Flavor

A taste of biscuit and nut crests to a bite of floral and peppery hops and a squeeze of lemon. The finish is countered by a mellow sweetness of caramel and tropical fruit.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is somewhat prickly from its carbonation that’s a shade over medium. It has a relatively smooth draw with a medium body.

Overall

Other than its aroma is all too faint, the Brooklyn East IPA is a fine representation of the style. It presents fairly well and has a nice feel. And its palate is well balanced with a nice burst of hops on the backend. Although it might not be quite enough to appease the hopheads. Regardless, this English IPA can be found in many countries around the world, and when you’re in the mood for a hoppy brew, the East IPA can be a nice option.
