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.

12 oz. Pours a dark golden/light amber with medium carbonation and a long lasting off white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of mainly citrus with some malt, light pine, taste is sweet malt up front, quickly followed by citrus hops and a good bitter finish.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Pours a nice deep amber color. Aromas of hops, caramel, some herb, and a touch of nuttiness. Taste was well balanced to start then the hops almost kicked in. Medium grapefruit flavors with malts and a crisp dry finish.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Bottle: Pours a light orange/gold color, sticky white head and lots of lacing. The nose is very earthy and citrusy, but not near floral enough of an IPA for my liking. San Diego and Portland have ruined me for this style. The flavor is balanced though, piney and tangy. Not too bad, but the hop inflation of these days just doesn’t buy as much bread as it used to. Finishes balanced, good.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Clear metallic-orange body with a sudsy white head. Aroma of fresh cut grapefruit and orange plus some grass and earth. Juicy flavor and texture with moderately coarse bitterness. An easily quaffable IPA that’s not bad to have on hand.

jason (1681) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2006
Draft. Sweet hop aroma gave me a pleasant feeling (man i love hops!). But on taste it wasn’t as hoppy and bitterness then the aroma had me believe. The tatse is good but not as strong as i would like it to have been. A decent IPA. Cheers!

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 27, 2006
Bottle. Pours orange copper with off white head. Cirtrus hop and carmelized sugar aroma. There is some bread and tea like malt backbone behind the dominating spicy hop bitterness. One of the better east coast IPA’s.

kingfiogojr (78) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 26, 2006
Delicious IPA. Hoppy...but not too alcoholic, and it seemed like a good balance to me. If you didn’t want to go the full fledged route of Dogfishhead 90 minute or Nugget Nectar, this seems like the right beer for you. At 6.8, it’s slightly less than most IPAs, but delicious nonetheless.

webjedi (250) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - APR 1, 2006
Pours a true amber with a thin head. Scents heavy with hops. Definitely cloudy unfiltered pour. Light lacing on glass. Smooht with slight bitterness, with a light roast malt and severe hop overtones. Generally pleasant beer of this style. medium thinkness on the tongue (not very watery). (Bottle pour 4/1/2006)
