BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brooklyn Brewery
New York, United States

Style: English India Pale Ale (IPA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.90%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Plenty of IPAs will promise you the moon and the stars, looking to seduce you with words of smashing bitterness and hops everlasting. Actually, we're not here to "blow you away with a lupulin cannon," or "peel the enamel off your teeth." East IPA is a clean, drinkable IPA that's packed with flavor and offers a bold balance, not a smack in the head. American hops soar in the bright piney aroma, while East Kent Goldings hops bring the taste of stone fruits and firm bitterness from IPA's ancestral British home. Give our East IPA a try with some rich crab cakes or salmon, strike up a conversation with farmhouse cheddars, and find harmony alongside spicy dishes. East IPA's blend of tradition and exuberance sets the standard for hop-driven deliciousness.

A nice copper colour with a modest head of foam. Fresh aroma hop smell (resin, peach, lychee), but the flavours seem a bit subdued. Same goes for the taste, though this has a nice touch of caramel mixed in. Smooth body, although a bit more carbonation would have been nice. A good IPA, but a bit too subtle for me.

Pours copper with a medium head that leaves a ring and a few spots of !ace. Nose is a pleasant mix of American and English hops. Flavor is nicely rounded malts with a well balanced bitterness. Not a hop bomb by any means, but a nice well rounded mild IPA.
