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.

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.

my 4th favorite of 5 Sixpoint brews, and the 3 above this were all hoppy. After those, this one just seemed so restrained as to a fault. An average ipa, or slightly better."

12 oz can thanks to Mg228. Thanks Mark! The pour is a deep orangey hold with a voluminous white head and some great lacing. It fades down to about an eighth inch thick layer of foam. The aroma has got a great citrus note to it, and a good piney resin. There is a little metallic note on the back end. The flavor is more metallic and resiny. There is a light fruit presence but the resin really takes over. The mouth feel is solid, with a good carbonation to help the body and the aftertaste is resin and lingering. Pretty good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ReV2 (147) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2014
Can in Wetherspoon’s Coventry. Poured with a good white head, aroma of citrus and honey. Taste smooth and malty with a generous though not overdone hop finish, floral & grassy. The best beer I’ve ever had from a can.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2086) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 19, 2014
Can from a mix 6-pack from Binny’s South Loop. Served on a plastic pilsner glass. A deep gold with a big fluffy head. It has a really nice nose of fruity hops. The taste is sweet at first then mellows into a solid clean bitterness. Not so exciting but a well made IPA nevertheless.

Mr_Pink_152 (718) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2014
Can from Royal Hop Pole Twekesbury. Deep golden colour with thick white head. Aroma has plenty of hops and so does the taste. It has some bite, and is maybe a touch to sharp for my taste.

joejames (128) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Can to shaker glass. Pours hazy orange amber. Two finger head, loads of lacing. Aroma is earthy, grass, herbs and a touch of orange peel. Taste is very balanced between the sweetness of the malts and the old world hops -caramel and bitter almond. Highly carbonated, medium body, slightly soapy mouth feel. Finishes on the bitter side with notes of tangerine, pine nut, resin with caramel underlining. Very nice for the old world style of IPAs.
