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.

Nice piney aroma combined with sweet malts. Looks very good but unfortunately the haed doesn’t last long. Taste is rather light initially until the heavy hops aftertaste kicks in on the back of the tongue. Nice IPA with good bang-for-the-buck ratio.

Extremely fruity aroma with much sweetness, and also some yeast notes. A nice taste of fruits again, however, it is not as much as the aroma indicates. The taste has furthermore a alcohol-taste which has great balance with the sweetness. The aftertaste last for a very long time (but not as long as Ølfabrikkens Rug IPA), and is a little fruity, with a good amount of bitter hops. At last in the aftertaste the frutiness becomes more distinct, and that a very nice finish, I think.

Bottle. Light amber color. Large frothy off-white head. Heavy hopy aroma. Bitter heavy initial flavor. Palate, medium to full.

East India Pale Ale from Brooklyn Brewery is not a typical IPA. It is heavier and has a flowery/fruity flavor like an english ale. The bitterness seems a bit hidden, and is only reveled in the aftertaste. Im really found of it though!

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 31, 2006
draught at the sunset grill 7/30/06. Pours a light copper color with a small white head. Nose is lightly hoppy and piney. Palate is medium and crisp, quite refreshing. Flavor is more of the piney hops and light sugary malt notes. Fairly standard but clean and seems well done.

Im generally not an IPA fan, but this one really hit the spot. It was heavier than many IPA’s that I have had, which I loved. The body and mouthfeel reminded me of an english ale. Nice hoppy finish that wasn’t overbearing, but not really any pine in the taste. Great aftertaste though, this is a perfect summer quencher.

Copper pour into the glass, with a quickly diminishing head and no retention, but some mild lacing to the glass. Aromas jump up pretty quickly, but aren’t too dense, with notes of light pine, then some citrus/grapefruit. Nicely hopped, there are flavors of caramel and mild grapefruit. The finish is lengthy and bitter. I miss a bit of the pine finish that traditional IPA’s offer nicely. It seems a bit dry for my taste, honestly, but nonetheless, it’s a good summer brew.

Bottle. Amber color. Aroma is sweet, with some hoppy aromas. Great hop and malty taste. Love the hops in the beer.

BitchesBrew (714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 25, 2006
[bottle] Clear amber color- with a white head that forms a ring around the glass. Aroma is pretty sweet, with some slight hops. A nice interpretation of the style- excellent balance of hops to malt. Perhaps a little hop-heavy, but that’s OK with me. Still, it’s very well balanced.

Pours a nice coppery color with a decent head. Aroma is that of hops and citrus. Flavor is rather intense. It has the butter smack in the face and finishes with a nice citrus touch.
