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 an orange copper color with a medium to large sized creamy off white head. Nose is floral and citrus with lots of sweet malt but also tangy. Interesting and delicious nose. Taste is malty and very bitter with more citrus which is nice but the mouthfeel is kind of harsh and acidic. Overall a pretty tasty beer that went great with pizza.

Pours with a large, frothy, off-white head. Hazy orange body. Aroma of citrus (orange) and slightly spicey hops. Taste is a bit bitter, but theere is a lot of malt covering it. Water like mouthfeel, light bubbles.

beergod (103) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2008
This ale pours a nice amber color with a small head The nose is of slight citrus hops, but in a very mild way. Taste is pretty good, but definetly mild. This isn’t what alot of people would consider a tipycal IPA, but it makes for a good drink. Definetly an English style IPA.

AMN (127) - Dublin, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Good balanced IPA - proof that you don’t need to go overboard on hops to make it taste great. Looks fine; clear orange-yellow and a white head that left medium lacing.

rustbucket0873 (458) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - SEP 19, 2008
Pours a golden color, with a small head, that disappears quickly. the aroma is slight of hops, honey, and malts. The flavor is hoppy, but not over whelming. it is sweet. This is a pretty good beer

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2008
Bottle courtesy of markwise. Pours a cloudy golden color with thin off-white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy with notes of citrus, honey, malt, grain, and grass. Flavor is much milder than an American IPA with notes of maple syrup, malt, honey, grain and hops. Medium body with a slight sweet finish. Very drinkable and not very hoppy. Nice ale.

Plovmand (8231) - Helsinge, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2008
Bottle. Poured clear golden amber with a medium white head. Hoppy grassy aroma with caramel and citrus. Flavour is hoppy with hay notes as well as grapefruit and caramel. It ends up fruity and malty. Very nice IPA indeed.

Bought this as part of my pick six at my local shop, It pours a lighter amber, with good head, but bad lacing. It’s flavor is lighter than I’d like to see in an IPA, but that doesn’t make it a bad beer. It’s similar to the Harpoon IPA I recently tried, in that it’s more like a good pale ale, versus an average IPA. Cheers!

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2008 Bottle in trade from TheBeerSommelier. Thanks Matt!
Pours a light clear amber with a smallish off-white head. Smell is nice balanced hops and malt. A touch fruity, citrusy and nice. Taste is also nicely balanced with a nice crisp bitterness and citric hoppy flavor, followed by sticky sweet malt and a lightly yeasty flavor. There is a light lingering fruity bitterness. I liked this more than I expected and it is a very solid and highly drinkable IPA.
