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 hopsÖ 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 aromaÖ 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; itís the mark of the Tiger.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a murky orange-caramel color with a huge fluffy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was dryish, tangy, perfumey and floral. The flavor was bitter, tangy and dry with a light nutty undertone and moderate floral and earthy hops. Long, dry, bitter and perfumey finish. Medium body. Eh.

Pours a nice amber. Nose is of hops, citrus and floral. Similar flavor profile with a bitter bite finish. I have had better from them and it is a pretty standard bitter IPA.

hivemind (693) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 8, 2011
Finally rating one of my go-to NY IPAs. This particular glass is from a growler filled at 9th Ave Vintners in Manhattan. Deep orange (hence the name?) and huey pour with minimal head and no lacing on the glass. Some carbonation lost at time of rating as the growler is not fresh anymore. Floral and bready nose, very hoppy taste with not much else coming through. Probably boring if youíre not all about hopiness/IPAs, but I think itís solid at this point as Iím just discovering different hop profiles.

Can: The aroma consists of oranges, grapefruit, and a touch of tropical fruit. It pours a mostly transparent amber with a touch of haze and a small yellow tinged off-white head. The flavor starts with light tropical fruit, some sort of spice, and a touch of caramel. The finish has moderate citrus and mild grapefruit. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, decent but thereís a strange spiciness that Iím not a big fan of.

RickTStiles (660) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2011
pours clear dark amber with a thin white head and lots of stripey lacing. aroma is baking soda with a hint of hops. taste has a cat piss quality to it in addition to pine and citrus. finish is bitter. This is an odd beer. it seems well made but there is a strong, unpleasant quality to it.

Reddish amber colour with small off-white head. Darkish fruity hoppy aroma with bitterness, grapefruit, pine and resin. Bitter hoppy flavour. Resin and some maltiness. Balanced. Bitter aftertaste. Very enjoyable IPA.

A: The beer pours a cloudy light amber color with a huge white head that sticks to the glass. S: This is an IPA? Very...bland aroma. Mostly bread and pale malts with just a hint of floral hops and maybe some tea. Just a little bit of citrus peel and thatís about it. T: The flavor is similarly unremarkable. There is a light bitterness and just a bit of grassy and floral hops. Mild citrus peel notes and a little bit of tea here, too. M: Medium in body with the carbonation just on the low side of medium. O: Amazingly bland for an IPA. Iíve had some pretty decent beers from Sixpoint, so this was a bit of a letdown for me.

So I been seeing this beer in cans and being sold in MA now, plus i saw a few beertubers i follow rating it, so I bought one of their 4 packs. I have been told this has become a wildly popular beer in NYC where it is brewed. It pours a orange color (tiger orange?) with an impressive foamy head. plenty of tight bubbles rising from the center of my pint glass. First and foremost of aromas is pine, not just pine needles or resin but also some pine wood to be honest. dough malt smell behind that. I can feel the carbonation up front on the tongue and the bread malt hits first followed my a medium bitter and sweetness, finishing tongue tieing bitterness. A well balanced ipa.
