Soooo I’ve been bad. I broke the post streak and I won’t lie to you, I missed a day of not trying a new beer. I could make excuses and I should (since I actually have an awesome excuse for once) but I won’t. I will just pick up where I left off.
Tonight’s April Dirty Thirty beer is…
Sixpoint Bengali Tiger Ale
- 6.4% ABV
- 62 IBUs
- 13 SRM
Poured from can into pint glass. It has an orange color and is mostly transparent. It has a large, puffy white head that clings to the glass.
It has an aroma of fresh hops and is citrus-y.
It’s bitter, then hoppy, then bitter again. It’s straw-like (is that something??) and has a hint of grapefruit.
– FOOD PAIRING
Gouda cheese or Peruvian chicken. Fried yuca anyone?
– OVERALL THOUGHTS
Disappointed. I’ve been seeing the Beer Advocate guys and some bloggers running around touting Sixpoint. I still really want to try 3Beans but didn’t enjoy tonight’s Bengali Tiger that much.
