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 (195) - New Jersey, 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.

loco_gallego (67) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 30, 2014
Ambrée orange ocre, limpide. Mousse blanc cassé légèrement persistante. Arômes de malt, caramel. Houblonnée avec des notes fruitées et sucrées. La douceur domine un peu trop pour une IPA. En bouche maltée, caramel. Plutôt sucrée. Avec une fin de bouche moyennement amère. Peu caractéristique quant à l’houblonnage, mais une IPA intéressante du point de vue du maltage.

Transfer from BA review on 10-7-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a clear orange-amber color with a one finger of pure white fizzy head. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a moderate level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is rather light overall. It is heaviest of an earthy smell mixed with a bit of a biscuit aroma. Along with these smells are hint of a grapefruit aroma and a small amount of a tangerine sweetness. Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit and cracker flavor mixed with a moderately strong earthy hop taste. Upfront there is a little bit of an orange fruit flavor which fades as the taste advances. Grapefruit flavors of the brew grow stronger as the taste advances, seemingly at the expense of the sweet orange, with more earthy and some herbal tastes also joining the taste profile. In the end, with the sweet dwindling and the onset of more hop, a semi-dry and bitter hopped flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness with the carbonation being rather average as well. The moderate nature of both the thickness and carbonation are rather nice for complimenting both the bitter and semi-dry malt flavors of the brew with a nice drinkability. Overall – An nice IPA overall. A good, mainly bitter earthy bite that is a bit on the drier side overall.

Hazy copper pour with tan head. Biscuit aroma, slightly dank yeast and hops. Traditional pale malt flavor with mild bitter and grassy hop finish. Nice 90's style IPA.

MarkoNm (544) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - SEP 15, 2014
Pours a clear amber color, topped with a small light beige head. Biscuity aroma complemented by citrusy fruits. The taste starts pleasantly sweet and biscuity followed by gentle hoppy bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable and subtle IPA.

Gurthnar (1822) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle thanks to MisoW. Aroma is nicely, empathically hoppy. Citrusy, resiny. Background caramel. Clear golden colour. Taste is intensely hoppy up front, both in bitterness and flavour. Citrusy, orange, resiny. Juicy, tasty. Easily dirnkable, refreshing. Really good, despite the hops giving me more American impression, but that might as well be my fault.
