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.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2010 Bottled. Clear, golden and with an off-white head. It has a nice, fruity hop-aroma, with grapefruit, pine and some hints of beef-stock. Hoppy and piny flavor as well, well balanced, and the stock-notes are present here as well. Medium to full body, quite drying, and a hoppy finish with some hints of alcohol.

Bottle at Patricks. It pours a clear golden body and a finger-thick off-white head. The aroma has a nice blend of malty sweetness and citrusy, resiny hops. The bitterness balances nicely with the malty caramel sweetness, but it’s definitely on the hoppy side. Full body, dry in the mouth. Nicely carbonated. Pleasant bitterness in the finish finish. A very drinkable one, although a bit moderate to todays standards. 101021

Amber, slightly red body with little head to speak of. Smells very hoppy, both bitter and citrus. Hops dominate the flavor, though there’s a fair bit of malt there to support it. On the upper side of medium bodied, with hints of syruppyness... Not sure what to make of this one. Pretty tasty and non-offensive. Actually pretty good, IMO. I’d get this again.

Bottled - Pours a clean amber with a fairly nice sized head.. Nose is tons of fresh picked hops..Flavor is resinous hops and lots of them... as the beer warms, more of the malt comes out.. Bitter on the back and sides of your tounge.. great IPA from Brooklyn

12oz brown bottle. Coppery orange colour, long lasting white head. Big citrus hop aroma - orangey and grapefruity. Sweetish caramel malt flavour with lemon and grapefruit hop background. Bitterness is modest, but there is a long hop aftertaste with some malt. Medium body, very lightly carbonated.

Not sure how I felt about this beer, yo. Da pour was da best ting about dis offerin’ from Brooklyn Brewery. The beautiful amber color wit da white ring was pleasin’ to da eye, but not much else. Da weak aroma was like da hops was tryin’ to come out but never made it, yo. Da taste was peculiar. It started out sweet, den mid swallow turned bitter. But not too bitter or two sweet. Dis beer could not make up its mind on what it wanted to be. Da only ting it wasn’t was great. I will not trow anudda one of dees down my troat (Sorry for Brooklyn Brewery I have to channel my inner NYC)

One of my favorite Brooklyn brews. Golden colour. Very fruity hoppy sweet aroma. Flavour is quite dry, a lot of fruity hoppiness, some lemon, good maltiness and some sweetness. Dry fruity looong lasting aftertaste.

(Bottle (best before 4/07) from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/maine/augusta/l target=blank>Lou’s Beverage Barn) A little light on the palate but a nice-tasting IPA...Pours clear light amber with about a finger and a half of fluffy biscuit head. Aroma is mostly flowery hops and a bit of breadiness. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth but kind of light. A few traces of lacing. Tastes of medium bitterness underlaying the flowery hops and perhaps some fruitiness. Perhaps some faint caramel and bread. Has kind of a light feel to it but seems like a good refined IPA (but probably well-filtered).

Bottle - huge grapefuit hop nose. Beautiful color ... deep golden with a touch of orange through it. Off white head that was gone with surprising speed. Maybe I babied the pour too much. Delicious beer! Big malt up front and a big, bitter hop finish.
