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.

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2009
Bright copper body with a small white cap. Citrusy hoppy aroma with toffee and apple. Taste is watered down with a soapy citrus hop flavour. The bitterness is very noticeable but not over the top. Leather starts to appear in the finish, could use more malt character. Good brew to just sit a drink but its a bellow average IPA and not worth the 20$ a sixer.

XaenDovet (1282) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 22, 2014
Had in bottle before, but this time a pint at hart & thistle. Clear light amber. Light caramel and citrus nose. Similar in taste. Good, but not as good as I remember.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2009
12oz bottle from Firefly. Aroma is slightly piney with a resonant caramel malt hit. On pouring it is a golden honey with thin head. Taste is grassy hops with a slight citrus hit. Slightly nutty malt soon takes over with a small hop sting lingering. Sadly its paired with a metallic aftertaste that isnt welcome. Decent effort but not great.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2013
11.5 oz bottle from the LCBO, served in a snifter. Pours clear amber with a moderate tan head that remains and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has notes of pine and toasty malts along with resin and citrus. The flavour is moderately bitter throughout with notes from the nose along with subtle caramel toasty malt sweetness. The finish is moderate in length with a mild grassy hoppy bitterness. On the palate it is light-medium in body with a milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall this is a decent piney, resinous IPA in the English style. Subtle and tasty, very well brewed. 2013-03-11

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
Pours a clear amber colour with small white head quickly dissolving to a thin white ring which leaves some sticky lace up the glass periodically. Aroma consists of citrus, pine, pale malt, sweet apple. Flavours are citrus, grapefruit, resin, majorority of mouth feel is just bitterness without much anything else.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2008 341 ml bottle, re-rated blind side by side with Garrison Imperial Pale Ale. Pale golden amber colour with a mostly lasting frothy off-white head. Orange, bread, caramel, floral, and fruity aroma with some additional citrus notes including lime, tangerine, and grapefruit. Bready malt backbone with a piny, woody, grapefruit, orange, and resiny bitter finish. Medium to full bodied, juicy but sticky mouthfeel. Overall I prefer the Garrison ImPA compared to Propeller, but the Propeller comes across as the more complex of the two. Certainly nice to have both of them around. 7/4/7/4/14

650 ml bottle. I dont think Ive ever been this excited about a new local beer. So much so Im prepared to be disappointed. But Im not. Copper colour with a mostly lasting frothy and creamy off-white head. Caramel, lots of tangerine and lime citrus aroma, plus light bready and pine notes. Toasty and caramel malt flavours make way for a long but not overbearing grapefruit and tangerine pithy bitter finish. Medium bodied, juicy and quenching - like biting into a fresh ripe grapefruit. Not the hop monster I thought it might be, instead a nicely balanced well made IPA. 8/4/8/5/16

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.

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.

Milton LCBO Outlet #1 (Milton, Ontario, Canada)

The beer pours a translucent metallic gold with a slow forming snow white head. The aroma is citrus, caramel, and earthy notes. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is light grapefruit, some caramel, some grains, and a decent bitter finish. Quite good.
