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.

Poured orangey amber with a modest white head. I was expecting a piney aroma but I got an earthy hop and malty aroma with a sour, medicinal touch and some honey sweetness. I didnt detect that much citrus. The mouthfeel is good, very english carbonation. Itís straw malty with the earthy hops and a tangy, puckering dry finish with the alcohol making itself known.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 7, 2008
Amber with a decent sized head. Lovely bitter fruity aroma. The flavour is pretty sweet, with a assertive citric biter balance. Full body and nice gentle carbonation. Pretty respectable straight-forward IPA.

Brooklyn East India Pale ale is a beautiful deep orange-red amber color with a very small and quickly disappearing head. The aroma is slightly hoppy and the flavor is very smooth and nicely malted. This is a very nice and refreshing beer. I would have rated this higher is the head were more fully developed. This is a common problem amongst the Brooklys Brewery offerings I have tried. This was a good choice for my 200th rating!

Iíll have to say it was a mistake drinking this beer immediately after Dogfish Head 90 Minute Imperial IPA. The pour looked terric and I decided to just take a big gulp but was qutie surprised how sour it tasted. I donít quite agree with the amount of hops - it seems like it could be a little bit more aromatic and bitter.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2008
Pours a thin darker orange with a creamy off-white head. Wonderful strong hop and English malt aroma with some mango/pineapple. Chewy malts and bitter grapefruit hop flavor. Lots and lots of resin and somewhat juicy. The English malts add some toastiness that sits oddly with the bitter hops, buttery. Medium bodied with fine sparkly carbonation and low stickiness. An interesting malty take on an IPA with what really seems like American hops.

12 oz bottle purchased at EZ Liquors. Pours a orange amber with an average size white head. Aroma did not have enough hop perscence for an IPA. Flavor had more bitterness then flavorful hoppiness. Blah.
