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.

emacgee (4786) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2018
Sharp gold pour with two fingers of off-white head. Nose is herbal/earthy hops with some rustic and bready malt. Reminds me of an IPA from late 90's early 2000's. Woody malty and balanced. Pine resin and full hop bitterness. Medium body. Meh.

Navers (323) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 10, 2018
Pours golden, creamy medium head. Aroma is floral, garden flowers, citrousy, perfum, malty, fresh. Taste is dominated by English hops like bitterness, resinous, zesty, earthy, pip fruit, grapefruit hints. It is also malty and sweet. Definitely the best beer available in British and Scottish Wetherspoons.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2018 Can which poured slightly amber gold with a thin but persistent head. Aroma of orange peel and resin, with a lot of resinous hop taste. Decent hard working IPA.

Small can from the sampler case. Very good on all points. Nice and enjoyable, even on a cold winter day.

basjansen14 (554) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 18, 2018
Golden coloured ale with a nice white head. Aroma: hoppy, floral, spicy and some sweetness. Taste: hop oil, fruitiness, piney, caramel, some malt and ends quite bitter.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2018 ABV - 6.6 IBU - 66 .Appearance: Hazy Amber, white head. Side note - great new packaging and marketing from Six Point. .Aroma: Tropical hop profile. West coast IPA. Pine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach. .Taste: Follows the aroma for the most part. Citrusy/juicy. It isn't overpoweringly bitter, but has a bite on the finish. Subtle malt sweetness balances this beer out. .Mouthfeel: Medium body, great drinkability. Subtle carbonation. Leaves the mouth dry. Alcohol is well hidden. .Overall: B. .Bottom Line: Well done. Six point has revamped their lineup and packaging, so far so good.

I had it on tap. It pours orange and amber with an off-white head and lacing. The aroma is orange, grapefruit, and hops. The taste is nice, bitter hops, orange, grapefruit, and caramel. There's a lot of hops bitterness. It's balanced nicely with the sweetness. This is a solid IPA.
