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.

Light amber color, large head. Has a very sweet taste, kind of strange for an IPA. Has more hop aroma than taste. Also has the signature Brooklyn after taste. Not a bad beer but not too great of an IPA.

fbennett (293) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Poured a rusty orange leaving a thick frothy white head that leaves a lace that is sticky and frothy. The smell is honey, spices, hop citrus with a strange nutty background. The taste starts with a bitter bite followed by a citrus rind bitterness that helps balance out the malty caramel flavors found within. The finish again takes you to a grapefruit background but is kind of watery and lacking that super sharp hop bitterness but is typical of an English style pale ale.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2007 Pale yellow with white head. Citrus and flowery aroma = sweet taste - malts. Bitter finish. easy drinkable and very decent.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2006
Yep, its a rather strong IPA. Strong in flavor insead of strong in hops. A good flavor but not my type of IPA at all.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2006
12 oz. Pours a dark golden/light amber with medium carbonation and a long lasting off white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of mainly citrus with some malt, light pine, taste is sweet malt up front, quickly followed by citrus hops and a good bitter finish.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Pours a nice deep amber color. Aromas of hops, caramel, some herb, and a touch of nuttiness. Taste was well balanced to start then the hops almost kicked in. Medium grapefruit flavors with malts and a crisp dry finish.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Bottle: Pours a light orange/gold color, sticky white head and lots of lacing. The nose is very earthy and citrusy, but not near floral enough of an IPA for my liking. San Diego and Portland have ruined me for this style. The flavor is balanced though, piney and tangy. Not too bad, but the hop inflation of these days just doesn’t buy as much bread as it used to. Finishes balanced, good.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Clear metallic-orange body with a sudsy white head. Aroma of fresh cut grapefruit and orange plus some grass and earth. Juicy flavor and texture with moderately coarse bitterness. An easily quaffable IPA that’s not bad to have on hand.
