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.

beautiful golden colour .... a very hoppy smell .... which strange enough turns into a rather malty tast, pleasant nutty bitterness ... interesting brew, if I would have been tasting this blindfolded, I canít imagine placing this to NY ... pleased to give a good review to a US brew ....

12-oz. Dark brownish with bright caramel highlights. Light grayish film for a head. Nasty propane and sweat nose. Dry, fizzy, watery body. Not what I would have expected from Mr Oliver.

Bottle. Pours orange with a small white head. Aroma is fruity. Flavor is sweet whith a decent amount of bitterness. Decent beer just needs more depth.

Poured a dark amber with a small white head. Taste was a good balance of hops and sweetness with hints of pine and fruit. The aftertaste was slightly too bitter.

ChetLemmons (87) - orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2008
poured in tulip. hazy golden brown, very thin layer of white head that looks like itíll leave a pretty good lacing. the head quickly disappeared. very powerful aroma. hops, pine and fruit. taste is rather bland. more flavor in the aftertaste than anywhere else, however, way less bitter than i was expecting, which in this case was a disappointment.

holdenn (2100) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2008
2/4/08 12 oz bottle from Liquor Store down the street. Pours a clear orange with a creamy off white head. Nose is muted hops. The citrus, pine, floral notes with oranges, and caramel malts. Flavors are a lot of the oranges, floral notes, with lemon and earthy notes that arenít all that enjoyable. Not a bad IPA, but nothing to write home about.

Amber color with good creamy head. I was expecting American citrus hop aroma but got a strong floral and fruity hop aroma with a caramel malt backbone. Flavor is more high pitched; dominated by the floral/fruity hops with strong bitterness. Alcohol taste at the finish. Thin to medium body. An American amount of English style hops.

FatPhil (12201) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 1, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2008 350ml bottle. Lovely fruity bitter aroma, slightly sweet. Sticky in the mouth, alcoholic too, and the hoppiness is a bit resiny. Pleasant, but a little one sided - the malt is almost non-existent compared to the hops. Also, the alcohol is too prominent, there was no need for it to be brewed to this strength. I suspect 19th century English beers were absolutely nothing like this American brew. Get back to studying, Garrett.

Smells of sour citrus hops, faint grapefruit. Pours a clear copper color with a nice thick white head. Taste is strong hops with a well-balanced malt presence. Some earthy notes as well. A nice IPA.
