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.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 23, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2006 On tap. Amber color. Citrusy, hoppy aroma, with strong malt and hop flavors, a bit yeasty like an EPA. Very smooth, with excellent lacing and creamy mouthfeel. Bottle. Completely different: yellow-brown color, like clear apple juice. Quite hoppy floral aroma. Flavors are very flowery and fruity, of hops, apples and pears, and some biscuity malts. Dangerously easy to drink.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 22, 2005
Buttery, bready aroma is laced with spicy and perfumy hop notes. The body is mildly bitter and real drinkable. Some sour citrus counterbalances the sweet toffee malts. The long, bitter finish is nice.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2005
Orange clear body with medium off-white dissipating head. Hoppy slight metallic aroma. Sweet hoppy, slight malt flavor. Medium palate that leave a little behind in the finish. Satisfying and refreshing. I could use another.

Floral hops dominate the aroma though there are hints of citrus. Flavor also leans toward floral though there are hints of sweet citrus, especially orange. A malt backbone is evident. Medium body. Timid carbonation that works just fine. Slight bitter aftertaste.

Bockyhorsey (2609) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 11, 2005
Sweet cirtus aroma. Copper color body with off white head. Flavor had a good blend of malts to add a decent sweet citrus feel for this beer. Some sweet malty hops left on palate good brew.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 26, 2005
Bottle. Small white, head, copper colored. Very hoppy aroma, grapefruit. Flavor is hoppy as hell, and has a grassy, citrus, pine aftertaste. Dry finish. Fairly good, even if typical of American style.

brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2005
Mild hop aroma with a cloudy orange appearance. The English malt here seems to balance this beer perfectly. This has got to be one of my favorite IPAs. I’ll take this over Hop Devil anyday.

thehinge (266) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 23, 2005
Bottle. Clear orange with an almost non-existent head....doesn’t lace much either. Aroma has hints of citrus. Taste is mildly hoppy throughout with a pleasant, sweet finish. I liked this a lot.
