India Pale Ales were first brewed by British Brewers for the Brits when they occupied India. These ales were invented to meet the demand that the Brits had for their pints… The problem was that without refrigerated cargo containers the beer was spoiling on the voyage over; so the brewers discovered that if they “hopped” up the beer and rose up the alcohol content that the beer would arrive in fine shape. Following that long tradition Indian Wells Brewing Co. has made a classic IPA. This ale comes in at a more traditional IBU of 52; so if you’re looking for a crazy over the top IPA; sorry try another beer… But is you like a clean; dry hopped beer that compliments spicy foods or just like the taste of hops; give our Amnesia IPA a try today!

Sask89 (498) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - SEP 1, 2013
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.

IrishBoy (3960) - Bakersfield, California, USA - AUG 3, 2013
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.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 23, 2013
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. Serving type: bottle 11-24-2011

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2013
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.

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.

Nekronos (3742) - Xalapa, MEXICO - DEC 28, 2012
NIce and easy to drink. NOt much bitter but still an I.P.A. American style.

thooper41 (556) - BELGIUM - SEP 27, 2012
12 oz bottle: Appearance is an amber brown with slow fading off white head. Aroma is nearly nonexistant. Taste is slightly hoppy but fairly mellow with hints of caramel in the malt. Solid pale ale.

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.

dnstone (2370) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 11, 2012
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.

SDalkoholic (2237) - Linda Vista, California, USA - SEP 4, 2012
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.
