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.

mcmisko (352) - New York, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Pours copper with a white head. Smells very floral with pine and citrus. Taste has caramel, citrus, flowers, nuts, and a bitter dry hop finish. This is not bad, but not one of my go to IPAs.

hollardustin (327) - Indiana, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Pours hazy orange with a medium creamy white head. The aroma is faint citrus, pine, grass, and candy. The taste is hoppy and earthy with good hop bitterness and there’s a long dry, bitter finish. The bitterness is definitely at the level of American IPA’s, but this one is more like an English IPA. Good balance with the malt and a medium heavy body and nice lasting mouthfeel. I’d prefer American hops, but this one is pretty good as-is.

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2012
(Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Amber colour with brief, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with orange peel, caramel, treacle toffee and slightly earthy hops. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of orange peel, caramel, treacle and hints of earthy hops and pine needles in a dry, quite bitter finish. Medium body. Solid and well made IPA.

Vaiz (3396) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2012
Tap @ Olivier Twist, Stockholm. Hazy orange pour, thin white head. Aroma of spicy hops, somewhat meaty and sweaty with a hint of cinnamon. Flavor is. Bitter hoppy but also quite spicy and a bit strange sweaty. A bit out of balance. Strange brew.

omhper (19670) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2012
Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Hazy amber, rocky head. Intensely citric with tangerine, grapefruit and lychee. Solid bodied with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Salty grapefruit with backed by clean, slightly caramelly malt, followed by long bitterness with resiny undertones. Thoroughly solid IPA.

gyllenbock (4864) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 29, 2012
On tap at Oliver Twist, February 2012. Slightly hazy amber with a small white head. Very hoppy and bitter. Notes of alcohol and metal. Drinkable but far from the best IPA out there.

TheJestersBeer (2116) - SWEDEN - FEB 29, 2012
Draught. Pours a slightly hazy medium amber, with very little head. The aroma is markedly hoppy, quite floral, spruce, apricots, grapefruit/orange peel, pine resin, caramel, slightly grainy. Off-dry, medium body, medium to high bitterness, remarkably low CO2. The taste is just as hoppy, quite fruity, lots of apricot and grapefruit, caramel, floral/spicy notes, I pick up something like Sorachi (?). Quite long finish, with a lingering bitterness. Straightforward, not fantastic. (2012-02-29)

screigh (462) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy light orange color. Thin white head with a bit of lacing. I get some malt in the aroma surrounded by floral hops. If you wait long enough in the finish I get hints of rye even though there doesn’t appear to be any in this. Some sweetness and balances nicely with the bitterness.

mtjoseph (244) - Murderapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Can. Pours really nice colored golden orange with a small white head. What an aroma! Big resinous aroma of pure floral notes with a little bit of citrus behind fresh flowers and dandelions. Not exactly what I was expecting from this. Tastes like I’m drinking flowers. Just big potpourri notes, fresh cut grass, and a hair of citrus. Very unique for an IPA. I really like this beer a lot!

Can from Gianni. Slight haze, golden color with a frothy white head. Really nice smelling ipa. Loads of potpourri like character, grassy, citrus, and pine. Really interesting, different, well balanced, and really nice overall for the aroma. Taste is caramel, white pepper, some grapefruit, and a dryer finish. Finishes some some peach flavors. I really like the aroma, and the flavor is nice but isn’t on the same level. Light to medium bodied. Good stuff.
