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.

Frothmeister (770) - 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.

Tasted in Toronto. Obtained at Premier in Halifax. 650ml bomber. Tasted in 500ml dimple mug. Very clear, medium fluffy white head. Typical fluffy soapy aroma, relatively light constitution, mellow and very nice.

BrewGoblin (632) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Really digging this IPA and its big pine and resin blast, both in the nose and the tongue-o. Its a curiously light orangey-yellow with a thin ivory noggin. I really enjoy the bold flavour of this ol gal and could happily have a light sesh on her. A nice chewy and lightly greasy mouthfeel make this a wonderful chomper of an IPA.

HippyHop (611) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2017
Burnt orange pour with a big fluffy off-white cap. Pretty and promising start but my hopes fade a bit when I take a whiff. Caramel/burnt sugar, pine, bubblegum, soap and orange rind. Taste is less pleasant than the nose. Sugary malt with an acrid bitterness that lingers somewhat unpleasantly, like some long ago drunken hook up with a friend who isn't that hot anyway and now whenever you see each other there's this weird awkwardness that hangs over both of you, like you've both seen things you shouldn't have seen and now you can never look at each other the same again, and it doesn't really ruin the friendship but it definitely changes things and now you make excuses to avoid each other and even though it's something you'd been curious about for a long time, now you sort of wish the whole thing hadn't happened, sorry Sandy. So yeah, thats what this beer is. In a nutshell. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cask. Light golden with slight cloudiness. Very fresh aromas and flavours of pine hops and biscuit malts. Nice IPA.

Gluepot (578) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2016
A well laced white head on a golden body. The nose features honey, citrus and sweet malt. A really solid middle of the road IPA. The hops are engaging without being overpowering, featuring some lemon, melon and other tropical elements. Chewy biscuit malt and that touch of honey round it out.

Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUN 1, 2014
Not a bad IPA, but I will usually go for Garrison, when Im in Halifax. She is pretty juicy in the citrus and resin department. More hops than malt, so it isnt as balanced as i would like, but still really good. Has a strong face puckering bitter after taste, which I enjoy sometimes.

chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2007
Medium to dark gold in color. Mild aroma with only hints of dry hopping. Flavor was sweet and a bit weird - not sure what hops they use in this beer, but it was not a very good IPA compare to others out there. However, compared to Alexander Keiths IPA from Halifax its a winner.

plaugher (455) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 16, 2013
Bomber into a tumbler. Pours a clear golden colour with a light fluffy head and some lacing. Light grassy aroma, not too overpowering. Good hoppiness with sweet malts and some dry bitterness. Light and crisp.
