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.

Beer came as advertised. Love the hops that jumped out at you and the taste of some of the citrus flavor. It wasn’t too heavy and just came together as a beer. The head showed great lacing and lasted for a good amount of time.

Light floral fragrance. The taste is fruity and bitter. Okay bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the front of the mouth for a long while. Okay beer anyway. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

dhatton (166) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Pours slightly hazy orangish color with thin off white head. Floral hoppy aroma with some earthiness, and citrus. Tastes of tropical fruits and heavy citrus flavors, grapefruit and tangerines. Body is leveled off with an adequate amount of maltiness. Lingering hop bitter finish. Well-balanced IPA.

Pours a redish orange color with thin, no lave head. Nose is very citrus fruits and grass heavy. There are hops and orange peel on second smell. Taste is dry and finishes bitter. It pulls moisture from the tongue, leaving almost a refreshing aftertaste. Grass, apricot, hops. A solid offering for sure.

reberiii (417) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2015
This is a pretty nice IPA, it just combines hops that you don?t necessarily expect. It?s a bit more biscuit than say a Stone IPA. Big grapefruit, soda carb, soapy lacing, slight ice cream hop.
