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.

12 oz. Bottle: pours a amber dark gold with an off-white head, malt sweet, flower and some pine scents, caramel fragrances, sweet, malt and hop citrus flavors, taste of some toasted malt, hop bite with a flavor of grapefruit, faint fruit flavor, not a lot of pine scents or taste like the other IPAs I have had, malt sweetness is balanced pretty well with bitterness, hop bitterness persists into the finish, this brew falls along the lines of a English IPA recipe.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2007
Great example of an IPA! Nothing outstanding about this beer but still very good. It poured a light copper color with a very minimal white head. I love the smell of this beer. The flavor contains all the usual IPA suspects: nice hop profile, pine, grapefruit. This beer was much better than I expected it to be.

obguthr (4589) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Hoppy aroma. Dingy copper color, medium head, good lacing Well hopped ringed with vanilla. Finish is quality hops, but lingers a bit too long. Wow!

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2007
The aroma is full of hops with light pine, citrus and heavier floral notes and some caramel malt accents. The body is a clear copper/orange and holds a diminishing off white head. Nicely hoppy and bitter with an ample malt base that leans toward caramel. The hops are citrus, pine, floral and I get some light plae white fruit notes toward the finish. The finish is quite bitter, but the body is light and quaffable, something I prefer tot he many thick IPA’s coming out these days.

wingman333 (333) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2007
Bottle...crisp, well-hopped, velvety IPA. Apple notes prevail. A little tastier than the mainstream IPA’s but not as brutal as the double IPA varieties. A "hoppy medium," to be exact. I like all the Brokklyn products and this one is no exception.

morrdt (715) - Dirty Mo’, North Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2007
Bottle from Total Wine in Huntersville NC. This beer struck all the usual cords when drinking an IPA. I was rather satisfied with this beer and would drink this beer again in the future. Nothing makes this beer stand out among other IPAs, but it is a nice one to enjoy on a summer day.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours amber/golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, spices, and sweet malts. The flavor is citrus, floral, sweet, with a moderate bitter finish.

BREWMUSKCLES (2379) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 21, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2007 this beer has a very nice hop tingle on the tongue. it has a greater malt base than grapefruit hop taste. it is bitter and this bitter tang lasts. that was welcome. a woody bitter tang with the grapefruit flavor a bit in the back. good carbonation. as you drink many pale ales you will like this one more.
