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.

Tap at the Cask Bar & Kitchen, Manhattan - 01/03/12. Reddish/amber colour with a very small head that didn’t hang around! Sweet floral hops backed up by citrus. Caramel malts in the taste with floral hop and a touch of citrus. Medium bodied with good level of bitterness. Decent IPA without getting too giddy in the ABV stakes!

Pours a clear light amber with a generous head. Nice aromas of floral hops in the nose. Taste is bitter floral, with some malt thrown in to balance it out. A decent if unremarkable ipa. I forced this one down dasilky1’s throat just because I felt like it.

had this treat after a day with brooklyn brews. hops were very piney from the get go and the bite was the same with hints of grass and earthiness. overall was a great IPA and reminded me of the cascadian hops

Draft at Old Chicago. Pours a fairly cloudy orange color with a nice head that lingers a bit. Aroma is a nice mix of hops and malt. Picking up flowers, pale malt, caramel malt, citrus and tropical fruit. Taste is fairly malty for an IPA but there is some nice hoppiness throughout. Very strong bitterness in the finish, a little too much. Still a very nice IPA with lots of flavor.

Light floral and strong resin hop aroma. Hazy orange color with a large white head. Light-moderate beginning building to a moderate-strong bitter middle that fades slowly in the finish.

Pours gold copper color, clean. Off white head. Pine nose with great citrus. Very light drinkable beer with perfect amount of bitterness for a session ipa.

can - Pours hazy orange with a small white head and a citrus hop aroma. This medium bodied brew has plenty of hops bitterness in the flavor with citrus and resin notes and a solid malt backing. Overall it’s a very good but not great IPA.

Pours a clear amber with a thick foamy head. Smells of resin, floral, herbs. Taste is sweet then bitter, maltiness up front followed by a sharp but not overpowering hop taste.

16oz can. Poured medium orange with a sticky, mostly white head. The aroma picked up earth, citrus, and grassy hoppage over soft bread and caramel malts.. a little warm on the back of the nose.. well-balanced. The flavor found biscuit and caramel maltage at the core, with grassy and citrus bitterness around.. sharp and kind of peppery on the long, grainy finish.. a bit harsh. Medium-bodied with rolling carbonation on the palate.. OK-ish balance, but it went downhill after the nose.
