Sixpoint turned my world upside down when I first tasted Resin. It REALLY raised the bar for Imperial IPA's that are regularly available in Melbourne. The name Bengali isn't as evocative as Resin, but the aroma that jumped out as soon as I cracked the can made it clear this is a serious IPA.

A - Pours with a rocky white head that leaves sticky lacing as it settles to a thin cap. Beer colour is a slightly yellowy orange. It's a nice colour, but could be a little more vibrant and slightly clearer. 4.5

S - Fresh, lots of green hop aromas mixed with some tropical fruit and pine, and pale malt. 4

T - Fresh green hops again, a touch of malt, and a surprising alcoholic bite right at the end. 3.5

M - Balanced. The carbonation lifts the mouthfeel just enough to make the sweet malt pop, which is spot on for an IPA in my opinion. Bitterness is pronounced, as it should be in an IPA. 4.5

O - A great IPA that I feel should be served cold to emphasise its crisp, hoppy attributes and minimise the alcoholic and bitter notes.

Outstanding beer from a 330ml can, if there is a draft version I would cut off one of my legs to try it. Truly world class IPA.

Looks great in a glass with a tall pillowy head.
Smells very fresh from the can.
Flavor is less citrusy and a little more bitter than I expected from the aroma.
Goes down very easy. I paired it with Indian food and it was a perfect match.
These guys at Sixpoint are making me a fan!
