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.

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.

12 oz bottle-pours a light tan head that laces with copper color. Aroma is medium citrus hops and malt-caramel. Taste follows with the hops bitterness coming through at the finish. OK carbonation. Light/medium body.

Stunning. Very hoppy and strong in taste. Last long on the tongue. Beautiful amber colour with an off-white head. Taste is slightly fruity and has a nice finish.

Christian (10782) - 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.

Pinball (10610) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2008
a bit of a sour aroma (unexpected). thankfully it didn’t come back in the flavor. Looks great, good taste too, although everything is a bit damped down compared to the best mircobrew ipa’s i’ve encountered. Great balance between sweet and bitter, a bit on the bitter end of the scale, which i like. Alc. totally hidden. Great brew, but the aroma draws down bigtime.

bhensonb (10367) - 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.

One of my favorite Brooklyn brews. Golden colour. Very fruity hoppy sweet aroma. Flavour is quite dry, a lot of fruity hoppiness, some lemon, good maltiness and some sweetness. Dry fruity looong lasting aftertaste.
