look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

I like the tall boy can. The beer was served in a Imperial Pint glass.

A- The body of the beer is a slightly hazy orange coloration. The head of the beer is thick about 2.5 fingers high with a biege coloration. Nice head retention noted. Thin rings of lacing mark this beers departure.

S- The aroma of the beer is subdued pine notes rolling into mild grapefruit caramel sweetened breadyness.

T- The flavor of the beer leads with sweet caramel maltyness. Pine and a brief citrus twang suck the maltyness into a bitter finish.

M- The body of the beer is creamy with moderate carbonation. Nice long lasting bitter notes in the flavor.

O- Not a bad beer drinking experience but this is not a beer I will seek again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

16oz. can poured into a tumbler glass

A- a Hazy orange/gold/amber, with a fluffy, thick egg shell head. Great lacing down the glass.

S- Complex hops, citric than is mostly orange and tangerine, a bit of grapefruit, a little piney, and certainly smelling some simcoe hops as well. Underlying is a mild biscuity malt base with Sixpoint's yeast there as well

T- A Piney/Citric bite up front with some astringency from the simcoe transitions into a bit of malty sweetness, but then again transitions into an almost perfect finish of the earthy hop component, a bit of citrus, and a slightly sweet, but bitter and slightly dry finish.

M- Medium bodied, perfectly carbonated, and the dry finish is perfect, and not overpowering

O- One of the finest IPA's I've ever had. I really enjoy Bengali because it's different than most of the West Coast and Midwest IPA's out there. Certainly has it's own flavor profile, which is pretty fantastic. I also appreciate the restrained nature of the simcoe in this brew. I think simcoe can overpower easily, but when used correctly, adds a very nice dimension to the beer.

4.03/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden orange in color with a big 1.5 finger tall light beige head. The head reduces to a very thick layer over the entire surface of the beer with some thicker patches and an even thicker ring at the edges of the glass. There is some very significant lacing observed.

S: Lots and lots of hoppy aromas are present in this beer which has an intense smell. You can detect lots of citrus as well as pine/resin hops in the aroma which makes the beer very inviting to me.

T: Follows the aroma but the bitterness is not as intense as I might have expected based on the intensity of the smell. There is a nice complexity to the flavor with lots of citrus and pine/resin hop characteristics coming through.

M: Medium to full bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly sticky.

O: This is a really nice affordable every day IPA for me, the flavors are complex enough and delicious. This is a sessionable beer and something I like to pair with spicy Asian food - a regularly appearing beer in my fridge. I really enjoyed the smell of this beer as well.

3.73/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass. The color is orange, almost amber. There is a nice sticky off-white head.

There is a nice spicy hop aroma that emphasizes pine.

The taste is dry and crisp. There is some spicy hop flavor in the finish, being crisp and bitter.

The carbonation is smooth and bubbly. This goes well with the light body.

This is pretty good. Make sure it's really fresh, because I imagine there isn't much malt flavor under those hops.
