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 at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol July 2014. Deep amber with a big, frothy, off-white head. Citrus hops, sweet caramel, dense malts and a dryish finish. Good.

16oz can poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy dark orange with a half finger of white head. Aroma of citrus and pine resin. Taste is light bitter, follows aroma. Light bodied with a thin texture, lively carbonation and a long, lasting finish. Pretty good.

Canned Saracens Head Daventry 26/06/14. A hazy ginger coloured beer with a white head. Good citrussy hops but there’s a definite crystal malt sweentness which for me spoils. Flavoursome and drinkable but I’d prefer pale malts which wouldn’t detract from the hops.

matstrange (65) - Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
A hazy amber nectar with a decent head. An intensely hoppy beer with a heavy maltiness too. Not as refreshing as some lightet IPAs but damn its good. Without a doubt the best beer in Wetherspoons line up. You wont regret it (until the morning!)

355ml can at the Assembly Rooms, Epsom. Pours hazy orange with a decent white head. Aroma of pine with a hint of tea. Bitter finish. Certainly worth £1.99.

johndoughty (3960) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Can. Bought from JD Wetherspoons at Merry Hill. Slightly cloudy orange appearance with a medium head. Citrus and hops blend together to produce a powerful beer. Sweet but not overpowering with quite a full body. Powerful but easy to drink.

jamestulloch (1351) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 21, 2014
Can from Wetherspoon’s, Edinburgh airport. Clear golden body with a massive off-white head. Very lively carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of earth, orange, honey and fresh green hops. Flavour of blood orange, pine and caramel. Medium body with a very oily texture. Fizzy carbonation. Very hoppy but a bit too malt sweet for my liking.

Hop_Hedonist (246) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2014
Brilliant - herbal resinous hops jump out the glass - mirrored on the palate - low malt impact but superb balance - fantastic bitterness - touch of peppery heat at the end ?chilli - I love this - really easy to smash down. One point off because I prefer tropical fruited hops.
