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.

12 oz bottle at beerbistro. Pours a slightly murky copper/gold with tiny white cap. Big resiny hoppy nose with some citrus. Flavour is big and grapefruity with a good malt backbone. Medium body. Very good.

kevd193213 (992) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 13, 2009
12 oz bottle. Golden amber pour with a medium off white head. Aroma of hops and sweet sugar. Taste of peppery hops but a lot of malt was also present, almost and IPA/APA hybrid. Nice sharp finish, yet smooth for the ABV.

The first thing i noticed was that this was more of an APA than an IPA. Brooklyn tried to do sort of a mix between an english IPA and a west coast IPA and came out with a muddled mix of the two. not bad, but you have have to chose one way or another. most west coast IPA drinkers will find this too malty, not enough citrus and pine, and english IPA drinkers will find it too hoppy.

Best Before: November 2009
I tried this beer on September 24, 2009 at ’The Beerbistro" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a transparent golden orange with a thin white head that lasts. The aroma is citrusy with notes of pine and grain. The mouthfeel is medioum bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is grapefruity hops with some grainy notes. A very good beer.

Tried a sample at Brewfest Tallahassee. Definitely English in style, don’t expect to be bowled over with hops.
