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.

EIPA is delicious. 12 ounce bottle from Glenville beverage. I loved this one. I was sceptical at first. I guess I always am when I try a new beer. dark brown in color, off white head. A little sweet but not too much. The malts are nice. Hops wee wonderful, present, but not overwhelming. I WILL get this one again.

After taking off the cap and begining to pour I was overwhelmed by the strong hoppy smell. The first taste showed how much hops were present. It has a good head and a strong character.

Pours a nice orange color with a lot of head. Aroma of hops and some citrus hint. Flavor has hint of nuts to it and slightly smoky.

Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Lots of hop, and it seems more resin than citrus. Light amber color with a flattened white head. Medium body with very mild carbonation. Flavor is well balanced between malt and hop. Not too strong. Just right. The hop seems to finish a bit floral. A delightful brew.

Nice India Pale Ale... The smell was strong of hops - the appearance similar to all IPAís but with a nice white head (half inch maybe). Overall a great beer.

clear amber color, quickly dissipating white head. aroma of orange, grapefruit; hops and citrus. i caught a mild citrus flavor, but not much more. too mild to be recommended as an ipa. kinda water mouth feel. not much happening here.

Orange. Fine lasting head. Aroma: Floral hoppy, malty-sweet. Great. Taste: Sweet and nicely hoppy, reisin. Britain meets American IPA - good match - and good value for money (itís quite cheam in Denmark)

Brooklyn East Indian Pale Ale ABV: 6.8% IBU: Volume: 12 fl oz Glass: Tapered 16oz Purchased at: Sherwood Liquors Consumed on: Wednesday, February 27th, 2008 first impression: Thick head calms down quickly to a thin foamy cover. The color is rich and varied and has subtle golden variations within a deep red hue. The hops are very present, and the carbonation is very active. Lace hangs nicely to the glass. The color is very nice. Aroma is mindful of a clean, wet brick walk. Lingering attention is in the upper back roof of the mouth. Aroma/Olfactory: Malt is creamy, flexible, and exquisite. Just a hint of nuttiness. Hops are grassy, citrusy, and very nice. Yeast/Bacteria is of a brick or basement aroma, but not bad at all. Reminds one of autumn. Raisins, soy and smoke, with impressions of a field after the rain. Visuals/Appearance: Color one of the most beautiful beers I know of despite a rather lame head. Liquid is quite clear, and actively carbonated Head is minimal but lace hangs if thinly for the duration, just slightly off white. The head is a downer, but minimal points off. Taste/Flavor: Lightly sweet, and ends with a rich, thorough bite. Slightly sour by design, and bitter is its most welcome aspect. Palate/Tactile: Body/Mouthfeel is full and luxurious - like a real hot chocolate in texture, but not in flavor at all. Texture is creamy with a finishing bite. Carbonation is lively and plays off the color nicely. Finish is thankfully long and bitter. Overall, a very nice exemplar of an IPA - slightly sour, very bitter, biting, beautiful. Stands up to spicy foods, delicious on its own. Easily available, affordable and one of my favorite beers to enjoy.

Liked. A fairly laid back IPA, the hops are nice and pungent, very floral and piney, but I would have liked more of them. Iíve had APAís with more hops than this guy, and while that doesnít mean this beer is bad by any means, when youíre going into a beer thinking itís going to have some reckoning hops, itís a bit of a disappointment when they arenít slamming youíre palate. A nice lighter IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2008 Very hoppy aroma on pour into a pilsner from a bottle. The smell also is of pine and bit on the palate as well. A clean, crisp beer but a bit watery. A solid IPA with another consistant flavor from Brooklyn.
