COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sixpoint Bengali Tiger is reminiscent of the century-old English IPA. In my perspective, many current IPAs suffer from lacking substance; unbalanced by a hoppy assertiveness that is not substantiated by a strong foundation of rich malt flavors. Our interpretation uses the highest-quality, floor-malted base malt, which lends a full-bodied and rich caramel flavor. We mash at high temperatures and add generous amounts of specialty malts to further emphasize a strong foundation of malt as leverage for our generous additions of hops… Which are indeed generous. We use a total of three different hop strains, and add a total of six different additions throughout the process. The Bengali Tiger has a hoppy snap upfront, but strides at a steady pace, and finishes balanced. The signature characteristic of the Tiger is the aroma… we use massive quantities of whole East Kent Goldings hops to dry hop in our conditioning tanks. The result? The essential oils from the hops are an enticing treat before every sip. Notice the lacing of stripes around the pint glass as you finish your glass; it’s the mark of the Tiger.

Aroma is suddley hoppy, tiny citrus and a touch of caramel in the nose. Very hoppy bite on the first sip, calms way down and becomes more malty, caramel and floral flavors dominate this beer. A very good take on an English ipa.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2015 Daft at JoJo’s taphouse in Frederick, MD. Served in a Sam Adams lager glass (ugh), light orange color with a finger of white head. Aroma of citrus/piney hops and caramel malt. Taste is more bitter hoppiness then hop flavor, somewhat unbalanced. Light body, medium carbonation, dry. Some lingering bitterness. Good in a pinch.

Can, at home. Hazy orange pour. Super pungent aroma, of fresh green hops with floral and piney overtones. Fresh and bright and bitter throughout, with tropical fruit coming through on the finish. False advertising on the "strong foundation of rich malt flavors". In fact, the malt struggles to hold up the impressive and highly aromatic dry hopping.

16 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured a cloudy amber with a little off white head. Great aroma strong on piney hops, and citrus fruits. Taste is complex starts with very strong hoppiness that kinds of sweetens towards the end and even feels a bit watery but keep a very nice bitterness. Very good and easy to drink.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Nice pale ale with a solid hop profile and a bit of citrus. Not sure the malt profile is as prominent as advertised but pretty tasty on the whole. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz. can explodes with tropical fruit, resin, pine, juicy and just super hoppy right from the tab. Pours pale light orange with a creamy off-white head. Taste is strongly bitter but the high level of sweetness totally undercuts that good bitterness, some of the hop oils remain to stick out underneath, floral notes flower, little packets of orange jam sans Schrippe, but otherwise classic dry hopping with a mix of something close to Cascade and dank EKG. Cleans the palate moderately well, malt is thin and unremarkable. Medium-fullish body. I’d hold this up as an example of how canning preserves (dry hopping) freshness better than bottles, as this is fresh to the point of being almost green, but there are (better!) beers with a stronger malt backbone.

At a tasting, thanks David D., small creamy head, clear deepish orange colour, aroma of pine, orange marmalade, and some tropical fruits and bread in the back, flavour of orange marmalade, citrus and some biscuity malt, medium mellow herbal bitterness and just a touch too sweet but still quite balanced. Very nice.

I seem to be in the minority in finding that this beer is too overwhelmingly hoppy for my taste. I will try to be objective nonetheless. Pours a very hazy orange-copper color. Half inch head dissipates quickly and has virtually no lacing. Scent is slightly on the hoppy side but provides no warning of what the taste holds in store. Upon tasting, the taste of hops is overpowering and overwhelming. I found it difficult to discern other flavors above this. If you enjoy a hoppy beer, this is the one for you I guess.

16 oz can: Pours light orange, slightly cloudy, thick white head and sticky on the side of the glass. Aroma of citrus and resinous hops; caramel malts. Taste is salty and bitter. Flavors of bready malts, resinous and citrus hops. Slightly thin, bitter finish, not the most fun to drink.
