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.

hotstuff (4303) - Indiana, USA - NOV 4, 2006
Bottle marked best before January 2007. Ivory small head that completely diminished, poor lacing, visible carbonation, transparent, and an orange hue. Nose was hoppy, caramel, piney, earthy, and citrus. Flavor malty, citrus, fruity, and a trifle bitter. Tingly mouthfeel. Light-medium body. Just so-so.

amber-orange color with large head upon pour, thins out considerably. Has a nice citrusy, pine aroma. Tastes just like it smells. Moderate carbonation and medium nodied. Had a slightly thin texture and finished bitter. I’m a fan.

lethe (177) - New York, USA - OCT 12, 2006
Transparent copper pour has piney, citrusey nose that is lively and effervescent. Palate is sticky to heavy and displays a depth to the brew. Flavor is more of the traditional IPA flavors with a definite resinous character. Nice respresentation of the style if uninspired.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2006 Pours golden orange with a mostly receding off-whtie head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, and pine. Taste is fruity, spicy hops, notes of grapefruit.. Mouthfeel is medium/heavy bodied with lush carbonation. Pretty good.

snowden719 (130) - USA - OCT 2, 2006
Pours dark orange with a medium to thin white head. Aroma is citrus, bit of malt, bit of pine. Citrus aroma is decently complex. Taste is a bit fruity, nice hops balance inthe finish. Malt is a underdone in the front, but it has a nice bitterness to it. Bit of a boring IPA, could use more malt flavor, maybe a bit bigger hop taste.
