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.

Crisp and refreshing. Nicey piney hop nose. Better than alot of beers but not a great IPA. I consider it a Lawn Mower beer for high alcohol IPA’s.

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.

Somewhat on the sweet side and a little onedimensional, sweet but with that vanilla / butter tinge, taste quickly dissolves, not too hoppy

hauxe (937) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2017
Pours dark gold with a white frothy head that is stable and long lasting. Aroma is caramel, apricot, citrus. Taste is bittersweet. Light warmth at the finish. Body is medium with average carbonation. A nice one.

Fles gekocht bij AH, uitgeschonken in een Sint Crispijn glas. Helder goud/amber kleurig, met een kleine witte schuimkraag. Behoorlijk moutig, en kenmerken van graan en karamel in het aroma. De IPA accenten van pijnboom/hars en citrusfruit zijn zeker ook wel aanwezig, maar iets meer als een tweede accent. Toch verraadt de overheersing van mout in plaats van de hop, dat deze fles geen super verse IPA meer is, of het bier moet zo bedoeld zijn natuurlijk. Wel nog steeds een behoorlijk bitter smaakpallet, met tonen van grapefruit, hars en limoen, met een medium carbonatie. 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 voor mij wat diepgang en een krachtiger hop profiel. Wel mooi gebalanceerd in mout en hopbitter, deze Brooklyn East IPA wil ik nog eens drinken, maar dan een wat versere batch.

orbit (224) - 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.
