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.

LarvalChemist (29) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JAN 11, 2009
Poured a translucent amber with a medium, but long lasting, light tan head. Little lacing in the head. Aroma was definitely hoppy but not overpoweringly so. Taste caught me by surprise. Hops are there in a citrusy way but I thought I detected hints of oak in there. Nothing overpowering to be had. A fairly short, clean finish as well. Mouthfeel was medium light. Overall a decent pale ale.
