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.

Bottle pours a golden copper. head quickly dissapears. The aroma is of bitter hops and some malty fruit sweetness. The flavor is actually quite malty and rich. The bitterness does not hit you until the finish. There is a warm alcohol bite there at the end. Meh. Not very impressive.

Nephilium (1473) - Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Starts with citrus hop aromas, with an underlying candy sweetness. Clear amber with a thin white head. Flavor is interesting, a start of sweetness, then a jump to citrus bitters. It seems to be missing something, an almost hollow flavor. Very short finish, but still very drinkable. Iíll need to get a fresher bottle of this to taste to see if the age has effected it (Marked best before 04/07).

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Bottle @ Bar Americain in Manhattan. Transparent copper pour with a small white head. Nice mixture of citrusy hops and malt in the aroma and flavor. Not a stand-out, but a solid IPA

jlruthven (587) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Nothing to rave about, but better than the average. Pours dark orange, nice white head. Nose is slight orange, a touch of mango and duh! hops. Taste is the same, with the orange and hops coming through in full force. Iíd drink a few of these at a time.

tgncc (2998) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2009 Aroma is very hoppy, a little bit of citrus, combined with a nice caramel maltiness. The color is a nice clear copper, medium white head. Flavor is grapefruit, caramel, bread, common for the IPA style, but well put together. Finish is bitter, citrusy and a slight metal taste. Medium thickness, slifght oilyness. Decent IPA, defintely holds its own.

nick76 (4304) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2007
The aroma is very hoppy as well as malty and quite nice. The appearance is amber gold with a foamy head. The flavor is bitter but not very piny or citrusy. The malts are biscuit like. The palate is smooth. Overall a nice beer.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a small white head that fades to a ring leaving some lacing. Aroma is fruity and loaded with sweet malt and floral hops. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a well balanced bitterness. An underated IPA.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Nice aromas, hitting me with citrus tones and hops. The taste is great; like any good IPA, it finds the balance of hops, bitterness, and tastes very well. The first Brooklyn beer Iíve had, and itís very good.

demitriustown (1118) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUN 22, 2007
12 oz bottle: Aroma of fruity hops, light malts, somewhat heavy, and lightly creamy scent. Appearance is a amber/orange color with a small head that dissapears quickly. Taste consists of a bit fruity hop note, grapefruit, pine needles, and a ever so lightly sprinkling of caramel malts intermingled with some spice. Aftertaste is bitter and really crisp for an IPA. Overall, Very nice IPA. I like this one! Cheers!!!
