Pretty strong IPA...pours caramel, translucent. Piney up front wiht a bitter crisp end. Malt body tastes like it has some rye to it; it’s substantial without being over powering. Good dry finish.

Nice, well-balanced IPA. Good citrus, and some decent malt backbone. Pours orange with good head and lacing. Light bitter finish. Tap at some bar in D.C. after a concert the other day.

Pours a coppery orange, lacy white head. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, toast and caramel malts. Taste is lightly floral, citrusy hops. Lots of caramel, toasty malts. I can appreciate the balance, but I’m more of a fan of west coast style IPAs. Medium heavy mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Good for a change of pace with IPAs, but not going to become one of my go to IPAs

12oz can. Appearance: Crystal clear golden with a moderate white foam head.
Aroma: Typical citrus and resinous hop, with a bit of herbal, earthy notes.
Taste: Rich crystal malt sweetness with a sharp but balanced bitterness. Malt base makes this beer more balanced than a typical American IPA.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, slightly higher than a typical IPA, with moderate carbonation.
Finish: Well balanced malt/bitter finish that leaves more of a citrusy/herbal finish than true bitterness.
Overall: This beer seems to be a balance of American and English IPAs. Citrus and pine resin aromas dominate, but overall shows the balance and finish of an English IPA. Has more malt character than a west coast IPA that leads to a well rounded IPA

This was "Bengali", which is described here as a alternate name for the "Bengali Tiger", but which represents a recipe change from when I had a Bengali Tiger. This was 6.5% and had much more bittering hops on the finish. Was definitely not as good as the 6.4% Bengali Tiger I first had - seemed less balanced. Rich sweet malt background up front, but this new recipe seemed to have a less pleasant and somehow disjointed hop dry finish. Bit of a shame.

[Can] Lighter shade of amber with about a half inch of white colored head. Aromas of grapefruit, orange and pine needles. Flavors of caramel, floral hops, toasted bread, restrained resinous notes and some toffee. Lingering dry and bitter finish. Pretty good.
