Brewer: Sixpoint Craft: Bengali ABV: 6.5%
This is not the first time I’ve had this craft. Nor will it be the last. Sixpoint says that “beer is culture”. Well call me Pearl cause I like being cultured. Actually, don’t call me Pearl. That would just be weird. But you can call me a fan of this craft. See what I did there?
For me, Bengali is up there with Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA. I know. Big shoes. But this IPA has a solid hop presence throughout. You can feel it on your tongue. It lingers there. As it should. And then the caramel flavor builds. Smooths it out. I also get some subtle orange and apple notes too. Maybe that’s just me. But the sweetness is just a kiss. Just enough to keep you coming back for another sip.
Sixpoint calls what they do “Mad Science”. I call it delicious refreshment. If you’re looking for another IPA to try, this is a wise choice. Not many IPAs as simple as this craft are as good as it is.
Rating: Get a six-pack…and then get another one
