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.

I usually don’t enjoy IPAs unless they are very tasty. This was one of those IPAs.

16 ounce can purchased from Bark’s Beer Cave in Plattsburgh. The aroma is mosly piney with some hempy notes and light candi sugars. Nicely aromatic. Moderately hazy, unfiltered copper-golden body with a yellowish head. Why is this IPA unfiltered. I hate that. Starts piney and a little floral before it becomes more herbal in the middle. Oily mouthfeel that almost seems to be diacetyl. Finishes with herbal and bitter hops. Not really exceptional, but good enough.

Can. Long description I don’t feel like reading before football game. Dark amber with minimal head. Strong hop with a weird wild funky edge. Thin with a weird crazy malt profile and a funky hopness.

AirForceHops (2939) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Four pack of 16 oz cans, purchased @ Smiley’s, Dover, NH. Used shaker glass. Amber color with orange hue. Light retention. Bold citrus hops and a bit of resin in the nose. Sweet malt balances the hops REAL nice in the taste. Mouthfeel has a very oily texture. Kind of average IPA, DON’T turn it down if offered or if you can get it on tap BUT, nothing you really need to seek out. For me the finish is a bit harsh. (a strange spice)

SpringsLicker (3108) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 3, 2011
Slightly hazy deep gold under a tall, sticky off-white head. Thick juicy malt aroma along with spicy herbal hops notes. The flavor is well balanced between the malt sweetness and the hop bitterness, but the hop presence is the stronger of the two by a slight amount. Nice bitter dryness in the finish. Nice IPA.

Light body but bright citrus nose and strong bitter finish. Pleasant but little here that will keep me coming back for more.

lamas (1339) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 29, 2011
16 oz. can. Best before: 02/14/12. A hazy amber pour with a thick and fluffy beige head that leaves chunks of lacing behind. A resiny aroma full of pine trees, grapefruits, sour lemons, citrus rinds, and some caramel maltiness. Medium body. Some semi-sweet caramel maltiness upfront taste-wise. Biscuity/doughy qualities in the middle with some spiciness. A dry finish with plenty of bittering citrus fruits. A tad sour at the end. A bit of a strange soapy/oily essence throughout.

LinusStick (2814) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Meh...not terrible but very average IPA. Aroma was pretty good. Grassy, lemon and dank grapefruit. Not very big but very noticeable. Pour was a cloudy light orange with a one finger white head. Taste was average. Medium mouth feel with not much substance. Started out nice. Bitter, grassy hops with not much malt to balance it out. The problem comes as it warms. The carbonation was gone before I finished the beer and the hoppiness gave way to a weird gasoline flavor. Very thin and watery. Weird.

Can. Has a nice citrus/grapefruit flavor with a medium hop bitterness. Pretty good overall.
