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.

Can. Pour is a hazy orange with a nice beige head, tons of lacing/retention. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, floral hops, caramel, biscuit malt. Taste is bitter, lots of grapefruit and floral notes with a sweet base. Palate is clean, oily, bitter finish.

This poured a darker yellow to orange colorw tih a white head. Aroma was some old hops, salt water and pale malt. Flavor was salty and astringent, something definately wrong here. Barely tastes like in IPA

Nice IPA that had alot of big flavors and complexity. Not too heavy and just about right. Sixpoint does it again.

Pours gold with a nice white head. Smells resiny and spicy with some juicy citrus undertones. Tastes spicy and lightly resiny with some nice bitter citrussy elements emerging as the beer warms. Finishes spicy and bitter. Nicely balanced.

BrooHa (120) - New York, USA - SEP 22, 2011
Looks good. Cooper with nice bubbles. Decent off-white head quickly dissipates with some lacing. Scent is piney, a little cat-pissy. Smells... sharp. A little peppery. Lightish mouthfeel. Slightly bitter. Not sweet like other IPAs. Something weird. Not necessarily bad but weird. It reminds me of a peppery, dry saison in the finish rather than an IPA. An interesting beer but not what I was looking for in an IPA. Will pass on this next time.

A big bombing ipa experience. Cloudy pale yelwer. On style. Sweet piercing big personality. Long bitter rude finish. Overall dull thud. Oily mouth coating scented hand soap experience as with any real IPA. Wew. This is more on style than those other sixpoints I’ve tasted. Burping pine and spruce needle happy ending. Over the top fer sure, did I already say wwweeewww? Yes, quite high on the ipa scale, almost double. Aroma saves it, as with any good ipa IMHO.
