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!

Watery pour, ok smell. Dry taste with a light hop taste. Some sweet notes in it, a bit bland yet interesting and quite drinkable.

APPEARANCE: Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates at a normal rate. There is some nice lacing. AROMA: I smell more malts than hops, not what I expect for an IPA, the hops I do smell are grassy. FLAVOR: Light caramel malts to start then there is a small burst of bit of grapefruit bitterness which fades pretty quickly MOUTHFEEL: Light to medium bodied beer. Soft carbonation. DRINKABILITY: Easy drinking IPA that feels more like a pale ale. NOTES: BBCSD-0812-Sean

For an IPA originating west of here, seem far easier to classify as a pale ale. I know this is territory covered in conversation with a good old friend of mine, but find it true with this. Not bad, but does make me wonder if the amnesia represents not really being able to recall the specifics of the beer later as it is somewhat nondescript. No, it is NOT bad, Enjoyable even, but not hugely or in a way that will make me yern for more.

Bottle courtesy of bhensonb. Thanks Bill. Poured a red copper with small white head and light lacing. Nose of light citrus and flowers. Mouthfeel light. Flavor is lightly bitter. Not much bitterness in the finish . I like my IPA’s to be a little more lively but this was certainly drinkable.

Thanks to my friend Ray for sharing. Amber, mildly hoppy aroma and flavor. Nice, a very middle of the road IPA.

jake65 (2726) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 17, 2008
Bottle: Amber pour with a modest sandy head. More malt comes through than hops. Sweet, yet not any real citrus or fruitiness. Mostly a bit of malt with light florals and caramel malt.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 16, 2008
Bottle: Pours an earthy amber color with light head and lacing. The nose is faint and malty, thin though. the flavor is herbal with some pine and grass along with a chewy caramel malt tail Balanced finish. More like a malty pale ale or hoppy amber ale.

really solid IPA with a cool name. It’s not as hoppy or bitter as a normal IPA and would probably be a good APA, but nonetheless a good beer. out of bottle from Whole Foods Mountain View

Bottle from Whole Foods in Sacramento, CA. Brilliant reddish copper color with minimal white head. Aromas of roasted malt and florality. Near medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is a balance of lightly roasted malt and floral hop. Not all that bitter. Kind of like an ESB. Drinks pretty well.
