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...crisp, well-hopped, velvety IPA. Apple notes prevail. A little tastier than the mainstream IPA’s but not as brutal as the double IPA varieties. A "hoppy medium," to be exact. I like all the Brokklyn products and this one is no exception.

morrdt (715) - Dirty Mo’, North Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2007
Bottle from Total Wine in Huntersville NC. This beer struck all the usual cords when drinking an IPA. I was rather satisfied with this beer and would drink this beer again in the future. Nothing makes this beer stand out among other IPAs, but it is a nice one to enjoy on a summer day.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours amber/golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, spices, and sweet malts. The flavor is citrus, floral, sweet, with a moderate bitter finish.

BREWMUSKCLES (2367) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 21, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2007 this beer has a very nice hop tingle on the tongue. it has a greater malt base than grapefruit hop taste. it is bitter and this bitter tang lasts. that was welcome. a woody bitter tang with the grapefruit flavor a bit in the back. good carbonation. as you drink many pale ales you will like this one more.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2007
Rated 8/4/06: Nicely balanced and somewhat mild for an IPA I like it and it really seems to work well. Aroma is a nice mellow floral hop scent, slightly bitter. Poured a nice light to medium copper with good lacing and a thin creamy head. The carbonation is amazingly strong. Good crisp feel with a smoothness that finishes clean and a little bitter. Flavor is malty with complimenting hops. The mild balance is a great change of pace from most IPA’s. A slightly different take on a popular style, I really like this one good if you want to enjoy a few.

caesar (5771) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2007
Clear golden color, short head. Aroma is bit floral, hoppy, pilsner malt. Clean bitter taste, bit crisp. Nothing spectacular.

stison42 (318) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Nice cloudy golden. Sweet hoppy aroma. Taste not as hoppy as the smell. Doughy, bitter taste. Pretty average. Nothing distinguishing about it. Mild.

jerohen (2062) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2007
Clear copper coloured, small head. Floral hoppy aroma, some fruit. Hoppy, easy to drink.

green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 18, 2007
Good aroma. Mouthfeel medium. Complex flavor profile, with nuts and light fruits. A bit of a soapyness that detracts. Finishes with very little bitterness. A decent, flavorful IPA.

skortila (4821) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2007
Aroma of slightly flowery hops. Clear, golden-copper coloured with thin, off-white head. Taste is bitter, sweet, hoppy, slightly citric. Easy goin’ beer.
