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.

Having Bengali Tiger at The Growler in NYC was a totally delightful way to be introduced to Sixpoint. Copper gold coloring with some haze. Balanced aroma with bright, citrusy hops and toasted malts. I feel the flavors would delight all but those who are strictly hop-averse. Marmalade, orange cream, and honey. Theres a wet, crisp hop note but the bitterness is takes a back seat to juicy, candy-like notes. Oily and moderately viscous feel. Excellent stuff.

On draft at Tap 25. It pours a clear orange color with an off white head. The aroma is flowery with light citrus and hints of peach. The flavor is pleasant enough with white peach and flowers. Theres some substantial bready malts in here too. Full bodied with strong floral bitterness. Ok.

Rascainfierno (21) - MADRID, SPAIN - OCT 5, 2016
Espuma cremosa, bastante persistente y adherente. Color dorado ambarino profundo y con ligera turbidez. Aromas ctricos, a pomelo, y maltosos como a bizcocho. En boca el cuerpo es apreciable, la carbonatacin media, con un profundo sabor a naranaja amarga y resina de ciprs. El amargor, aunque es fuerte y punzante, est muy bien integrado con los sabores. El retrogusto es de un amargor ms potente que el que se percibe cuando entra. Estupenda IPA, muy compleja por la combinacin se sabores malosos y lupulosos Una de mis favoritas.

Gurthnar (5350) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 28, 2016
Can at a tasting. Solid sweetish malty base, burnt sugar, very light alcohol. Moderate to high bitterness and hops aromatics, fruity, orange, slightly earthy and flowery. Overall hops centered but with big initial sweetness which eventually steps back. Very good.
