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.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Nice pale ale with a solid hop profile and a bit of citrus. Not sure the malt profile is as prominent as advertised but pretty tasty on the whole. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz can: Pours light orange, slightly cloudy, thick white head and sticky on the side of the glass. Aroma of citrus and resinous hops; caramel malts. Taste is salty and bitter. Flavors of bready malts, resinous and citrus hops. Slightly thin, bitter finish, not the most fun to drink.

Theres an OK malty aroma, but its very messy. Papery taste. Pretty crap. My notes do say "like a shit IPA", and as this is an IPA, I guess that makes it a shit IPA.

At a tasting, thanks David D., small creamy head, clear deepish orange colour, aroma of pine, orange marmalade, and some tropical fruits and bread in the back, flavour of orange marmalade, citrus and some biscuity malt, medium mellow herbal bitterness and just a touch too sweet but still quite balanced. Very nice.

Draft at Tampa Palms WOB. Pours a slightly hazed copper amber color with a foamed white head. Aroma has some hop funkiness to it. Flavor has hoppy gapefruit and pineapple notes with a touch of sweetness in the finish. Somewhat watery mouthfeel.

16 oz. can explodes with tropical fruit, resin, pine, juicy and just super hoppy right from the tab. Pours pale light orange with a creamy off-white head. Taste is strongly bitter but the high level of sweetness totally undercuts that good bitterness, some of the hop oils remain to stick out underneath, floral notes flower, little packets of orange jam sans Schrippe, but otherwise classic dry hopping with a mix of something close to Cascade and dank EKG. Cleans the palate moderately well, malt is thin and unremarkable. Medium-fullish body. Id hold this up as an example of how canning preserves (dry hopping) freshness better than bottles, as this is fresh to the point of being almost green, but there are (better!) beers with a stronger malt backbone.

Can. Hazy orange pour with foamy head and nice lacing. Aroma is strong mint hops, earthy hops, spicy hops, medium grain, hint of rye? Flavor is minty, light rye, huge spicy/earthy hops, medium grain and biscuit as well. Full mouthfeel with medium carbonation and a mildly bitter finish.

Solid, if a bit boring IPA. Theres a spicy, almost rye quality to the flavor. Refreshing, not too heavy.

I seem to be in the minority in finding that this beer is too overwhelmingly hoppy for my taste. I will try to be objective nonetheless. Pours a very hazy orange-copper color. Half inch head dissipates quickly and has virtually no lacing. Scent is slightly on the hoppy side but provides no warning of what the taste holds in store. Upon tasting, the taste of hops is overpowering and overwhelming. I found it difficult to discern other flavors above this. If you enjoy a hoppy beer, this is the one for you I guess.

Above average IPA, but by no means world class. Delicious and balanced, with a great hop bitterness and meaningful complexity. Gives a bit more fizziness than my personal taste, but Id certainly buy this again.
