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.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2012
Can. Pours a nice golden orange color with a frothy white head. Aroma is quite hoppy with notes of ctirus, pine, herbal notes and resin along with some sweet malt. The flavor follows the aroma, fairly bitter with a nice hop profile, lots of citrus, some blood orange, pine, resin and the herbal notes backed by a sweet malt backbone. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a great example of an East Coast IPA!

Can. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This a good brew.

Scopey (7434) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2012
Can at Chriso’s Fullers-Gales tasting, thanks to Leighton. It pours clear orange, with a thin off-white head. The nose is orange, tangerine, marmalade, spice and sweaty sock. The taste is orange, tangerine, mango, hay and grass, with a dry, leathery finish. Medium body and (overly) high carbonation. Ok, but not outstanding.

mcmisko (352) - New York, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Pours copper with a white head. Smells very floral with pine and citrus. Taste has caramel, citrus, flowers, nuts, and a bitter dry hop finish. This is not bad, but not one of my go to IPAs.

hollardustin (327) - Indiana, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Pours hazy orange with a medium creamy white head. The aroma is faint citrus, pine, grass, and candy. The taste is hoppy and earthy with good hop bitterness and there’s a long dry, bitter finish. The bitterness is definitely at the level of American IPA’s, but this one is more like an English IPA. Good balance with the malt and a medium heavy body and nice lasting mouthfeel. I’d prefer American hops, but this one is pretty good as-is.

(Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Amber colour with brief, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with orange peel, caramel, treacle toffee and slightly earthy hops. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of orange peel, caramel, treacle and hints of earthy hops and pine needles in a dry, quite bitter finish. Medium body. Solid and well made IPA.

Vaiz (3567) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2012
Tap @ Olivier Twist, Stockholm. Hazy orange pour, thin white head. Aroma of spicy hops, somewhat meaty and sweaty with a hint of cinnamon. Flavor is. Bitter hoppy but also quite spicy and a bit strange sweaty. A bit out of balance. Strange brew.

gyllenbock (5030) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 29, 2012
On tap at Oliver Twist, February 2012. Slightly hazy amber with a small white head. Very hoppy and bitter. Notes of alcohol and metal. Drinkable but far from the best IPA out there.
