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.

Bottle from utobeer via cgarvieuk. Aroma is dominated by toffee malts, peppery, citrus and grassy hops balancing. Taste is similar very pluckering mouthfeel, the after taste actually feels like youíve had too much pepper in your soup. A nice ipa, not totally american or totally english, but a balance of the two.

DialSquare (3781) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2007
bottle from total wine & more tampa: warm golden color with medium head that dissipated quickly. caramel and floral smell. citrus hops very little malt on the taste. slightly earthy then a bitter finish. not your typical ipa, but good.

This beer pours a nice thick head with a strong hoppy aroma and some hints of carmel malt. The color is cloudy amber and orange. As you drink the beer is very hoppy and bitter. the palate duration is very long leaving the nice hoppy coating with carmel malt along the sides of your mouth.

Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Too flowery hop for me. But after getting that past my palate it turns into a solid IPA offering. Huge flower notes in the aroma and on the buds. Descent caramely malt notes balance it but its definitly a challenge for them to do.

Looks great in the glass. Nice thick white head, with heavy lacing. Aroma has some hop presence, definitely more malty than a west coast IPA. More hops in the aroma than the flavor, but itís a very pleasant balance.

Nice hoppy aroma with a little fruit. Flavor is hops but not too strong and well balanced with moderately sweet malt. Smooth, medium body, very easy to drink.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2008 single bottle. dark gold, small head. Happy, active fruit aroma. Nicely hopped, but not overly so. One of the most well-balanced IPAs Iíve come across

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Single from Total Wine. Nice IPA hop aroma enveloped in a malt aroma. Good citric and earthy hop IPA flavor, and a nice finishing bitterness. Definitely in the English character, and a pretty respectable brew with 6.8% abv. Quite a bit different from the multitude of American West Coast IPAís. Drinkable and enjoyable. Well above average, but a long way from world class.

Pours a deep gold in the glass with a thin white head. Aroma is grassy and a bit soapy. The flavor is much of the same. Overall Iím not very impressed, but I also had high expectations after liking the brooklyn lager so much

Kinz (3622) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2007
Sampled as part of BJCP training session as the representative English IPA. Pours a light amber with a decent head. Aroma of biscuit and caramel malts with a corresponding hop accent of earth and spice malts. Flavor matches. Nice.
