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.

SHared by martjoobolut, thanks! Clear orange beer, small off-white head. Nose is herbal hops, some malt, some sweetness. Flavor is sharp malts and sweetness with a firm hoppy finish. Fairly balanced, but the sharpness is distracting. Pretty drinkable though.

beeebon (222) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2014
Pours orangey amber in colour with a loose off white head. The smell instantly hit me as oranges and passion fruit, pine, slight herbal quality and a sweet smelling caramel malt there. Taste is medium to high sweet and medium dry bitterness. Taste reminded me of a sweet bitter marmalade. Very nice for the style and a little different from normal. Mouth feel is kind of sticky but nice. Definitely one to get again

Keg @ Trades Club, Hebden Bridge. Amber with a thick frothy head. Nicely hopped, not too much and there’s plenty of tropical fruits evident for it, none of which are citrus although the carbonation makes it feel a little active in the palate.

laakus (28) - Nossebro, - NOV 28, 2014
Lightly hoppy smell but most prominent is sweet malty aroma. Taste is somewhat sweet with a light bitter finsih from what I presume the english hops. Decent beer.

Iznogud (827) - CROATIA - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle, 355 ml from Vrutak, Zagreb. Pours amber with small head. Light fruit and hoppy, caramel malty. Was a bit of a letdown for me because I expected a hop punch characteristic for american IPAs. Ok, so it’s an EIPA, but not very exciting or memorable brew.

commonshawn (444) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle. Light copper with thick white head. Slightly floral hop aroma is strong. Drying hop mouthfeel. Alcohol is balanced with slightly fruity bitterness. Decent finish. A solid ipa.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - NOV 25, 2014
From tap at the Horeca Expo in Ghent. Deep and clear ’old gold’ colour under a somewhat loose (certainly for the style), yet stable, snow white head. Aroma obviously very hoppy (dry-hopping) and citrussy, grassy, rosewater, some caramel, pine needles, pineapple, peach, apple; taste of exotic fruits, flowery, perfumey, honeyish malt backbone, smooth, medium carbo, long peppery and citrussy hop finish, dry and sticky, pine resin. Well balanced and flawless.

Fisler (52) - GERMANY - NOV 25, 2014
Geruchlich leicht hopfig, kaum Frucht. Im Geschmack angenehm frisch, leicht, herb und im Abgang bitter. Die 6,9% kommen garnicht durch, was ich als Plus empfinde. Wirklich angenehm zu trinken. M.A. aber zu teuer. Gutes Alltagsbier, wenn auch nicht überragend.

BrewGoblin (462) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - NOV 23, 2014
A fine lil’ ditty from Brooklyn, bright copper stew capped by white foam. A healthy blasting of honey and caramel malts matched with spicy herbal and floral friends frolic t’wards your nasalway. The aroma precedes the the complimentary bittersweet taste quite well and a chewy body with a bit of prickle to the carbonation doesn’t hurt either. A nice sweet floral and tropical taste is left with a citrus sharpness balancing the act.

Hidden_Pooch (410) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
This beer looked good as it pours an amber with a massive frothy head, but in the aroma I noticed some cheese mixed with floral hops, and pine. Tasted of caramel, toffee, light pine, and light cheese as well. Maybe I got an infected one, but it was too cheesy. Had a light body with average carbonation.
