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 (3539) - Lake Champlain, 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. Poured a hazy golden Amber with a slight haze and a lasting, lacing white to off-White head stop. Aromas of pine, tangerine, peach and citrus with some sweeter caramel and brown sugar malt accents. Similar to taste. Good body from the malt. A little earthy towards the back end. Moderate carbonation with a medium length and intensity bitterness to finish.
