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.

Hazy copper color in the glass with minimal white head. Aroma of citrus and resiny hops. Finds a nice balance on the palate with an assertive hop bitterness backed by a bready malt background. Lingering bitter hop finish.

Hazy amber color, medium sized yellow head. Malty, earthy, European hoppy scent. Malty, earthy, hoppy, some alcohol, yeast (brown bitter yeast), bitter taste. Sugary finish. Medium mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.
Bitterness is not so much from hops I’d say, more remeniscent from yeast and alcohol. Very weird and even a bit foul bitterenss. Initially put a bit higher in taste, but the bitterness puts me off so much I’d not want to buy this beer again.

Big can (woo hoo!) I’m eager to try this on the heels of the IIPA I had from Sixpoint a little while ago (Resin), so we’ll see how it holds up. Pours a dingy amber with a decent but ephemeral head . Looking closer reveals a little bit of particulate debris swirling around as well as some small streams of bubbles, but nothing really wildly active as far as late-releasing carbonation. Aromas are understated for an IPA... kind of an herbal edge with a little bit of pine and some lemon, but they are more subtle than I expected. Flavor is OK, but as far as IPA’s go, this one isn’t my cup of tea, so to speak. There is a decent caramel backbone which is a little more dominant than I would have liked, and the hops presence is more medicinal and herbal than I would have cared for. Much more English than American as far as IPA’s are concerned. Mouthfeel is pretty thick and chewy for the style and finish is sweet with a pine/medicinal edge.

_angst_ (3237) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2012
Can shared @ the Rover. Pours slightly hazy reddish golden with a small bubbly white head that quickly dissipates while leaving lots of lacing on the glass. Smell is subtle, slightly sweet, fresh and hoppy with caramel, wet soil, persimmon, mango, ripe sweet peaches, red currants and hints of bread. Taste is sweet, bitter and metallic with bread, orange peal, unripe peaches, wet leaves, freshly cut grass, pine and hints of caramel. Mouthfeel is crisp, oily bitter and light to medium bodied. Finish is very bitter and tiny sweet with oily pine, grass, resin and unripe tropical fruits.

Marsiblursi (3045) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2012
(Can) Pours hazy copper with an off-white head. The aroma holds earth, grass, orange and bread up front with undertones of oatmeal, rubber, grapefruit, spices, pine, herbs, toast and a touch of caramel. Nubby and "dark-ish" nose. The flavour is light sweet, medium to heavily (off-tasting) bitter and light acidic. Citric, earthy, light floral, light "green", bready and toasted. The mouthfeel is heavily astringent and soft with a light carbonation. Lingering, mega aggressive afterbitterness. Light to medium bodied.

jmilo64 (42) - Maine, USA - APR 21, 2012
drink date 4/19/12, from 16oz can, no glass. Nose is nice, hoppy. Taste is a little citris with a nice bitter finish but something I cannot place is off in the taste. It might be the can, drank this in the parking lot of a Whole Foods with lunch. Still a mostly solid beer.

Nephilium (1453) - Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2012
Caramel aroma with a hint of pine underneath. Pours a clear golden amber, with a thin white head which leaves good lacing. This is an amazingly well balanced IPA, strong caramel and malt notes, which quickly changes to earthy pine notes from the hops. Slightly slick mouthfeel, very long bitter finish, this isn’t a light beer. I am very impressed with this beer, especially at how well it is balanced. If you like IPA’s, give this one a shot.
