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.

Ambe rcolour with small white head. Nice aroma of malt, hops, aroma hops and spices. Malty taste with notes of citrus and alcohol that ends up with a fine bitterness. Nice IPA.

MillStreetMan (152) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2004
A very good IPA, however, not as dark, heavy or bitter as I personally like them. There are better ones out there, which have perhaps spoiled me in my appreciation for this beer. It is not bad, but just a bit disappointing for an IPA.

DarkElf (3028) - La Jolla, California, USA - DEC 20, 2004
(12 oz bottle, obtained in trade with Shadey, thanks Shane!) Not your typical IPA, but this may be on the lower half of the scale. For an IPA, it has a decidedly woody and earthy flavor, fairly malty, but with a flowery hops that is only mildly bitter. Medium in body. The honey lagerish aroma is a bit of a let down, also smelling a bit woody like the flavor and perhaps a bit musty. Dark golden color borders on light amber. Pours an ample amount of creamy off-white head that exhibits some pretty solid retention, and leaves some large patches of lace on the glass. Carbonation bubbles rising to the surface are quite plentiful and are certainly aiding the head retention. While this IPA tastes different from most on the market, it’s kind of odd, and not one I’d seek out again unless they update the recipe.

Christian (10779) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2009 Orange beer with short-lived head. Rich aroma of roses, grass, peach and strawberries. Hops-dominated bitter flavour with an almost tobacco’ish dryness on top of a little fruityness. Long lasting hop bitter aftertaste.

HopsformyHips (113) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - DEC 18, 2004
Thin whit head on a copper orange clear pour. Floral nose. Weak malt and bitterness in flavor. Water palate. I’d pass on it again. I always get excited about an IPA, but was let down by this one. Gimme a sierra nevada pale ale instead.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2004
Draft at N 3rd. Clear pale yellow ale, thin head, great lace. Great pine bouquet and flavor. Full crisp finish. On par with DFH 60.

roder60 (1280) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2004
Poured golden colored with some whitish head. Aroma very floral and hoppy, citrus notes as well. Taste is pretty good balance of malts and hops. Overall a pretty good beer.

kumite56 (469) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - DEC 12, 2004
This beer was rated as a blind taste test with no hints as to style or brewer. As such it was quickly obvious with it strong aroma of floral hops and its amber color that it was an ipa. The flavor was a little light in the malt backbone that I prefer in an IPA but has the requesite bitter finish although a little harsher than anticipated. All in al a decent IPA but lots of better ones are out there. Keep looking.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 9, 2004
Cloudy golden color with a miniscule white head. Strong herbacious hop aromas. Light - Medium bodied. Mild sweet malt flavors up-front. With herbacious hops and hints of spice quickly overwhelming the sweetness. Could be better balanced and it’s weak in the finish. Overall, it’s a quality beer.

Lubiere (9428) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2004
On tap at the Syracuse Holiday Brewfest Dec.04 2004. Hazy gold with a white head. Fresh hop flowers in aroma. Good clean hops, fresh and lightly astringent, very floral and fresh. Good bodied, with the floral hops marrying the hops.
