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.

Can at the dutch, poured an hazy amber hue, small head reduces to a small cap. Scent filled with pine and citrus. Taste adds caramel and slight peach suddleness. Balance is good. Mouth is light and slicky. Light carbonation. A good ipa, like the use of english yeast. Rated via BeerBuddy

Dogbrick (8149) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Sample from can at the Strange Brew Tasting on 02/18/2012. The beer pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a medium fluffy off-white head that burns away to a film eventually. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium body with a grapefruity hops character and notes of malt in the background. The finish is citrusy with a moderately bitter hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Cloudy orange medium bodied English style IPA. Simple, yet evenly balanced between citrus hops and caramel malts. Sixpoint picked the right beer to can in a tall boy.
