2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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 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.

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

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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.

2.5 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 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.
