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.

erickok (5629) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 5, 2014
Hazy orange body, tapped with small head. Citric, lemony hops, melon even. Smooth bitterness yet very present. Great mouth feel. Could easily keep in drinking this. Nice! (On tap at Bangers Sausage and Beer Garden)

craftbeersweden (610) - SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2014
Beatiful orange, clear, beer with a white head. Nose: Orange, grapefruit, oily hops, resin and citrus. Taste: Pine, grapefruit, spicy malt and bitter notes. Creamy taste and light carbonation. Great!

asheft (3026) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2013
[Can] Spicy and tropical hops aroma along with some strawberry and apricot. Murky orange-brown under a lacy, white flannel blanket. As with the other Sixpoint offerings, I found this balanced toward bitterness, with a malt backbone that is not quite enough to even things off. Packed with hops flavour, though, and with a touch of DMS. Medium carbonation, medium body, slight lingering finish.

Pours cloudy orange with foamy head. Strong citrus hop aroma. Smooth medium carbonated body. Caramel citrus taste. Bitter throughout.

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Best by: 29SEP11 A: Toasted apricot ale with a single finger of light maple foam which falls slowly to a sheet of the same. Rings of lace above this ale of limited clarity. S: Lots of soily, oily hops, not particularly intriguing. Some hints of grapefruit. The hop profile seems pretty similar to Righteous Ale (their Rye). T: Grassy and grainy. The malts are more prominent than I would prefer in a good IPA. This is improperly balanced for an American IPA, reminds me more of an English IPA. M: Medium bodied with moderate carb. Nice dry finish. O: Nothing special here. Serving type: can 07-28-2011

Aroma is light. Great pour with good head. Not overwhelming hops, slightly bitter with strong citrus taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ed5388 (3255) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 28, 2013
16oz can. Pours a slightly hazy burnt orange color with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of old grapefruit skins, malty caramel, and piney hops. Taste is much the same. Heavy on the caramel malts, grapefruit pulp, citrus zest, and pine.

Mep3222 (1352) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - NOV 12, 2013
A little watery on the palate and carbonation died fast. Malty bread like aroma. Not much hops in the aroma. Flavor is piney resinous hops with some malt. Had resin yesterday, so it doesn't seem super piney relative to that, but definitely piney and resinous. Descent but not a top ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Malty aroma with distinct orange blossom and citrus as well. Cloudy orange-ish with big foamy white head. Big malty backbone, with sweet citrus notes that push through.

snoworsummer (5170) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Draft. Pours cloudy copper gold with a thin fizzy white head and decent lacing. Dry feel with a lingering aftertaste. Tastes strongly of pine, some grapefruit, some banana and bubblegum, also floral. Low/medium body and carbonation. Smells musky and like vegetables.
