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.

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!

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.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2009 Pour is penny color with a small white head . Nose is citrus. Flavour is lots of hops and some cirtus fruity notes. Bitter ending but not over the top. Very enjoyable

Ontbeertaster (2362) - 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

Phatman (176) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2012
From bottle. Pours a dark golden colour with an excellent head atop. Potent pine aroma, Apples and a touch of lemon too. Prominent hoppy flavor as youd expect, not too sweet though more of a malty/caramel flavor. Lingering aftertaste and not excessively carbonated tick my box.
