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.

May 2005 - Poured nice copper color with medium sized head which dissipated rather quickly. Smelled fruity and hoppy. The taste...I like this one. For an IPA, the hop presence was very well balanced. Had a tangy edge to it and the alcohol taste was present, but in this case, was nice. Not being a big IPA guy, this is my kind of IPA.

Pours clear orange with no head and little carbonation. Lots of malt in the smell. Definitely an English IPA, very balanced flavor with earthy English hops. Enough hops to satisfy but not blow you away.

Great IPA. I have tried a variety of IPAs and am very critical. This brew does a great job in throwing the hoppy punch in your face. Not too heavy on the English malt and nice balance of pine and lemon notes. nicely carbonated

Nihon (247) - Vernon, Connecticut, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Orange/yellow color, sweet hoppy aroma. Very well balanced hoppy flavor, not too overpowering, light sweetness. One of the better IPAs Ive had.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Pours a light amber with an off white head. Decent hop aroma, pretty profound, a little bit piney, some grapefruit citrus, but not much. The taste is definitely balanced pretty well, somewhat floral hops, citrus, and a slight bitterness. A little bit of some sweet caramel is definitely noticeable as well. Nice session IPA.

Light copper color, strong carbonation, but lacks the normal IPA attributes. Tends to be balanced- no strong hop bitterness or citrus taste. All in all, pretty good beer, but i wouldnt have thought it was an IPA if i was drinking it (would be suprised if it was a pale ale). For a beginner to IPAs, not a bad starter. For those of you looking for traditional solid IPA, look elsewhere

Speedle (266) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 27, 2007
clear copper color with a white rocky head...sour aroma with some fruit....head disapated quickly with some lacing...fruity tasting with less bitter than I expected...more bitter in the finish...I like most of Brooklyns beers, but this is not an exeptional IPA..too sweet for me

puboflyons (3325) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 22, 2007
From a 12 fl oz (US) bottle with an expiration date of Oct. 07. Poured darker than I expected with a kind of bronze-copper tone. Very little head/lacing. Not an overpowering aroma but the flavor is extremely hoppy. Sort of felt creamy in my mouth. Give it a gold star!
