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!

DuffMan (6439) - 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.

marcus (6303) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 27, 2008
This red ale kpoured with a thin beige head and a sweet malt aroma. It is a refrehsing IPA that is not as hoppy as most. The malt and hips are well-balnce, resultng in a satisfying brew.
