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.

Phatman (176) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2012
From bottle. Pours a dark golden colour with an excellent head atop. Potent pine aroma, Apples and a touch of lemon too. Prominent hoppy flavor as youd expect, not too sweet though more of a malty/caramel flavor. Lingering aftertaste and not excessively carbonated tick my box.

Tessic (1132) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2012
This IPA poured a light amber colour with a quick living, off white head. to the nose there are scents of citrus, dough and white bread. First sip was very hoppy with flavours of grassy hops and a little citrus. Very hoppy IPA

JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2012
650mL bottle, shared by a friend who was just out east. Pours a nice, somewhat deep copper with a large beige head. The aroma throws some decent hops in your face, but also a lot of malty characters. Flavour is extremely well balanced, sharp and dry from the hops but backed up very well by the malt body. Caramalt, toffee, fruity esters, citrus, with a bit of a dry finish. Body is medium and satisfying. I love well-balanced IPAs. This is what Keiths is supposed to be like.

reebtogi (6143) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 18, 2012
341ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that has decent retention and leaves a thin spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas are dominated by pine and citrus with some pale malts. Taste is also dominated by pine and citrus with some malty sweetness. This is a bold IPA which has a medium body with nice carbonation. A very nice representation of the style and definitely recommended.

worldbeertaste (1800) - 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.

rodenbach99 (4532) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 6, 2011
Bouteille de 341ml, Dakujem Patrick. Bire dore avec une mousse blanche (off-white). Le nez est malt, sucr, il donne limpression dune bire ronde, le houblon est aussi bien prsent. La bouche est bien charpente, le malt supporte bien les houblons. Lamertume en fin de bouche est bien agrable. Amricain comme IPA.

SlovakSniper (5467) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2011 (341 ml) Le liquide a une robe cuivre. La tte mousseuse est petite et dmontre une certaine tnacit. Une dentelle parse dcore le verre. Le nez prsente des parfums de caramel avec des houblons qui transpirent les oranges. Les saveurs sont douces, lgrement touches par le bois et le ct fruit des houblons. En bouche, le liquide a une belle tenue avec un corps moyen et une effervescence trs honorable. La texture est huileuse et plaisante. La finale est trs peu amre, bien porte par le sucr des malts. Trs similaire leur E.P.A.

Nice big hoppy beer. My only issue is that Im not getting any balance in it. Just hops. Wrong carbonation and nice dry finish.

Frothmeister (783) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
650ml bottle. Pours a clear amber, with an off-white head. The aromas are very faint, with very little hop presence on the nose, but for some reason big notes of apple juice, with some caramel. Starts slightly sweet, with some toffee, apple notes, and a decent whack of hops. Something about this beer seems slightly muted, like the flavours should be bigger, but arent. It kind of feels like its missing its middle.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 15, 2011
341ml bottle. The Propeller hops dominate this beer from start to finish. When you can taste anything else its pine and maybe a little citrus. Dry finish.
