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.

Nice IPA that gravitates more to a ESB profile than the Cali inspired IPAs of today. Orange, hazy with a creamy head, floral and light sweet cereal in the aroma. Dry and bitter throughout, more floral notes with citrus rind backed with a light malty sweetness. Lasting dry/bitter finish. Quite elegant.

Weird skinny can. Gold with a small white head. Slightly above average carbonation. Orange and pineapple dominate both aroma and flavour. There is a little caramel in the flavour as well. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Franckg (1108) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2016
Canette avec un BB du 07/12/2016. Robe dorée légèrement trouble surmontée d’un col de mousse moyennement dense. Arômes de zestes d’agrumes, pamplemousse, résine de pin, citron, un peu de fruits tropicaux, malt légèrement caramélisé. En bouche, pamplemousse et autres agrumes, zestes de pamplemousse, mangue, résine de pin et grains maltés avec touche caramélisée. Finale amère et résineuse avec pamplemousse et pelures d’ananas. Texture huileuse et corps mince. Très bien.

Slautar (491) - Gdañsk, POLAND - AUG 14, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2016 Piwna Stopa, Poznań, 04.08.2016. Piłem tydzień temu i oceniam z pamięci stąd tylko ogólne wrażenia będące raczej swego rodzaju porównaniem niż właściwą oceną. Tygrysa degustowałem tuż po Califii od Trzech Kumpli i piwa te wydały mi się dość podobne z tym że Tiger było trochę mniej aromatyczne i trochę mniej intensywne w smaku (będąc oczywiście nadal w obu tych aspektach dobrym piwem).
