COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s our old favorite, Bengal Gold IPA, only amplified by a factor of X. More malt, more hops, more strength.

growler fill from the princeton location - pour is deep amber, orange. Nice citrus peel nose. Crystalline, caramel sugar, honey brown sugar, pears and plum fruits. thick, luscious mouthfeel & slick. Finish is resinous and big piney hop. Astringency lingers at the back of the tongue.

Damico (2355) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2010
The aroma is smooth with citrus and hops dominating. The color is deep amber clear with a small head. The flavor of bittering hops gradually comes in and takes over, but not biting or overbearing.

kramer (4687) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2010
On tap, Philly location. Pours a dark copper, clear, with a small beige head. The nose is big and bright with citrusy hops and a caramel malt base. The flavor is nicely bitter and citrusy with some caramel malt forming the backbone, but mostly staying out of the way of the hops. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation, a little resiny stickiness. Really nice beer, easily the pick of the litter on the day that I visited.

neuromatt (1016) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2010
On tap at the Triumph Brewing Company in Philadelphia, served in a shaker. Pours hazy amber-orange with a generous frothy tan head. Head slowly fades to a thin cover but leaves good lace. On the nose, it has the typical American double IPA aroma. Lots of grapefruit, with pine and resin and a bit of spice and pine. There is also a fair bit of alcohol and acid apparent. The taste is bitter up front, but it becomes even more so as it develops. The finish is long and super-hoppy, with a touch of malt. On the palate, it is medium in body with a milky texture and moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a decent double IPA. It is not as strong as is typical of the style, but this is not necessarily a bad thing. 2010-08-02

Draught at Philadelphia brewpub. Nice floral aroma. Well balanced IPA with some hint of alcohol. Malts. Hops flavor and don’t dominate. Well done.

Arayaga2 (1754) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 16, 2010
Amber with a thin white head. Aroma is mildly herbal with a bit of grass. Taste is mild for style and a tad tangeriney with a bit of grass. Not a favorite.

GT2 (7875) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUN 16, 2010
Tap at Triumph. Probably my least favorite of the samples. It pours a clear, light orange with a rocky, off-white head that has very good sheety lace. Aroma is candy, melons, tropical hops. Taste is sweet, a bit syrupy, medicinal, rich in herbal hops, resinous hops. Decent.
