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.

12oz bottle as a bonus in a trade with Degarth! - Thanks Joe! - Pours amber slightly cloudy with a short white head. Aroma is straight up hops. Floral, grapefruit and pine can all be found.. Flavor is a little more balanced with notes of caramel coming through but still dominated by the citrus and floral hops. Palate is somewhat resinous and pretty drinkable. Enjoyable.

Pours copper with a thin white head. Smells of citrus and pine. Taste is citrussy with a nice piney bite. Finish is a slightly perfumy wildflower combination.

Bottle. Colonies of head. Salty citrus aroma. Grapefruit barely sweet, mostly bitter, fresh, opens your senses and nose. Nice palate on the finish, dry, tasteful, leaves you salivating for a little more.

Iím a big fan of PAís and often think IPAís are sometimes a bit overboard in terms of what I like in a beer. That said - I love this IPA. Not too overbearing yet still gives a far more satisfying hop fix than a standard PA. This IPA is so light and crisp it will sneak up and bite yoou if youíre not careful. Seeing as how my corner grocer now carries this puppy in itís "specialty beer" section for 6.99 a 6 pack I think Iíve found my new weekend remedy. Check this beer out if youíre an APA fan whoís ready for a slightly bolder flavor experience but not ready to go overboard.

shrubber85 (8994) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 21, 2006
Bottle. Slightly sour peach/apple and moderate hops aroma. Reddish amber with small head. Slight sweet fruity flavor that is well blended with the hops finish - neither one comes out too strong. One of the best Brooklyn styles Iíve tried.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2007 Bottle. Pours a light amber/orange color, with a moderate head. Strong floral and citrus aroma. Taste is crisp, with grapefruit hops backed by some slightly sweet malt. Well-balanced and pretty good.

AdamSkillin (376) - High Bridge, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2006
The IPAness jumps straight up your nose right out of the bottle, before you even think about pouring it in a glass. The color is a gorgeous reddish yellow amber, and the head is foamy and leaves great lacing on the side of the glass. The taste is crisp and hoppy, not too bitter, but bitter enough. Great IPA from a great Brewery.

KnutAlbert (6377) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 12, 2006
Smells strongly of hoppy flowers, and the taste delivers, too. A great IPA, decievingly light and refreshing. Apricot, roses and spices.

Epor (13) - FINLAND - JAN 11, 2006
Bottle. Light copperish colour, not much head. Nice taste of hops, but I admit to have little experience with IPAs.

beerbill (3567) - Laurel, New York, USA - JAN 11, 2006
12 oz. bottle. Pours a bright copper with a rich foamy off-white head. Great fruity aroma. Initial flavor is lightly malty and citrus. Follow-through is a bit yeasty with a nice hop bitter finish. I realize there are some stronger IPAís out there, but I enjoyed this offering from Brooklyn very much.
