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.

The beer was quite enjoyable...my initial impression was that the beer was heavy on bittering hops, but less on aroma or flavor hops. As the beer warms some of the bitterness mellows out to allow the english malts to come through nicely. There are some piney notes from the hops, and not a particularly noticeable yeast character. I think this is a nice solid IPA but not one of my favorites as IPA’s go. A good beer but not for a session

Bottle poured into a pint glass. Hoppy, bitter flavor that went well with the salmon we cooked up that night. Less aftertaste than other EIPA’s I’ve had. Very nice overall.

markwise (5419) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2008
UPDATED: APR 12, 2012 This beer pours a deep amber with a tiny, yet noticeable white head. The aroma is very floral with a hint of pine, citrus, and spice. The flavor is malty with a mellow bitter taste, but it finishes somewhat clean. Not perfect, but still very good. A mellow IPA.

JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Draught. Pours dark gold, with a thin, creamy white head. Aroma is sweet caramel and citrus, not too bold. Taste is sweet biscuity malt up front, with a bit of caramel sweetness, with a nice citrusy, somewhat piney hop bitterness emerging about halfway in. Hoppiness is rounded, not overly bright - excellent balance. Mouthfeel is crisp carbonation, with a nice dry finish. Great sessionable version of the style.

on tap at a restaurant (Ramsis in Louisville). Poured a kind of strange tangerine orange/yellow color. Besides this, it was a nice refreshing brew true to its style. Its flavor was dominated by floral hops on the front with a light resinous finish. This brew is light bodied, soft, highly drinkable, and lacking of any alcohol flavor.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - JUL 10, 2008
12oz bottle. Pours deep amber color. Thin white head. aroma Is of big green floral hops. Strong caramel malt. The flavor is of bready, caramel malt. Heavy resin flavor on the back of the palate. Some hints of wood. Its like a hot biscuit with hop honey butter smeared all over it. Medium bodied. Full flavored. Alcohol is noticable, yet not overwelming. An above average IPA (english style).

Smooth and well balanced. OK but nothing great. Sort of pedestrian. Nothing much that would make me want another.
