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: APR 22, 2005 Very nice, inviting, fresh aroma and appearance. Good íhoppyí flavor and mouthfeel. medium body, lively texture. Bitter, semi-long finish. All in all, a very nice IPA!

Trappist (284) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 13, 2005
Not to bad of an I.P.A. I had this at a Master Brewing Worshop with the Master brewer, it is a good ale for a hot day and is quite hoppy, better I.P.Aís are out their but all in all not too bad.

jbrus (4991) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2005
Bottled. Very fruity aroma, apple, citrus, cascade hops. Amber color, beige head, very nice lace. Sweet, apple, citrus, bitter, very hoppy, very full, little sticky. The flavors remind me of a spring bock but with other hops and more full. Thanks Dalle.

oh6gdx (21326) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 4, 2005
Bottled. Dark golden colour with decent white head. Fruitish hoppy aroma. At first caramellish sweet flavour, but turns into a nice bitter hoppy finish. Also sweet citrus in the bitterish aftertaste. One of the pearls I had at HBF 2005.

Bottled (BB 08/2005)
Honey brown color, small off-white head. Cotton blank dunky nose: malty cheddar cheese aroma. Lightly hopped, not very interesting IPA.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 3, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2007 (Bottled) Hazy amber color with a small head and some lace. Flowery, lemony-grassy aroma with pine-resiny hops and sweetish toffee maltiness. Actually the flavor is not very sharply hoppy until the dry, very bitter finish. What bothers me a bit, though, is the straightforward feel. The flavor doesnít develop much from start to finish. Lemony and grassy with decent, but somehow hidden, grainy maltiness. Medium-bodied, dry and bitter palate with well-balanced carbonation. Iíve raised the score bit by bit, yet still this doesnít fight with the best IPAs out there. Needs more complexity. (Bottled, 04/2006, was 7-3-7-3-13=3.3) Hazy amber color with a small head. Very aromatic, american-hoppy aroma. Aromatic-hoppy toffee flavor with some burned sugar. Still pretty dry mouthfeel with smooth carbonation. Hoppy but quite harsh and straightforward IPA. (Bottled@HBF 2005, was 7-3-6-3-13=3.2) Deep golden color with a smallish head. Fruity and flowery aroma with a hint of alcohol. Aromatic-hoppy, woody flavor with - again - alcohol. Slicky, slightly alcoholic, wineous palate with low carbonation. A blend of IPA and barley wine. Brooklyn brews seem to have trouble hiding the ABV - in my mouth, at least.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Clear copper pour supporting a small off-white head and a small amount of lacing. Aromas of a classic English ale with grapefruit esters, hops and toasted Crystal Malt at the forefront. This ale is really not aggressively hoppy (or bitter). I occasionally had to remind myself that I was drinking an IPA as opposed to an ESB. The solid hop profile was secondary to the sweet and nutty influence of the English malts. Carbonation was low (another reason why this ale could pass for an ESB). Overall, itís a refreshing and tasty IPA but not one that Iíd likely seek out again.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 26, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2006 12 oz bottle, snifter. Enchanting bronzed orange hue with a firm and tacky off-white head that leaves good lacing. Powerful and zesty orange marmalade aroma keeps me sniffing down to the last bottle of my six pack. Deeply rich bready malts with hints of treacle bring balance to the orange and floral hops. The flavor begins decadently sweet and hoppy, crescendoing into a bright and spicy hop finish. Firm, full mouthfeel for the abv and a silky texture with sprightly carbonation makes this a winner in my book. I canít think of anything this beer does to deserve such average marks except being widely available. 12 oz bottle, shaker. Very nice hop forward aroma. So strong that I had to do a double take to realize that it was noble hops I was smelling. Marris otter is quickly apparent through itís distinctive cookie/bready aroma. Caramel is also very strong in the nose. Moderately sweet, moderately bitter flavor becomes a lightly sweet, lightly acidic, heavily bitter finish. Medium body, creamy/soft texture, average carbonation. The bottom line is: a very nice American-styled IPA making use of English ingredients. Could have used some more distinctive esters in the profile.

iam (369) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2005
Pours an amber colour with a thin head. Earthy malt and hop aroma. Nice malt taste with a good hop presence, both up front and lingering finish.

Hansk (9) - Fakse Ladeplads, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2005 does not count
This is a very good beer. Try it! Bitter/sweet a full body for a pale ale.
