Bengali Tiger

13oz pour at Sunset Grill & Tap, Boston (Allston), MA, USA. Delighted to find a beer on cask.
Orange-bronze, hazed pour with small amounts of carbonation, head and lace (obviously!)
Subtle hop notes make up the nose and the taste. Nothing overpowering here, and this is a welcome change of pace from double-this and triple-that. Certainly some light floral notes, but I get some really strong English hop influence here. I have NO idea which hops are actually used in this beer, but it seems low-key and built for flavor rather than effect – again pleasing.
Tasty brew indeed, and at 6.5% it feels good and goes down easy.
My first Sixpoint offering and if this is the standard then I am going to seek out plenty more. Super stuff.
