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.

A pleasent citrusy aroma and malty sweetness greet the nose. The color is a golden amber with a nice white head. A slight sweetness is present at first but the hops quickly come through and the bitterness lingers on the palate.

Execellent IPA brewed with imported British malts, and American hops. Lots of big hop aromas, crisp malt flavors, and vibrant hop bitterness. East India Pale Ale pours to a beautiful, bright, deep golden color, with a thick and creamy white head, and a lively carbonation. The nose on this beer is excellent with lots of good citrus hop aromas. The palate is firm with good pale malt flavors, and a nice under tone of candy lemon peel. This beer finishes with more good pale malt flavors and fruit up front, then ends with a zesty, tangy, citrus hop bite that lingers. Well done IPA, a good aperitif beer, and a nice beer to match with fish and chips.

Color is a light orangish...very thin head. Hardly any aroma. This is a very sweet IPA that goes down easy. The finish is a bit too smooth, but nicely bitter. It’s pretty good, but doesn’t stand up with the slew of other IPAs.

12oz bottle as a bonus in a trade with Degarth! - Thanks Joe! - Pours amber slightly cloudy with a short white head. Aroma is straight up hops. Floral, grapefruit and pine can all be found.. Flavor is a little more balanced with notes of caramel coming through but still dominated by the citrus and floral hops. Palate is somewhat resinous and pretty drinkable. Enjoyable.

Pours copper with a thin white head. Smells of citrus and pine. Taste is citrussy with a nice piney bite. Finish is a slightly perfumy wildflower combination.

Bottle. Colonies of head. Salty citrus aroma. Grapefruit barely sweet, mostly bitter, fresh, opens your senses and nose. Nice palate on the finish, dry, tasteful, leaves you salivating for a little more.

I’m a big fan of PA’s and often think IPA’s are sometimes a bit overboard in terms of what I like in a beer. That said - I love this IPA. Not too overbearing yet still gives a far more satisfying hop fix than a standard PA. This IPA is so light and crisp it will sneak up and bite yoou if you’re not careful. Seeing as how my corner grocer now carries this puppy in it’s "specialty beer" section for 6.99 a 6 pack I think I’ve found my new weekend remedy. Check this beer out if you’re an APA fan who’s ready for a slightly bolder flavor experience but not ready to go overboard.

shrubber85 (7594) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 21, 2006
Bottle. Slightly sour peach/apple and moderate hops aroma. Reddish amber with small head. Slight sweet fruity flavor that is well blended with the hops finish - neither one comes out too strong. One of the best Brooklyn styles I’ve tried.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2007 Bottle. Pours a light amber/orange color, with a moderate head. Strong floral and citrus aroma. Taste is crisp, with grapefruit hops backed by some slightly sweet malt. Well-balanced and pretty good.

The IPAness jumps straight up your nose right out of the bottle, before you even think about pouring it in a glass. The color is a gorgeous reddish yellow amber, and the head is foamy and leaves great lacing on the side of the glass. The taste is crisp and hoppy, not too bitter, but bitter enough. Great IPA from a great Brewery.
