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.

Pinball (11932) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2008
a bit of a sour aroma (unexpected). thankfully it didnít come back in the flavor. Looks great, good taste too, although everything is a bit damped down compared to the best mircobrew ipaís iíve encountered. Great balance between sweet and bitter, a bit on the bitter end of the scale, which i like. Alc. totally hidden. Great brew, but the aroma draws down bigtime.

Bottle shared by The_Captain. Thanks Mark. Pours amber-orange with a creamy white head. Smells of citrus and pine. Sweet earthy pine flavor with a bit of citrus. Nice but a tad too sweet for an IPA.

Aroma is slight citrus. Hoppy dryness in the taste but the taste does not equal the feel. Flavor is good. A decent IPA.

Haslinger (909) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Bottle from the Party Pack. I like this one the best. I thought it was a very good IPA tasty but I thought the hops were a bit weak. Would buy again

biggmike (480) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - JUN 9, 2008
Poured a nice reddish/golden color with generous white head. Aroma is citrusy piney and floral. Flavor is pretty much the same. Hops dominate but this is not the bitterest of IPAís. I could have used more hops, but it was a well-balanced and pleasing representation of the style. Nice beer.

craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2008
sample on 6/5/08, rating from notes. pours a deep golden with white head. brilliant hop character and aroma. Garrett Oliver can really brew... especially in the English style. the citrus hops take control for the most part... a solid clean IPA.

kieleszd (83) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2008
Great hop character followed by citrus. Evenly balanced, alcohol is disguised. Overall on the light side for an IPA it complemented an order of nan and Bhun very effectively.

Geuzelambix (243) - KÝbenhavn, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2008
Nice summery beer with an acidic feeling and clear bitterness. I didnít serve it justice by drinking it out of the bottle, but it was nevertheless a pleasure - a tad oily in the afterpalate.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Bottle. Pours an amber body with off white head. Aroma is hoppy; pine, citrus, green earthy. Flavor is that very hoppy, dunno the ibus on this but its got a big bitter finish. Decent.

NDbeerdrinker (166) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Bottle Nice reddish gold color with think head on pour. You can smell the hops in this beer with a little bit of citrus. Taste has hoppiness and a hint of pine. Some sweetness to the beer and very drinkable. Decent ABV percentage compared to the other Brooklyn beers, but it is not overpowering. Nice beer.
