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.

Nephilium (1485) - Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2012
Caramel aroma with a hint of pine underneath. Pours a clear golden amber, with a thin white head which leaves good lacing. This is an amazingly well balanced IPA, strong caramel and malt notes, which quickly changes to earthy pine notes from the hops. Slightly slick mouthfeel, very long bitter finish, this isn’t a light beer. I am very impressed with this beer, especially at how well it is balanced. If you like IPA’s, give this one a shot.

Chudwick (2416) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - APR 18, 2012
16oz can - pours orange/amber with off-white head. Nose is citrus as in grapefruit. Flavor adds resin and caramel. Taste is seemingly overwhelmingly hoppy but delivers a sweet kick and ends balanced. Medium body with almost a dry finish. Very enjoyable.

DrnkMcDermott (2894) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2012
Tasted from can at Standard Market, Westmont. While most Americaqn versions are copper or gold in color, this one is back to a lighter gold. Indeed, the malts are on an equal footing with the hops. Despite the use of English hops, I still get some nice citrusy notes. I’m also starting to notice the increased level of alcohol, however slight. Makes me want to take it in all the more.

HonkeyBra (3706) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2012
16 oz. can. It pours a reddish orange color with a thin, whispy white head. Aroma of strong resin and leafy hops. Mild pine and citrus peel, touches of lemon and pineapple. Flavor has a fairly nice malt balance to the medium bitterness imparted from the hops. Leafy, grassy hops laden in a field of rich caramel and hawaiian bread. Nice, doughy malts, as well as some spicy herbal hop notes. Medium bodied. Finishes on a nice bitter note. Nice beer.

Hazy orange/ amber color. A piney citrus hop aroma. Earthy hop taste that ends mellow and clean. Refreshing body with a touch of sweetness. Nice balance with a strong hop hit that mellows out quick. Very drinkable.

JoePeesie (915) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2012
Pours a clean gold with off white head. Nose and taste is floral hops, nice sweet, well balanced beer for the most part. Great hoppy floral front meh middle and solid sweet fruity finish.

Thanks to djrn for sending this beer in a box full of goodies from Sixpoint. The beer pours a hazy orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma is full of pine and resin notes, with some bread notes thrown in. I also get some orange citrus in the aroma. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of bitter orange and pine notes with some bread and toffee thrown in for good measure. The bitterness is fairly high, but not overpowering. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
