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.

cfranz (261) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 29, 2005
Poured orange with little to no head. Kind of a bready taste, light to medium hoppiness, metallic aftertaste. Overall a nice beer that I would get again.

puzzl (3237) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2005
PIss-orange with little head and little lacing. Aroma was of marinara sauce (??!). Nice full palate but flavor was very lacking. Bitterness was lingering and unpleasant, and I feel the flavor was forced to try and cover it. Rather dissappointing after the other Brooklyns were so tasty.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2005
12 oz bottle. Light amber colour, foamy white head. Aroma is of sweet crystal malt, honey, caramel and light fruit. Some light resiny and citrus hops. Flavour shows resin, sweet malts, biscuity, light toast and a touch of plum. Woody hop flavoured finish. A good brew, but there’s way too much crystal malt in here.

Stew41 (1662) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2005
Ultra clean, light bodied, aromatic style. Yet very intense flavour wise and obviously well made. Excellent sharp leafy hops keep the beer tight. Tails a little on the finish but otherwise impressive.

English style IPA that isn’t as bitter as the IPAs I’m used to, but was a nice break from the citrussy/piney American hops. Enjoyable, but I prefer the English hops as a vacation, rather than a residence.

anders37 (15526) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2005
Bottle. Deep golden colour. Has a nice fruity aroma of hops also hint of alcohol in the aroma. The taste is hoppy with hints of citrus. Has a bitter and warming aftertaste. A pretty good IPA.

brewrater (92) - akron, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2005
Alefest ’05 - Somewhat disappointing entry of this style. More thin and flat than our IPA’s - closer to a english bittter or pale ale.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 29, 2005
Orange/amber colour. Lovely fruity and refreshing aroma. Initial flavour is sweet from the classic English malts ending in a fine bitter finish.

stouby (3510) - Holbæk, DENMARK - APR 24, 2005
Bottle, at home. Yellow with white head, average size, almost disappearing. Virtually no lacings. Aroma of hops (flower and pine) og light of malt. Flavor light sweet and heavy bitter. Light to medium body. watery, soft carbonated.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear amber colour, nice creamy and quite stable head. Very bubbly carbonation. Pronounced bitterness but also aroma from the good quality hops used here. Also some underlying sweetness. Very classical and typical American IPA. And that’s no bad thing...
