Mmmmm... Tried this first at my local's IPA tasting. It won in my opinion. Very nice ale with them citrusy, piney hops that I so adore.

16oz can (love that we're starting to see fine ales in cans, as I'm an outdoorsman) poured into a 20oz "Liberal Pint" glass. Cloudy, amber, unfiltered. A fine looking brew. My nose may be failing me, as the aroma of this dry-hopped ale failed to wow me.

The first sip did not fail. Nor did subsequent sloshes. Light lacing (sorta tiger stripes I spose) as the fine flavors seep to my soul.

Yep, there's a new brewery in town (Brooklyn!) and they're serious. New to me anyway as I'm in Boston, but several weeks back, on a visit to NYC, I tasted a gravity-poured Sixpoint Signal Rauchbier at the Blind Tiger. It was to die for.

Cost was $10/4 16oz cans. A little high but no regrets.

16oz can picked up at Premiering Buffalo. Pours a slightly hazed vibrant orange, two finger of head which leave sticky lacing in the glass.

Nose is piney and citrus rind, good dose of caramel, pretty clean. Flavor favors the citrus, really orangey with grapefruit rind, all about the hops but a plesant caramel malt with a hint of toast and husk, moderate bitterness, pretty much spot on what I'm looking for in an IPA. Slightly thin on the malt body but not too much so, easy drinker. Spot on IPA.

Tallboy into a pint glass.

Nice orange body with some cloudiness to it. Very generous head with great retention along with good looking lacing. This is one good looking brew right here.

Nose is chock full of citrus notes. Grapefruit and tangerine aromas really stick it to your senses. A solid malt base is present in the background, but the hops really shine through.

The taste is just as awesome as the aroma. Nice and bitter up front with citrus hop notes and even a bit of pine with a resinous finish. The malt backbone really helps the hops shine through. The mouthfeel on this one is good as well, medium bodied with a nice and smooth finish.

What a great IPA from Sixpoint. The quality of the brew plus it being in a can makes this one a winner. This is a great beer to make a regular in any fridge.

16oz can ~ best by 10/28/11

Always nice to find new quality brews in a can. Pours with a darker orange body, pretty cloudy, and 2 fingers of creamy head that has nice retention. Also some nice lacing on this IPA.

Lots of citrus and pine in the nose (more of the former). The taste seems to follow in line, a bit more spicy (almost a rye character). Also drier than I got from the nose, certainly not as much of the fruity sweetness. Medium bodied with above average carbonation given the style.

A nice IPA, got a different taste to it which I enjoyed.

Tall Boy can picked up at Vista Beverage.

Appearance is a cloudy orange tone with a two finger head. Nose of Benagli has citrus fruits, sugar, hops, all well balanced. The taste has pine, hops, more citrus, especially orange, some peach too. It has a medium body, not too bitter and easily drinkable. Glad to see that they started selling this in 4-pack cans.

16oz can poured into a Duvel tulip

Hazy, burnt orange body with a huge, foamy off-white head. The cap rose to fill the glass and subsided slowly. Great retention and loads of lace.

Spicy, earthy hops up front with grapefruit and pine needles holding down the low end with some sweet malt. Not as hop forward as I would like.

The flavor profile is extremely similar to the nose. Grapefruit and pine needles help to round out the spiciness from the hops. This is one of the spicier/earthier IPA's I have ever had. A good sized bitterness builds and builds with each sip.

Medium body and well-balanced. A solid example of an east coast IPA.

Overall, I liked this. I didn't love it. I actually liked this a tad better when I had it on tap a couple years back. This is a good everyday IPA.

Received in a trade with cosmicevan. Super excited to try this.

16oz can into a Killian's pint. Best by Oct 12th 2011

A- Pours a translucent coppery-orange with a finger's worth of off-white head. Leaves excellent lacing.

S- Huge juicy citrus and grapefruit notes. Resinous hops play in there as well with some sweet malty notes.

T- Sweet waves of grapefruit and tropical citrus juice. Small amount of caramel sweetness and a touch of grain notes.

M- Medium bodied with a decent amount of carbonation that allows the bitter notes to hang around.

O- Damn this is a good single IPA. Intensely hoppy and fruity as all hell. Wish I could get this all the time!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Duvel tulip.

Beautiful hazy, yellow-orange pour with a frothy, white and soapy head that recedes slowly into a thin collar on the glass. Not much carbonation in appearance. Smell is particularly full of a great amount of pine and resin, with a slight touch of citrus on the back end. The pungency of the resin makes up most of the aroma actually. And the malts give a nice sweetness to the aroma.

