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.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a small white head that fades to a ring leaving some lacing. Aroma is fruity and loaded with sweet malt and floral hops. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a well balanced bitterness. An underated IPA.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Nice aromas, hitting me with citrus tones and hops. The taste is great; like any good IPA, it finds the balance of hops, bitterness, and tastes very well. The first Brooklyn beer Ive had, and its very good.

demitriustown (1187) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUN 22, 2007
12 oz bottle: Aroma of fruity hops, light malts, somewhat heavy, and lightly creamy scent. Appearance is a amber/orange color with a small head that dissapears quickly. Taste consists of a bit fruity hop note, grapefruit, pine needles, and a ever so lightly sprinkling of caramel malts intermingled with some spice. Aftertaste is bitter and really crisp for an IPA. Overall, Very nice IPA. I like this one! Cheers!!!

Ibrew2or3 (8358) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 19, 2007
Pours light copper with off white head. The aroma is grapefruit and orange rind. Pretty nice. There is a lightly vague-ish sweetness somewhere behind the hops. The taste starts off with some malt sweetness and grapefruit hoppiness that seems to mix into a sweet citrus flavor. Then the citrus grapefruit hop bitterness hits with all its mild might. Very fresh tasting and enjoyable IPA.

This is an excellent version of a classic british style pale ale. It has notes typical hops citrus and a nice malt mouthfeel. This transcends into a nice bitterness to finish it off.

BCAR (223) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2007
Pours a luminescent orange color. Carbonation is very low and kind of a boring thing to look at in the glass. Atypical IPA with much more malt content than hop prominence. I taste licorice and syrup along with a background of english style hopping. Seems like it would be good on tap with the English bitter style. Finish is slightly bitter and lasts.
