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.

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2014
Pours amber with a large fading head. Nose shows pear, lychee, piny hops and lots of sweet clean malt. Flavours follow along the same line but more focus on the pine. Still a fair whack of malt but the sharp bitterness wins out in the end. Great moderately high carbonation.

Can. Hazy golden orange with an off white foam. Aromas are piney with mixed tropical fruit and hints of seawater. Mango with grapefruit and leafy notes. Woody with spiced oranges. Flavours are sweet oranges and lemon with bitter grapefruit and green pine. Bready yeast with candy sugar and a warming booziness. Orange marmalade on toast. Peppery and herbal on the palate. Very nice.

Can. Lightlty hazy amber beer, goods pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth with light fine carbonation. Smooth light malt with a trace of creamy sweetness. Good piney hops, smooth and a nice contrast of light fresh orange. Finishes light and minerally crisp. Light peel linger. A tasty and easy going IPA. Could drink a lot of this.

jerd16 (129) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2014
Pours clear amber with large fluffy but robust head. Aroma is fresh citrus, pine, caramel malt : standard - if a little introverted - East Coast IPA stuff. Dominant flavor is pine, some subtle grapefruit, a little herbal and some chewy caramel/toffee malt. Nicely balanced. Fairly oily in consistency - an acquired mouthful. Finishes with light lasting bitterness. Solid.

Amber with a finger white head. Aromas earthy hops, grass, flowers, some grapefruit with the taste following much the same. More malt than I prefer, definitely an East coast IPA, well made but not my favorite.

355ml can at the Sanderling JDW Glasgow Airport. Cost £3.99 so I won’t be having beer a the airport again. Hazy orang amber, big head. Resin orange hop aroma. Grapefruit hop flavour. Bitter orange grapefruit aftertaste. A bit flat. I hope these beers are a success with JDW. I would like to try more like this.
