2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a cloudy copper with no head. Aroma is sweet, sugary malt. Flavor is sweet with barely a hop note. Flat too. Drainpour.

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

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy honey amber color in the glass. Slight wet cardboard aroma mixed in with a touch of piney hops. Watered down medicinal/minty hops flavor. Overall, it’s drinkable but not that complex or impressive.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Decent, but not special IPA. Taste is mild hops and wheat. Lacks any sort of punch.

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...

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
A - Slightly hazed amber with an off-white head that leaves descent lacing.
S - Sugary toffee malt, some buttery diacetyl, leafy, butterscotch
T - Medicinal-like herbal hops, toffee underneath, some band-aid and buttery flavors mixing around. Some light unkown fruitiness. The rough medicinal-herb flavor grows stronger as it warms and gets pretty distracting.
M - Good carbonation, light to medium body.
Good looking and average mouthfeel but there’s something not right about this beer.
