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!

Pours dark hamber with haze, small suspended yeast particles, and a medium sized head. Nose has an off-toffee aroma. On the palate the beer comes across as watery, low on hop flavor, and has a somewhat chalky character. Some off-flavors on the finish too. Avoid this beer if you can.

12 oz. hazy dark amber with virtually no lace, head, or legs. dirty laundry on the nose, along with tons of sweat and butter. creamy medium body with light carb. pennies and battery licking flavors on the mid palate. tangy buttery finish.

DuffMan (8167) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 27, 2010
Bottle. Pours a nice looking dark orange with a short-lived head, no lace. Low hop aroma, slightly fruity but more reedy/vegetal really. The flavours are the same, with rather dumbed-down hops and thin malts.

Ibrew2or3 (7565) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Picked up at Keg and Barrel 15th street in Plano, TX. 12oz bottle pours up deep gold with a touch of haze to go along with copper hues and weak loose off white head. The aroma has a disjointed mix of caramel, maltiness and sharply bitter smelling grapefruit. The taste is similar starting with a brief nearly tasteless sweet note that gets clobbered by carbonation enhanced sharp to tart to nearly sour citrus bitter notes. It sort of stays citrus tart and almost sour into the finish.

12-oz bottle Marcello’s Lafayette, LA - Aroma - toasted, biscuit (malt); Flavor - sweet, salty, bready, toasted, biscuit (malt), finishes dry; Appearance: hazy golden to orange color with white head; Mouthfeel: light bodied, moderate carbonation; Overall: not a balance of hop and malt IPA beer with no presence of hops. However, a nice malty taste beer. I don’t think the lack of hop aroma and flavor is due to an old bottle. I would be amazed if hops could drop out this much.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Nice hoppy smell, but not really in the taste. Flavor is almost sweet, but not really. Interesting, but not one I’d buy again.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Pours a cloudy copper with no head. Aroma is sweet, sugary malt. Flavor is sweet with barely a hop note. Flat too. Drainpour.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 21, 2009
This was an IPA??? Sugar sweet candy aroma. Appearance was murky and somewhat brown. Flavor was soapy and watery. The only way you could tell this was a beer was the sweet corn malt and decent bittering to it. Poor attempt of an IPA to me.

bu11zeye (12353) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2009
(12oz bottle) Pours a lightly hazy amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma of apple, nuts, toasted grain, grass, and caramel. Flavor of caramel malt and mild hops (grass, floral).

AmEricanbrew (6438) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Crystal clear amber with a fleeting head. Mild grassy hop aroma. Medium body. Earthy tea leaf hop flavors on a caramel malt base brew. Not too bad.
