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.

clear copper color with a white rocky head...sour aroma with some fruit....head disapated quickly with some lacing...fruity tasting with less bitter than I expected...more bitter in the finish...I like most of Brooklyns beers, but this is not an exeptional IPA..too sweet for me

From a 12 fl oz (US) bottle with an expiration date of Oct. ’07. Poured darker than I expected with a kind of bronze-copper tone. Very little head/lacing. Not an overpowering aroma but the flavor is extremely hoppy. Sort of felt creamy in my mouth. Give it a gold star!

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy gold with a egg-white head with nice lacing. Sweet & hoppy aroma - Goldings? Metallic taste - peppery hops & slight alcohol. Light honey sweetness in the malting with a lingering dry hoppy aftertaste. Very pleasant! Good carbonation, light in body but coats the throat well. Very good IPA.

Bottle. Nice head with ok duration. Color is amber. Aroma is mainly hops. Taste is malt and hops - lots of hops.

TheShat (131) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2007
Bottle pours a golden copper. head quickly dissapears. The aroma is of bitter hops and some malty fruit sweetness. The flavor is actually quite malty and rich. The bitterness does not hit you until the finish. There is a warm alcohol bite there at the end. Meh. Not very impressive.

Nephilium (1517) - Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Starts with citrus hop aromas, with an underlying candy sweetness. Clear amber with a thin white head. Flavor is interesting, a start of sweetness, then a jump to citrus bitters. It seems to be missing something, an almost hollow flavor. Very short finish, but still very drinkable. I’ll need to get a fresher bottle of this to taste to see if the age has effected it (Marked best before 04/07).

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Bottle @ Bar Americain in Manhattan. Transparent copper pour with a small white head. Nice mixture of citrusy hops and malt in the aroma and flavor. Not a stand-out, but a solid IPA

jlruthven (589) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Nothing to rave about, but better than the average. Pours dark orange, nice white head. Nose is slight orange, a touch of mango and duh! hops. Taste is the same, with the orange and hops coming through in full force. I’d drink a few of these at a time.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2009 Aroma is very hoppy, a little bit of citrus, combined with a nice caramel maltiness. The color is a nice clear copper, medium white head. Flavor is grapefruit, caramel, bread, common for the IPA style, but well put together. Finish is bitter, citrusy and a slight metal taste. Medium thickness, slifght oilyness. Decent IPA, defintely holds its own.
