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.

What a great English style IPA. Wonderful spicy hop aroma is completely different than the citrusy, harsh hop aroma of American style IPAs. Malt character is in good balance with the hoppy aroma, flavor and bitterness. Deep copper color with little head. Less bitter than most IPAs, but quite drinkable and worth a look.

Wow. This beer packs a big punch, both in flavor and alcohol...............

Light amber; Rich aroma - lots of floral hops and chewy maltiness; robust bitterness but balanced off with a fair bit of malt. Strikes a compromise between the American and English interpretations of the style.

A fine example of an IPA. True to the style................................

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2007 A decent IPA, smooth and mildly hoppy...no head and moderately enjoyable malt flavors of caramel and grapefruit citrus. Hoppy and bitter throughout with grapefruit dominating the malt.

Not a huge IPA (more like a nice APA), but still a good beer. Hop flavour to start with a sweetish middle (hints of vanilla?)and a nice lingering hop finish.

Not a big fan... a bit too many hops for me.................................

Was somewhat disappointed with this Brooklyn offering. One of their weaker brews. Both malt and hops a bit too laid back to make it a good IPA. Hop aroma also falls short. Nothing bad about it, but needs some more muscle.
