this beer is not for the amateur beer drinker.while not as strong as the sierra nevada extra ipa, it is called bengali tiger for a reason if your not a fan of ipa’s then pass on this one. it’s extra hoppy flavor pairs well with spicy food and surprisingly red meat.

Orange pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is sticky, resinous, hoppy, a little dank. Flavor is sweet, slightly creamy, bitter. Really bitter but smooth. Good beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from mellow mushroom. Decent nose but novelty of an ipa in a can wears off quick. Hoppy but not all that great. Too dry.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location/Date:Can on August 26th, 2012.
Appearance: Pours an orange copper cloud.
Aroma: Aroma of hay malt, faint citrus.
Taste: Medium bitterness, nice amount of bite, hay malt, faint caramel.
Palate:Medium body, average aftertaste for style.
Summary: Despite the description of having lots of English hops, this beer is pretty solid for somebody used to American style IPAs. Fairly enjoyable for the style.

Clear amber with a foamy cream colored head and moderate lacing. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruit, toast, and caramel. Fruity, and pretty malty sweet with a nice balancing bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth, and a little dry.

Honesty this isn’t balanced at all really. Nicely hopped, nice bitterness. Citrusy. A good one.
