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.

elbernays (540) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 10, 2014
Can in weatherspoons Birmingham. Pours marmalade murky orange with wispy white head. Nose is spruce, pine, citrus, spice, forrest. Caramel biscuit sweet flavour with medicinal Strawberry. A strong dry bitterness finish. Grassy treacle aftertaste. Slick mouthfeel. Carbonation lifts the malt and therefore is not too syrupy. Lovely.

Can at Wye bridge house, Buxton
Hazy pale amber, fluffy white head with slightly metallic mandarins aroma. Moderate body and carbonation, juicy citrus but a tad cardboardy malt wise.

ByTheirLimpin (17) - New York, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Pours a clear golden amber with a decent fading head. The first sniff is full of hops which eases into a palatable caramel sweetness. A big mouthful hits interestingly dry but expectedly hoppy. The sweetness returns near the end. It’s refreshing to have an IPA that is this well balanced and doesn’t die just on the vine.

MSBrindbergs (368) - Solna, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2014
Fat på Monks American Bar. Klar gyllengul vätska, litet skum. Doftar bra av tropisk frukt och malt. Bra balanserad i smaken, fruktig som går över i en perfekt beska. Var skeptisk först då den beskrevs som "engelsk" men väldigt välbalanserad och god. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Transfer from BA review on 11-28-12- Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Served a copper-orange color with one finger off white head. The head has a decent level of retention, eventually fading to a persistent film on the top of the brew and a moderate level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is rather interesting. It has a good strong grapefruit aroma mixed with a bready smell. Along with these are strong floral and pine hop aromas as well as some lighter cinnamon and other spice smells. Taste – The taste begins with a bready malt flavor and some fruit flavors of a citrus nature mixed with some tropical fruit. The citrus is a mix of grapefruit hop as well as an orange sweet taste. As the taste advances, some spice flavors enter the tongue. Neither the hop nor the spice are ever too heavy, but instead blend quite well with some of the bready flavors that are upfront. In the end, some pine hop flavors come to the tongue and with the flavors that preceded it, leave a smooth hopped and spiced flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is medium to above medium side in terms of thickness with a carbonation level that is below average. The creamier body of the brew coupled with the lighter carbonation create a smooth feel and complement the hop, spice, and malt flavors of the brew nicely. Overall – A rather enjoyable IPA. It had had a nice blend between sweet, hop, malt and spice. One to try if you get a chance.

Can. Sweet nectar rich honey aroma with a golden orange colour. Citrus, orangey flavour, refreshing with a lot of substance. Fairly simple character but well balanced and appropriately bittersweet. A little malty. Very nice.
