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.

Clear, dark copper pour with a 1 finger, off white head. Aroma is fruity esters, citrus hops, candy crystal caramel malt, light berry notes and lemon. Flavor is sweet crystal malt, caramel, berry chewy candy, mild caramel, toast, Gummy Worms, Orange Wedge candy, light tea and herbal planty hops and some light booziness and bitterness at the finish. Medium body, soda-like body with a moderate carbonation and off dry finish. Smells and tastes like an alcopop-ish attempt at recreating a "sweet and fruity" APA.

Bottle at conference outside Skövde. Pretty ok IPA, but my expectations were higher considering Brooklyn Lager, which I really like.

KoNrRiI (694) - Århus, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2015
0.33 bottle. Delicately hazy, light amber color and a small, white head. Hoppy aroma of exotic fruits. Taste is bitter, hoppy, fruity. Medium body, oily texture, and average carbonation. Finish is medium long and quite bitter, though not half as bitter as a an IPA could be expected to be. All in all a standard IPA, nothing to get excited about.

leosanches (40) - - MAY 15, 2015
IPA tradicional, dourada e com espuma clara pouco presente. O aroma também é clássico das IPAs, com toque frutado e amadeirado. O sabor também é clássico, porém mais equilibrado do que s maioria das IPAs, com o amargor controlado pelo sabor frutado, o que não impede o aftertaste seco e permanente. Tem o toque leve de uma cerveja sazonal, com corpo leve e toque floral. Boa com alimentos leves.

bewyder (204) - FRANCE - MAY 15, 2015
IPA à l’amertume autour du fruité, très agréable sans être agressive. Manquerait un peu de profondeur. Bue à la pression à la Brooklyn Brewery, NY, USA, le 03/05/2015.
