Bottle from the brewery shop.
Pours a crystal clear deep straw color with a huge tightly bubbled white head that leaves a huge a mount of stickies on the glass. Carmel, earth, and pine in the aroma. The flavor is caramel and earth again with a touch of resin and a hint of alcohol. Sweet maltiness with just a touch of hop flavor and bitterness. Medium body and a moderate level of carbonation. English style maybe, but really tame for an ipa, or too much crystal malt to let the hops shine through. I could drink this there’s nothing wrong with it but it has a 90’s old school feel to it. goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2008
Poured a clear deep golden color with a small white head. Sweet malt aroma with some floral ans sugary caramel notes. A little on the earthy side as well. The flavor was malty but short. The finish was semi-dry with a long bitterness from the middle to the finish. Frank (4220) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2014
This is a decent hoppy beer. It pours clear golden and clear with a big foamy head. Nose is citrus zest, mango and some woody pine. Some sweetness brings out the pine in a pleasant way. This is very bitter which does a great deal to bake the full bodied sugary sweetness. It finishes with a bit of tropical fruit and piney, resinous bitterness. Not bad.

JoeMcPhee with the ill Canadian hook ups. I mean really, I would never get to try all this fine Canuck beer if it was not for him, thank you very much Joe (oh yeah, blame Canada). 22oz bomber pours a dark golden color. Aroma is apple-like hops with some musky-lagered aspects. Taste is a a bit thicker malt biscuit with plenty of light hoppiness.

341 ml bottle from NSLC. Pours hazy orangey gold with a thin white head. Very strong citrus hop nose with some sweetness and a sharp hoppy taste. Soft to moderate carbonation with a bitter finish. probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2013
341 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass. shigadeyo (3759) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2007
App.: Slightly hazy deep amber with a small off-white head.
Aroma: Lots of sticky caramel, some butterscotch, floral and resinous hops, lemony citrus, almost brothy, slightly peppery, a little dusty/musty, a bit fruity, a little too malt-forward for my tastes.
Palate: Medium+ body, moderately prickly effervescence.
Flav.: Some pine/resin hops, mild citrus zing, still plenty of caramel malt, a touch dank and a bit fruity, less broth/dust than the nose, alright; dry with pretty good bitterness and a fairly nice pine/resin/floral hop finish.
Not perfect for my palate, but pretty good.
9/05/2007: Propeller IPA is golden in color with a slight orange tnge to it. There is a frothly off-white head that leaves some thin lacing. A toffee maltiness mostly comes through in the aroma. There is a little sweet candy quality that is in the background. The flavor is malty and sweet light candy with citrusy tangerine hops. The bitterness is mild to moderate. The beer has a medium body and is quite flavorful, but not very much bitterness (a bit more for the style would have been welcomed). Overall it is still a solid, sessionable IPA.gegwilson (3752) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2013

Bottle sourced from the brewery by the lovely Ellen & Malcolm. Pours amber with a big foamy head. Quite sweet at first with notes of caramel and biscuit before a lovely bitter hoppy finish with a blast of tropical fruit and just a nice amount of alcohol. A very nice IPA. pintbypint (3723) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 6, 2010
341ml brown bottle. Golden with a bit of haze. Small but creamy and lasting white cap that leaves just a touch of lacing. Aroma has sweet orange, caramel and a touch of sharper citrus. Caramel malt background, orange/citrusy middle. Finishes with grapefruit, moderate bitterness hangs around. Aftertaste is a bit grassy and grapefruity. Medium body with average carbonation. Decent, rounded IPA.
