Brooklyn East India Pale Ale
From Brooklyn Brewery – 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.
Brooklyn Brewery – Brooklyn East India Pale Ale – 12 oz. can poured into a pint glass 6.8% abv.
Appearance: Pours an amber gold with a very small cap of white.
Aroma: Faint pineapple, toffe like malt.
Taste: Fruity beginning. Crushed pineapple, sweet malt, euro spicy hops but a backround note.
Mouthfeel:Full bodied with modest carbonation.
Overall: While nothing like the IPA’s I seek out/enjoy, this is a tasty beer. I wish I was able to compare this to what was brewed back then, so until my time machine gets out of the shop, I will take Brooklyn’s word for it.
