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.

Clear orange beer with a huge frothy white head leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma has flowers and malts. Kinda smells like Brooklyn Lager. Taste is fruity, malty, woody and bitter with surprisingly some alcohol. Quite British taste. Finish is medium long and has a moderate amount of bitterness. Mouthfeel is thicker than medium and overall soft with some tickling carbonation. It’s OK but I prefer IPA’s of the new world style.

Golden colour with frothy white head. Aroma is very hoppy and citrusy. Flavour is citrusy and hoppy with a long bitter finish.

Reviewed from notes. Consumed July 3, 2012. The appearance has a golden orange body that leaves a small lumpy white one finger head that dies within twenty seconds. The body was transparent enough to see streamy carbonated bubbles rising. Minimal lacing was left. The smell has some malts through nice citrus/floral hops. The taste is bittersweet through the malts which were then followed by the citrus/floral hops. On the palate, it sits about a medium with some slight harshness on the tongue. It was slightly creamy and smooth in my mouth. Overall, I would say I would have this again.

Bottle from Alko. Poured amber in color with a thick white head. Aroma has citrus, malt, caramel and mild nutty notes. Flavor very similar, lots of citrusy notes, hops, caramel. Decent, tasty IPA, recognizable Brooklyn house flavor.

Jirin mitalikalja. Jaakon kanssa mukava saunaolut. Hyvä näin humalaiseksi. Uudelleenkin voi juoda.

On tap @ Nya Tröls in Malmö. Balanced and fruity with traditional (But still kinda toned-down) american hop-aromas.

bulldogops (1028) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Rating #974 - February 13, 2014 - $16.79 for 6 341ml Bottles from Coop. Aroma is grassy, lemon, pine, pepper. Clear golden pour with a fluffy white head, decent retention. Medium carbonation, mild alcohol warmth. Smooth mouthfeel, lots of grassy, spicy hops on the palate but very well balanced, citrusy sweetness of grapefruit meets a sharp dry-hop bitterness. Solid IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 Bonne IPA, très équilibré, pas du tout amer sur la fin Le houblon est pas mal, pas trop fruité

Sweet citrus aroma. Orange and a bit cloudy. Flat foam (OK for an english IPA). Sustainable bitterness (too long) and sour aftertaste. Not very spectacular.
