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.

belgis (242) - LATVIA - APR 5, 2015
Thin foam and weak lacing still nice color light amber. Light hop aroma that is not overdone but maybe compared to other IPAs a bit short. Balanced dry mouth feel. Medium bitterness that lasts. Bit heavy. Overall balance in its best!

domienS (201) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2015
Pours a clear copper blond beer with a medium white head. Smells hoppy, malty, some wet cardboard also. Tastes bitter. Leaves a bitter palate. mouth feel is medium and well saturated. Okay Beer. Guess it lost some of its value during the shipping.

Fashawn (335) - Montesarchio, ITALY - MAR 28, 2015
Veramente apprezzabile, sessionabile e perfetta all around beer, di quelle che ti lasciano soddisfatto. Caramello e frutta dolce, tipo mela, e finale citrico, non amarissimo ma presente. Facile e buonissima

The_Osprey (2757) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Mar 2015 - 35.5cl can, BB June 2015, 6.9%. Amber orange, slight haze, sparkling, big dense foamy off-white head, decent lacing. Aroma is juicy citrus hop, musty, metallic, earth. Body is medium, foamy, tingly carbonation. Taste is soft biscuit malts, resin, soft grapefruit and lemon, a little buttery, dry finish, softly bitter. Strong hop character. Piney hop but also a nice use of Goldings. Good.

From the pour, I went full barrel trying to develop a lush head, nothing happened. The head died and there was no aroma to be seen. When you actually get down to drinking it, *boom* that's a beer. Crisp carbonation and a lovely smooth bitterness comes across the palate. The mouth feel of this beer is what saves it. It could be (and perhaps is, under a better pour) a much better beer, I really like the Brooklyn guys, keep on brewing!

An easy drinking IPA without much punch. Certainly not bad...................

Pours a nice copper color with a decent head leaving nice lacing. Slight maltiness with strong citrus nose. Nice fresh hoppiness with citrus flavors, very smooth mouthfeel. Very good ipa.
