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.

Wierd nose. Kinda bittersweet cocoa. Mouthfeel somewhat thick. Crystal clear brew. Decent brew taste but the hops seemed strange.

From Feb 2008

I got this bottle in a trade with Nutbrown. Thanks Alan!

It pours from 12oz bottle a clear gold with a 1 finger head of foam.

The smell is equal portions of pungent hops and sweet malt and a note of mint.

The taste on first sip is both hoppy and malty with the hops*grassy) just eeking out the malt. Further sips in and the malty character subsides somewhat leaving the hops to dominate...and there's a minty/fruity flavour in the background as well. The mouthfeel is medium and it finishes with a bitter bite that I quite enjoy when I'm in the mood for it. And I am...;^)

I tried this a few years ago and, iirc, I thought it was a touch maltier than what I'm sipping on today but it's still a good drop and I'd put it in my regular rotation if it was available locally.
