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.

spacecube (650) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2014
355ml can, pours golden orange brown with a small white head, pours clear. Aroma is caramel & toffee malt, with orange peel and floral notes. Light body, solid carbonation with a balanced crisp finish. Not a hop bomb, well crafted, tasty.

Peter_L (465) - SWEDEN - APR 12, 2014
Flaska från SB. Bärnstensfärgad vätska med gräddigt vitt skum. Väldigt knuten doft men till slut kommer blommiga aromer och engelsk kola. Inte mycket till amerikansk humlebomb. Mjuk och len i smaken. Även här lyser humlearonerna med sin frånvaro.

chimpgibbon (201) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2014
Malty sweet pale ale. Veering towards lagerish malts. Lightish body, moderate booze. Dry medium bitter end. Unremarkable but ok.

czar (3775) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2014
pours clear bright golden with a nice off-whtie head, some retention and alcing. pine, resin, candied oranges, toasted and caramel malts, some sweetness, brown sugar, some danky fruits. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily and a bit sticky, some booze, short to medium long grassy-spicy-citrusy-piney finish. a bit sweet for my liking but still decently crafted. just not my cup of tea. o-k.

Flaska från systemet. Mörk gul i färgen. Doftar blommigt. Söt fruktig smak med väl balanserad beska.

oliodnb (125) - ITALY - APR 4, 2014
Darkish yellow, one finger of white head. Smells more of malts than the usual tropical fruitiness of the american IPAs. Taste again of malts and vegetal hops. Light bitter finish. Not so good, maybe should be had fresher (bottle best before august 2014).

hohops (125) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2014
Appearance- orangey brown, a white head which slowly diminishes. Plenty of bubbles rising. Aroma- lots of fruitiness, biscuity, orange peel, a lot of hops. Nice smelling. Taste- fruity- lemons, oranges, citrus. A bit of malt comes through in the finish. A lot less bitter than is usual, and quite smooth. Juicy, refreshing, and tasty.
