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.

beerbomb (230) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2007
Pours dark amber with small foamy head. Aroma is of floral, woody hops and sweet, toasty malt. Flavor is very malty with earthy, woody, flowery hops. Smooth palate. Not an outstanding IPA but well balanced for an English Pale Ale.

Batavi (396) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2017
Fles gekocht bij AH, uitgeschonken in een Sint Crispijn glas. Helder goud/oranje kleurig, met een kleine witte schuimkraag. Behoorlijk moutig en kenmerken van karamel in het aroma. Zeker ook wel IPA accenten van pijnboom/hars en citrusfruit aanwezig Toch verraadt de overheersing van mout in plaats van de hop, dat deze fles geen super verse IPA meer is. Wel nog steeds een behoorlijk bitter smaakpallet, met tonen van grapefruit, hars en limoen. De theeachtige accenten geven aan dat dit bier niet zo vers meer is, als een IPA eigenlijk gedronken moet worden. De alcohol is wel duidelijk waarneembaar, met een droge afdronk, bijna Engelse Ale stijl. Een prima IPA, mist wat diepgang en hop bite, deze nog eens herhalen, maar dan met een versere fles.

orbit (173) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2017
Fine IPA, but it lacks serious character imo. Not as smooth and herblike as many other golden US IPAs. It seems hard for big breweries to come up with something with real style.

Tipica ipa. Colore tra oro e rame schiuma moderata. Mediamente amara, si sentono i luppoli. Secca sul finale.

radassace (409) - SCOTLAND - OCT 11, 2017
355ml can. Pours golden amber with an off white head. Medium carbonation. Nose is really biscuit and bready, burnt caramel, treacle and some citrus in the background. Sweet, malty medium dense mouth feel. Taste is biscuit, caramel, treacle and orange/grapefruit peel. Very bitter. Touch of pine resin in the finish. An old school IPA. Pretty nice, just a little over sweet for me.

3.4
p0urmeac0ld0ne (199) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - OCT 10, 2017
Head disappears into nowhere a minute or so after pouring. Golden / amber brown in colour. Strong malty backbone with decent levels of refreshing hop aftertaste. Not the best from Brooklyn but very welcoming and very warming at the strength of 6.9%.

GuilleDF (4) - - OCT 2, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2017 Orange copper colour, quite transparent. White head with a short lifespan. Smell is hoppy with a touch of fruits and caramel. Taste is light and moderately bitter. Aftertaste is also bitter but not very long-lasting.

3.6
DavidSvinth (216) - DENMARK - OCT 1, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2017 Godt humlet i næsen. Lidt citrus og lidt florale noter. God bitter smag og en let sødme. Dejlig IPA.
