Falls right into line of what you’d expect from a “standard” IPA - nice balance of hops / malt, mild bitterness, some broad tropical / citrus and a semi-bitter finish.

Got a pint on tap at Timothy’s in Newark Delaware. Nice looking beer and was very smooth to drink. I smelled and tasted pine but missed the citrus. This beer was fine with food but didn’t stand out to me. Not bitter.

Deep orange in color with very good clarity. Poured with a moderate, creamy, off-white foam with medium retention. Light tropical and pine aromas with medium caramel maltiness. Medium bodied with medium light carbonation. Creamy smooth feel through the middle followed by prickly warmth at the end. Earthy hop flavors that quickly transition to sticky pine hoppiness. Medium sweet malt and caramel malt flavors. Medium high bitterness through the middle. Earthy hop and orange peel flavors with malt and expanding boozy warmth from the middle to the end. Finished semi-dryly with caramel and piney flavors and lingering piney hop bitterness. Hop aromas were a bit light. Great smooth feel. Intense bitterness nicely balanced the solid malty base.

Overall a smooth and solid ipa. Light nose. Smooth, not sharp, opening. Smoother than bitterer close. Solid.

This is one of my go to local brewers as a New Yorker. The Bengali (formerly Bengali Tiger) looks, smells and tastes as an ideal American IPA should. The clear sense of pine is apparent in both the nose and the mouth with some orange citrus notes on the palate as well. This is an ideal ABV for an Am IPA and I keep coming back for more.

12oz canned 9/14/18 (77 days ago) poured into a Sixpoint tulip pint glass at fridge temp 6.6% ABV. The beer pours mostly bright honey colored amber with sticky off white head. The head recedes to a thin cap and leaves plenty of lacing. The aroma is slight candied orange and pine. The taste is semisweet caramel, candied orange, pine and tropical fruit. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, adequately carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. There is a little hop oil slickness and the finish is medium plus in bitterness. Overall, very good. I always enjoy this fresh when I get the chance.

Is good, but nothing out of the ordinary or special. Thing is, with so many IPA's available, and so many being good and similar to one another, unless an IPA is absolutely fantastic or downright horrendous, there's not much point of reviewing.
