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.

This I.P.A. is amber in color and has the aroma of hops. It has a fruity sweetness, but a bitter after taste. As an I.P.A. it is good but just good.

pilsnerrogge (2538) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2006
(Bottle, 6.9 %) Amber coloured with a slight haze. Sweet, resiny hop aroma. Quite sweet flavour. One-dimensional hop bitterness. Drinkable, but a bit simple.

Montreal beer fest, 2006. This was one of my favorites this year, and almost all of the hoppy ones were exelent. Lovley pale copper color, perfectly clear, thin fizz, but it wasn’t the first pour on that bottle, so who knows. Aroma is tangy, piney and very bitter. Taste is prodominantly smooth bitterness, with a little cedar and a touch of nutty malt, but mostley bitter. Aftertaste is tangy, bitter and finishes with a slightly sweet orange zest touch. Mouthfeel was silky, with a dry end. Great beer. Cheers

Light amber color, large head. Has a very sweet taste, kind of strange for an IPA. Has more hop aroma than taste. Also has the signature Brooklyn after taste. Not a bad beer but not too great of an IPA.

fbennett (293) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Poured a rusty orange leaving a thick frothy white head that leaves a lace that is sticky and frothy. The smell is honey, spices, hop citrus with a strange nutty background. The taste starts with a bitter bite followed by a citrus rind bitterness that helps balance out the malty caramel flavors found within. The finish again takes you to a grapefruit background but is kind of watery and lacking that super sharp hop bitterness but is typical of an English style pale ale.

Dedollewaitor (14113) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2007 Pale yellow with white head. Citrus and flowery aroma = sweet taste - malts. Bitter finish. easy drinkable and very decent.

Yep, its a rather strong IPA. Strong in flavor insead of strong in hops. A good flavor but not my type of IPA at all.
