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. Poured a golden amber color, with a white, creamy head that was slow to dissipate, and left a ring and quite a bit of lace. Aroma was quite hoppy, and sweet, with fruity scents. Medium body, with smooth, yet heavy hop flavor. Sweet, with mild carbonation - not harsh, and slight spice and pine accents. Dry bitter finish. Pleasing to the palate. Not as strong as other IPAs, but I give that as a compliment.

Tmoney99 (12054) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2006
Bottle. Poured deep amber with an average white head that diminished slowly. Heavy hoppy citrus aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Good crisp hoppy flavor with a solid bitter finish of long duration. Good pleasing bitter brew.

Stunning. Very hoppy and strong in taste. Last long on the tongue. Beautiful amber colour with an off-white head. Taste is slightly fruity and has a nice finish.

Pours amber with a white disappearing head. Very hoppy/fruity aromas of eldeberryflower. Mellow dry finish. Very nice but lacks a bit of edge... mainstream IPA.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2006
Copper. Small tan head. Aroma of resinous, piney hops, sweetness, and strong supporting malt. Same flavors but the hops pick up some crisp spiciness as well. Medium, balanced body. Very good IPA.

TheBeerNinja (137) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 7, 2006
Pours a very clear ruby amber with a sticky off-white head. Nose is juicy floral hops with some clean malty sweetness. Flavor is sweet with a well balanced bitterness, thick hop flavor adds to mouthfeel. A nice beer.

Capa (2316) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - FEB 3, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2008 Pours a nice orange with a nice head that diminishes quickly. Aroma is sweet. Citrus also hits the nose along with hops. Flavor is hops with citrus and almost seems like some apple. An interesting IPA. I think ill have to have a couple more before i decide on this one.

Citrus aroma and a good white head. Good taste and great finish. Not the best IPA but pretty darn good.

A pleasent citrusy aroma and malty sweetness greet the nose. The color is a golden amber with a nice white head. A slight sweetness is present at first but the hops quickly come through and the bitterness lingers on the palate.