Taste begins with the malt bill laying a nice, bready foundation and immediately turns into the slight, hoppy bitterness, leaving a nice grapefruit-esque dryness on the palate afterwards. The malts comprise most of the flavor profile than the hops. Great tasting beer though. Very easy drinking, especially for the humid weather. Refreshing at best.

Medium-bodied actually, with absolutely not much of a carbonated feel on the palate. Consistent with the appearance. Great IPA from Sixpoint. Can't say it's my favorite, but all of their canned offerings are extremely solid. $10 for a 4-pack of 16 oz. cans of an IPA? Huge value in the long run. Happy #IPADay!

A - A slightly cascading pour... Two plus fingers worth of dense slightly off-white colored head comprised of medium sized bubbles... Impressive retention... The color is a pure medium amber... Loaded with swirling small bubbled carbonation...

S - You don't even need to bring your nose anywhere near the glass to smell the hops... A wonderful mix of citrus and pine that combine to create a wonderful bitter pungency... Some bready malts and perhaps even a kiss of spice lies beneath the surface...

T - Hoppy to say the least, but a bit more reserved than I expected given the potency of the nose... Piney to start... Lots of earthy character... The citrus is very muted... A solid malt base throughout... Just a subtle twinge of spiciness...

M - Delectable... Medium bodied... Very light bristly carbonation... Smooth... Sleek... Uber refreshing... Goes down very easily sip after sip after glorious sip...

D - This one deserves a seat at the table with other top notch American IPAs... Abundantly hoppy without being off putting in the slightest... A great head... Powerful aroma... Lush mouthfeel... Sixpoint continues to earn my respect with each passing brew I try... Really good stuff here...

Finally found some of this in cans the other week. Picked up a 4 pack of pounder cans. Poured into a pint glass.

A: A medium copper orange color with a off white fluffy head. Nice lacing.

S: Fruits start with orange and grapefruit with some huge spicy pne scents and some bready malt.

T: The fruit starts with a big blast of orange, tangerine and grapefruit. The spicy piney earthly flavor takes over the fruit with the deep malt sweetness that turns nice and bitter. Bitterness smooths a bit on the finish but stays spicy and prickly. Nice beer.

M: Full, prickly, dark, spicy resiny with not a lot of alcohol. Finish lasts.

O: A great beer from a can that is very drinkable. More of an east coast style with the darker hop notes, but still really really good.

I really like this beer as a change of pace. It also makes a nice beach beer with the cans. Overall a very balanced IPA that drinks very well. I'll take a can of this any day of the week. Nice.

Tallboy can courtesy of Centennial. Thanks homey! Poured into a tulip. This one pours an amber color with lots of bubbles sticking to the side of the glass. A thin finger of white foam sits on top.

Lots of piney hops in the aroma. A little bit of orange and grapefruit come through with a bit of spiciness round it out. Mostly a big hop aroma here though. The flavors is much like the aroma. Lots of piney hops on the pallet and a bit of caramel to the flavor. Somewhat bready.

The feel is good. Nice light body with soft carbonation. Overall pretty glad to see another tasty IPA in a tallboy!

Drank from a 16 oz./473 ml/1 pint can
Served in a pint glass
Thanks to Montrose79 for including this as an extra in our trade.

The beer poured a near crystal clear, medium amber color and was topped by a one-plus finger tall crop of beige foam. Within a few minutes, the head completely dissipated, leaving the beer looking flaccid. I found it quite ironic that the label on the can states, "Note the lacing of stripes around your glass - it is the mark of the Tiger." Unfortunately, the Tiger must not be feeling well today.

An wide variety of fragrant hop notes came through strong in the nose. Lots of tangerine and candied orange peel. Some tropical fruits (mango and pineapple) were also noticeable. Slightly spicy. Rich caramel malts appeared as well. Overall, nicely balanced and quite interesting.

The flavor profile was similar to the aroma, except perhaps a bit drier and more simplistic. Hoppy and crisp. Orange peel was most apparent. Some grapefruit was also noticeable. The hops were well matched by a stiff yet unobtrusive caramel malt backbone. The finish was moderately bitter. Dry and pithy with lingering notes of pine sap and grapefruit rind. At 6.4% ABV, this beer was remarkably quaffable.

Although the large bubbled, prickly effervescence (along with the lack of haze in the appearance) would lead me to believe that this beer is force carbonated, the liquid still managed to maintain a slick creaminess once it settled on my palate. Medium bodied for the style.

Bengali Tiger is an interesting, well crafted and drinkable American IPA. I would encourage anyone looking to satisfy their summer hop fix to pick up a four pack of these tall boys.

