A solid IPA. Not mind-blowing, but dependable. Citrus upfront (maybe clementine or tangelo) overpowers the light pine to come. Also has a strong hint of spiciness with some orange rind. Would be appreciated on a warm day. (It's snowing right now). The finish is rye.
If you care for more review....

Poured from a can into a Delerium noël tulip glass. Can says best by 23 Oct. 2015 (enjoyed on January 27, 2015).

Pours orange with a thick, white head. The head didn't last forever, but it didn't immediately subside either.

The mouthfeel, to me, at this very moment, seemed a wee bit watery. Again, in warm weather, I could see a contradicting review from my very own senses. This beer came after two Lagunitas IPAs (a usual favorite of mine that came off a little flat for me today).
Aside from that, I was also very impressed a few months ago with the Sixpoint Resin (the reason I considered buying Bengali) and comparing a double IPA to an IPA could have me a bit Jaded. It's snowy, wet, and cold out. Perhaps I should have made the seasonal switch back to syrupy,
thick, roasted Imperial Russian Stouts by now.

Can poured into Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours a golden orange with big foamy head. Resilient blotches of lacing. Citrus hop aroma. Light-bodied, flat feel. Very solid IPA. From what I recall of Bengali Tiger, I like this version of Sixpoint's IPA more. For folks like me who tend to prefer DIPAs over conventional IPAs, this is a great lower ABV substitute. Has sessionable qualities. (9.25)

Their best by date of 1 year is ridiculous. This beer wasn't bad for the age but at 3 months old, no ipa can hold up to what it should taste like at <6 weeks. 3 ,onus should be the industry ipa standard bbd for Ina's and iipa's.
