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.

Pours a light amber with a finger of tan head. Aroma is heavy bitter pine citrus with some floral stickiness to it. Flavor has a lot more sweet caramel malt flavor. Some sips I get more bitter character and some less but the rich malt character is still there. Good IPA.

Tallahassee, Fl. - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 16 oz can. Pours a medium copper with a frothy, sticky snow white head. Aroma has some wort-like accents with a hint of molasses. Flavor has some caramel accents, a touch of molasses, some nuttiness in the back end. Faint fruitiness.Mouthfeel has a nice thickness to it with just the right amount of spritz.

16 oz. can to tulip, "best before Sept 2013." Pours cloudy copper gold with a creamy two finger head. Floral and pine aroma, nothing too complex. Flavor is faint pine and raw hops, but kinda faded hops here. Medium mouthfeel and a little flat. A bit boring, but not terrible.

For awhile there I was confusing Sixpoint Brewery with Blue Point Brewing. Both are from New York and contain the word "point." While I have been largely disappointed with Blue Point’s offerings, this fist Sixpoint beer was excellent. Pours burnt orange with a white head. The scent of citrus is deceiving as the flavor has hints of curry. I am not sure whether the beer’s name is causing my head to play tricks on me. Carbonation provides bite that compliments the hops.

jflopsu (1186) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Pours a rusty orange with a white head. Has a light floral hops with a hint of citrus. A nice hop flavor that isn’t too overpowering at first but has that lingering bitterness. Has some hints of orange.

Bricks (959) - Delaware, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Appearance is a smooth honey brown with a large offwhite head. Smells of dry citrus hops. Quite bitter, almost oily bitterness.. grass, caramel and hops on the taste, with a hint of citrus but not much.. not as much as I’d like. It’s decent.

A solid beer with major aspect of an IPA. Both the malts and hops are rock solid with a thick creamy head and palate. IPA fans take note ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
