Caramel malt, citrus, and spice in the aroma. Flavor starts with bread, malt, spice, and hop bitterness. Finish is long and smooth with some citrus. Definitely not a typical American IPA, but it really works.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is a beautiful balance of pine, citrus, grass, and resin hops with sweet caramel malt. The appearance is golden with an amber hue and a big foamy head. The taste is quite better with some malt to balance but bordering on astringent. The palate is average. Overall a nice try if you like IPA’s.

"Strides forward with a malty cadence, then leaps with a wave of bitterness. Slashed with a giant paw of citrus, pine, and resin!" This is what they say and i would have to agree great beer a must try!

I didn’t know what I was getting into when I pulled this off the shelf. Sixpoint was a new brewery to me at the time, but they are one of my favorites now. Bengali really struck me with its very flavorful yet clean palate. I was overwhelmed with the amazing mouth feel and excellent flavors that came through. A real winner.

Can. Pours brilliant orange with soapy one-finger white head. Nice lacing. Nose is orange and a bit of mandarin right up front, but with a garlicky, savory note underneath (Simcoe hops?). Sweet onion, spice and teriyaki. Taste is a little more straightforward, with bitter hop astringency and bright citrus. Hint of pine. Solid stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice orange, copper color from a 16oz can with lingering lacing and a medium head. The aroma and flavor are full of sweet citrus. The flavor begins sweet and ends surprisingly bitter. The palate on this beer seems a little thin to me, but otherwise it is a very interesting beer that is worth checking out. The strong bitter citrus in this IPA make it stand out from the others. Went very well with my homemade chicken tikka masala.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
16 ounce can. Hazy amber orange liquid topped by a small beige head. Peppery roasted malt aroma leads to a herbal hop nose. Interesting spicy malt flavor hints at black tea, tarragon and toasted almonds. Nicely balanced hop finish is both piney and spicy with juniper undertones. Very complex and flavorful. definately not West Coast. More balanced.

Hoppy with lots of caramel malts. I get the piny notes that one would expect. Different, reminiscent of an English ipa. Palate is a little dry. Flavoe is sweet with a bitter finish.
