3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in Los Angeles (Ballistic Brewing Gargoyle India Pale Ale). Pours a hazy amber colour with a medium off white head. Aroma is more of caramel malts than hops; the aroma is kind of sickly sweet too. Taste is not too sweet and has a relatively decent bitterness to it considering the aroma. Light-medium body, average carbonation, smooth on the palate. Overall a decent IPA, I just wasn’t enamoured with it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from the brewery. Nose is light citrus, lemon rind, and a caramel bite. Clear copper orange with a medium, lightly lacing beige head. Flavor is lightly bitter with a hint of caramelly sweetness, and some white pepperiness.Like they said not overly hopped but refreshing.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
A - Slightly hazed amber with an off-white head that leaves descent lacing.
S - Sugary toffee malt, some buttery diacetyl, leafy, butterscotch
T - Medicinal-like herbal hops, toffee underneath, some band-aid and buttery flavors mixing around. Some light unkown fruitiness. The rough medicinal-herb flavor grows stronger as it warms and gets pretty distracting.
M - Good carbonation, light to medium body.
Good looking and average mouthfeel but there’s something not right about this beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Corn nuts and peppery floral hops. Hazy golden thin foam. Flavors of corn nuts soap metal and d battery. Wow. Thin tangy metal mouthfeel. Bad.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 3/20
This beer gets a lot of bad reviews from Hop addicts as currently labeled. Change the name to suite a Session IPA and ratings might go up. As is, Amnesia does make it forgettable.
I might buy again as a Summertime IPA.

NIce and easy to drink. NOt much bitter but still an I.P.A. American style.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I had this labelled as Ballistic Brewing Co Gargoyle IPA. It seemed overcarbonated which gave it a bit of a harsh texture. The flavour wasn’t as pronounced as most IPAs I’ve tried.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Label say Gargoyle IPA by Ballistic brewing. Copper in color with soap-sudsy white head. Lightly bready aroma, slight fruit character. Watery, bready flavor with some floral hops around the edges. Some alcohol in the finish. I can feel myself getting hung over from this beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Fresh and Easy: Slight scent of citrus perhaps orange peel and chance of honey, but smells cheap compared to most other IPA’s on the market. Color is a light golden honey liquid topped with a firm layer of soapy head that breaks down in less than a few minutes. The flavor taste of ground up flowers and water with a notice of spices, but in general, this was an awful attempt at an IPA. Just quit now since most of you’re guys recipes are weaksauce.
