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.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2005
Pours a clear orange color with a thin white head that clings to the glass. Citrusy hop aromas are mouth watering to say the least. On top of that there is a little bit of a grassy scent. Fruity flavor with a decent amount of hops and a little bit of malt. Citrusy lemon finish to this fruity english-style IPA. An enjoyable session beer with a little extra kick.

ABUSEDGOAT (2318) - California, USA - AUG 23, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2008 Amber body. Aroma is English style (shock). Medium bodied, moderate bitterness, spicy hops. Not my preferred style.

zach8270 (3352) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2008 [draft at MacGregor’s - Henrietta, NY] Reddish-orange pour with a thin white head. Very floral aroma with hints of hops, pepper, spice and some malts. Flavor begins with a very floral hop taste that melds with a slightly sweet malt and yeast taste and a nice bitter hop finish.

euserphriendly (167) - Holland, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2005
good reddish/brown pour. Lightly carbonated as the style should be. The problem is that there is not enough hop flavor to rival the fruity esters of the yeast. Heavy fruit flavors take over as the beer makes its way to the back of the tongue.

turbothy (1071) - Bonn, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2007 Pours dark copper. Funny bready sweet aroma. Floral and bitter flavour. Same funny aftertaste in an otherwise decent IPA.

8/5/05: Bottle.
Lemon, hop and slightly stale aroma. Orange-tan body with heavy almond lacing. Wow; more flavor than I expected. Hops, citrus (orange and lemon), and a little bit of alcohol to taste. Lingering bitter hop finish. Very slightly stale.

tomhenderson (166) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 25, 2005
12 oz bottle at Pop the Cap fundraiser. Nice head atop an otherwise boring IPA. Even for an English IPA (not to be confused with its hoppier American IPA cousin), it’s okay but nothing special.

Belgo (154) - Køge, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2005
Bottle. Dark golden, slightly reddish with an off-white head. Aromas of litchi fruit, a touch of lime, flowers and fresh hay. Malty notes of grain as well. On the palate there is some sweetness from the caramel malts and then a massive hop presence. Fine bittering snap to finish off.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2005
White head on a dark yellow body. Delivers all the promises from a real IPA, hops, bitterness an a bit citrusy too. Excellent with food.

I generally love IPAs (esp. Smuttynose, Southern Tier, Indica & Stone), but this brew was a real dud, IMHO. Had a soapy, oily, weird taste that I found unpleasant. Bought a case of this on a wing and prayer to take on an Adirondacks vacation last week, and ended up giving it away after choking down just one bottle. :-(
