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.

weihenweizen (2266) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Refrigerated can best before Nov 19, 2012 from JoePeesie. Pours deep hazy orange with fuffy off-white head. Little lacing, medium body, low carbonation, and light citrus aroma. Taste is light grapefruit, off taste, some soap, and light bitter finish. Not that great.

bmerz (740) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Can. Another terrible beer from Sixpoint. Dark gold with good initial head and a little lace. Supposed English character is not well expressed. Aroma is weakly expressed and fairly dead citrus, spicy, earthy, pine. The taste and palate is so metallic it’s almost worth pouring...in fact I might still. Otherwise there some rank malt sweets and spicy, cool pine and grapefruit hop bitterness. Texture is slick, dead, cloying, and gritty. Yep, i’m pouring this one.

daknole (10320) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Copper pour, white head. Aroma is heavy on the citrus hops and some toffee hiding in the background. Flavor is loaded with citrus hops, tropical fruit, sweet caramel malt. Good stuff.

thome50 (1233) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Can, in the can, not a glass. Thus appearance is just thrown in there. Aroma is again, not totally applicable but you get next to nothing but malt from the can. Taste is malty and very English IPA. The hops are there but taste faded compared to the freshness date. Just bland and nothing I’d seek out again.

16oz can 5/19/12 (Binny’s Downers Grove Singles Rack)-42° in Shaker Glass-Pours a clear orangish amber with a loose off white head. Aroma of citrus and hops. Taste of the same with a bit more citrus. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty.

monkeychugg55 (966) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Golden copper with a small whtie head that settles to a thin layer and leaves a lot of lacing. The aroma is strong on the East Kent Goldings, with a good amount of caramel and bready malt. The flavor is very strong, with a lot of said hops blending well with dense, complex malt. Nice blend of sweet and bitter as well. Tasty stuff.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2012
16oz can from Armanetti’s. Pours a mostly clear, golden-orange colored body with an inch thick, dense and frothy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is pine resins and grass with some sweet oranges and grapefruits. Florals too with a fairly bready malt backing and a light caramel sweetness. Flavor is similar. Resiny, slightly spiced florals, pines, and grasses with some grapefruit and oranges. A bready, crackery pale malt backing with a light toffee and caramel sweetness to balance. Finishes dry and bitter with some crackers and light citruses before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent IPA. Pretty bitter and dry with some citruses and a lightly sweetened, crackery malt backing. Not bad.

nuplastikk (5090) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 15, 2012
500ml can. Unfiltered orange-tan with a frothy off-white head. Mild caramel and faint citrus hop aroma. A little too much body to be sessionable, but not rich or bold enough to sit back and sip on. There is some nice depth, and a well rounded hop bill. Mellows out, grows on you. Above average.
