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.

mmargarucci (43) - Basel, SWITZERLAND - OCT 30, 2014
Flowery white wine aroma. A bit of a bad alcohol aftertaste but maybe that's just an old bottle in Europe. Overall a good solid but not great ipa.

ZodiacM (99) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2014
Amberkleurig, jelder bier, met een lichte schuimkraag. Geuren van hop, dennen, citrus. Smaken van hop, dennen, fruit (citrus/tropisch), specerijen. Licht bittere nasmaak, met een hint van dennen. Lekker smakende IPA, zoals ik ze graag in de zomer drink, als tegenhanger van het mij vervelende witbier.

Maakun (704) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle. Clear Amber with medium white head. Sweet malts, biscuits and some toast. Nice aromatic hops with lychee, pine wood, Christmas tree, and tropical fruits. Quite creamy feel with dry spicy finish. Lively carbonation. Decent enough ipa.

Ragnampiza (499) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - OCT 19, 2014
300 ml on tap in a random bar outside Rome. Dark golden yellow, pretty hazy, with a big, fluffy and persistent white head. Wonderful aroma, so fresh, clean and inviting. Definitely citrusy hop forward, resinous pine needles, some bubblegum as well. Proper herbal and grassy bitterness upfront, but then it’s slightly more sweet (esp. honey), sirupy and astringent than I’m used to. Moderately dry and slightly papery aftertaste. Average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. The taste is not on pare with the excellent nose, but it’s still a lovely beer overall.

Bottle 35.5cl. Appearance:Amber body with a 1 finger frothy beige head, leaving some nice lacing. Aroma; Toprical hops, pine and butterscotch Taste: Tropical hops, resin and butterscotch flowing into star fruit with anice bittnerness and a little bit of orange zest bitterness Aftertaste is star fruit. creamy mouthfeel, but a thin body ( although not watery), average carbonation. A nice little IPA espeically for summer, seeing it’s refreshingness.

Baalzevuv (12) - - OCT 19, 2014
Barwa ciemnozłota, piwo klarowne, piany praktycznie brak, nawet przy wymuszeniu. Liczne bąbelki wskazujące na spore wysycenie. Aromat typowy dla IPA, szczególnie przebijają w nim nuty ziołowe i chmielowe. Czuć świeżość, mimo faktu, iż piwo butelkowane było w lutym. No ale IPA może przecież trzymać bardzo długo, po to ją tak robili. W smaku bardzo lekkie, goryczka znaczna, nie zalegająca. Czuć zdecydowanie smak chmielu (czterech odmian), pod koniec przebija jakby miętowa świeżość.

blackisle (759) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle 35.5cl. Deep amber color, one finger frothy beige head, recedes slowly to a thin layer, light lacing; strong fruity nose, lime/lemon, citrus grass, apricot, pine, caramel, floral notes; medium bittersweet taste, citrus, star fruit, orange zest; medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation; smooth medium bitter finish, long lasting. Nice friendly IPA.
