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.

beerbomb (213) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2007
Pours dark amber with small foamy head. Aroma is of floral, woody hops and sweet, toasty malt. Flavor is very malty with earthy, woody, flowery hops. Smooth palate. Not an outstanding IPA but well balanced for an English Pale Ale.

cagou007 (568) - FRANCE - SEP 1, 2015
Pours clear amber with medium white head. Hoppy nose. Aromas of citrus, grapferuit, resinous pine and some caramel. Average carbonation, medium body. Long bitter and piney finish. Rather great average IPA.

corkyrory66 (929) - BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2015
Ipa de 6,9 % abv en format 35,5 cl, avec des houblons américains et du East Kent Golding pour une autre face de l’amertume. Couleur ambré moyen, à la clarté nette. Bulles très fines, par milliers en fontaine centrale virevoltante. Magnifique. Mousse beige moyen, crémeuse, qui nappe à 2 mm. Arômes de malt grillé, fruit confit, pâte de fruits, fruit de la passion. 1ère bouche souple au splendide ensemble fruit/malt/levure. Arrière-bouche dense, tout à fait à l’équilibre, avec une amertume merveilleuse. 2ème au sublime équilibre malt/houblon/fruit. Arrière-bouche qui touche à la perfection. 3ème superbe bouche avec du tabac brun, pointe de seigle, pain complet. Arrière-bouche harmonieuse, et très heureuse amertume. Longueur de toute beauté, avec des épices fines, quelques herbes, du bois blanc, de la résine. Jambes fines, marquées, un rien huileuses. Levure fine, un peu résineuse, très belle ligne. Alcool au magnifique dosage, entre du consistant et une aide à l’amertume. Finale qui est une merveille pure. CONCLUSION : comme l’explique le brasseur, il n’a pas voulu d’une ipa qui arrache l’émail des dents (joie image !!), mais d’une ipa équilibrée entre amertume et douceur. Quelle prodigieuse conception, et quelle belle réalisation !! When east beats west ...

Aroma of high hoppiness, citrus and grapefruit. Taste is light malts, hoppy and friendly. A decent classic that works everyday.

Beautiful light brown colour. Has a light caramel flavour. I was hoping for a more fruity taste.
