Sixpoint Bengali is one of the finest examples of the modern American IPA brewed today. Starting as a homebrew concept from the founders of Sixpoint in 2004, the concept has developed over the years as new ingredients have become available and our own palates have evolved. The original beer was strikingly dry with little residual sweetness and a balancing bitterness from the best hops available to a couple of homebrewers. Years later, new yeast strains discovered and new hop varieties farmed, Bengali is still remarkably dry and has a rich fruit aroma and flavor from the modern hop combinations, leaving little bitterness behind.
Pouring a radiant orange color with aggressive white head that leaves stripes of white lacing, it all of the sudden makes sense why this beer is named for a Tiger. The aroma wafting from the glass is loaded with sweet Valencia orange, dried lemon rinds, sticky tree branches, and hints of toasted oat bread. The flavor explodes with bittersweet flavors like that of a ripe yellow grapefruit, a juicy tangerine - skin and all, or a green leafed lemon. The bitterness is just enough to balance with the biscuity malt character, keeping the beer dry and easy to drink.
Sixpoint Bengali may be brewed in New York, but it is a sure fire challenger to any of the picture perfect IPAs grown alongside their own hops in the Pacific Northwest. The fact that it comes in a easy to handle slim can just makes it that much more of a winner. Enjoy this beer by the six pack at tailgates, picnics, backyard bbqs, or late night dance parties. Pair it with well aged, crystallized gouda, fatty duck sausages, or a bacon laced mac & cheese.
