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.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2006
Bottle, best before March 2006. No confusing this for an American IPA, much more subdued and malty than most, perhaps because of the use of English hops and such, or perhaps I should have drank it sooner. Regardless, I found this to be a pretty average beer.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2006
35,5 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Nice hoppy aroma of citrus and some malt too. Great tasty flavour of fruit from the hops, ends up dry with some bitterness. Very nice balance between hops and malt, but ends up very dominated by the fine hops.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2006
Fizzy white over golden/copper with light stickiness. Biscuity aroma with lemon, green wood and sharp, milky notes. Very lemony flavor with a decent-enough malt backbone. Refreshingly bitter with hearty breadiness and light alcohol in the finish. Solid and sessionable.

If this had been brewed by an English company, it would undoubtedly be listed here as a Bitter rather than as an IPA. That’s not to say that I don’t like it. I do. But the light floral hop scents along with the sweet toffee aroma, the mild (by American standards) bitterness in the taste, nicely balancing the toffee malt flavors, and the gentle bitter finish, would disqualify it from being classified as an India Pale Ale.
This is one fine drink, definitely sessionable material.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2006
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.
