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!

Sammer (1101) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Decent, but not special IPA. Taste is mild hops and wheat. Lacks any sort of punch.

bb (7915) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Bottle. Ballistic Gargoyle IPA. Amber beer with a cream head. Grapefruit and light malt aroma. Grapefruit and light pine flavor with light malt. Body is a little lighter. OK bitterness. Grapefruit and light pine lingers with light malt.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2012
Amber colour and a slight off-white head. Nice hoppy aroma, though not very intense. This IPA falls through when it comes to the taste and palate, flavours are minimal, there’s a slight hoppy bitterness and some sweetness.

Barreras (1420) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Pours a penny copper color with aroma of light hops. Taste is mild with a slight metallic flavor. Slight bitterness in the aftertaste, the 7.2% alcohol is barely noticeable. A decent IPA...

As Ballistic Brewing Gargoyle IPA. Poured from the 12oz bottle into a shaker. Medium amber with a thin white head. Aroma is caramel and bread malts with a slight hint of floral hops. Flavor is bready malt with some floral hoppiness on the finish. Light bodied with a sharp mouthfeel. Overall this was quite underwhelming. Tasted more like a regular pale ale than an IPA. As a side note, for some reason the label shows a temperature of 14 degrees F, so perhaps this was meant to be enjoyed as a popsicle?

Bartzilla (590) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Pretty run of the mill IPA. They sure seem to be promising a lot on the bottle. Came in a 4 pack at Fresh N Easy. Neat label, average beer. Kinda taste like blood on the finish. Not sure how I feel about that.

fiveacestx (877) - Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Bottle - for reasons unknown to me, the label says "Ameni" instead of "Amesia" (whatever). Pours golden with an average head. Has sort of a watered down (yet dry) citrus taste to it and a metallic finish. Drank half and shared the other half with the kitchen sink.

mile (3638) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 20, 2012
Bottle. Light amber, average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and fruitiness, faint piney hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light fruitiness with light piney hoppyness. Finish is short to average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel, light piney hoppyness. Sweetish IPA with too much caramel (and not enough bitternes).

doboy (424) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - APR 13, 2012
All the way from Vegas! Thanks Ken and Tina! I think! Aroma was citrusy, sort of like orange. Poured an orangish color, hazy, with a head that took time to tame. retained extremely well. Flavor was more citrusy than anything, somewhat thin. Didn’t really work for me.

Ratman197 (12166) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2012
Bottle poured a clear orange amber with a lasting amber hgead. Aromas of crackers, earthiness, orange zest and light grapefruit. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of crackers, earthiness and light orange zest with a smooth lightly bitter finish.
