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.

Light orange hue. Light citrus, grass and sweet bread nose. Flavor is citrus hops with malty balance and bitter finish. Crisp and clean IPA, solid all around bitterness and balance.

Orange-amber with a thin white head. Nose full of Brit hops. Flavor is hoppy yet mild. Sweet, subtle. Good, but not great.

Appearance is a lighter orange IPA color with a finger of snow-white head. Hazy and somewhat cloudy. Looks quite good. Smell is floral, aromatic citrus hops. Malt has a bitter aroma. Bittersweet with more warmth. Almost a Belgiany harshness to the scent. Taste is a solid bitter, but floral hop flavor. Bitter on the back of the tongue. Sweeter on the swallow than a typical IPA. Some bitter fruit and spicy orange also comes thorugh. Feels thick and milky. A little chunky. Leaves a bitter film. Spicy on the tongue. Bubbly and fizzy. Overall it’s a bitter, spicy IPA. Like a hoppy farmhouse or Saison to me. A bit much.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2009 This is an English style IPA. This is not an American IPA, so if your looking for a hopped out IPA this is not it.

12oz - Nice pour, color and malt structure. There was no real nose. A lingering dirt/tree bark taste on end was distracting and ruined it for me.

Full of hops,citrus flavours and a biting bitterness. Poured from the bottle a light brown colour with a creamy head which lasted well down the glass. A very acceptable version of this iconic style.

A lighter style ipa that is well balanced. Very strong citrus smell and taste and light on the palate. Finished very smooth with a pleasant hops character.

Three parts Budweiser and one part shoe polish. Amazing! This was a cheap beer that I found in Vickery Park and was exactly as I expected.
