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.

Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - DEC 19, 2012
On the Sixth Day of Christmas the beer Gods gave to me... a local IPA. Pours an orange color with an amber hue. Aroma of hop spice, citrus, and caramel. Has a light sweet taste with grassy notes and a caramel finish. Not complete. Grassy but not resiny. Light feel. Needs something. More malt. More body. Something.

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - DEC 18, 2012
16 oz. can via trade with DrSilverworm - Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a one finger thick off white head that lasts. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is pine, herbs, and light citrus. Flavor is floral and light citrus hops with the addition of some light malt sweetness. Finish is smooth and not too bitter. Medium body. A very good beer. Thanks Chris.

jbruner (3989) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 14, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2012 Pours a hazy golden orange on tap with frothy white head that dissipates to leave great lacing. Aroma of slight grapefruit and earthiness from the hops. Taste is thin too, but mostly hops, a bit of english pale malts. Decent, nothing to write home about.

blklab2007 (2118) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Can poured an orange amber in color with a covering of off white head. Aroma has sweet fruit, pine resins, decent malt level, and some sweet perfume. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation on the lower side. Flavor brings in some bitterness, resins, sweet fruits, grains, and a well rounded supporting malt core.

travita (4847) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 11, 2012
Can. The look is clear, orange pumpkin pie colored, and has a lacy off white head. The smell is piney, hops, caramel, some grapefruit, and citrus. The taste is a decent crisp lingering bitterness, caramel, fruit, and hops.

Excellent American pale ale. Has a nice bite of hops and just enough fruit taste. Goes down smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ttoadee (1286) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Amber pour with orange highlights, thick off-white head. Plentiful hops in the nose, well mixed. Pleasantly bitter. Carmel malt and a variety of hops play well together through the middle. Nice sharp hop bite on the way out. Is this what the docks of Southampton smelled like awhile back? I hope so.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 25, 2012
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.
