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!

Cloudy dark amber color. Caramel aroma, some residual hop. The body is quite weak, especially evident in the end; there is some buttery caramel flavor, enough bitterness, but no quality. Too old.

bhensonb (15492) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Bottle from Whole Foods in Sacramento, CA. Brilliant reddish copper color with minimal white head. Aromas of roasted malt and florality. Near medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is a balance of lightly roasted malt and floral hop. Not all that bitter. Kind of like an ESB. Drinks pretty well.

slowrunner77 (12460) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 7, 2014
another cardboardsque offering from IW. more lively hop profile than the other 7 we tried, but really, that’s not saying much. the cloudy light orange looks identical to the pale ale, smells and tastes a little old and musty with a muddled midwest hop profile."

daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Copper pour. nail polish, old hops, corn, plastic. Flavor is very bitter and in a chemical kind of way. Where are the hops? This is terrible.

DuffMan (10549) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 27, 2010
Bottle. Pours a nice looking dark orange with a short-lived head, no lace. Low hop aroma, slightly fruity but more reedy/vegetal really. The flavours are the same, with rather dumbed-down hops and thin malts.
