COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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; its the mark of the Tiger.

Hard to decide on what to drink when Ive had everything at the Flying Saucer. Luckily this peeped its head from the menu. Although I wouldnt buy this, not having it before, I probably wouldnt buy it from the shelf. I may be discriminating of canned beers I havent had. Dont know why. It pours a pretty heavy, cloudy dark caramel color with a dense, foamy off white head. It has an aroma of burnt dough with a bitter edge. I can tell this is going to be English in style, but with an American kick. In the mouth its pretty malty, with a thick, English-style mouthfeel and massive amounts of bitter, earthy green hoppiness. A little offensive at first from the sharp bitterness, but you quickly adjust to it. Although heavy on malts, its not all that sweet. If anything it offers more of a burnt sugar flavor than caramel. Pretty decent overall, but not that attractive. It has a definite character, and thats very much of a rough-around-the edges monster of a beer that doesnt care what people think of it. Alcohol is present but not obvious and only adds to the roughness. Burnt sugar, bitterness, heaviness, a respectful alcohol presence. That pretty much sums it up. Harsh.

Scipio (869) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Pours a very bright and cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is dominant in pine, while containing pineapple and pine as well. It is enticing, but it isnt nearly as robust as I was expecting. The taste is big on fruit. Orange, apricot, pineapple are easily recognized. There is also an unusual toasty, cereal flavor in here as well. How odd. I can best describe it as bug spray. In fact, along with orange and apricot, this is what makes up much of the aftertaste. Medium bodied, somewhat sticky in texrture, with some good carbonation in here. I have to say that I was expecting more here. I found the taste to be quite funky.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 16oz can poured into glass. Aroma is pungent with pine, resin, and floral/slight citrus hop. Nice transfer from caramel malt sweet to a quickly developed bitterness bite. Smooth somewhat dry finish with an orange peel lingering taste. Long lasting off white head.

Can poured into glass. Very nice, easy drinking IPA. Good floral hops up front with a nice grapefruit finish. Definitely a good go to canned beer for me.

Pours a nice honey color with a small white / light tan cap. Smells like pineapple. Hard flavor. Not very sweet. Hoppy, slight pineapple, and a little herbal. Nice beer. Keeping my eyes open for more from six point. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
