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.

msante79 (2222) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Pint can from Croxley’s. Pours lightly hazed amber with white head. Aromas of sweet malts, some pine, orange, and pungent hops. Flavors of orange, pine, sweet caramel malts, and moderate amount of hop bitterness. Hops and malt are lacking balance and ends kind of messy. Not bad, but not great either.

dlihcsnatas (532) - Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Dark golden brew with thin head that hangs on. Smells and tastes of citrus hops, a bit like biting into a tangerine without peeling it. Very good brew but about $2 more per six pack to some comparable IPA’s. Would consider making this a regular if it wasn’t for the higher price.

LLaurin (158) - Motala, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2015
Appearing with a really nice and intense nose this beer gives you a lot of hope. The body and palate doesnt really match it. It is a nice hoppy taste - but a little short on the palate.

Rune (9995) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2015
355ml slim can, served in a tulip glass at Flying Horse (JDW), airside Gatwick airport. A fair, bubbly, beige head that stayed well over a hazy apricot coloured body. Fresh citrus on the nose. Taste of orange, pine, citrus peels and resin towards the ending. Fruity bitterness to the close. Well bodied. Tasty and refreshing (01.12.2015)
