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!

Rusty (1537) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Pours a hazy reddish yellow color with a small soapy head. Aroma of hops, malt. Flavor is hops, malt and finishes with a little hop bitterness. Slightly funky medicinal in finish. Not very good, but not terrible.

TXBadger (1478) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Pours an amber color with off white head. Some citrus and pine on the nose, but not overly aromatic; these follow onto the palate. Finishes ok.

Bottle: Nice clean IPA, a good session beer. Has all the basic characteristics well balanced. Nice.

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. Pours a hazy gold brown with a nice one finger head. Excellent aroma of citrus hops, caramel, honey. Flavor was disappointing, light hops but mainly roasted malts and soap.

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

mmmbeer (1251) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2009
12 oz. bottler served in shaker- poured very slightly turbid dark amber with copper tints, lively medium carbonation, thin strip of white atop of the liquid surface that kind of looked like a golf driver (?!?). Light aroma of caramel malt, a few hops, and my money going down the drain. Hits the mouth with a light-medium body, malt has been sweetened to a point where it’s a little too unrefined, bitterness throughout, some acidity on the finish. Definitely more like a pale ale than an IPA. I want to forget about this one much like it’s name- wait a minute, I have, it’s not here anymore.

degbert (1170) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Poured from bottle. Clean if light nose of citrus, floral (orange blossom?), and cut grass. Color is dark for an IPA; amber shading into bronze with a moussy, long-lasting, clingy head. Taste is refreshingly dry, with lime and herbal notes and a strong hops bitterness on the close. Not a hop bomb at all, which I like. Great, cleansing carbonation. Quite good.

bvc (1160) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAR 3, 2010
12oz bottle from ibrew2or3. Pours a slightly hazed dirty dark golden with a loose off white head. Nose is toasted white bread, hints of caramel and orange to add some sweetness and a touch of paint thinner...really all faint in assertiveness however. A sweet vegital and toasted bread flavor up front with very faint citrus and decomposing grass speckled in. Really watery, lacking in hops and just not very good.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Hazy and brown with an off-white head. Pine aroma, but not strong. Taste is more pine with bits of dark fruit. A good IPA that’s as advertised - not overly hopped.
