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 darker golden brown with minimal head. I get hops on the aroma, a bitter smell from the hops and a bit of malt there. On the palate up front I get hops, subtle malt and really not much else. I guess it is doing what it should to an extent for an IPA, but not much else.

Purchased at Ross Deli in Lakewood as part of a mixed 12 pack. The aroma here is a nice slightly buttery malt with a good helping of citrus. The flavor follows with that buttery malt, but the bitterness doesn’t lend itself to it as well as I would like. It comes off too crisp, but in a dry and bring manner. It could use a little sweetness to liven this up.

Bottle - Pours light amber with low white head. Aroma is nice, typical of IPA, not as strong as some, and very smooth. I think this is one of the less stronger IPA’s. It is very drinkable, a nice intro to IPA’s. Aftertaste has a little lingering carbonation taste. Hops in the aftertaste dissipates faster that most IPA’s. Overall nice brew.

A very solid beer. Nice floral hop aroma, as well as a balanced taste of bitter floral hops and citrus.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2009 bottle. amber head but fades quickly with some lacing. Clear amber color with plenty of carbonation. bitter/hoppy aftertaste lingers feels a little soapy ... i want more aroma & body.

pours amber with a head that fades, and a lacing that lasts. tastes kind of bitter with a well balanced malt taste. after taste leaves my mouth tasting slightly hoppy.
