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.

No citrusy elements here, that's for sure. Earthy hops and slightly sweet malt (forget the caramel though, the sweetness here seems like...sugar!). There's a good bit of electric, metallic flavors like touching the two terminals of a nine volt with your tongue. Yum!

cherr (162) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2003
I had this beer from a bottle. It has a nice dark amber color. It seems a bit over-carbonated. It tastes very heavy of alcohol. The flavors don't seem to be well balanced to me.

RichardGretton (4220) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2003
Dark amber looking lager like beer, with a great sherbert like aroma. Very fizzy drink with a bitter dry finish. A great beer, perfect for a refreshing drink.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 9, 2003
Orangeish color, nice head. Sweet hoppy aroma. Good hop character, very slight citrus notes. Not bad, but a little bland for an IPA

raymow (791) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2003
Nice reddish color and hoppy aroma. Definitely drinkable, although it starts out a lot better than it finishes.

omhper (19187) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2003
Bottled. Amber coloured. Sweet and resiny. Hard and clean with some citrus. One dimensional with overly resiny bitter finish. A well lacquered bottle of nothing. Was it really this empty some years ago?

larsniclas (5520) - Billdal, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2003
Bottled. Sampled at Stockholm Beer Festival 2003. Amber. Aroma of perfume, citrus and elder/passionfruit.. Fresh and bitter citric flavour.

OldGrowth (2590) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 28, 2003
Bottle: Fair nose, tea & citrus(orange). Clear orange color. Ok head that disappeared quickly. Nice balance of flavor. Toasted malts with sweet & bitter hop mix. Kinda sticky sweet. A lite bitter crisp finish. Not bad, very drinkable. Remember a funny taste the previous time I had it. This bottle was a month past best by date what ever thats worth.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2004 Bottled. Sampled at Stockholm Beer Festival Golden. Slight citrus and elder aroma. Chocolatey malt notes. Elder background in the flavour with a sugary, smokey finish. A lively IPA.
