Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2015. Hoppy smell with pine and a malty aroma that reminds me of sponge cake. Sweet and hoppy taste. High carbonation. Nice malt base with a nice piney hop aroma.

Can from Drinks of the World. A strong and powerful IPA, yet not ultimately refined. Quite fresh and grass-hoppy though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is fruity and grassy as expected, juicy hops and quite a lot of malty backbone shine through. Taste is fruity and with a more classic hop-profile. Sweet oranges, a little earthy and a pretty solid malt body, in the end there ’s a lingering pine bitterness. Very well executed IPA with some more weight towards the classic feel but still being modern.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: October 25, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... OCCASION: A busy weekend concludes with a beer much suggested in my beer circles... APPEARANCE: thick, frothing white head rolls out the can with vibrancy, despite my average pour; the head holds steady, displaying sponge-like spacing; the body is clear, copper-amber in color and understated in it effervescence... AROMA: beautifully clean spruce scent to start; grapefruit and floral overtones also demand attention... PALATE: smooth, medium-bodied, lively enough to encourage sips in bunches; finish is pleasant, light, and sustained... TASTE: grapefruit and spruce, as the nose suggests; the caramel rounds almost to an ESB quality, before dovetailing back to the hoppiness befitting an IPA... this manages to be an understated, respectful IPA... OVERALL: a Beer Advocate thread lead me to this, and although the beer does not develop the tiger stripes it aspires to-at least in my glass--it fulfills the flavor pedigree others have suggested; the caramel really distinguishes the Bengali from other IPAs...
