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.

Nice IPA. Ein leichte Funkynote gepaart mit angegraster USmaltFruityness bringen den Sud sicher ins Hophead Wonderland. Hui. Oily, harzhoppy und unwiderstehlich earthy, aber auf die lehmige Art 😉. Säuerlich zitronig und abgekupfert ist es auch. Mauz 😀. CAN from the Netherlands. DE MOLEN machst möglich. 3€.

BeardedAvenger (787) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2017
Can at Tully Shilling, Farnborough. Hoppy. Bright amber. Bright white head quickly shrinks away. Bitter. Not really more than medium but hoppy. Some caramel into the finish. However served extremely cold straight out of the fridge, which could be having an effect. Light bodied. Really slick around the back of the teeth. Light carbonation. Relatively abrupt finish. Decent enough but would try again and warmer.
