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 clear amber with a thick foamy head. Smells of resin, floral, herbs. Taste is sweet then bitter, maltiness up front followed by a sharp but not overpowering hop taste.

Ughsmash (7364) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 21, 2012
16oz can. Poured medium orange with a sticky, mostly white head. The aroma picked up earth, citrus, and grassy hoppage over soft bread and caramel malts.. a little warm on the back of the nose.. well-balanced. The flavor found biscuit and caramel maltage at the core, with grassy and citrus bitterness around.. sharp and kind of peppery on the long, grainy finish.. a bit harsh. Medium-bodied with rolling carbonation on the palate.. OK-ish balance, but it went downhill after the nose.

Can: pours hazy copper, velvety one finger bright white head. Great retention and nice lacing. Nose is toast, herbal, caramel malts, orange rind, spice, resin. On the palate, herbal, caramel malt sweetness, earthy, spicy hop bitterness from the dry hopping. The drying bitterness is pleasant and balanced. This beer grew on me once I got into it as it was quite drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shared with some bros. Pours a hazy orange with a fluffy head out of a nicely designed 16 oz can. Nice, citrus aroma reminds me a big of mandarin oranges. Flavor is light citrus with a nice resinous pine in the finish. Would definitely try this one again.

IrishBoy (3958) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 13, 2012
16 oz can from TheEpeeist. Nose is citrus, with light grass, floral ,pine, and caramel. Hazy light amber with a medium lightly lacing cream head. Flavor is lightly piney resin, bitterness and lots of caramel malt. It actually does "tiger stripe" the glass with the lacing!

Smells.. hoppy. Tastes.. like an IPA. Definitely has a better balance than most standard IPAs, although I think the description overdoes it on the strength of the malts in here. I’d reach for it again if I was in the mood for an IPA, which I’m usually not. (2x IPAs are another story!)

andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2012
Hazy amber with a dense white head leaving a generous amount of lazing behind. Aroma is mostly caramell and grass with some doughy yeast and sweet tangerine. Flavor is better with more piney and fruity hops alongside a solid and nicely balanced maltybess. The end is bitter but balanced with citrus ans grass notes. Body is medium and quite slick with finely tuned carbonation.

benpickens (442) - Camarillo, California, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Pours with an orange hue reminiscent of orange marmelade; creamy dense white head - leaves huge thick rings of belgian lace in the glass; citrus (surprise) aromas and those of burnt sugar and molasses... very oily mouth feel long bitter finish. Impressive.

Can pours a cloudy orange with a thin lacing white head. Scent is caramel and fruity. Taste is same with a citrus hoppy finish.
