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. Nice driking beer, not overly hoppy with just a hint of sweetness in the finish

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - AUG 27, 2007
A highly drinkable, true to style, English IPA. Very earthy, not at all comparable to the APA’s of today. Still, nicely done.

Clear copper/golden with smaller head. Floral hops and caramel malts dominate the olfactory. The taste is a little subdued and malty with subtle hop bouquets emerging mid to late palate. A solid, drinkable IPA, but nothing extrordinary.

Bottle. Light and hoppy. Not much of a finish but a decent IPA for a cheap beer. Good session beer.

NJJereme (375) - Saint Petersburg, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2007
Pours a standard copper pale ale color with a light head. Not overly spicy. Mild hops flavor and mildly crisp on the palate. Overall, a good beer.

bdigital (658) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 20, 2007
Bubbly orange in color with a small white head. Not much retention on the lacing. Subtle malt and floral hop notes with a freshly squeezed orange juice and bread dough aroma. Pretty smooth with just enough carbonation. Malt domination over the hops which really threw me off. I was expecting a big hop character and didn’t get it. Slight piney hop-kick on the finish. Overall, a decent session brew.

A pretty lame IPA...not a bad ale, mind you, but wrongly named as IPA. The brewer is being rally shy about using enough hops to live up to the style. The original Ballantine IPA is still the one to beat, and no micro has even come close.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 14, 2007
Pours a hazy amber colour with a small off white head that disapated quickly. Aroma if sweet, fruity and citrus hops. Initial taste is hoppy, mild malts, and hints of pine. Finishing astrigent. No head retention.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2007
12 oz. bottle: Pours a clear copper color with a thin off white head that diminishes quickly to the perimeter of my glass. Aroma has a mild hoppiness with hints of a sweety fruitness. Taste has a balance of citrus, malts, and hops with a tangy bitter finish. Well balanced and the hops is not overpowering. Nicely done!

Goodgrief (1907) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - AUG 11, 2007
May 2005 - Poured nice copper color with medium sized head which dissipated rather quickly. Smelled fruity and hoppy. The taste...I like this one. For an IPA, the hop presence was very well balanced. Had a tangy edge to it and the alcohol taste was present, but in this case, was nice. Not being a big IPA guy, this is my kind of IPA.
