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.

Can: Pours hazy orange-amber with a tall, chunky, off-white head. Sweet orange aroma, florals. Taste is strong orange peel...a nice steady bitter. Some pine and caramel. Very soft and smooth.

Hazy gold. Aroma is sweet, citrusy, pine, and even a little floral. Flavor is definitely an IPA - clean bitter with some pine, grapefruit, and caramel. Excellent.

Cybercat (5662) - Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Comes out of the tap a beautiful clear amber - not much in the way of the off-white head, but that is an artifact of the pour. Aroma is not too strong, but fruity and hoppy, rather inviting. Strong flavor is quite hoppy, rather bitter, better than what the aroma promised. Malty flavor has a firm hoppy, woody overtone and a fruity underpinning that has apple and orange notes. Texture is about average in the thickness and fizz department. Roar, tiger, roar!

VALIS (229) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 15, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2013 Big orange/grapefruit nose, bright tangerine color. So I was expecting a big citrus taste and instead got a maltier one. Its an interesting change of pace, even if I still prefer strong citrus and bitterness in my IPAs. Very pleasant aftertaste, tangy and wet.

Aroma is suddley hoppy, tiny citrus and a touch of caramel in the nose. Very hoppy bite on the first sip, calms way down and becomes more malty, caramel and floral flavors dominate this beer. A very good take on an English ipa.

radio_nowhere (1472) - Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2015 Daft at JoJos taphouse in Frederick, MD. Served in a Sam Adams lager glass (ugh), light orange color with a finger of white head. Aroma of citrus/piney hops and caramel malt. Taste is more bitter hoppiness then hop flavor, somewhat unbalanced. Light body, medium carbonation, dry. Some lingering bitterness. Good in a pinch.

Clear medium orange yellow colour with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, toasted, moderate to heavy hoppy, orange - citrus. Flavour is moderate to light heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a average to long duration, riped fruit, malty. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20130120]

scarletfire65 (1443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Can, at home. Hazy orange pour. Super pungent aroma, of fresh green hops with floral and piney overtones. Fresh and bright and bitter throughout, with tropical fruit coming through on the finish. False advertising on the "strong foundation of rich malt flavors". In fact, the malt struggles to hold up the impressive and highly aromatic dry hopping.

hfmejias (1282) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - MAR 8, 2013
16 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured a cloudy amber with a little off white head. Great aroma strong on piney hops, and citrus fruits. Taste is complex starts with very strong hoppiness that kinds of sweetens towards the end and even feels a bit watery but keep a very nice bitterness. Very good and easy to drink.

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
