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.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2007 Pours dark copper. Funny bready sweet aroma. Floral and bitter flavour. Same funny aftertaste in an otherwise decent IPA.

8/5/05: Bottle.
Lemon, hop and slightly stale aroma. Orange-tan body with heavy almond lacing. Wow; more flavor than I expected. Hops, citrus (orange and lemon), and a little bit of alcohol to taste. Lingering bitter hop finish. Very slightly stale.

12 oz bottle at Pop the Cap fundraiser. Nice head atop an otherwise boring IPA. Even for an English IPA (not to be confused with its hoppier American IPA cousin), it’s okay but nothing special.

Belgo (154) - Køge, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2005
Bottle. Dark golden, slightly reddish with an off-white head. Aromas of litchi fruit, a touch of lime, flowers and fresh hay. Malty notes of grain as well. On the palate there is some sweetness from the caramel malts and then a massive hop presence. Fine bittering snap to finish off.

White head on a dark yellow body. Delivers all the promises from a real IPA, hops, bitterness an a bit citrusy too. Excellent with food.

I generally love IPAs (esp. Smuttynose, Southern Tier, Indica & Stone), but this brew was a real dud, IMHO. Had a soapy, oily, weird taste that I found unpleasant. Bought a case of this on a wing and prayer to take on an Adirondacks vacation last week, and ended up giving it away after choking down just one bottle. :-(

presario (4596) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2005
Clear dark gold. Thin head. Subdued sweet hop aroma. Ths bottle followed a Stone IPA. The hops are more integrated in the beer but lighter. The malt is lighter as well. More of a session IPA. Finish is a tad light with a bit of a lemon touch.

Nejhleader (1223) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2005
well i got this two months over the drink by date so the taste may have been a little off. It had a prety sweet smell and i kinda sweet taste, but had a bit of a skunky aftertaste, maybe because of the drink by date being expired. despite this it was pretty good.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2005
Very light coloured brew and a very light taste too. Fruity, sweet taste with a litlle bitter finish. Nice palate. Refreshing.

Deliciously hopped, full bodied IPA with aromatic notes of pineapple and flowers; nice fruity sweetness initially, wih a slightly medicinal, dry finish. Nice one.
