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.

Un gout de fruit de la passion s’épanouit en bouche après les premières notes d’amertume. Comme toute bonne IPA, la longueur en bouche est profonde. Une réussite.

KapitiCritique (369) - Xincheng, Henan Province, CHINA - APR 30, 2015
Middle of the road, not bitter but good strong hops. lighter than rogue Red Amber, stronger than a Saranac Pale Ale. Good appearance, not much head, but lacing is persistent, very light nose, carbonation is fine, rounded taste and good palate. no sweetish or bitter aftertaste. High alcohol for sessions but then who needs to drive home if they have trains and taxis

kojak_nyc (4) - Dix Hills, New York, USA - APR 28, 2015 does not count
A warm golden hued EIPA, served in a shaker glass poured from a 12oz bottle at 40 degrees F. The aroma is very reserved, the taste and palate make up for it. It medium bodied, and the initial taste shows a strong, but not heavy, hops presence. This is not going to appease those who want to be knocked over, but instead, a very enjoyable and drinkable beer.

Turtles (172) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2015
0,5l tap. Clear copper color. Hoppy aroma, several tropical fruits. The taste is clean and balanced, good basic beer but no major flavors. The taste of mango and mandarin, sweet but bitterness is low.

Hubster (18) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 22, 2015
En god sød IPA med dejlig fyldig konsistens. Meget velafbalanceret. Klassisk engelsk stil med en markant smag af byg, og diskrete humletyper i forhold til andre amerikanske IPA’er. Men der er alligevel noget eksotisk frugt, slik og citros over aromaen, sammen med det brødagtige fra malten. Rigtig god rund smag. Slet ikke en kedelig IPA, selvom at jeg foretrækker mere humlearoma.

sonotono (74) - torino, ITALY - APR 19, 2015
Colore ambrato chiaro, schiuma cremosa, carbonazione leggera da stile. Buona sentori speziati, resinosi, fruttati, agrumati e leggero erbaceo. Corpo rotondo, subito bella nota maltata dolce, poi amaro finale lungo. Bel bilanciamento di sapori. Buona.

Limpida, ambrata, scarsa persistenza della schiuma. Al naso e al palato malto ed agrumato dato dal luppolo. Corpo medio, mediamente carbonata. Retrogusto amaro molto lungo.
