Beer Review: Brooklyn East India Pale Ale

From the brewery which treated me to a very good lager last week comes the first IPA that I get to drink.

My biggest problem these days is not getting beer that’s not already chilled, because I hate having to rush home before the pints get warm and then having to shove them in the fridge. And even if I get home while the beer is still cool, the rushing makes the pint ejaculate a lot of head when I finally open it. Ejaculate, head – get it? I’m stuck with a 4-finger head so I can’t laugh at my clever little joke.

Brooklyn’s East India Pale Ale is an English India Pale Ale, and it smells hoppy as hell. I love the way it looks though; not the amber colour, but how it looks thicker than I expected.

This is a very bitter beer – the hops start attacking my tongue immediately and it doesn’t know how to fight a beer back. These spicy hops are overpowering… is this how IPAs are supposed to be?

Not bad at all for a strong beer (6.9% alcohol volume), but if I ever have this again, it’ll be with spicy Indian khana.

RATING: 2.5/5
