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.

Pretty strong IPA...pours caramel, translucent. Piney up front wiht a bitter crisp end. Malt body tastes like it has some rye to it; it’s substantial without being over powering. Good dry finish.

Golden orange with a fairly robust white head. Reasonably clear. Citrus on the front of the nose, but more prominently pine, resinous. Decently bitter but backed by a pleasant malty full sweetness. Medium body, some oil. Not much carbonation but a reasonable amount of acidity. Pretty solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It was hoppy with a bit of citrus and it had a large white head. A little spicy, lacked any palate.

Solid, solid IPA. I had Resin before this one so I had to try this. Got my hand on a can at a restaurant and loved it from the pour. Lots of soft tropical fruits. Mango, papaya. Some banana. Lots of pine. Taste is unreal. Tons of resinous hop madness, tropical fruit, banana, just an epic beer. So fresh and delicious I could drink this until I couldn’t stand anymore.

Can at The Granite City (JDW), Aberdeen. Pours cloudy golden with a small creamy off-white head. Aroma of fruity hops, orange and citrus.Taste is moderate bitter, with some residual sugars and caramel, crisp and nice IPA, but a tad on the sweet side. Creamy mouthfeel, high carbonated.

16oz can poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy dark orange with a half finger of white head. Aroma of citrus and pine resin. Taste is light bitter, follows aroma. Light bodied with a thin texture, lively carbonation and a long, lasting finish. Pretty good.
