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.

Tasted from can at Standard Market, Westmont. While most Americaqn versions are copper or gold in color, this one is back to a lighter gold. Indeed, the malts are on an equal footing with the hops. Despite the use of English hops, I still get some nice citrusy notes. I’m also starting to notice the increased level of alcohol, however slight. Makes me want to take it in all the more.

Aroma: citrus, honey, some grass. Medium intencity Taste: incredible mix of sweet, bitter and sour flavors. From the start it taste like sweet malt and honey. In the middle it’s distinctively hoppy with grass and pine notes. In the end unveils it’s citrus heart. Great beer

12 oz. can poured into a tulip. Pours light amber/copper with a solid one finger white head. Head grudgingly recedes leaving tiger stripes of lace. Citrus and pine resin aroma, quite sharp. Taste is hop forward with a good amount of malt balance. I’d say bitter on the tongue with a slight sweetness on the back end. Medium bodied with a lingering bitterness.

RedSox2004 (1668) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Just about clear gold with a one-finger pure white head, decent retention and sticky rings of lace. Citrus and resin aromas jump out front with support from caramel and hints of earth and medicine. Crisp hop bitterness plays off a smooth malt backbone. Medium body, generous carbonation, sticky creamy mouthfeel and a crisp finish. Much closer to a West Coast IPA than an English IPA, as the malt was rather muted.
