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.

I love how a lot of US brewers are starting to make IPAs with more citrus and less bitterness - Bengali Tiger is probably the best of this breed. Cloudy, copper colored, with a tall, luxurious head. Hops are somewhat resiny with notes of orange, grapefruit, lemon, kiwi. Very well-balanced. The malt profile has some toast and just a bit of caramel.

PotjeBier (2624) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2016
12 oz can from De Bierkoning at home, as Bengali (6.5%), bbe Nov. 2017. Deep golden to orange color, slightly hazy. Big, rocky off-white head, with some retention and some lacing. Aroma’s of resin and some citrus. Citrus is more prominent retronasal. Flavor is moderate bitter, with some citrussy sourness. Medium bodied. Long finish, slighty dry and rather bitter. Not as impressive as The Puff & Resin, but a nice IPA anyway.

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.
