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 hopsÖ 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 aromaÖ 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; itís the mark of the Tiger.

A simply fantastic IPA, with superior balance and exceedingly fresh flavor! Pours a classic pale orange color, with lots of smooth lacing and a steady white foamy head. Pleasant west coast hop aroma, balanced by a slightly caramel-accented warm malt contrast. Solid hoppy bitterness up front, but transitions to a very complex malty flavor profile, with a grapefruit resin background, truly a perfectly balanced IPA. Medium bodied with a smooth finish, highly recommended!!

Thanks to Bob for sharing! Great floral nose. The beer starts floral and intense. Fruity with an absolutely round but slightly grainy body. Smooth, floral piney hops, great stuff.

Smells of sweet malts and citrus hops great balance in the smell. Clear amber color small off white head the dissipates very quickly. Taste starts off with slightly sweet malts with some lemon and floral taste coming through. This brew has a great bitter dry finish. Med body slightly sticky on the tougue with light crisp carbonation. Love the creeping bitter flavor that doesnít fully hit your palate till the very end. Nice work.

Reid (2235) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Pint poured from a 32 oz growler filled at Growl Movement in Salem OR $7 Clear deeper gold coloured ale with a nice thick and frothy cream coloured head. Nice hoppy aroma mainly resiny and floral comes to mind. The malts are always present. Fantastic juicy hop explosion at first taste..it continues with abit of resin showing and finishes dry. The caramel malt flavours provide strong backing. Nice medium and lively mouth feel. A very drinkable IPA..nice east coast IPA ( non murky).
