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.

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 25, 2011
Single bottle purchased from Zyn Liqour in Calgary, AB on 06/24/2011. Colour: Slightly dark yellow with low head. Nose: dry hops, dijon mustard, ancient deadfall wood, brisk citurs (grapefruit?). Taste: Light sweet, medium bitter, light sour. Strict and to the point. No caramel or toffee undertones to lighten up the bite of the hops - this one is pure pine pleasure. Some dark cocoa notes muttle about. Finish is bitter and hop dominant. Completion of this beer makes you feel like a job well done.

On tap - dark gold with a medium head and lacing. Nice dry hop profile. Decent brewski!

MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 14, 2014
This was a pretty good IPA. Fresh tasting hops, biscuity malt profile, and a nice balance between the two.

3.2
Frothmeister (835) - 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 aren’t. It kind of feels like it’s missing its middle.

gilvanblight (825) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2013
Weak grassy scent. Light golden pour with a bubbly head. Very easy to drink. Doesn’t have that IPA bite. Neutral on this one. I’m guessing most pale ale fans won’t like this one much

3.7
Gluepot (733) - 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.

HippyHop (715) - 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

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2008
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.

3.6
lukin (671) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014
cask. Light golden with slight cloudiness. Very fresh aromas and flavours of pine hops and biscuit malts. Nice IPA.

2.2
shawnmurphy (635) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - JUL 9, 2017
16-ounce can from LCBO in Toronto pours slightly hazy orange-gold with small soap-bubble white head and some lacing. Aroma: malt vinegar. Flavor: honey, some citrus, grapefruit, malt vinegar. Mouthfeel: medium-bodied. I bought three cans and all were sour like this. Something must have gone wrong in the shipping and storage process because I can’t believe this brewery would intend to brew what I tasted.
