2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle -
This is an IPA for what kind of beer drinker exactly? Because it’s gotta be the person who doesn’t know what an IPA should be about, or the person who’s a lush and doesn’t care. An overload of boiled cabbage in the aroma. Dirty penny/iron-y flavor void of any hops. Didn’t seem infected at all, just a crappy beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with some floaters and a 2 finger billowy off-white head. The nose is malt and soapy hops. The taste is malt and some sour fruity hops, cherry-like flavor with a bitter resin finish. Medium bodied. Not too terribly bad sans for that distracting taste in the middle.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle from Whole Foods La Jolla. Pours mostly clear burnished copper amber color, with little to no head, just a ring of bubbles that leaves occasional spots of lace. Definitely a classic style IPA, with aroma of toasty and biscuity malts, hints of nuttiness, light florals, mild citrus and bitter herbs in the hop profile. In the flavor, the malts start a little more fruity, but still with some toastiness, hops quickly come on strong and are very herby, a bit grassy with a slight dusty fir character, leading to a drying, bitter pine sawdust finish and lingering aftertaste. Palate is light bodied, with a pleasantly gentle prickliness from the carbonation. Not at all my preferred style of IPA nor hop varieties.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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

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..

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a penny copper color with aroma of light hops. Taste is mild with a slight metallic flavor. Slight bitterness in the aftertaste, the 7.2% alcohol is barely noticeable. A decent IPA...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
