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.

A good beer experience. One could comfortably down a few of these tastys in a sitting and not get tired of the flavor or the weight of the beer. Nice light sugar pine aroma and flavor. Delivers your hop fix with easy drinkability and without going over the top.

JCastner (112) - New York, USA - AUG 16, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2008 Great color. Aroma of Fuggles and a slight bit of malt. Good balanced flavor. Not bad. This is a nice break from some over-the-top American IPAs.

Cask at the Old Toad in Rochester, NY. Light orange gold creamy off white head. Floral hops in aroma and flvor, sweet with a nice bitterness. Lingers nicely very floral not dry but not sweet a nice balance with enough bitterness to keep you interested. Quite good

mybestfriend (263) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark golden colour with a white head. The aroma and the flavour both gives proof of an average IPA - notes of citrus fruits, hops, some fruity notes and malty caramel.

The beer was quite enjoyable...my initial impression was that the beer was heavy on bittering hops, but less on aroma or flavor hops. As the beer warms some of the bitterness mellows out to allow the english malts to come through nicely. There are some piney notes from the hops, and not a particularly noticeable yeast character. I think this is a nice solid IPA but not one of my favorites as IPA’s go. A good beer but not for a session

A340Spotter (5) - Humble, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2008 does not count
Bottle poured into a pint glass. Hoppy, bitter flavor that went well with the salmon we cooked up that night. Less aftertaste than other EIPA’s I’ve had. Very nice overall.

markwise (5187) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2008
UPDATED: APR 12, 2012 This beer pours a deep amber with a tiny, yet noticeable white head. The aroma is very floral with a hint of pine, citrus, and spice. The flavor is malty with a mellow bitter taste, but it finishes somewhat clean. Not perfect, but still very good. A mellow IPA.

Draught at The Cellar, Blacksburg VA, #390   Dark gold pour with decent head and great lacing. Citrus hop aroma and flavor. Good IPA, but pretty light. Can definitely have a few of these at Hammer Time at the Cellar!
