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.

shigadeyo (3788) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2007
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.

650 ml bottle (6.5% alc./vol. / Production date: Month=May, Week=1) from porterhose via trade. Thanks Kevin! Shared with Tmoney99 at the Dilly Deli. Rating #49 for this beer...

Pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is grapefruit, apricot and some citrus with the malt sweetness. Taste is a blast of grapefruit, tart citrus and apricot hop bitterness with small malt sweets. Interesting IPA. First one I’ve had that really leans towards the citrus and tartness

Metalchopz (3515) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2017
Pours a clean golden-amber colour with a creamy off-white head that has good retention and great thick lacing. Grassy hop nose with some blending yeast and mild caramel malts in the back. The taste is grassier with the yeast, again shifting things from an IPA to almost, a Belgian IPA. Smooth mouthfeel with a little dryness in the finish. Different, but decent overall.

The pour reveals a slightly cloudy copper color with a thin white head. Decent aroma of resinous and spicy hops with caramel malt. Good flavor of spicy and resinous hops with caramel malt and a bitter finish. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and lively carbonation.

GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2005
Sample at DougShoemaker’s 2005 December gathering - bottle courtesy of jerc & OKBeer via mr_kimchee. Clear amber with a tiny white head. Great aroma - fresh, fruity, herbal hops, really nice. Flavour has the expected strong hop character, but a good malt balance to keep things in line. Another solid beer from this great little brewery - and thanks to my brother-in-law in Halifax, I’ve got a bottle to drink & enjoy all by myself!

ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2007
Bottled at SBWF. Hazy golden with orange edges. Dryish aroma of grapefruit and grass. Hoppy and bitter flavour of grapefruit, grass and pine-needles. Long bitter finish of grapefruit and salt.

From jerc. The beer pours to a glowing orangish copper body with a nice white head. The aroma is very English. Caramel, butterscotch, English hops. The flavor is caramel, floral English hops. Light butterscotch. The palate was moderate at best. A disappointment.

rederic (3344) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2007
650ml bottle, bright golden color, with a frothy white head, sweet floral hop nose, with a mild leafy and grassy accent, with a faint citrus note, a subtle hop spiciness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet pale malt, a mild hop piney character, with a faint juicy hop citrusy accent, with a light honeyish note, leading towards a sweet floral hop peachy fruitiness and a lingering leafy bittering finish.

Ontbeertaster (3208) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2011
Bottle, Very malty for an IPA, it is a little citrusy. I found the first few sips some what bad. But as I drank more I began to enjoy it a far bit. It had a decent bitterness to it. Overall good and easy drinking stuff that I would have again

DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2005
Very orangey hop aroma, copper, with a small tan head. Flavour is full orange hops, piney as well, nice malt backbone. Medium bodied, well balanced, hops dance on the tongue, fine bitterness. Great! Thank You jerc and OKBeer!
