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.

Pours a light amber to copper with a very minimal head. Mustard pretzel and juniper on the nose with just a touch of citrus. Nice pine flavor with an earthy grass tone balanced by some sweetbread malty notes. Love the balance of this brew and the lower amounts of citrus/grapefruit that is typical of most USA IPA’s. This seems to be more of a traditional english style IPA. Nice finish with notes of pretzel and a clean finish.

Bottle from the Rugby Tap. Aroma is of peach, some malty sweetness. Pretty fresh. The taste is tropical fruits, pretty malty. Pretty fresh. The aftertaste is slightly spicy. Can definitely taste an English influence on this one. Nice stuff, goes down pretty easily considering the strength.

Kjøpt på Systembolaget i Strømstad. mørk gylden farge med hvitt tynt skum. Over middels med kullsyre. En del gress i lukten og smaken. Lite fruktig til å være en IPA. god bitterhet i ettersmaken.

MarcoDL (2136) - 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.

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
