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.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2007
This is an excellent version of a classic british style pale ale. It has notes typical hops citrus and a nice malt mouthfeel. This transcends into a nice bitterness to finish it off.

BCAR (222) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2007
Pours a luminescent orange color. Carbonation is very low and kind of a boring thing to look at in the glass. Atypical IPA with much more malt content than hop prominence. I taste licorice and syrup along with a background of english style hopping. Seems like it would be good on tap with the English bitter style. Finish is slightly bitter and lasts.

12 oz. Bottle: pours a amber dark gold with an off-white head, malt sweet, flower and some pine scents, caramel fragrances, sweet, malt and hop citrus flavors, taste of some toasted malt, hop bite with a flavor of grapefruit, faint fruit flavor, not a lot of pine scents or taste like the other IPAs I have had, malt sweetness is balanced pretty well with bitterness, hop bitterness persists into the finish, this brew falls along the lines of a English IPA recipe.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2007
Great example of an IPA! Nothing outstanding about this beer but still very good. It poured a light copper color with a very minimal white head. I love the smell of this beer. The flavor contains all the usual IPA suspects: nice hop profile, pine, grapefruit. This beer was much better than I expected it to be.

Hoppy aroma. Dingy copper color, medium head, good lacing Well hopped ringed with vanilla. Finish is quality hops, but lingers a bit too long. Wow!

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2007
The aroma is full of hops with light pine, citrus and heavier floral notes and some caramel malt accents. The body is a clear copper/orange and holds a diminishing off white head. Nicely hoppy and bitter with an ample malt base that leans toward caramel. The hops are citrus, pine, floral and I get some light plae white fruit notes toward the finish. The finish is quite bitter, but the body is light and quaffable, something I prefer tot he many thick IPA’s coming out these days.
