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.

Pours a thin darker orange with a creamy off-white head. Wonderful strong hop and English malt aroma with some mango/pineapple. Chewy malts and bitter grapefruit hop flavor. Lots and lots of resin and somewhat juicy. The English malts add some toastiness that sits oddly with the bitter hops, buttery. Medium bodied with fine sparkly carbonation and low stickiness. An interesting malty take on an IPA with what really seems like American hops.
