4.4/5 rDev +12%
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.

$ 1.99/12 oz can at Vintage Estates, Boardman, OH
Can BB 08May15 at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Head small (2 cm), off white, frothy, slowly diminishing to a broken 2 - 4 mm layer
Lacing excellent – complete thick rings and stalactites of mostly small bubbles
Body medium yellow, hazy
Flavor begins with a fairly light piney hop presence which fades to a somewhat chalky bitterness with a short hang time. No malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, slightly oily, lively carbonation
Another pretty good beer from Sixpoint.
