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.

Vignale (2276) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2015
Burk från craftbeer/Galatea. På flera sätt en ganska stiltypisk västkust-IPA med massor av grape och fin karamellig maltkropp utan att bli särskilt söt. Men bryggeriet menar att den är är ett försök till tolkning av en typisk brittisk IPA och den är torrhumlad med EKG-humle. Hur som helst välgjord med rena smaker som har djup, fyllighet och balans. Riktigt god.

Lilja (1853) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2015
Burk från craftbeer/Galatea. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, grapefrukt med toner av tall. Välbalanserad, rund och len IPA med fina fruktiga smaker. Lätt kropp, men inte blaskig, fin sötma och beska. Fin fint!

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2015 Can from The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) Pours a clear pale amber with a thick creamy white head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit and a hint of caramel. Taste of caramel, citrus and zesty grapefruit bitterness. Medium carbonation and a long, dry hop bitterness in the finish. Nice.

Pours an amber yellow with a great white head which slowly recedes to a lacing. Aroma is citrusy and slightly malty. Taste is bitter hops, slight pleasant citric fruits and then some caramel/breadiness. Fairly average.

RyanK (236) - Rhode Island, USA - FEB 3, 2015
12oz can pours golden, bubbly and filtered with a small white head than dissipates quick. Smells of fruity hops mixed in with english style malt. Taste follows, fruity hops are overshadowed by english malt. Definitely an english style IPA, rather tasty and easily session-able.

bergstaden (1472) - Røros, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2015
Dark golden with a white head - Fruity hop aroma - Good malt body to support a nice hop profile with fruityness and some hints of pine with a nice bitterness - The hops and bitterness goes into the finish - This was nice
