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.

Towey1989 (21) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Can from The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) pours a clear pale amber with a thick creamy head. Aroma of pine and grapefruit. Taste of citrus and zesty grapefruit bitterness with a hint of caramel. Good carbonation and a nice dry hop finish.

Vignale (2244) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2015
Burk från craftbeer/Galatea. På flera sätt en ganska stiltypisk västkust-IPA med massor av grape och fin karamellig maltkropp utan att bli särskilt söt. Men bryggeriet menar att den är är ett försök till tolkning av en typisk brittisk IPA och den är torrhumlad med EKG-humle. Hur som helst välgjord med rena smaker som har djup, fyllighet och balans. Riktigt god.

BOSSbrewer (2093) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 16, 2015
On tap at 28 Springs. Pours a clear golden yellow with a thick creamy white head. Aroma is pine and slight citrus. Flavor follows but is very subdued. Finishes clean. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JDW, can. Light fruitiness, not so bitter. Pineapple. Smells a bit skunky. Alright though. Light yoghurt.

hopwine (431) - Bend, Oregon, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Beautiful orange-golden pour with perfect clarity, white head, great lacing. Nose is earthy, herbaceous, and lightly citric. Flavor is the same on the hops side with some biscuit and honey sweetness supporting. Very equal balance between sweetness and bitterness, finish is initially mildly bitter and then very dry and clean. Super approachable, focused, and unique.

Oh East Coast IPAs. It has been a while. That is a shame. So wonderful. Strong and oily with plenty of heavy tropical fruit all over it. Such a gorgeous fat texture too. I just think this is a lovely beer.

smaynard6000 (683) - Apopka, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2014
12oz can. Pours a sparkling amber color with creamy off-white head. Predominantly citrusy hoppy notes, touch of pine in there as well. Mellow grapefruit hoppy flavor, quite easy on the palate. Smooth finish. Very tasty and quaffable.

Hazy golden with a thin foamy white head. Big tangerine and grapefruit nose with pleasant pine resin and a bit of caramel. Nice flavorful body with a little caramel with some pine resin and a wee touch of orange/grapefruit rind. A little faint of heart but flavorful.
