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.

Good overall beer. Citrusy hops meets a moderate-light malty flavor. Dry. High white head with an amber gold coloring. Sparkling carbonation. Lovely beer. Nice hoppy bitterness. Aroma is mild, but the flavor does come out with the bitterness.

Can pours light orange with a medium tan head. Tropical fruit aroma. Huge grassy malt and hops going on. Big tropical fruit notes as well. Enjoyable.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2012 Canned.... This is great! I love the mark of the tiger it leaves on your glass. Smells wonderfully piney and hoppy with some elements of fruit with a pow of malt. The appearance is cloudy and golden brown. Strong and lasting bitterness. Great balance between bitter and sweet. A must buy.

From can. Apples in aroma, clear amber, definitely a more English style IPA, an amber ale, lacking hop citrus and presence. Some bread like traditional boring English IPAs. OK, but I do not want another and am not an English IPA fan.

Poured from a growler into a snifter. Aroma: strong floral hops scent. Very enjoyable. Appearance: orange-amber color with a thin white head. Decent lacing throughout the glass. Taste: a bit malty. Slightly hoppy. Relatively dull. Palate: needs more carbonation. Could be the pour, but I donít think itís a problem with the growler, I just got it a few hours ago. Overall: not a bad IPA. I am hoping the remainder of the growler isnít so flat and I just messed up my pour somehow.

Deep amber pour with a rocky cream headí. Nose is a bouquet if florals, spicy, caramel, rich malts, and bitter. Very smooth on the palate, bitter, malts, dough, spices, and a grainy finish.

Poured from a can. Hazy orange with white head. Great aroma but lacking in hoppy taste. Decent ipa, nothing special

16 oz can pours a cloudy orange with long lasting beige head and stripes of lacing (as advertised). Aroma is full of citrus and piney hops with light caramel malts and some hay. Taste is sweet at first, with a long, dry hoppy finish. Body is light to medium. Mouthfeel is sticky and creamy, with just enough carbonation. A decent IPA, and the best offering from SixPoint I have tried so far.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2013 Re-rate 2/6/13: Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks tomer. Fresh, fruity, citric and floral hops, a bit "green" and a bit of caramelly malt. Lovely. 8/3/7/3/15=3.6

Bottle. Hazy deep orange-amber color with a quickly-diminishing medium white head. Nice lacing. Pleasant aroma of piney, resinous and grapefruity hops. Flavor has some chewy malt, somewhat sweet, a bit caramelly, and big resinous and piney hops bitterness with a grapefruit note in the aftertaste. Medium-bodied. A good IPA. 8/3/7/3/14=3.5
