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.

Since six point has arrived in Ohio Iíve been trying all i can, this one is another malty IPA with a dank balance of hops not bright and citrus.. Too bad

16 ounce can, best before 1 August 2012. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a cloudy golden/orange color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention is good, and thereís a lot of lacing left behind on the glass. Aroma is nice, but a bit weak. The brew smells like citrusy (grapefruit, orange) and pine hops, along with some grain and caramel malt. The taste is just like the aroma, but luckily the flavors are stronger compared to how it smells. Itís a sweeter tasting beer than I expected it to be, I thought the hop flavors would be stronger. With that being said, itís still a tasty brew. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit slick and creamy with good carbonation. I think itís a good overall brew. $8.99 a 4-pack.

Draft at Mad Mex, served in a pint glass. Pours a cloudy orange-amber with a small, lumpy off-white head. Sheet of lace. Aroma of grassy hops, crackery malts, dry grains, and mild spice. Flavor of spicy, earthy hops, floral notes, dry malts, sugar, and crackers. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, bitter, spicy mouthfeel. Decent IPA.

Canned. Golden colour, beige foamy head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is is very fruity and juicy with some mild minerals and some pleasant maltyness. Flavour is fruity and floral bitterness along with mild bready notes. Rather sweet malty body along with the big hoppyness as well.

Can 473ml (BB 07/2012)
From Whole Foods, NYC. Slightly hazy orange color, good creamy off-white head. Fresh citrusy-hayish aroma. Medium-bodied. Crisp. Piney and flowery hoppyness dominate flavor, some sweetish fruity malty notes. Feels more than 62 IBU. Long lingering bitterness.

nolankowal (937) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Nice IPA that gravitates more to a ESB profile than the Cali inspired IPAs of today. Orange, hazy with a creamy head, floral and light sweet cereal in the aroma. Dry and bitter throughout, more floral notes with citrus rind backed with a light malty sweetness. Lasting dry/bitter finish. Quite elegant.

Nice big foamy head on top of a deep gold amber color. Lacing follows. b Fresh hop and grapefruit citrus aroma. Hints of orange. Taste is bitter but you feel the malt in the back. Finish is clean with a slight bitter aftertaste. Fantastic brew!

Pours an unclear orange with a steady, one finger white head. Heavy citrus with a ton of grapefruit. Pretty good.

JStax (3446) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Poured from a can into a pint glass. Appearance is a huge, billowing head of white foam on top of a orange, copper beer. Great lacing. Aroma is very bland, if I were doing this blindly, i would guess that this is a hoppy pilsner. Sweet pilsner grains come through with just a presence of hopping. Bitterness is just a thought at this point. If I didnít know this was a brand new can, I would guess that it was just sitting on the shelf too long.

Can. Pours a nice golden orange color with a frothy white head. Aroma is quite hoppy with notes of ctirus, pine, herbal notes and resin along with some sweet malt. The flavor follows the aroma, fairly bitter with a nice hop profile, lots of citrus, some blood orange, pine, resin and the herbal notes backed by a sweet malt backbone. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a great example of an East Coast IPA!
