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.

Beer pours clear golden color with a retained off white colored head. Aroma is predominantely hoppy, though a bit different from the West Coast IPAs I am used to. Taste is bitter and substantially yeasty. This strikes me as a Belgian IPA. Pretty tasty!

Goodgrief (1844) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAY 20, 2015
On tap at Shellhammers. Dark golden color with outstanding lacing. Truly beautiful lacing with a ring at every sip. Citrus aroma. Biscuity malt with citrus hops and a lot of caramel. A little cloying. Just ok.

KoRoBeNiKi (63) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Can. Appearance amber beer with a bit of hale and a solid creamy head. Aroma: Orange, sweet citrus, a hint of bitterness. Taste: Same as aroma with a little biterness at the end to help balance out, nice. Palate: Refreshing, "crispy" (even more maybe than well Crisp) It’s like crisp, with a bit less alcohol and arguably better balance, solid.

rjplumer (624) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Bold pine floral aroma. Clear bronze body topped with a foamy inch thick head to start. A pronounced bitter bite to starts. Has a mild sweetness in the background. Clean malt taste with a dry crisp finish. Well rounded and balanced. Has just been added to my go-to list of IPA’s.

Gbgbrouge (317) - SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2015 Poured from can, slightly hazy pale amber with full head. Wonderul aroma of fruit, citrus and pine over caramel. Taste is bitter with a medium body, notes of citrus, grass, resin and some cereals leading to long bitter finish. A little on the hoppy side and I love it!

tectactoe (3081) - Michigan, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Tap: Slightly amber & orange colored with mild clarity. Soapy white head leaves some spotty lacing behind. Aroma is subdued; grassy hops, bitter citrus, baked biscuits, pine, florals, tangerine rind, a bit of herbal leafiness. Flavor is staunchly bitter; heavy pine tree, herbal tea, musty earth, ashy leaves, & grass. Some grapefruit pith, orange zest, & lemon rind in the back-end, finishing with a touch of biscuit malt. Lingering with bitterness & a small twinge of soapiness. Dry-ish body, almost resinous. Decent.

echudy (45) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Nice hop aroma, and strong golden color. Hop forward flavor with a good aftertaste. Lower alcohol percentage than some others, but very drinkable

A great IPA, great colour for an IPA and nice fruity aroma. Hop bitterness hits you upfront but nice malty flavour soon balances beer with quite a dry finish

355ml can from Whole Foods - Tribeca, New York. BB19MAR2016. Thanks Jesse! 

Dark orange colour with a big white head. Caramel, hops, fruits. More malty side IPA, not so refreshing but decent still.

rentonj7 (88) - Bridgeport, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Deep amber with quickly fading head that leaves lasting lacing. Floral hops and biscuit malts on nose. Gentle pine and orange notes balance with caramel malts. Long clean finish that slowly turns from sweet to bitter. It doesn’t stand out for any one characteristic, but is a perfectly balanced english IPA with no weaknesses.
