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.

Bengali tiger is a sparkling, cloudy golden ale with a small white head that fades. It has a bold aroma of pine and orange peel. It’s pretty full and smooth with a very dry, numbing finish. It tastes bitter, resiny and fruity with notes of orange, peach, or apricot. It has a long bitter aftertaste.

16oz can. The pour is a deeper clear orange with a billowing, off-white head. Nice retention. The nose is perfumey hops to the max almost like lavender perfume and rose hips. Gets a little too phenolic for me as well- industrial plastic. Very intense. Headache inducing. Taste is odd- soapy, thinner, squashy, melon rind. Suddy on palate. At least its not sticky sweet and cheesy. But wow, what a weird hop profile. Almost like overdone hop extract.

Marheb (2020) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2011
Très inoffensif en entrée avec une amertume florale et même épicées en milieu de bouche. Beaucoup d’effervescence avec cette finale de gazon mouillé. Différent mais pas nécessairement extraordinaire.

Pours a dark orange with a peppery and fruity aroma. Bitterness sticks around but doesn’t overpower. Hops stick at the roof of the mouth. Good sparkle to it as well

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2012 Re-rate: Criosp and bitter hops abound and as jack Burton once said...shakes the pillars of heaven. Yeah three of these in a row will do that. I’ve tow four packs of this since the original funk-pack. Bouncing off the freshly painted walls and my back doesn’t hurt at all! Four pack from the rip and run. First can was funky.. and not in a good way. That was a few days ago. Since I had recycled the cardboard box and then it blew to Kansas when Irene blew my recycling can over, I felt a bit lost since it was$8.99 that I would probably not ever see again. In addition, there are sober children in China that can do math better than me so I figured I better at least empty out the three remaining cans for the deposit value. Scientific and ecologic curiosity got the better of me and I poured the second one into a glass. After all, I am running low on beer after being home bound during the storm. Eureka! I cried as the second can was actually quite the opposite of the first. Piney citrus that turns into a pleasant biting grapefruit. Backed up by a solid malt bill, I slowly hang my head to the fact that I should have sent one of these Bert’s way. The funk variable is distressing. Hopefully an anomaly.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2012 One more IPA on Tap at Mad mex in Cranberry, but this one was full of florals and resins, cloudy honey color and nice head. March 2012 Can still all same except loss of florals, perhaps related to can age.

Had the opportunity to try this at iron abbey beer dinner, a very good ipa. Nice hoppiness. Good beer.

This amber orange with a beige head beer has a earthy EKG aroma from the start, strong caramel, but some inconsistencies that muddle the whole thing. The fermentation seems like it has issues, it comes off as dirty, not nicely earthy, the caramels come off as borderline diacetyl. The contracted cans don’t seem as good as the ratings for the original brewery recipes.
