Can. All the way across the desk, I can smell tangerines, pomelo, and mild herbs like marjoram. Pours a dark gold/orange. The hops bitterness is nicely balanced with a round, orangey malt. Finishes a touch astringent, with just a hint of band-aid -- for me, the finish is the weakest part of the beer. Good.

Deese. Some piney notes. A little fruity. A good amount of malt balance but a little low on the hoppiness for my taste in an IPA.

Pours clear, oily orange with a large off-white head. Smells of big floral notes with some solid citrus and sweet orange. Taste is floral, bitter oranges, and pine. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Sixpoint Bengali Tiger finishes with lingering bitterness.

Good overall beer. Citrusy hops meets a moderate-light malty flavor. Dry. High white head with an amber gold coloring. Sparkling carbonation. Lovely beer. Nice hoppy bitterness. Aroma is mild, but the flavor does come out with the bitterness.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2012 Canned.... This is great! I love the mark of the tiger it leaves on your glass. Smells wonderfully piney and hoppy with some elements of fruit with a pow of malt. The appearance is cloudy and golden brown. Strong and lasting bitterness. Great balance between bitter and sweet. A must buy.

From can. Apples in aroma, clear amber, definitely a more English style IPA, an amber ale, lacking hop citrus and presence. Some bread like traditional boring English IPAs. OK, but I do not want another and am not an English IPA fan.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a growler into a snifter.
Aroma: strong floral hops scent. Very enjoyable.
Appearance: orange-amber color with a thin white head. Decent lacing throughout the glass.
Taste: a bit malty. Slightly hoppy. Relatively dull.
Palate: needs more carbonation. Could be the pour, but I don’t think it’s a problem with the growler, I just got it a few hours ago.
Overall: not a bad IPA. I am hoping the remainder of the growler isn’t so flat and I just messed up my pour somehow.
