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.

Deep amber pour with a rocky cream head’. Nose is a bouquet if florals, spicy, caramel, rich malts, and bitter. Very smooth on the palate, bitter, malts, dough, spices, and a grainy finish.

16 oz can pours a cloudy orange with long lasting beige head and stripes of lacing (as advertised). Aroma is full of citrus and piney hops with light caramel malts and some hay. Taste is sweet at first, with a long, dry hoppy finish. Body is light to medium. Mouthfeel is sticky and creamy, with just enough carbonation. A decent IPA, and the best offering from SixPoint I have tried so far.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2013 Re-rate 2/6/13: Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks tomer. Fresh, fruity, citric and floral hops, a bit "green" and a bit of caramelly malt. Lovely. 8/3/7/3/15=3.6

Bottle. Hazy deep orange-amber color with a quickly-diminishing medium white head. Nice lacing. Pleasant aroma of piney, resinous and grapefruity hops. Flavor has some chewy malt, somewhat sweet, a bit caramelly, and big resinous and piney hops bitterness with a grapefruit note in the aftertaste. Medium-bodied. A good IPA. 8/3/7/3/14=3.5

Can. Pours a nice orangey color with nice, white head and decent retention. Piney-citrus hops on the nose, citrus and pineapple on the palate, very nice IPA and a lot better than the other Sixpoint offerings I’ve had so far.
