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. Slightly sour peach/apple and moderate hops aroma. Reddish amber with small head. Slight sweet fruity flavor that is well blended with the hops finish - neither one comes out too strong. One of the best Brooklyn styles I’ve tried.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2007 Bottle. Pours a light amber/orange color, with a moderate head. Strong floral and citrus aroma. Taste is crisp, with grapefruit hops backed by some slightly sweet malt. Well-balanced and pretty good.

The IPAness jumps straight up your nose right out of the bottle, before you even think about pouring it in a glass. The color is a gorgeous reddish yellow amber, and the head is foamy and leaves great lacing on the side of the glass. The taste is crisp and hoppy, not too bitter, but bitter enough. Great IPA from a great Brewery.

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 12, 2006
Smells strongly of hoppy flowers, and the taste delivers, too. A great IPA, decievingly light and refreshing. Apricot, roses and spices.

Epor (13) - FINLAND - JAN 11, 2006
Bottle. Light copperish colour, not much head. Nice taste of hops, but I admit to have little experience with IPAs.

beerbill (3372) - Laurel, New York, USA - JAN 11, 2006
12 oz. bottle. Pours a bright copper with a rich foamy off-white head. Great fruity aroma. Initial flavor is lightly malty and citrus. Follow-through is a bit yeasty with a nice hop bitter finish. I realize there are some stronger IPA’s out there, but I enjoyed this offering from Brooklyn very much.

Pailhead (4742) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Bottle: Fruity aroma with apricots and peaches as well as a light citrus hop presence. Pours a bright transparent orange with a small off-white head. Apricot and caramel up front with some light citrus hops in the finish. There’s an apple flavor that seems a little out of place.

beerluvindave (194) - Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2006
overall, a decent effort on an IPA. very fresh hop bite, but not as dominant as some would like.

jercraigs (7782) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2005
Bottle. Orangey amber body, with a small white head. (3+) Mild orange citrus notes and hops. Flavour has a moderate bitterness, with very slight citrus and mild resinous character. Average palate. A pretty tame IPA but pleasantly quaffable. Thanks Jeff.

Gorbalev (2912) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2005
Bottle shared with Jerc. Orange, hardly any head. Some stale malt and hops in ok aroma. Medium tingly mouthfeel. More hops in taste than in aroma. Very orange citrus and tea-like. Pretty drinkable but ultimately ordinary.
