Aroma was of citrus hops, grape fruit juice, light pine, and a good amount of toast. Taste was more of the grapefruit citrus hops, some lemon zest and a good malt backbone. Not a over the top IPA just a casual drinker.

gramity (1462) - 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.

This was a pretty good IPA. Fresh tasting hops, biscuity malt profile, and a nice balance between the two.
