SixPoint - Bengali Tiger - 16fl oz

Look - Can means business. Pours a hazy darker amber and then settles. Full, frothy head. Negligible carbonation.

Smell - Hops over malt, some citrus pine. Scent is overall subtle.

Taste - Tart malty bite with hoppiness around the outside. Spice, citrus (pine), and resin abound.

Mouthfeel - Once the initial wave passes, hops rest on the sides. Citrus (pine) and resin rest in the back of your throat. Smooth but hearty.

Overall - Quite a unique and flavorful brew. One of SixPoint's finer brews.

16 oz. orange and silver can. Best before printed on bottom.

A: Pours a murky orange/amber with a large off-white head.
Tiger strip lacing after the initial head goes down, which
leads to a more erratic lacing after. Blotchy retention.

S: Thronging with fresh pine, citric and fruity hops. Some
solid malt is also present.

T/M: Juicy citric, hops of pine, malt flavor, bready, possible
grapefruit, more hops now which seem stickier. The feel is
pretty light and creamy. The finish is surprisingly clean. This
is nice and really compliments the bitter citric hops.

O: An exceptional IPA from sixpoint. Could be my favorite of
all their offerings (so far). Really pleasant hopy/citric taste.
With an even better feel. This makes for great drinkability.
