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.

Lots of citrus right from the start. A well balanced IPA, but could handle a little more hops.

From bottle. Pours a clear light orange with off white head. Nicely floral’d nose and flavor. Not much else though.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2006
Pours dark golden color with small head. Herbal sweet hop aroma. Upfront, almost floral sweetness and has a slight earl grey tea character. Long dry finish.

Lowe1983 (1349) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2006
Pours an amber color with a medium white head. Aroma is hops, citrus, caramel, and some floral hops. Flavor is strong of sweet malts at first then gives way to the citrus and floral hops. Decently bitter finish. Not too bad, but not my favorite IPA.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2006
Bottle: Poured a medium orangey color ale with a huge slightly off-white head with good retention. Aroma is well balance between sweet and floral malt and citrus hops. Taste is a combination of smooth floral and sweet malt with a medium bitter finish. Body is creamy and quite full. Overall, without being an extreme example of the style, this is well crafted and would do very well as a session beer.

cheeta (1181) - Langå, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2006
Heavy hopy aroma. Large frothy off-white head. Good lasing and mostly lasting longevity. Light amber color. Bitter heavy initial flavor. Palate, medium to full.

LadySusan (720) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2006
This I.P.A. is amber in color and has the aroma of hops. It has a fruity sweetness, but a bitter after taste. As an I.P.A. it is good but just good.

pilsnerrogge (2500) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2006
(Bottle, 6.9 %) Amber coloured with a slight haze. Sweet, resiny hop aroma. Quite sweet flavour. One-dimensional hop bitterness. Drinkable, but a bit simple.

collieman (191) - montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2006
Montreal beer fest, 2006. This was one of my favorites this year, and almost all of the hoppy ones were exelent. Lovley pale copper color, perfectly clear, thin fizz, but it wasn’t the first pour on that bottle, so who knows. Aroma is tangy, piney and very bitter. Taste is prodominantly smooth bitterness, with a little cedar and a touch of nutty malt, but mostley bitter. Aftertaste is tangy, bitter and finishes with a slightly sweet orange zest touch. Mouthfeel was silky, with a dry end. Great beer. Cheers
