16oz can, best before 17 Feb 2013.
A: Somewhat cloudy golden hued with an ample, frothy white head. Turns chunky after a while.
S: A faint smell of grapefruit rind upon a deep inhale. Not much more.
T: Tastes off, bitter with no sweetness on the tongue and no semblance of balance on the palate. Neither an IPA on the malty side like Celebration, balanced like Blind Pig or a hop assault like Racer 5. Hard to call it too hoppy, too bitter or anything...simply off.
M: Nothing redeeming about the flavors that coat the taste buds or the aftertaste.
O: This version of Bengali Tiger, the only one I've had, is a distinctly below average beer, ale and IPA. I was in Brooklyn in July of this year and enjoyed some Sweet Action, both canned and on draft. A recent move from California to Texas has its ups and downs beer wise, but I was psyched to see Sixpoint arrive around the same time. Sweet Action tasted fine and Resin was even better, but this? A near drain-pour for this last of the cans in the four-pack.

$ 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.
