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.

Bulk_Carrier (2788) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - FEB 10, 2013
It pours a hazy orange/amber with a large foamy off-white head that lasts for a good portion of the brew. Clingy foamy lacing graces the sides of the glass. The smell is hops, pine, and citrus up front, malts come in as the beer warms. The taste is sweet yet bitter at different times ranging between the hops/pine/citrus to the malts, very balanced. The palate is medium and has a nice creaminess around the tongue. This is very sessionable as the ABV is not felt. It leaves a watery aftertaste and finish. Overall, this is a solid AIPA that I would come back to, and lighter than most AIPA’s on the palate.

Can acquired in at trade. Mild bitterness, tropical fruits, little bit pine, well balanced. I like my IPAs more extreme honestly.

AWISLguy (1827) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Super skinny 12oz can from the Malt Shoppe. Orangey pour. Some white-ish lace. Aroma has pine, pineapple and toffee. Taste is of sweet toffee, tangy pine and some citrus-y pineapple. Soft bready malts underneath with some chewy resin finish this off. Medium bodied with little alcohol presence. Finishes sweetly tangy. This one hit a bunch of checkboxes, and was solid, but didn’t love. 13.8

tillmac62 (451) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - AUG 18, 2015
BBD 7/23/16. Pours a clear medium amber. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Outstanding rich nose of citrus and tropical hops (grapefruit, tangerine, orange) coupled with pine and a touch of spicy spruce. A solid biscuit and caramel base lies underneath. Heavy light body with a smooth texture. Perfect carbonation with a nice effervescent burst in the middle and a strong finely bubbled prickly finish. The outstanding flavor profile is reasonably intense, fairly complex and excellently balanced. It begins with the blended hop flavors of the nose that slowly separate - pine flowing to fruit. The middle is moderately bitter (rind and pine) and where biscuit and caramel arrive to balance. As the finish approaches, orange and tangerine sweetness are in the forefront. The finish is fairly crisp and dry. A fading bitterness lingers.
