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.

Wheatgerm nose with little hop presence. Deep amber color, foamy head. Taste was rich grains, wheatgerm, some hop presence behind it. Very balanced all around.

bonev (244) - POLAND - AUG 25, 2016
Piwo lekko metne w kolorze zloto-czerwonym z grubopecherzykowa obfita piana ktora zostawia ladny lacing na sciankach. W aromacie biale owoce jak cytryny, brzoskwinie czy liczi. Jest naprawde bardzo owocowo. W smaku dosc slodkie z goryczka na srednim poziomie. Czuc karmel, slody i nuty ziolowe. Zapach zdecydowanie robi robote, w odbiorze smaku troche slabiej ale ogolnie to i tak porzadna IPA.

labeerinthum (512) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 21, 2016
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso si indirizza prevalentemente sul luppolo. L’intensità olfattiva è molto elevata e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma a bollicine medie ha una discreta resistenza, con carbonazione abbondante. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. La carbonazione è bassa. Il colore è ambrato. Il corpo è strutturato. L’amaro è deciso. L’intensità gustativa è elevata. La persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono luppolate. Il finale è amarognolo. Il retrogusto è intenso. In bocca l’aroma riporta sentori di miele, resina, frutta secca, pompelmo e castagna.

Fat på Piccolo Mondo, Malmö. Klar bärnstensfärgad med beiget krämigt skum. Mellanstor, något torr kropp. Stor beska med mycket apelsinmarmelad, citrusskal, bröddeg och honung. Beska som ligger kvar länge.

JackMandarin (191) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - AUG 9, 2016
Can from local Tesco. Pours clear. Sandy gold in colour. Large, dense, just off-white head. Has staying power. Lots of orange, grapefruit and plenty of pine in the aroma. Quite resinous and oily. Some herbal notes also. Good. Taste has a bittersweetness to start. Syrupy medium to full mouthfeel. Good level of bitterness punching through. Just right. Dry cracker-like malt. A little astringent on the finish but has a little juiciness to it too. Good stuff.....does exactly what it says on the tin

mice (782) - FINLAND - AUG 7, 2016
Kirkas kuparinvärinen olut melko pienellä ja nopeasti katoavalla vaahdolla. Tuoksu aavistuksen vihanneksinen, miedosti jenkkihumaloidun hedelmäinen, kuitenkin selvästi keskivertoa kevyemmällä ja miedommalla otteella. Samoin maku on aika kevyt, makean toffeinen, hedelmäinen ja loppupuoleltaan aavistuksen katkeran greippinen. Yleisilme on kuitenkin selvästi toffeisemman ja pehmeämmän puolella ja ehkä tässä on tavoiteltukin pahimpien katkero- ja humalapommien vastapainoksi jotain muuta, mutta kyllä tämä kaipaisi rapsakampaa humalointia. Prosentteihin nähden yllättävän kevyt.

Heidbummer (196) - SCOTLAND - AUG 6, 2016
Underrated on here I think. Bottle at Black Fox Edinburgh. Pours clear gold, lacy off white head. Aroma of oak chips and mango - very nice. Modest carbonation. Taste of pine, pineapple, slightly sweet (maple syrup), resin. I like this - it’s very drinkable for the abv.

AssKicker (207) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - AUG 4, 2016
Couleur ambrée claire, mousse peu mirobolante. Au nez comme en bouche on est sur un mélange de caramel et de résineux. L’amertume est modérée, ça paraît un chouïa sucré, et on sent une légère astringence en fin de bouche. Rien de dingo là-dedans, et ça ne fait pas très IPA tout ça.

Nurmis (349) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2016
33cl bottle. Pours amber with off white head. Fruits and floral hops with some maltiness. Medium to heavy bitterness, with light to medium sweetness. Basic IPA.
