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.

16 oz can from Finger Lakes Beverage (Ithaca), served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Hazy orange-amber with a nice light tan-orange foam. Aroma: Really strong pine/resin, lemons, apricots, a bit floral (lavender?), nice caramel support, a touch brothy and a hint of sulphur, fruity toast crust, gorgeous. Palate: Medium+ body, fairly lively effervescence. Flav.: Lots of citrus and apricot, resinous/pine, lightly floral, a good deal of caramalt, fruity and sweet, lovely; off-dry with fair bitterness and a nice caramel, floral, citrus hop finish.

Best tiger I ever drank.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 1, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2011 Can from Whole Foods in Alexandria. Pours amber with a pale yellow head. Aroma of toffee and ale esters. Medium bodied with semi soft carbonation. Flavor of toffee malts, countered by a mild fruity bitterness. Very balanced and somewhat British in character. Some strange phenols on the finish that actually sort of grew on me. Perhaps a little too sweet and not hoppy enough for my tastes. At $10 a four pak of 16 ounce cans, not sure I would purchase again.

crazyvin (1860) - New York, USA - NOV 23, 2011
A golden body with a white head that had some retention and very mild lace. Good caramel malts upfront and a great mix of both pine hops and citrus notes. Neither one being aggressive but definitely present. Flavor had good malt notes and the hops had a great grapefruit quality to it. Really contrasted the caramel malts. Pine hops were mild but just enough to balance the grapefruit. A dry finish and the carbonation was just right. Good beer.

hopscotch (8552) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Can… Pours clear and orange with a small, wispy, white head. Excellent retention. The aroma is an intermingling of Ipa and Belgian ale components – fruity orange peel and grapefruit, white pepper, pine and clove. Full-bodied with modest carbonation. Fruity, spicy, moderately bitter flavor. Decent balance. Finishes crisp, light bitter and very refreshing. Thanks to growler for this can!

overall a very good ipa, not sure if the canning is a marketing stunt or not, but the color and aroma are pretty indicative of a west coast ipa, taste is too.

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 20, 2011
From notes. Sixpoint Sierra dinner beer #4, have also had in can. Nice appearance on this one, deeper golden hue good retention and lacing. Aromas are nice and balanced, citrus and piney, bit of floral too. Palate is balanced, some floral and citrus up front leads to an overly thin mid and lightly bitter finish. Not bad, but a clean sipping IPA to be sure.

agl108 (735) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2011
16 oz. can, IPA rating #100. Poured hazy orange with thin ring of head. Appears almost flat. Slightly sweet nose. Flavor is somewhat bready with very subtle tones of citrus and floral notes. Thin on the palate. ABV surprisingly over 8%. Unremarkable beer, would not revisit.
