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.

brigg (532) - Washington DC, USA - APR 1, 2012
(16oz can) Very cloudy orange amber body with a medium to big, stiff off-white head. Aroma of straw, musk, but not very strong. Medium body, resin. Fairly sweet malt flavor, fruity with mild grapefruit, tangerine, some mango; also wet grass and pine; bitterness is moderate and floral. A little different, and some good things going on, but something holds it back from being better; I’m not sure what.

Lukaduke (2549) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 28, 2012
A great beer ! Pours a deep copper color with a big fluffy head that laces around the glass very nicely. This is my kind of IPA, well balanced with hops, resin, pine and citrus. Clean refreshing and not overly bitter like alot of American IPAs ! Will be buying more of these for sure !

BOLTZ7555 (2935) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Sampled at the Waldorf. Really muddy 14 karat gold with a small eggshell head. Aroma of candied oranges, toffee, brown sugar and caramel malts. Flavor similar. Not at all bright or aggressive. A bit boring. Pass.

KornDogg (546) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Can poured into a Duvel glass. Aroma of grapefruit and malts. Hazy orange body with thin lasting head, nice lacing. Flavor begins with sweet citrus; grapefruit and orange, strong hops with a malty finish. Bitter aftertaste.

Boutip (5033) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2012
Can: Poured a hazy amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry hoppy notes with light caramel malt notes. Taste is also dominated by light dry bitter hoppy notes with some floral undertones and some semi-sweet caramelized malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. Overall, I thought this was lacking some hops punch but it is still an enjoyable beer.

Lowe1983 (1369) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Pours a cloudy, amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of citrus and pine hops with some caramel malts. Flavor wasn’t exactly what I was hoping for from the aroma. The hops aren’t as up front as they were on the aroma. Slightly hoppy finish but nothing too crazy.