I cracked this can open and i could see into the open mouth-- a full inch and a half of headspace before the liquid... This 16 oz can falls 3 fingers short of filling my pint glass--- and that includes the 1.5 fingers of head!

Anyway... Perhaps a rough start? We'll see how things go...

Orangey apricot color with head of shimmering micro-bubbles... This looks fantastic. Awesome retention and lacing.

The smell is a little bland... Like, where's the nose?

The flavor is huuuuge bitter abrasive grapefruit notes. This is literally like a carbonated ruby red grapefruit juice. Wow. It is intense, and not in the best way. It is waaaay to bitter-- nearing Ruination levels, and not nearly flavorful or complex enough.

The body feels overcarbonated, a bit like seltzer water. There is also a very odd pulpy feel going on.

Overall- I'm not sure what's going on with this beer. I'm not loving it, but I'm not sure I'm ready to write it off. I do have another can, so I'll update my review when I crack that open.

EDIT-- and I have thus cracked open said can. Served in my nonic pint and sipped whilst relaxing after work.
My original review had the following ratings:
A-5
S-3
T-2.5
M-1
O-3

This time around I feel I have a better representation of the beer... But I'm still not crazy for it.

The color is dark orange, and any glowing sunset action seems clouded over by a high level of haziness-- this must be how people in LA feel when the watch a sunset.
The aroma remains pretty mild-- some dry bready malt with citrus and pine hops... But not explosive or intense. Just... well, mild.
The flavor improves slightly for me, but not all that much... It follows the nose but again strikes me as a bit underwhelming. Any abrasive bitterness is turned into a pretty pleasant smooth bitter bite that almost pulls off a complimentary role to the rest if the profile. It falls just short however because it dowdy feel assimilated properly, it stands out a bit too much.
The body has tremendously improved. It is medium bodied (for an IPA), but holds plenty of bubbles to scrub my palate with each sip. I think I would love to see a little prickly feel from some assertive dry-hopping, but this is more than adequate.

Overall-- it loses a bit in appearance, but pretty much gains in all other aspects. Not too bad. Not my favorite IPA, but certainly drinkable.

Big Thanks to Retail01 for this treat he included as an extra in his first trade.

Pours a cloudy dark amber, topped by two fingers of whipped cream, finally a skim surrounded by gargoyle arms of clingy lace.

Lemony sweet in front of the nose, candi and a bit of light grain and toffee, orange peel, and some spicy and tart yeast to round it off. Less complex than I recall from the tap versions I've enjoyed.

Some candi sweet tries to give it up to some crazy bittering hop at the front of the sip, citrus peel and even a bit of pine jump the play, and as it warms caramel joins the fun, though the candi is involved all the way through, and some nice spicy herbal bitter joins, tastefully. It lingers on the palate, but it isn't cloying, per se, though it develops a touch of cough drop to it.

Higher carb. than I remember, almost too high, quite viscous, decent finish.

Nice beer from a solid brewery. Its charm is it isn't an attempt to recreate something, it tries to be different, and partly succeeds.

Thanks to ShogoKawada for the grip of cans! Poured from a 16oz tall-boy into my Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.

The liquid is a cloudy dark orange to amber gradient topped by an active half-finger of delicate ivory suds. Average retention, sticky lacing.

Dank and lush hop oil aromatics are joined by a gentle caramel/candy-apple sweetness.

Moderately bitter throughout with hints of strawberry, pine, and star-fruit. A persistent maltiness seems a mixture of sweet and pale. Scallion and herbal (marijuana?) flavors come forward in the finish, though there is also a very faint metallic note (and no, I do not attribute this to the can) which I can readily ignore. Just a touch of smoke in the aftertaste especially as the beer warms...

Medium-light bodied, well carbonated, though somewhat thin.

Well balanced IPA, though not remarkable. Great camping beer if you have easy access to it.

got to sample this can from one of my all time favorite breweries sixpoint everything i had so far from them i have either liked or loved i have not had a bad experience yet

ok here she goes the appearance is awesome super nice big fat head on this one and the lacing is outstanding

aroma like a huge pine forest smell and there is some citrus fruits in there as well i also detect some biscuit and bready malt character

taste is real subtle on the back end i taste a lot of super fruit bitter hops upfront then on the back end less of the hops and more the nice subtle bread character

mouthfeel light in the carbonation but just enough to make the hops sing

overall this is one of the best ipas i had recently and one of my favorite beers from sixpoint so far

A: Toasted apricot ale with a single finger of light maple foam which falls slowly to a sheet of the same. Rings of lace above this ale of limited clarity.

S: Lots of soily, oily hops, not particularly intriguing. Some hints of grapefruit. The hop profile seems pretty similar to Righteous Ale (their Rye).

