New Scotland Brews--Propeller Double IPA
Another Propeller Brewing Company offering, Propeller Double IPA hails from Halifax, Nova Scotia and comes in 500mL bottles. At a sizable 8.2% alcohol, PDIPA is a Haligonian ale that packs a punch. It's a clear copper brew that pours with a healthy measure of off-white head.
To the nose, it's sweet, fruity, and backed by a bitter blast. Likewise, its flavour has a load of sweet elements that kindle before a bold, hoppy flame. Flowery and a tad dank, there's some real life in PDIPA, particularly toward the back end.
It's a beer that suffers from over-sweetness, but benefits from vivid heat, powerful hops, particularly as it finishes.
Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
