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.

PapaVillum (566) - Valby, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2015
355 ml/35,5 cl, flaske, 6,9 % ABV, købt i SuperBest på Gunnar Nu Hansens Plads på Østerbro, 14. januar 2015. Sirupsfarvet og filtreret engelsk-inspireret IPA med ungefär 3 cm hvid skumtop, som svinder til gardiner og overflade. Frugtrig aroma henad appelsin og citron. Noter af humle. I denne flaske er der dog også en ret metallisk duft/indtryk. Ganske let drikkelig IPA med lidt sød indledning. Generelt mere sød end øvrige IPA'er. Smagsnuancerne indeholder let sødme og let til medium bitterhed, men intet surt eller salt. Karbonering på et medium niveau, medium krop og olieret konsistens. Eftersmagen er let bitter og en smule sød og ikke afbrudt og kort som andre, men middel lang. Jeg fristes af ordene "begynder"-IPA, men det betyder ikke, at den er dårlig. Udmærket håndværk.

venom666 (465) - Elche, SPAIN - JAN 14, 2015
Clear amber color with medium white head. Aroma is citrusy, with a marked malty/resiny background, with also caramel and grapefruit. Light to medium body. Taste has some grapefruity and piney character, but again has a strong resiny and malty presence. Regular IPA, maybe a bit sweet in my opinion, but is good though.

Moolesen (271) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle 35,5cl. Am er/orand with a small off white head. Surprisingly was that this has not an intense hoppy flavour as I would have expected, but a subtle one with some malt as well, not very strong. Medium rich (read well malted) and quite a bit of bitter hop. Nice long bitter finish. Not the exotic fruit of flower style, but pure bitterness. I can i agine that this is not everyones friend, bht if you are into pure bitter beer as it originally was meant to be, then this is the one. I like it a lot

procraste (50) - FRANCE - JAN 11, 2015
ambrée claire sans mousse + nez houbloné + amertume sèche et pointue en bouche + gaz suffisant + l’amer est bien dosé ... Pas transcendant mais agréable avec des amis, un dimanche ensoleillé d’hiver ... A gouter à nouveau donc ...

CacheManyHose (291) - HONG KONG - JAN 9, 2015
From Wellcome. Clear honey-amber with thin white sudsy head and some spotty lacing. Smells of sweet malt, honey, light apple juice and grassy hop. Tastes of lightly resinous hop, malt, honey, some corn. Surprisingly sweet and malty for an IPA. Very solid for a HKD $16 beer.

HKdIPA (348) - HONG KONG - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle from Wellcome at home. Slightly hazy orange copper pour. Aroma is apple juice hops, maltiness, a bit floral, nice. Taste is smooth - bitter but balanced by lots of malts. Tastes a bit like apple juice in its rich flavor. Heavy maltiness - maybe too much. Good flavor though. And great for the price at Wellcome (~HK$16).

spartakbarnsley (64) - St Petersburg, RUSSIA - JAN 8, 2015
On tap at the brewery itself. Pours slightly red with a fluffy head. Overwhelming aroma of skunk (in a good way!), so that’ll be the cascade hops. Spicy, hoppy and moreish. A great example of the style, and as fresh as can be as it was drunk at the Brooklyn Brewery itself!

mikkellund42 (610) - DENMARK - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear amber with medium white head. Aroma is caramel, lemon, butterscotch, raspberry yoghurt and hints of pine wood. Taste is medium to very bitter, medium sweet and light acidic. Body is oily with light sparkling carbonation. Finish is long and medium to very bitter with notes of lemon, bitter grapefruit, bay leaves, thyme, biscuits and butterscotch. Nice balance.

twindadplus2 (619) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Can, sampled at home. Orange amber color with a light tan. pillowy head. Floral, fruity hop aroma. Flavor of resiny hops up front and sweet toffee malt. Medium to full bodied on the palate with a creamy feel on the palate. A really good IPA.
