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.

Jolie petite découverte bien que je m'attendais à une bière plus houblonnée et plus amère pour une IPA. Jolis arômes d'agrumes et amertume contenue. Une bière qui s'est laissée boire sans aucun soucis.

gripweed57 (1272) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Brassy gold color topped by a frothy white head with clinging lace. Slight fruity, spicy malt aroma. Crisp bittersweet hops upfront. Slightly spicy with toasty malt and vanilla notes. Spicy bitter hops remain throughout and linger on the tongue. This is a nice IPA that has subtle character and grace. A very smooth and drinkable brew.

Cerveja com um gosto suave de malte e furtas cítricas, não muito densa. Pouca espuma mas muito fácil de beber. Boa.

chinchill (3777) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 15, 2016
12 oz bottle served in a pint glass (from notes). Pours a clear pale amber with a good off-white head that has very good retention. Aroma is the weak point of this otherwise very good beer. Earthy hops and medium malt are present, but so is a slight mustiness and too much in the way of effects of the modesty high ABV. These minor defects more or less disappear in the excellent taste. Not only is an excellent sweet/bitter balance (a bit sweeter than normal) achieved, but some nice citrus flavor comes through along with some hop earthiness. O - exceptionally enjoyable, and notably sweet and fruity version of an English IPA.

mrjez (313) - Osaka, JAPAN - FEB 13, 2016
L: pours an almost clear amber with small head. S: floral hops and some pine resin, caramel, malt, very pleasing. T: strong malt presence, more pine, nice mix of a hoppy and sweet finish. F: medium-bodied, hides the alcohol, slightly warming on the end with the malt. O: a delicious and easy-drinking east coast IPA. Easy on the bitter, strong on the balance and malt flourishes.

Sven1973 (154) - GERMANY - FEB 3, 2016
Gekauft im Lafayette, Berlin. Klassisches IPA, leider etwas zu fad und wässrig für meinen Geschmack. Sehr bitter.

Aroma resinoso, corpo medio, al palato biscotto, dolce, cereali, luppolatura resinosa e leggermente citrica, non molto persistente.

phfyysik (382) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 30, 2016
Didn’t expect so much. Nose is fulfilled with classical IPA notes - sweetness, hops, malt, citrus, fruits etc. Taste follows. Medium body, not too hard to drink, but not too easy as well. Good IPA!

Hopverdju (342) - BELGIUM - JAN 26, 2016
Goudblond bier met dun wit schuim. Geur: snoeperig, marshmallow, rozenwater. Smaak: zoetig – bitterig, mandarijn, geparfumeerde fruitigheid maar op een goede manier, Turks fruit! Dit is een zeer toegankelijke IPA of ééntje die voor velen drinkbaar bitter is. Afdronk: droog bitterig en terug rozenwater. Al bij al leuk.

Rotaldinho (140) - Paris, FRANCE - JAN 10, 2016
Pours with a small and dissipating head with some fine lacing.Well balanced mix of fruit and malt, not overpowering. The initial taste is also well balanced and the finish relatively short but not too bitter.
