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.

Restrained aroma in a gold pour. Hop forward balance with light fruity body and sustained bitter finish. Nice - but nothing to write home about.

Darwenus (830) - Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2016
pours a slightly cloudy orange with average head and carbonation. The aroma is sweet. Tangerines, buttered popcorn, a little bit of yeast. The flavor backs the sweetness down just a little in favor of lemony hops and a dry finish.

77ships (7307) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 18, 2016
355 ml. bottle. 17/12/2015 bottled. Lightly hazy oily amber orange, little head. Nose is bitter harsh oily pine resin, low fruity qualities hops with substantial malt base, grainy caramel & dark bread malts. Taste is bitter herbal oily pine resin & flowers with herbal caramel & toffee malts, bitter oily tea, earl grey, light vanilla sweetness in the back. Meltier than you average IPA (it is not super fresh), tad aggressive but it suits it well. I definitely get the English connection / deScription. Tastes a bit like a mix between Brooklyn & Goose Island Goose IPA. Not your typical USA IPA que the English thing (it is more English inspired than anything classical or modern Britisch) but I rather like it. Between this, their Lager & magnificent Sorachi Ace, this brewery has a very solid standard line-up I get their popularity even if I didn’t care at all for Black Chocolate Stout.
