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.

In a can. Toastier aroma than you’d expect in an IPA. Flavor is of bitterness backed by chewy, roasty toast. Not a lot of robust hops flavor, malts dominate.

355ml Can from Crystal Palace (Wetherspoons), Glasgow (£2.49):
Pine hops and strong tropical fruit notes with a lot of citrus and some clean, sweet malts that hints at some caramel. Touches of grapefruit with pine notes seeming to dominate. Lighter on the nose than I was expecting but it is a nice one.
This one looks perfect; a bright amber to orange colour with a thumb-sized, foamy white head that holds great & leaves nice lacing too.
Pine hops and some grapefruit come through from the nose along with some citrus as well. Good lemon flavours and light malts as well to mix it up a little. Some orange towards the end as well.
Very bitter offering with a medium body and smooth body. Carbonation was quite lively and there was a dry and tangy feel to it with a lingering bitter aftertaste.

Hoppy and enjoyable with plenty of pine notes and flavours good bitterness too. You could tell the beer was a strong one but it still went down fairly easy, so much so that I went back to the bar for a second can. I can’t wait to try more from Sixpoint now.

Bue à la pression. Couleur ambrée orangée trouble. Arômes de fruits (orange) au nez. En bouche, corpulente et équilibrée à souhait. Finale sur l’amertume. Plutôt cool !

sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2014
Poured a hazy orange/amber with a satisfyingly dense head. Aroma of sweet citrus and bitter hops. Medium body, flavour is medium sweet with an increasing residual bitterness. Nothing too complicated, but very well done.

NikkTwist (3306) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2015 Draft at Farmers Cabinet. March 2014. Then again in June 2015 at Moriartys. Large frothy head over a hazy orange amber pour. Gooey wet lace. Crisp bright hop notes balanced with a thick amount of medium caramel malts. Bitter honeycomb. Sticky nettles. Orange marmalade. Oak and pine resins. Herbal lemons. Watermelon rind. Pineapple cores. Buttered croissants. Shortbread. Honey tangerines. Feels a bit too heavy at times, but nicely rich and complex.

zimbo (970) - SCOTLAND - MAR 28, 2014
Nice big creamy fluffy head. Cloudy amber golden colour. Some Spiky fern happiness on the nose. Linear, clean and somewhat hoppy & nicely bitter in the middle and end.

edsspoon (905) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2014
Pours hazy reddy-orange colour with a thick off-white head. Good lacing and head remains throughout even though I drank it over the course of about an hour. Aroma is lots of hops, citrus and pine. Taste is citrussy, bitter and hoppy, followed by sweetness and strawberry and then a really bitter finish. Super.
