Picked up a 4-pack of this at The Vault in Lewiston on Friday as they started to stock the Sixpoint Resin, Bengali Tiger and Apollo. Susan is working hard to improve her craft beer selection and has hired a beer guy to help staff the store and choose some new beer. If you have not checked out the store recently you should stop by.
Bengali Tiger is Sixpoint’s IPA (Resin is their Double IPA) and this one comes in 16 oz cans instead of the 12 oz cans that Resin comes in. The beer pours a nice deep orange color with thick white head. Plenty of aroma coming from this one mostly orange and a bit of malt. Taste has lots of hops; pine, citrus, floral character with a malt finish to balance things out. Very easy to drink and refreshing. Really enjoying my Sixpoint purchases.

Alcohol Content: 6.4% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): 62

Brewers Description: What immortal hand or eye. Could frame thy fearful symmetry? The Sixpoint homebrewed IPA interpretation. Blaze orange in color, with an abundance of citrus hop bitterness, and a full pine and grapefruit bouquet in the aroma.
