3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 oz can pours a cloudy orange with long lasting beige head and stripes of lacing (as advertised). Aroma is full of citrus and piney hops with light caramel malts and some hay. Taste is sweet at first, with a long, dry hoppy finish. Body is light to medium. Mouthfeel is sticky and creamy, with just enough carbonation. A decent IPA, and the best offering from SixPoint I have tried so far.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2013 Re-rate 2/6/13: Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks tomer. Fresh, fruity, citric and floral hops, a bit "green" and a bit of caramelly malt. Lovely. 8/3/7/3/15=3.6
Bottle. Hazy deep orange-amber color with a quickly-diminishing medium white head. Nice lacing. Pleasant aroma of piney, resinous and grapefruity hops. Flavor has some chewy malt, somewhat sweet, a bit caramelly, and big resinous and piney hops bitterness with a grapefruit note in the aftertaste. Medium-bodied. A good IPA. 8/3/7/3/14=3.5

Can. Pours a nice orangey color with nice, white head and decent retention. Piney-citrus hops on the nose, citrus and pineapple on the palate, very nice IPA and a lot better than the other Sixpoint offerings I’ve had so far.

this beer is not for the amateur beer drinker.while not as strong as the sierra nevada extra ipa, it is called bengali tiger for a reason if your not a fan of ipa’s then pass on this one. it’s extra hoppy flavor pairs well with spicy food and surprisingly red meat.
