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; its the mark of the Tiger.

Canned. Pours clear golden with an average, lacing off-white head. Aroma of citrus, flowerish and spicy notes among some caramel too. Sweet flavor that ends up being more dry and pleasant bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and average carbonation. A nice IPA indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Interesting, if a bit rough around the edges.I like the idea of making an English-style IPA with an American hop-forward brewing process, even though the results arent quite what I look for in an IPA. Still good though, with noticeable pungent Brit-hop funkiness billowing up from an insanely beautiful pour. Taste mixes a floral bitterness with deep lines of citric-laced caramel-and-bread malts. Grows grainy and toasted in the middle, then finishes with a tart grapefruit note and a lingering medicinal fade. Definitely gets better as it warms, bringing out a bready British middle and an underlying hoppy brightness. Fades a little strange, hiding an odd chemical aftertaste that takes its time to come through. Not a dealbreaker--this beers tasty.

MrHangover (4358) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2017
Draft @ Brouwcaf de Molen. Pours a clear golden beer with a medium sized white head on top. Aroma of resinous piney influences, grapefruit notes, fruity touches and quite zesty. Flavor is firm and bitter, lots of bitter grapefruit touches, very citrussy overall, a bit fizzy moutfheel. Has a rich caramel malty body and bittersweet aftertaste. Good stuff.

ciocanelu (2055) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - FEB 23, 2017
Clear golden color with off-white head. Aroma is quite dank, lemony, also vegetal hop notes. Taste is quite balanced at first, hoppy with pine and grapefruit notes but on the finish there is a growing, resiny bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Although the can is quite old, it still is tasty and packs a good punch.

Palme (4541) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2017
On tap @ Beer Temple. This is a cloudy kinda mild amber colored one. Well, its not all that cloudy but it has a deep blur. A big lasting and quite lacing off-white head safely placed on the top. Smells nice with a good amount of birchey pine. A good amount of sweet malty goodness also here. Perhaps not the most complex aroma, but it smells nice. Piney and birchy in the taste also. At first quite mouthdrying. It has a mild oily texture in the mouth and its just above average on the carbonation. Red berries, some pine cones. It bears some resemblance of a mild double IPA I think. Really bitter aftertaste. Works well. 24.09.2015

Can at Spoons in Eastbourne (bargain at 1.99). A huge hop hit followed by a powerful bitterness at the back of the tongue,. A high %gives the beer a belgian complexion. Enjoyable.
