COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn East India Pale Ale, originally a summer seasonal, has been getting raves since becoming a year round offering in 1996. Garrett Oliver, a student of English brewing and beer history, uses English malts and hops to brew his EIPA in the classic, heavily-hopped style of the 19th century beers created for British soldiers serving in India.

thirstyrabbit (1157) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle. Light amber/orange body. Medium head. Aroma is quite stale with hay and some dried tangerine peel. Light but sticky mouthfeel. Taste has old orange juice and some flat and dry bitterness without the fresh and vibrant zestiness that is found in good IPAs. Soapy finish. Not very good.

fkoolen (362) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2014
Clear amber colour, white foamy head. Pine and grapefruit hoppy aroma, crisp and dry bitter hoppy taste with a firm caramel malty backbone. English style IPA, not as floral and fruity as its American counterpart. Medium body, medium carbonation, oily mouthfeel.

ant_in_wales (11) - Aberystwyth, WALES - DEC 14, 2014
More malty than many IPAs, but this is an Anglophile beer. I like the citrus nose, clear appearance with light lacing. But the taste has become less palatable with time. The person who said bubblegum was on the right track. It’s worth a try, but it’s not your new best friend.