T: Grassy and grainy. The malts are more prominent than I would prefer in a good IPA. This is improperly balanced for an American IPA, reminds me more of an English IPA.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carb. Nice dry finish.

Thanks to Trevor for this one.

A: The beer pours a cloudy light amber color with a huge white head that sticks to the glass.

S: This is an IPA? Very...bland aroma. Mostly bread and pale malts with just a hint of floral hops and maybe some tea. Just a little bit of citrus peel and that's about it.

T: The flavor is similarly unremarkable. There is a light bitterness and just a bit of grassy and floral hops. Mild citrus peel notes and a little bit of tea here, too.

M: Medium in body with the carbonation just on the low side of medium.

O: Amazingly bland for an IPA. I've had some pretty decent beers from Sixpoint, so this was a bit of a letdown for me.

I picked this up as a 4 pack of 16oz pounders. I'm a sucker for any kind of canned craft beer.

A- Poured into a large beer mug, I got a short lasting, 2 finger, off-white head which topped a crystal clear orange amber body. Very little lacing to speak of.

S- Sweet and fruity with big citric notes. Slight phenols poking through. Plenty of hops to come…

T- Pretty big taste which is clearly about the hops in this one. Slippery hop oils coat the mouth generously. I’m usually a big fan of any largely hopped IPA, but the flavor from these hops seems to be a pit peculiar. Maybe it’s the varietal; maybe it’s just me…

M- Fairly one sided, sharp hop bitterness which sticks around fairly long. In my humble opinion, the malts could stand to be a bit more pronounced in order to help even it out a bit.

Over all it's a good beer, but I’m not sure I’d actively seek it out for any other reason than craving a 16oz canned IPA.

A - Pours a hazy medium orange color with a one fingered white, creamy looking head. Foam dies down fairly fast and leaves a creamy, thick, ring of white lacing. Carbonation is moderate, starting from the mid sides of my glass. Poured this one into a red wine glass (hey, traveling on business and it seemed more appropriate than a plain old pint glass.

S - Tropical fruit rinds that's pungent and spicy. Fruit mixed of grapefruit, mango, pineapple.

T - Wow!! The hops are shining big and bold with nice grapefruit bitterness bite along with juicy and spicy tropical fruit flavors. Slight malt sweetness up front at the tip of the tongue followed by tropical fruit juicy bitterness and ends with a lingering grapefruit bitterness. There's an ever so slight trace of wetblanket for a brief moment in the middle but it quickly goes away.

M - Medium to heavy medium body, finishes dry

O - Pretty impressive aroma and taste for a sub-7% IPA, it's something I would expect out of a bigger IPA. Definitely worth checking out.

16oz tall boy can. Pours a translucent dark amber color with a thin head. Some lacing. Aroma is citrus and piney hops. Resiny. Taste is more of the same. Piney, resinous flavor. Good amount of citrus and bitter. Very bitter and im loving it. Not a very balanced IPA, but it works damn well. I've heard this is a polarizing beer. I definitely like this one. Overall, a solid IPA that's worth having again.

Alright more beer in a can and more Sixpoint! The first one I had from them was absolutely awesome. Hoping the Bengali does not disappoint me here.

Poured out of my can into my glass and wow! Huge nice perfect big white head. It stuck on the glass all the way down. Perfect nice hazy orange color. Big bold massive hop aroma there too. Wow, this is interesting and enticing.

Tasted awesome! Nice citrus and pine flavor and lots of bready malt. Almost like breakfast toast with preserves! :-)

Amazing mouthfeel. Creamy at the same time bright and refreshing.

Overall, this is one awesome refreshing brew. It absolutely hit the spot on a hot day.

This beer is absolutely beautiful. It pours a medium golden orange color that leaves sheets of lacing. It has a half inch of white head which is white and tight and remains as a a bit more than a film on the surface. The aroma is nice, but nothing extraordinary. It is very citrus forward, grapefruit mostly. The beer does taste very good as well, with the same big grapefruit which is really nice, but for me it lacks a desired bitter bite. It comes off as a bit maltier as opposed to a big hop bomb because that bitterness isn't really there. The caramel maltiness is nice, but not really what I was looking for in this beer. Mouthfeel was a bit thick, and it was not quite as carbonated as I would have liked. Overall, this is a very nice and enjoyable beer.

ANOTHER fabulous canned beer. I had this and Oskar Blues G'Knight yesterday evening during a BBQ I held at my place (along with so many other beers). This one REALLY stood out. It's hard to believe how under the radar this brew is. A very smooth drinkable IPA with a fabulous hop profile. It's not an egregious amount of hops either. It's just right. I'll be drinking plenty of this going forward.
