COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

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 (2857) - 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).

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.

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.

This is a very weird beer. Amnesia I.P.A. has a thin, egg-shell colored head and a hazy, dark amber appearance that really clouds up once one swishes the bottom 20% and pours it in. Little brown chunks are also floating about. The aroma is rich, caramel, grapefruit, and spicy, but the flavor comes across flat, watery, somewhat fruity (turned fruit, really), and odd. Mouthfeel is medium and fluffy, and Anmesia I.P.A. finishes fairly refreshing, yet one gets a bit of a turned flavor. Certainly, if nothing else, it’s interesting. I’d say it’s worth a try for those who like off-the-wall beer flavors. RJT

dchmela (2603) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Thanks to Maltjo for the bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a thick white head. Resiny pine hop aroma light malt body with resiny pine citrus hops. Much more of a standard ipa, easier drinking and sessionable. Decent brew.

Johnsense (753) - - JAN 7, 2012
Enjoyed (debateable) in the US after Christmas. Poured hazy amber with 2 fingers of head. Not much aroma - some malt and the faintest bit of hops. Taste was watery, earthy, some crystal malt, a slight bit more hops than an Alex Keiths. Went down like water but why would I want another? Ponder this - likely the best beer from this brewer.

mjg74 (2490) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Fairly light in color on pouring. Somewhat hopped nose with a bit of sweetness. Dry and somewhat earthy tasting. The hop character is there but it is extremely dry and subdued. A bit of a mineral tinge. Not too bad.
Earlier Rating: 9/9/2008 Total Score: 2.7
Bottle from Whole Foods. Deep amber in color on the pour. Really earthy/mineral aroma. Dry and peppery. Somewhat hoppy, but this beer seems to be dominated by sweet maltiness and a sort of mineral taste. Very funky tasting.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2011
What a light flavored IPA, I don’t mind it mild, but besides the lack of hops, its just a watery beer, the alcohol is well hidden, some sweet fruit flavor, but very lacking..weird brew!! drinkable, but strange..
