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; it’s the mark of the Tiger.

Can from Cazz. Thanks for the omiyage! Lots of orange and citrus on the nose, marmalade, brown sugar and grassy hops. Well-balanced on the palate with a touch of caramel. Bitter finish that lingers. A solid, simple IPA.

mcberko (13227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2016
On tap at VCBW Festival 2016, pours a hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma brings out light piney hops and some mild hop resins. Flavour is resinous and herbaceous in the hop department, with a grassiness as well. Dry biscuity malt backbone as well. Solid stuff.

A simply fantastic IPA, with superior balance and exceedingly fresh flavor! Pours a classic pale orange color, with lots of smooth lacing and a steady white foamy head. Pleasant west coast hop aroma, balanced by a slightly caramel-accented warm malt contrast. Solid hoppy bitterness up front, but transitions to a very complex malty flavor profile, with a grapefruit resin background, truly a perfectly balanced IPA. Medium bodied with a smooth finish, highly recommended!!

Thanks to Bob for sharing! Great floral nose. The beer starts floral and intense. Fruity with an absolutely round but slightly grainy body. Smooth, floral piney hops, great stuff.
