Sixpoint's Bengali Tiger has seriously impressed me. After trying Sehr Crisp (The Crisp) a few days ago and being slightly underwhelmed, after having the first sip of Bengali Tiger I can firmly say that I have faith in Sixpoint. As a sidenote, I can't wait to try their Diesel Stout.
Has a rich, dark amber color. Slightly cloudy with bubbles steadily moving towards the top. Developed a lovely white two-finger head after pouring from the can into an Imperial Pint glass. The head probably stayed for a good three minutes before dissolving. This is a beautiful beer.
There's a strong floral scent, as well as a whiff of lemon or citrus. Overall it's not incredibly strong, but at the same time it's pleasing and gives you a bit of what to expect.
This is an excellent American IPA. The flavor is hard to pinpoint at first. It hits the tongue with a tangy and slightly sweet flavor, which then dissolves into a flowery/hoppy taste with a hint of pine and citrus again. The aftertaste is almost refreshing, tasting a bit like tree sap (don't let this put you off though, it's only tastes faintly of it and it's done really, REALLY well). Honestly, I have a hard time putting this beer down after I sip it, it really tastes that good.
Hits the tongue with a burst of flavor and carbonation, yet it manages to maintain this feeling the entire time you're tasting it. It doesn't feel like water or molasses when it's on your tongue; instead it feels like what a beer should feel like. Few beers I have had manage this good of a mouthfeel.
