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. Hazy orange pour with foamy head and nice lacing. Aroma is strong mint hops, earthy hops, spicy hops, medium grain, hint of rye? Flavor is minty, light rye, huge spicy/earthy hops, medium grain and biscuit as well. Full mouthfeel with medium carbonation and a mildly bitter finish.

Draft at Tampa Palms WOB. Pours a slightly hazed copper amber color with a foamed white head. Aroma has some hop funkiness to it. Flavor has hoppy gapefruit and pineapple notes with a touch of sweetness in the finish. Somewhat watery mouthfeel.

Above average IPA, but by no means world class. Delicious and balanced, with a great hop bitterness and meaningful complexity. Gives a bit more fizziness than my personal taste, but I’d certainly buy this again.

There’s an OK malty aroma, but it’s very messy. Papery taste. Pretty crap. My notes do say "like a shit IPA", and as this is an IPA, I guess that makes it a shit IPA.

Solid, if a bit boring IPA. There’s a spicy, almost rye quality to the flavor. Refreshing, not too heavy.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks tomer. Pours clear reddish amber with white ring. Hoppy fruit aroma: peach, mago as well as faint skunkiness. Dry, bitter taste. Light body, dry, bitter finish. Good.

Bulk_Carrier (3637) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - FEB 10, 2013
It pours a hazy orange/amber with a large foamy off-white head that lasts for a good portion of the brew. Clingy foamy lacing graces the sides of the glass. The smell is hops, pine, and citrus up front, malts come in as the beer warms. The taste is sweet yet bitter at different times ranging between the hops/pine/citrus to the malts, very balanced. The palate is medium and has a nice creaminess around the tongue. This is very sessionable as the ABV is not felt. It leaves a watery aftertaste and finish. Overall, this is a solid AIPA that I would come back to, and lighter than most AIPA’s on the palate.

nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2013
12oz can, amber/orange pour, slight hoppy aroma. The caramel flavor comes through, as well as some earthy notes. I believe this has the possibilities of a great ipa, right now it just seems to be in need of some tweaking. Not well balanced, lacking hop flavors. Decent, not great.
