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.

can. clear orange with a large, can poured, foamy white head. candy-like sweet, fruity, hop nose. flavor is well balance with fruity and floral hop notes. a large amount of low alpha hops. medium bodied with plenty of malt sweetness and light toasted bread. a low-ish amount of carbonation adds to the drinkability.

Can. Pours very lightly hazy copper with a large, foamy and frothy off-white eggshell head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is earthy and spicy rye malt, herbal and spicy hops with citrus notes, and light peach and apricot fruity esters. Flavor is heavy hops and moderate bitterness, dry supporting rye and cracker malt with light fermentation fruity esters, balanced toward hops, and a dry finish with a lightly spicy and citrus pith aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation, light alcohol warmth, no creaminess or astringency.

Had this out of the tall boy can. I was surprised by the malty flavor based on a citrus like aroma. Pours with a decent head from a can. I love citrus ipas...I was intrigued by this beer’s overall balanced flavor and clean, crisp finish.

I tasted this beer last summer at Kennebunkport and it has a strong hoppy taste in the best IPA tradition with good lasting finish. A good session ale. Can I buy it in the UK?

I’ve never consumed perfume before but I would imagine it to taste like this beer, which is way over the top too sweet.

Patrickctenchi (6096) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Can: Pours hazy orange-amber with a tall, chunky, off-white head. Sweet orange aroma, florals. Taste is strong orange peel...a nice steady bitter. Some pine and caramel. Very soft and smooth.

Hazy gold. Aroma is sweet, citrusy, pine, and even a little floral. Flavor is definitely an IPA - clean bitter with some pine, grapefruit, and caramel. Excellent.

Cybercat (5171) - Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Comes out of the tap a beautiful clear amber - not much in the way of the off-white head, but that is an artifact of the pour. Aroma is not too strong, but fruity and hoppy, rather inviting. Strong flavor is quite hoppy, rather bitter, better than what the aroma promised. Malty flavor has a firm hoppy, woody overtone and a fruity underpinning that has apple and orange notes. Texture is about average in the thickness and fizz department. Roar, tiger, roar!

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2013 Big orange/grapefruit nose, bright tangerine color. So I was expecting a big citrus taste and instead got a maltier one. It’s an interesting change of pace, even if I still prefer strong citrus and bitterness in my IPAs. Very pleasant aftertaste, tangy and wet.
