My brother-in-law is visiting from New Jersey and I asked if he could get hold of some Brooklyn Monster Ale (probably my all time favourite, if my 3-years-since memory serves me correctly) and some Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout.

Unfortunately, the only Brooklyn product he could get in his local beer store was the East India Pale Ale. Not quite what I was wanting, but hey it's a beer I've not tried before, so life's not all bad.

I was actually pretty impressed with this one. I've dipped my toe in the water with IPAs during the past year and it's definitely been a pleasant experience and has cultivated a growing appreciation for the style.

I must admit I was surprised to see this had an abv of 7.0%, as I would have expected it to be around 5.x or so. I like beers at this strength though, because they go down really well but have a nice "thwack" to them at the same time.

I found this beer very refreshing and highly drinkable. Mr Oliver, you Sir, are a Genius.
