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, as pictured. Pours pretty much a clear orange with a minimal white head. Smells surprisingly malty with maybe a little bit of citrus. Not too bad overall, perhaps not as hoppy as I was expecting.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Hazy orange-amber bodt. Thick offwhite head. Nice Lacing. S: Grapefruit and Floral hop character. Caramel malt comes through. T: Hearty malt body is well accented by blasts of grapefruit and floral hop bitterness. Well balanced considering the clear grapefruit presence. M: Smooth medium bodied brew. Thin at spots. But a nice crisp finish does not disappoint. O: Not exactly my style of IPA (not hoppy enough for my tongue) but this is a solid brew.

This is my first Six Point brewery beer. We were at Mekong for dinner and the IPA was appealing. I think the beer selector favors Belgian Style ales. The IPA had a smallish head and some lacing. The golden color was inviting with some haze. The bitter taste of the various hops was muddled. Nothing jumped out at you. The ale went well with the southeast asian food. The carbonation was average for this medium body ale. Smooth finish with only a hint of bitterness.

I drank this beer in honor of the zanesville animal situation going down in the news today. It was an apt choice, and a delicious beer. At first the hoppiness was overshadowed by a bit too much spice.... but then it relaxed a bit and turned out okay in the end. I was happy with this beer. I don’t like many "english" styles so I was a bit worried by the description, but I don’t read the description until after I buy the beer so it doesn’t make much difference. Also, the can design for this beer is amazing, and the names from this brewery are all clever. Huzzah!

On tap. Pours orange with a fluffy white head and a lot of lacing. Aroma is of orange fruit, hops and some caramel. Medium, very creamy body. Flavors are of citrus hops in the beginning, followed by caramel malt and orange fruit. Also there were unpleasant meaty off notes, which I assumed were coming from tap lines or glass. I don’t want to take away points for that. Otherwise it was very nice brew.

16 oz. can from Grape & Gourmet. Dark orange pour with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, grapefruit, and light pine. The flavor is of pine needles, cut grass, and tangerine rind with a bit of earthiness on the finish. A good IPA overall.

(16oz tallboy can thanks to Mora2000) cloudy orange with long-lasting creamy tan head. Nose is bready, light citrus, and cracker. Taste of citrus, orange, cracker, rhubarb, earthy, and herbal. Bitter finish, oily body that’s well carbonated.

Hazy amber pour with a robust white head. Lots of pine oriented herbals with massive citrus notes. Caramel oriented malt character with hints of bread grains. The flavor is just fantastic- citrus to the max with an ever present backnote of evergreen forest. Light airy carbonation with a fluffy mouthfeel and resinous finish.
