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.

Dacrza (502) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 31, 2013
DATE TASTED: July 28, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Howard’s Pub pint... OCCASION: celebrating twelve years of marriage to my only love and my best friend... APPEARANCE: handsome burnt orange body with consistent carbonation; thick/cloudy proud white head--solid... AROMA: crisp floral hops with caramel malts as a base; a bit of pine resin, but overall a relaxed, balanced IPA ... PALATE: medium-to-full bodied, with a strong presence throughout the mouth reasonable aftertaste...TASTE: a nice balance of sweet malts and bitter hops--not really pushing either aspect, to the point where this could be considered a straight pale by flavor... OVERALL: Having had many Brooklyns in the past, it was high time I rate some; the fourth in a series of IPAs this weekend, this brew doesn’t stun or disappoint--it fulfills its duty and eases one into the evening with a sessionable sensibility...

MarcoDL (2135) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2014
Very modest IPA, lacks some true hop character. It has all the traits of an IPA, but it’s all just easy and flat.

giorgos_gtc (82) - GREECE - AUG 15, 2014
Floral enough and also sweet to be honest. Good shape and appearance .Very beautiful foam which remains but not something special as a total option.

Kjøpt på Systembolaget inne i Strömstad. Svak men god aroma. Litt søtlig smak. Passe beskhet og bitterhet. Ren god øl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from bro (jamestulloch). Pours a lovely golden with light bubbly head which lasts. Nice lacing. Aromas of toffee, rose petals, leaves and a light sweet marmalade. Nice taste with hits of leafy hops and toffee. Lovely.
