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.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2005 [Bottle 650ml, 15C, 1 month old]
Thanks again to OKBeer! Copper color, nice white head, but very short retention (may be a little warm, so I wont deal with severely) Intense hop aroma, alcohol laces on the glass. Taste is fade for the first second, then it feels medium malty and ends with a very nice hop finish.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2006
650 ml bomber courtest of OKBeer. Late November, 2005 bottling. Deep golden beer. Strong cascade type hop aroma, some nice sweet toasty malts backing it up. Flavour is a bit bready. Well balanced, sweet grapefruit and orange citrus flavour over some light sweet malt. Bready mouthfeel. Tasty but the bitterness could definitely be ramped up about 10 IBUs.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2016 Smell: Bready, muted hops, bit skunky. Taste: Bitter, grapefruit w/sour note. Finish: Bitter, citrus rind, woody resin, very dry. (tasted 03/10/16 from a bottle that may have been stale - 3/4/4/3/8 total 2.2) Re-taste from can: fresher hops without the skunky smell or sour note. Fruity (orange & melon), less dry than earlier.

Rastacouere (6176) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2006
A gentle white cover garnishes the clear pale gold body. Slightly oily, woody nose reminds of cedar . The aromatics are bright and focused, piney, green and fresh. The parade keeps up on the palate, fresh flavours of earth, wood, pine gum intermingle. Unfortunately, the weak body shows little carbonation to tighten it all together and remains very thin, giving it a rather processed feel. Otherwise, the flavours are really pleasant and refreshing.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2006
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.
