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.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2011 16oz can poured into a pint glass. Never had a craft beer in a can before. Hops are somewhat overwhelming at first, strong pine notes. I get an almost wheat beer like taste behind the hops, some banana maybe? Not the best IPA I’ve had, but certainly not the worst.

Can. Brownish tan. Lacing on sides. Smells of hops, carmel, malt and pineapple. Taste is hoppy with a malty backbone. Almost like a rye. Regardless, it stays interesting throughout the beer. Very good

Picked up 4 pack of cans for Thursday night poker game. Tastes hoppy with slight tangerine orange, grainy malt, floral, and plenty of caramel. Bitterness kicks in at the end.

500 ml can. Amber-brown pour with a thin head. Aroma is quite hoppy, very fruity smelling with notes of pineapple and peaches. Taste is rich and hoppy with good caramel sweetness, quite fruity again on the taste. Sweet at first with a nice lingering bitter finish. Palate is smooth and well carbonated. I’d love to be able to buy cans of this at my local store.

On tap at J. Ryan’s in Syracuse last weekend. Served in a pint glass. Pours a dark orange color with a good white head and some spotty lacing on the way down. The nose brought forward a moderate amount of hops -- citrus and some pine, mostly. The flavor had a bit of a malt backbone with some light bread. Taste was slightly grainy, and added in a bit of hop flavor. Some pine and just a bit of citrus. Medium body with a bit of a bitter, dry finish. Not a bad brew, but not something I would go out of my way to try again, though I love that they’re canning now. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-04-2011

On tap at Pony Bar. Poured a clear amber with a white head that dissipated slowly to the edges and laced slightly. Aroma had a combination of pine and citrus with a hint of resin. Flavor was similar but had a good amount more grapefruit coming out in the finish as well as a bit of resin throughout.

Draft at North Star on 5/20/11. Pours a cloudy dark orange color with golden tangerine edges when held to a light and a one finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic lacing left behind. Sweet citrus hop aroma with a sweet malt presence. Slightly earthy with faint pine needle but mostly sweet smelling. Hints of caramel, biscuit, toffee and rye underneath the citrus notes. Fuller bodied than expected with a dry earthy hop presence that has a nice amount of piny bitterness as well as some prominent citrus flavor. Hints of pineapple, mango, papaya and orange peel. Stronger hop presence than the aroma suggests. Nice malt backbone provides balance with hints of rye, caramel and biscuit. Slight heat toward the end of the swallow. Nice balance of bitter and sweet with a dry finish.

A - Pours a bright slightly hazy copper-orange color with a big finger of frothy white head. The head fades down slowly to a thin layer leaving behind some lacing. S - Aroma is full of floral and citrus hops with some nice grapefruit notes. Also some bready and caramel malts and some biscuit mixed in. T - Starts off with some sweet caramel malt flavor and a hit of citrus hop flavor with a good amount of bitterness. Through the middle some floral hop flavor and bready flavor comes through. The finish is a mix of some bitterness and grassy hops with a bit of sweet malt that lingers nicely. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels really smooth and crisp and a bit dry. The bitterness in the creates a really nice dry kick at the finish. D - Very drinkable. Everything is nicely balanced and the hop profile is really nice. The bitterness really kicks in nicely at the finish.

Tap at Tonys place. An English style IPA. Very balanced indeed. Hops aroma and taste are more floral than citrusy. Malt caramel base, nice beer.

iowaherkeye (2690) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - MAY 1, 2011
64oz growler, $7.99 at Brew York UWS. Clear honey amber with a 1 1/2 finger creamy off-white head, fading to a thick ring and film after a minute or so, but does rouse a little. Hops are mainly spicy with a bit of herbal grassy and woody notes (reminds me of Hallertauer), a bit grainy and bready malt. Flavor adds just a little light orange hops, but they’re mainly as they were in the aroma. Minimal sweetness, the finish is dry, bitterness peaking at a 4-5. Burps with some nice dry hopped flavor. Creamy medium body with low smooth carbonation. Not finding any faults, but kinda boring to me. Also, not too huge on English IPAs
