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.

ellolovey (483) - Georgia, USA - OCT 7, 2013
16 oz can. Pours a hazy rust color with a foamy ivory head. Loads of lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine, resin, and faint sweet malts. Bitter citrus rinds, resin, and pine hops are upfront followed by a subtle sweet malt backbone. A bitter lingering finish.

This is a very good east coast style IPA. Good balance of hops and malts. It pours a beautiful dark gold. I’m also a fan of the pint cans Six Point uses.

merc7186 (2956) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2013
The beer has a great amber, orange color with a nice minimal white head but with great lacing that clings for a while, great carbonation (we don’t get sixpoint here normally). The smell has awesome piney notes, mild citrus notes. The taste is great with a well balance pine taste, that leads into bitter notes that linger around. The aftertaste is great with mild lingering bitterness and hints of citrus and but with great carbonation that leaves carbonation bubbles hanging on. The overall impression is good because this is a great IPA but something I would not seek out if other IPAs aren’t available. But still decent a IPA.

I love how a lot of US brewers are starting to make IPAs with more citrus and less bitterness - Bengali Tiger is probably the best of this breed. Cloudy, copper colored, with a tall, luxurious head. Hops are somewhat resiny with notes of orange, grapefruit, lemon, kiwi. Very well-balanced. The malt profile has some toast and just a bit of caramel.

ROGUE (2200) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 1, 2013
12oz can. Poured a medium copper color with a two finger pillowy white head that had good retention and lacing. The aroma has a strong upfront resiny citrus hop and a distinct white pepper aroma. The taste consisted of citrus and peppery hops and a solid doughy grain bill. The mouthfeel was full and creamy with moderate carbonation.

(can) orange-gold with white head. Bready malt aroma with a little hops. Flavor is well balanced between bready malt and earthy hops.
