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.

Aroma of citrus and pine, comes off as a basic pale ale with some spicy yeasty notes. Medium amber, very lacy. Taste is citrus bitter, not knotty like the Resin, and sweet in equal parts malt and yeast. Very dry, medium body. Shared with family, well received all around.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - NOV 23, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2012 16oz can, best by February 17, 2013. Served at around 40-45F.

Pours hazy copper with a two finger white head that leaves clumpy drippy webs of lacing.

Unique aroma features big pine, peach/apricot, mango, spice, banana, caramel and bread, estery, wheat like, interesting as it comes across as a wheat IPA or Belgian IPA, but I don’t think that’s what they were going for. Very good strength in the aroma.

Flavor follows suit, pine, apricot, spice, fruity, rather malty with a strong caramel backbone, bready, some alcohol, mild sweetness, decent bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, sticky, good carbonation.

Interesting IPA. Give it credit for being unique, although far from my favorite in the style.

Pours an opaque amber-orange with a thin foam head that laces the glass completely. Light hop aroma of pine and citrus. Bitter citrus taste with moderate carbonation. Stale grapefruit aftertaste with a slight pine bite.

drowland (7881) - Georgia, USA - NOV 20, 2012
11/20/12. On tap at Kickback’s. Clearish golden pour with a small tan head that cuts but laces plenty. Mild grapefruit in the aroma with earthy hops, minerals, and soapiness. Soapy hops, grapefruit, earthy green hops, minerals, and light pale malts and caramel. Definitely not a hop punch, but hey, that’s what they wanted, right?

jhamp9 (1641) - Corinth, Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Clear golden orange pour with a nice white head. Great lacing. Caramel and citrus are prominent in the aroma with a hint of pine. Taste is more malt forward with some orange and grass. Bitterness comes through in the end. Very easy drinking.

msante79 (2224) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Pint can from Croxley’s. Pours lightly hazed amber with white head. Aromas of sweet malts, some pine, orange, and pungent hops. Flavors of orange, pine, sweet caramel malts, and moderate amount of hop bitterness. Hops and malt are lacking balance and ends kind of messy. Not bad, but not great either.

dresden (1435) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - NOV 7, 2012
Clearish amber, fizzy white head that laces really nicely. Some piney aroma, some citrusy too. It’s got a strong hop aroma, but not one i really love. Some tangerine and orange, but something weird too. Pretty malt forward IPA, lots of hop bitterness. Solid beer.

TChrome (1448) - Bedford, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Beer pours clear golden color with a retained off white colored head. Aroma is predominantely hoppy, though a bit different from the West Coast IPAs I am used to. Taste is bitter and substantially yeasty. This strikes me as a Belgian IPA. Pretty tasty!

The best of the sixpoint beers on my rollercoaster ride through them. I’m sure it’s because I’m partial to the style.

streve (105) - Maryland, USA - OCT 16, 2012
16oz can. Pour is a gorgeous amber with a finger of frothy off-white head. Aroma is mild of pine, grapefruit and toffee. Taste is delicious with a strong bitterness up that stick around through the finish and sticks after. Light to medium bodies. Notes of caramel, orange and citrus. Pretty damn good. Canned IPA’s are becoming more popular. I like.
