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.

2.5 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.

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.

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 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.

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

3.5 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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice amber color. Only light aroma of fruity hops. Flavor is some hops up front and a decent malt profile. Medium to light body. A slight lingering hop essence. Not especially hoppy for an IPA but drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
really solid IPA with a cool name. It’s not as hoppy or bitter as a normal IPA and would probably be a good APA, but nonetheless a good beer.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours dark hamber with haze, small suspended yeast particles, and a medium sized head. Nose has an off-toffee aroma. On the palate the beer comes across as watery, low on hop flavor, and has a somewhat chalky character. Some off-flavors on the finish too. Avoid this beer if you can.
