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.

Very malt top-heavy...caramel/toffee sweetness dominating. Very subdued hop profile, especially for an American style IPA. Is this bottle mellowed too much or are these supposed to be played-out? I expected something mo’ better (and bitter) from these guys.

MrDick (347) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 18, 2006
Clearing out the fridge of random beers and found the EIPA. Pours a clear amber color with sweet hoppy aroma. Subdued malts - sweet and not too hoppy. An easy drinking IPA that’s not too challenging.

12oz pours a golden color with very little head but solid lacing. Nice floral and malty nose. The flavor is very subtle adn fragile. There is citrus hops very little malt and even a touch of mint. Very drinkable and pale IPA.

thornecb (4400) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 8, 2006
Pours light gold into a shaker. Quickly disipating head leaves slight lacing. Citrus, grass and juicyfruit notes. Thickand flat with an upfront sweet palate that changes to a long-lasting slightly bitter finish.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 7, 2006
Bottle: Bright golden, large off-white foamy head, spotty lacing, barely any carbonation.   Very pale hop nose, slight perfume.   Semi-sweet citrus rind to start, slightly earthy with either unripe wild berries or perfume on the tongue.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes a bit sweeter.   Lingering berry and perfume.   This an IPA?   Different...

drinkinjersey (10) - brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 6, 2006
pours a nice amber with a white head that disipates a bit quick. aroma is nice and hoppy but not over powering with a ruity and piney hint. tastes with the bite you’d except (and hope for from an IPA) with a refreshing bitterness that is very smooth and hoppy with a nice taste fo fruit. finishes dry with a nice hoppy aftertaste. one of my favorite IPAs and courtesy of my favorite local brewery.

decaturstevo (5015) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 2, 2006
This beer poured with an average creamy head with a decent lacing that finally petered away to nothing. The beer had a good initial and finishing bitterness that stays with you awhile. About what I would term as a little above average. To me it is a medium bodied somewhat dry texture. I really can’t find much bad to say about this beer. As I got closer to the bottom of the beer I changed my initial rating of 3.3 to the 3.5 and was tempted to go a little higher. A beer I think would be good company through an entire horseshoe tournament.
