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.

dxbrad (47) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2016
Tasted very cold from can....aroma has caramel, soft fruits but the flavour just let’s this beer down. Citrus, tick, floral hops, tick but the sheer strength of the alcohol overpowers everything...leaves the palate dry with an unpleasant aftertaste. Not my cup of tea....in fact I would rather have some tea!

fst0912 (34) - GERMANY - JUL 16, 2016
Bernstein rötlich, für ein IPA sehr zurückhaltendes Aroma, kaum Fruchtaromen, dafür stärker malzbetont, stark bitter, nicht unangenehm

Hanoi (803) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2016
Can. Nose had pronounced yeast, fruits, apple, lychee, a little malt. Taste is fruity, red berry, peach, lychee, hint of lemon, fruit and caramel finish. Mouthfeel is smooth. It’s a traditional ipa with me world hops. Nice

Tmrobotix (44) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2016
I don’t like this IPA, the aroma is spot on that’s the best that’s said about this beer. The appearance is normal but it’s kind of hard to score really good or bad on that. The taste is primarily bitter which is normal for an ipa but it feels like complex then I’m used too. Palate is good actually, the body is fine and the bubbles don’t feel that forced. Overal: Man what a dissapointment. I thought I’d have bought a nice IPA. Even the bitterness isn’t that much and I smell the flowery-ness in the aroma but don’t taste it what so ever.

Mathead (11) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 14, 2016
A very nice, classic IPA with a note of sandalwood, clear red with a small but firm white head. Very long lasting bitter aftertaste.

Kobracai (103) - FINLAND - JUL 9, 2016
Dark orange colour. Fruity aroma. Taste is sweet and full. Enjoyable bitterness and a bit citrus. Well made. Off course!
