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.

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.

Can: pours hazy copper, velvety one finger bright white head. Great retention and nice lacing. Nose is toast, herbal, caramel malts, orange rind, spice, resin. On the palate, herbal, caramel malt sweetness, earthy, spicy hop bitterness from the dry hopping. The drying bitterness is pleasant and balanced. This beer grew on me once I got into it as it was quite drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shared with some bros. Pours a hazy orange with a fluffy head out of a nicely designed 16 oz can. Nice, citrus aroma reminds me a big of mandarin oranges. Flavor is light citrus with a nice resinous pine in the finish. Would definitely try this one again.

16 oz can from TheEpeeist. Nose is citrus, with light grass, floral ,pine, and caramel. Hazy light amber with a medium lightly lacing cream head. Flavor is lightly piney resin, bitterness and lots of caramel malt. It actually does "tiger stripe" the glass with the lacing!
