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.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2007 Draught at Tyler’s in Durham, NC. This is one of the best IPA’s I have ever tasted, smelled, or gazed upon. Clear orange color. Mederately thick white head that laces the glass. Smells and tastes like a bag of fresh hops. Very flowery. The hoppy flavor spreads along your tongue and palate right into the frontal lobes and limbic system of your brain. Every sip makes you happier and happier. The citrusy flavor is perfectly balanced with the bitterness. Great beer.

TomDecapolis (4427) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - SEP 16, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2006 On tap at the Northside. Pours a cloudy orange amber with an average size white head that laced. Aroma of orange and some pine, smelled nicely. Flavor of the same, maybe some more piney hops. Just had from a bottle and a pours a lighter golden with a hint of orange/amber. Head was large, fluffy and off white. Aroma was still orange with maybe some floral. Flavor citrus and piney. Bottled version was pretty in line with draft. My numbers actually came out exaclty the same which is kind of cool.

I was never a huge fan of this in the bottle but I enjoyed it on tap at Ortino’s Northside. Appears a light amber with a 1 finger head that lasts for over a minute. Some scattered lacing is collected on the glass. Smell is of florally hops with perhaps a touch of citrus, along with some herbal tea aromas. Taste is of an Brit IPA that’s been kicked up with a slight American influence. Nice maltiness complimenting the steadiness of subtle hops. Mouthfeel is decent. Decent carbonation entices the tastebuds with the bitters and maltiness.

Bottled. Nothing really impressed me about this IPA. I couldn’t taste the ’East’ in this East India PA.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2005
Smells of floral hops and is slightly metallic. Amber/copper color with white head. Strong hoppy flavor, grass, flowers, very bitter. It has this strange metal taste going down, not so good.

Braudog (5576) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - SEP 10, 2005
At the Brickskeller, Wash DC, 9/2/05: Very bright yellow with a copper tint. Vaguely developing head. Copper-metallic hoppiness here. Finishes with a perfumey flourish.

Orange appearance with a fairly thin head. Somewhat strong aroma, taste is strong in floral hops with a bitter aftertaste. Fairly light body, but decently bitter taste.

FoolishMortal (989) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Mellow orange amber with a small white head. Muted, earthen hop aromatics. Rich doughy malt character with undertones of floral hops, especially noticable in the finish. Some residual bitterness also in the fnish. Mouthfeel is medium.
