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.

yespr (29687) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 18, 2007
35.5 cL bottle. Pours clear amber with little head. Aroma is a nice soft blend of aroma hops and caramel malts. Flavour is wellbalanced hops and malts, the hops don’t really take over in the flavour like in most IPAs, but is softly gliding into the malt notes. Ends in a dry and yet soft bitterness

Ungstrup (28458) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2003
A dark orange beer with a fine head. The aroma is fruity and yeasty. The flavor is sharp, lightly sweet and nice bitter - very filling for an IPA

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear amber colour, nice creamy and quite stable head. Very bubbly carbonation. Pronounced bitterness but also aroma from the good quality hops used here. Also some underlying sweetness. Very classical and typical American IPA. And that’s no bad thing...

oh6gdx (20003) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 4, 2005
Bottled. Dark golden colour with decent white head. Fruitish hoppy aroma. At first caramellish sweet flavour, but turns into a nice bitter hoppy finish. Also sweet citrus in the bitterish aftertaste. One of the pearls I had at HBF 2005.

joergen (19665) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2004
Ambe rcolour with small white head. Nice aroma of malt, hops, aroma hops and spices. Malty taste with notes of citrus and alcohol that ends up with a fine bitterness. Nice IPA.

omhper (18969) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2003
Bottled. Amber coloured. Sweet and resiny. Hard and clean with some citrus. One dimensional with overly resiny bitter finish. A well lacquered bottle of nothing. Was it really this empty some years ago?

anders37 (15578) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2005
Bottle. Deep golden colour. Has a nice fruity aroma of hops also hint of alcohol in the aroma. The taste is hoppy with hints of citrus. Has a bitter and warming aftertaste. A pretty good IPA.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2004
Orange color; poor head. Strange vegetable aroma and flavor. (<font size=1>Sorry, I'm disturbed by Bov's mumbling, I can't tell more…</font>). Soap. Strange. Unpleasant.
A big thank to Jens (Ungstrup), Jacob (Lövenlund) and Rasmus (Nørrebro Bryghus) for all the effort!
