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.

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. :-(

Clear dark gold. Thin head. Subdued sweet hop aroma. Ths bottle followed a Stone IPA. The hops are more integrated in the beer but lighter. The malt is lighter as well. More of a session IPA. Finish is a tad light with a bit of a lemon touch.

well i got this two months over the drink by date so the taste may have been a little off. It had a prety sweet smell and i kinda sweet taste, but had a bit of a skunky aftertaste, maybe because of the drink by date being expired. despite this it was pretty good.

Very light coloured brew and a very light taste too. Fruity, sweet taste with a litlle bitter finish. Nice palate. Refreshing.

Deliciously hopped, full bodied IPA with aromatic notes of pineapple and flowers; nice fruity sweetness initially, wih a slightly medicinal, dry finish. Nice one.

Bottle. Pours nice and golden with a small, off-white head. Aroma is a nice dry hops-one but with an occasional slight whiff of that cheesy smell that comes when the hops have been lying around too long. Not too disturbing, though. Flavour is sweetish with dry hops, but could do with more in my opinion, although the bitterness increases as it warms. Alcohol. Apple notes in the finish, which I kinda like. Quite nice, really.

Bottle. Great bitterness and lots of palate. Quite small head. Orange color. Brooklyn Brewery never disappoints me.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2005 IPA, where? Pretty weak, good beginner beer to introduce your friends to what a "hop" tastes like. Good amount of alcohol too.

thx to either shag, ice or heemer for this one... This is a nice English style IPA, a nice change from the west coast ones I usually drink. This would make a great session brew, mildly hoppy & smooth
