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.

Oakes (18828) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2001
Light amber; Rich aroma - lots of floral hops and chewy maltiness; robust bitterness but balanced off with a fair bit of malt. Strikes a compromise between the American and English interpretations of the style.

Honey brown color, small off-white head. Cotton blank dunky nose: malty cheddar cheese aroma. Lightly hopped, not very interesting IPA.

Nice amber pour in the glass. Clear. Nose and taste is more bitterly hopped than expected. Good beer. Rated 10/18/2000

yngwie (17234) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2010 Bottled. Clear, golden and with an off-white head. It has a nice, fruity hop-aroma, with grapefruit, pine and some hints of beef-stock. Hoppy and piny flavor as well, well balanced, and the stock-notes are present here as well. Medium to full body, quite drying, and a hoppy finish with some hints of alcohol. Rating: 6-4-7-3-14-3.4. 061124

Bottle at Patricks. It pours a clear golden body and a finger-thick off-white head. The aroma has a nice blend of malty sweetness and citrusy, resiny hops. The bitterness balances nicely with the malty caramel sweetness, but it’s definitely on the hoppy side. Full body, dry in the mouth. Nicely carbonated. Pleasant bitterness in the finish finish. A very drinkable one, although a bit moderate to todays standards. 101021

FatPhil (17078) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 1, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2008 350ml bottle. Lovely fruity bitter aroma, slightly sweet. Sticky in the mouth, alcoholic too, and the hoppiness is a bit resiny. Pleasant, but a little one sided - the malt is almost non-existent compared to the hops. Also, the alcohol is too prominent, there was no need for it to be brewed to this strength. I suspect 19th century English beers were absolutely nothing like this American brew. Get back to studying, Garrett.

3.4
Benzai (16682) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2011
Bottle @ The White Horse, Parsons Green. Hazy orange color, creamy off-white head. Smell lightly hoppy and bitter. Taste mostly bitter, no fruityness. I miss the hops in this beer, or was it an old bottle perhaps? Decent carbo, medium body.

3.2
Ferris (16499) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2013
Bottle - Grapefruit hop notes with some malt in the background. Pale clear copper with a think white head. Resinous and bitter with orange notes. I much prefer this on tap and will rerate when I get the opportunity.

3.2
Dedollewaitor (16383) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2007 Pale yellow with white head. Citrus and flowery aroma = sweet taste - malts. Bitter finish. easy drinkable and very decent.
