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.

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This crisp and prickly India Pale Ale showcases oranges and hop resins aplenty, as floral honey suggestions cover light biscuits.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A tireless head of foam laces atop the hazy amber.
-The flavor profile is leveled throughout, of medium-level of intensity.
-A touch of alcohol is hallucinated.
-Malts are as nicely defined as the hops in this one, which is not often the case for American IPAs.
-The body is slick and professionally-rendered.
-Drinkability is very high for a 6% brew.

Can. Thx Steve!

From a can. Aroma has quite a bit of sweet caramel malt to it and a light cracker quality. Some grapefruit and pine resin as well as some dank hop notes. No alcohol aroma. Faint esters, no phenolics. Pours a fairly clear copper with a touch of amber to it. Very slightly off white head that is fairly thick with good retention and lacing. Flavor is similar to the aroma. Quite a bit of caramel and secondary cracker notes. Fairly sweet. Some grapefruit and lots of resin. Assertive bitterness. Light alcohol flavor. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Silky with a bit of stickiness. Low hop astringency. Medium alcohol warmth. Overall this is exactly the type of IPA that I do not like. While it is clean, all the caramel malts get in the way of the nice hop notes and create a bit of a disaster. This is more a hoppy amber ale than an IPA. Seriously, why do you have to screw up all the nice hops with a metric shit ton of caramel malt? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Nice, clean, orange pour with a frothy 1 finger head. Not really that much on nose, light citrus and bread. Taste of bread, grass, and grapefruit. Not a fan of EKG, average ipa and wont buy again.

This canned brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated hazy dark orange colored body and a good lacing. The strong aroma was mild floral hoppy malty and woody. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong hoppy aftertaste. The deep flavor contained notes of resin and deep hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Wittales (762) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Appearance was clear orangish gold with off white creamy diminishing 1finger head, spotty Lacing. Aromas are citrus fruits, pine, caramel, pale 2-row malts, no alcohol present. Taste are orange, lemon, grapefruit, sweet caramel malty backbone, no alcohol. Palate was soft smooth creamy CO2 with medium body, then lasting piney, citrusy and resinous finish. Too much bitterness for me.

Bubbly orange with medium off white head. Aroma grapefruit and herbal hops. Medium body, lightly carbonated. Bitterness there but not overwhelming. Citrus and pine hop flavors. Well structured malt background with hint of sweetness. Nice IPA.

Thanks to Lance! Aroma is sweet, nutty, caramel malts with some piney and earthy hops. Flavor is sweet, nutty, almost doughy on the front through mid palate with piney and earthy bitterness coming in on the back. Not bad,a little too sweet.

On tap at Dexters, pours a hazy copper orange witha bubbly white head, the aroma has a dank wet hop touch with a little bit of citrus, I like my IPAs to smell a little more fresh than ths one, the flavor is nice with a citrus finish and a slick mouthfeel, the aroma is more wet weed danky hops than the flavor, bitterness lingers in the mouth a little bit, pretty good.
