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.

Hoppy with lots of caramel malts. I get the piny notes that one would expect. Different, reminiscent of an English ipa. Palate is a little dry. Flavoe is sweet with a bitter finish.

[16fl oz can] Golden orange beer with a decent white head. Citrus and slightly musty malt nose combine to give an aroma of expired orange Ė the kind of whiff you get from a fruit bowl left in the sun. Has more caramel sweetness on the flavour than I was expecting, it balances quite well with the bitter orange citrus on the taste [15052012]

Poured from can into pint glass. Reddish amber with no head. Almost no smell. Nice malty start, with an almost violent transition to hoppiness. Citrus and dandelion flavors. Clean, slightly sticky finish.

Poured from a 16 ounce can into a Duvel tulip, best before January 29, 2013.

A: Clear amber body with fine carbonation coming from the nucleation point, a thick rocky off-white head leaves a mess on the glass. This is a great looking beer!

S: The aroma here has decent presence with a mildly sweet profile highlighting some citrus and some spice to it. Smells like a great balanced IPA!

T: A slightly spicy hop presence starts the beer and goes through to the finish with some pine and citrus hop notes as well. There is a fairly sweet malt base that keeps the hops in check making this a rather mildly bitter IPA despite a good hop presence. The beer finishes nice and dry. This is a well balanced beer, an IPA done right!

M: Medium body with fine carbonation, goes down easy.

O: I really enjoy this beer, itís hard to find faults in it. This is one of the best balanced IPAs Iíve had in recent memory and itís very refreshing. Itís also nice to see this sort of hop profile after the American styled IPAs Iíve been drinking. This is also a good value IPA, go out and buy it!

Can, pour copper/orange with medium off white head. Aroma is sweet with tropical fruits, pineapple, some grapefruit. Taste is like aroma with some sweet maltyness. Very drinkable, nothing special but still very drinkable and pleasant.

On tap at Sugar Maple. Orange amber with an off-white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel and fruit. Taste is balanced and could use a few more hops. Citrus, caramel and a bit of pine come through. Mild bitterness on the finish.

milewide (1778) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2012
No hop kick for an IPA. Average fruity aroma and taste, with little hop bitterness. Slightly cloudy orange color, with modest head. MI has 10 better IPAs, at lower prices!

NachlamSie (3022) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 2, 2012
4 pack of cans best before August 8 ,2012 from Liquor Barn Louisville. Pours orange with a white head. Nice resinous, citrusy aroma. Itís sort of like Resin light, maybe not as grapefruity. The palate on Bengali is fizzy and dry. Good, even hoppiness throughout the flavor. Very clean. Sixpoint is doing some good things for cans everywhere.
