Brooklyn East India Pale Ale

This beer had a nice smell to it. The taste was sweet and not as strong as I would expect of an India pale ale. Unfortunately, most of my notes occurred when the beer was warm. It sort of had an alcoholic taste at the end of each sip. Actually, it's confusing because I had two bottles of it. And both the more finished warmer one and the less finished colder one tasted about the same. It's a nice floral/grassy taste that matches the nose.

(The actual bottle, but not from the actual day.)

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.
