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.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2008 330 mL. Pours a light amber/darkish orange with a small, off-white head that is thin and settles down quickly. Aromas of strawberry, floral hops, citrus. Flavor is doughy with some floral hops, pine resin along with lots of caramel. Creamy mouth feel. Bitter, long aftertaste. Not bad but way below the curve.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - DEC 1, 2008
Clear amber, small pale head. Nose is grapefruity hops and toffee malts, quite straightforward. Flavor is caramel malts with flowery hops, lots of grapefruit bitterness in the finish. Slight metallic tinge. Medium bodied, strongly carbonated mouthfeel. This one felt great a few years back, now it’s just alright. Misses that last punch aromawise.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2008
Hazy amber with a thin white head that’s gone daddy gone. Aroma is heavily floral with some light malt and caramel to balance it out. Taste is heavy floral too, somewhat vegetal with a sweet balanced finish. Decent but not great.

daknole (10925) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Tasting at Brewtopia. This is another pretty good beer from the Brooklyn Brewery. Copper colored pour with a small head. Hops hit the nose(citrus). Some malt is detectable, but the hops are winning the battle. Flavor is quite hoppy as well. I found it to be a very nice beer.
