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.

Dainis (16) - Riga, LATVIA - FEB 14, 2015
Nice aroma of sweet malt. Good, bitter taste, with some sort of fresh sourness or may be it comes from crisp carbonation. Good mouthfeel, but aftertaste is quite short. Nice beer, but lacks some punch or individuality.

Orange colour, minimal white head. Caramel, grapefruit, resin aroma. Bitter taste, with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Hints of citrus and herbs in the aftertaste. Enjoyed it.

NikkTwist (1812) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Draft at Moriartys. Mostly clear dark orange gold pour with a lasting foamy head. Dark orange wheat. Feels more like a bright dark Oktoberfest. Not loving it though.

tbonde (47) - DENMARK - FEB 8, 2015
35,5 cl. bottle at home. A somewhat mainstream but very drinkable EIPA. The bottle let me down ... compared to my experience with the draught version lately (even despite the draught being served too cold). The draught seemed to have just a little extra all round. However this is in every way a very nicely balanced, professional brew, nice head, fine colour, good aroma and heavy hops well integrated. If you have a friend who is not into EIPA’s this would be a perfectly pleasing place to start.

Pours orange with short-lived white head, citric and herbal aroma. Tastes bitter but balanced with sweet malts. Pleasant, refreshing and good drinkability.

gift of the bartender of Sörmanufaktúra/Sörspecialista, Budapest - thank you very much for his generousity! darker golden colour, medium sized off-white head;aroma of resiny, slightly grapefruity notes; taste of a typical conservative IPA with resiny-piney notes, some not too intensive fruitiness, bread and caramel - correct balance between hops and malts; slightly spicy aftertaste; correct IPA
