Bottle. Clear copper with small, disappearing head. Grassy and fruity aroma with citrus notes. Floral and earthy taste with strawberry, apricot, chestnut, caramel. Light carbonation, full mouthfeel. Good EIPA. jezmez68 (404) - Chesterton, Indiana, USA - JUL 31, 2009
It’s EAST India Pale Ale, so you don’t get it confused with NORTH India Pale Ale, which is made with seals. Or something. I don’t know, it’s an English IPA, and really, that style is pretty boring to me. I guess it’s a good example of the EIPA, but that’s pretty much a below average beer to me. It’s got drinkability. jmulv (336) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 22, 2009
First off, this review is a tad biased - great memories of this beer at the brewery Friday night happy hour. But still, the beer is excellent for a single IPA - citrusy, smooth, crisp, hoppy, and a little bitter. It has a complex taste without being overbearing - a delight for any occasion. Drink on!

I shared a bottle of this with BeerBaron617 this evening. I didn’t really have any expectations, as Brooklyn has yet to wow me with a tasty beverage. It poured a nice clear light amber color with a tight off-white head. It has a nice sweet hoppy aroma that is a bit different from typical American craft brewed IPA’s. It tastes a bit different from the IPA’s I am accustomed to, a bit more malty, a bit sweeter, but it still has that bitter taste to it. Overall it’s a pretty tasty beverage, but I think i’ll try some other Brooklyn’s before trying this again.

bottle, Dankeschön Allen! Clear amber colour, small and quickly diminishing white head. Fruity hop aroma that is quite promising. Full-bodies, intensively malty with hints of roasted malts, herbs and caramel. There are some lovely citrusy hop flavours present, but they seem to be killed by a overpowering alcohol flavour. What a pity, I would love to have enjoyed the hops more in the beer. hallinghansen (3430) - Odense SV, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2009

12oz Bottle at the King’s Hall, Stoke on Trent Beer Festival 19/10/2007 RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2009
Strong hop aroma. Golden coloured pale and hoppy with lots of alcohol present. Some dryness. Vegetable and malt flavours. Crisp and bitter lasting finish.
Bottle, Rehills, Newcastle. Heavily floral aroma, especially of elderflower. Sharp bitterness that gradually becomes fruity, with grapefruit the most apparent flavour. Can be slightly vineous and quite alcoholic tasting. Wouldn’t class this too much as an English IPA....
