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.

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2007
Very unique smell and taste. Smells and tastes quite salty (reminded me of the Dogfish Head 60 or 120, but lighter). Looks like any other IPA. It’s not something you’d want to drink all the time, but it’s quite nice in it’s own right. Shocking at first, but quite nice as you get through the bottle.

theviolet (173) - New York, New York, USA - APR 3, 2007
Pourss a medium amber color with almost no head. Smells great lots of hops. Taste is good, not much alcohol or warming at all considering the high ABV. I would definetely buy this again, perhaps a 6-pack over the weekend. Great bitterness in the finish.

Bottle. Clear yellow/orange colour with medium head. Hoppy aroma. Fruity and malty flavor with bitter finish.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2007
Strange how this started off tasting funny (possibly the bottle wasn’t well kept) and then it grows on you. Smell is kind of musty at first, forest floor and gym bag/sweat. Lots of hops and a little malt balance, but off flavours of soap, cooking oil, tin can make it less than enjoyable. But as it warms, becomes more palatable. Great body.

garrison (792) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2007
From a twelve ounce bottle purchased at "Keller’s IGA" in Cincinnati, Ohio - This one pours a light amber brew with a tal, effervescent white head that quickly fades and a distinctly hoppy aroma. Tastewise, this is an interesting IPA, a bit more fruity than most, but with a definite bitterness at the finish.

eaglefan538 (2912) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Pours a clear orangey color, weak initial head for the style, as was the lacing. The aroma was oranges, pine, other citrus. The flavor was oranges, grapefruits, pine, lemons, finishing with a touch of bitterness, not all that harsh for an IPA though. The malty stickiness was there under all this, doesn’t really add much more than more oranges, but it was there. Mouthfeel was moderate for the style, carbonation not overly done (might have been able to use a tad more).

screigh (482) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Pours a VERY light amber color. Large white head with large bubbles. No lacing at all. Earthy almost dirty aroma. Taste is somewhat sour, hop bitterness and nothing. Very watery. This beer is not worth the price of admition! $12 a six pack is out of line. I would buy Red Hook or Sam Adam’s Pale Ales any day before this. While they aren’t good neither is this and they cost half as much.

spporras (259) - FINLAND - MAR 26, 2007
(Bottle BB 07/2007) Aromatic hoppy, citrus fruity and malty aroma. Bronze colour, very slightly hazy and small, more or less fully diminishing head with a hint of lacing. Citrus fruity, grassy, malty and moderately bitter flavour. Dry, softly carbonated and medium-bodied palate. Well balanced, crispy beer! 24/02/07

beergut111 (210) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 24, 2007
Pours a amber colour with a small head. Nice bitter finish with citrus notes. Despite its lower raing , I enjoye this better than the Dog Fish 60 min.

Miksu (5008) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2007
12 oz bottle. Light amber color. Fruity marmelade aroma with pepper, citrus, pineapple and orange. Flavor of exotic fruits with enough malt backbone. Some sharpness in the palate.
