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.

Bottle @ pub. Pours a cloudy amber with hoppy aroma. Unedged palate with a good bitter flavour with a bit of toffee. Sweet and dry finish.

on tap @ the tasting room @ Brooklyn Brewery. Decent hop flavor, medium citrus. Ok but I prefer American style IPA’s to English. Prefer the Blast! to this one

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 29, 2007
12oz bottle. Relatively clear yet sedimented. Orange amber hue. Tight ring of white head. Bright citrus grapefruit aromas with a touch of sweet cinnamon. Medium bodied with a crisp palate. Good citrus flavors . Mildly dry and slightly bitter. Lighter IPA. Good flavors, but no real bang.

jspruit (122) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 29, 2007
Bought this bottle in Denmark and brought it back to Ireland-ironically enough sometimes that is what I have to do to get an American beer! Overall I was impressed with this beer. Poured nice with good color, smelled great, tasted smooth but hoppy and went down easy and not too strong. I didnt detect too much of a citrus or floral taste at all, just a straightforward IPA. I would get another bottle if I have the chance again.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2007
At the brewery. Golden, very little head. Nice aroma of hops and citrus. Crisp hoppy flavor. A good beer, though I’d choose Brooklyn Blast over this one if I wanted a hop fix.

jrob21 (2928) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 22, 2007
On draft at the neighborhood joint down the street. Pale golden color is more reminiscient of a pilsner but the aromas and flavors come off like a mild pale ale. Decent beer but not overly unique. Would be a great hanging on the beach beer.

Pretty damn good beer. Drank it right after the pennant ale so the hop flavors hit me like a brick wall. Abundant hops, yet kinda sweet.

yespr (35128) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 18, 2007
35.5 cL bottle. Pours clear amber with little head. Aroma is a nice soft blend of aroma hops and caramel malts. Flavour is wellbalanced hops and malts, the hops don’t really take over in the flavour like in most IPAs, but is softly gliding into the malt notes. Ends in a dry and yet soft bitterness

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 12, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2011 Far stronger than I expected, this is a richer, in some ways maltier offering than many standard session IPAs. Fairly typical citrus aroma, but a hugely frothing mouthfeel with some yeasty characters distinguishes this one. Very fine everyday IPA.
