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.

Pours a amber colour with a small head. Nice bitter finish with citrus notes. Despite its lower raing , I enjoye this better than the Dog Fish 60 min.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2007
12 oz bottle. Light amber color. Fruity marmelade aroma with pepper, citrus, pineapple and orange. Flavor of exotic fruits with enough malt backbone. Some sharpness in the palate.

Pours a lean transparent copper without any texture. The head is thin and offwhite. The aroma has an initially sweet bubblegum aroma and little else. Very subdued hop aroma. This follows through into the flavor. There is some of a hop bite, a slight sweetness, but lacks the hop of most IPA’s. The palate and finish were both average.

StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2007 355ml bottle - pours deep golden/orange with a very small white head. Aroma is in the floral "west coast" character, but with a strong malt background. Almost smells like a sort of subdued American barley wine. Flavour is like a flip of the aroma - some citrusy hops off the top followed by a sweet English malt middle which then gives way to a medium bitter hoppy finish. Nice stuff, and much more English in overall character than your typical American IPA. Well made, nicely balanced ale.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2007
12 oz bottle - pours clear deep gold, with a small white head. Aroma mainly of west-coast hops at first, but have a few more sniffs around and you’ll get quite a bit of malt backbone in there too. Flavour is very nice, if somewhat simple (not in any way a bad thing). Starts off with very citrusy/almost blood orange tasting hops, then transitions into a medium bitterness and finishes smooth and malty. Three easy steps. Bit of alcohol in there too, but not gross. I found this one to be maltier than most IPAs I’ve tried. Nice. Note - the bottle I drank had a best before date of Mar. 07, which is now, so it may have mellowed since fresh bottling. Whatever, it’s very good.

Slight pale yellow with small white head. Got some peach, orange lemon peel and hops. Quit fresh and nice smooth bitterness.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Poured from bottle, Golden orange in color...Smelled GREAT...Reminded me of Lipton Lemon Flavored Ice tea! Very citrusy...I am just not real in to IPA’s yet, so it was a bit too bitter for me.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2007
I’m a fan of this one. Sweet and hoppy. Not heavy on the bitters like a lot of IPA’s tend to be. I guess it all comes down to the fact that the beer favors malts. I do wonder in spite of the milder hops how it would travel to india.. but that can be pondered at a later time. I’m too busy enjoying my beer.

Very Enjoyable bra. Hoppier than the reviews I read, nice "backbone" of malty goodness. One of brooklyn’s best.

Mid-sized, white head, gold body. Citrus, hoppy aroma. Dry citrus, hop flavor with apple and some grape undertones. Good, solid mouth feel.
