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.

Rasmus40 (11684) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2011
Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma is caramel and moderate hoppy - grapefruit. Flavor is medium sweet and rather bitter. Finish is quite bitter and dry. Had it with a burger at a cafe and it was too bitter to go with the food, but you can’t blame the beer for that. 220211

English hops in the aroma let you know where they’re going with this beer -- far away from California and the Northwest styles of IPAs. Take a sip and you know the aroma was legit -- this sucker’s got some bite. Some maltiness to help balance the flavor somewhat, but only somewhat.

bhensonb (11378) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 12, 2008
Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Lots of hop, and it seems more resin than citrus. Light amber color with a flattened white head. Medium body with very mild carbonation. Flavor is well balanced between malt and hop. Not too strong. Just right. The hop seems to finish a bit floral. A delightful brew.

Christian (11260) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2009 Orange beer with short-lived head. Rich aroma of roses, grass, peach and strawberries. Hops-dominated bitter flavour with an almost tobacco’ish dryness on top of a little fruityness. Long lasting hop bitter aftertaste.
