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.

I love how a lot of US brewers are starting to make IPAs with more citrus and less bitterness - Bengali Tiger is probably the best of this breed. Cloudy, copper colored, with a tall, luxurious head. Hops are somewhat resiny with notes of orange, grapefruit, lemon, kiwi. Very well-balanced. The malt profile has some toast and just a bit of caramel.

ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 1, 2013
12oz can. Poured a medium copper color with a two finger pillowy white head that had good retention and lacing. The aroma has a strong upfront resiny citrus hop and a distinct white pepper aroma. The taste consisted of citrus and peppery hops and a solid doughy grain bill. The mouthfeel was full and creamy with moderate carbonation.

16oz can to pint glass. Floral aroma. appearance is a hazy orange with some sediment. Pretty drinkable IPA, floral hoppiness and light citrus, slightly bitter.

(can) orange-gold with white head. Bready malt aroma with a little hops. Flavor is well balanced between bready malt and earthy hops.

Hm. The color is very intriguing. Light burnt orangey hue, which slightly falsely portrays a rich, intense flavor. I wish this ipa had a little more hop presence both on the nose and the palate. However, its a very drinkable beer, and certainly nice to look at. Could potentialy make for a decent impromptu session beer (with the knowledge, of course, that it weighs in a little higher then most sessions at 6.4%)

12 oz. can. Pours a hazy orange color amber color with a large yellowish beige head. The aroma and flavor have toasted bread, mild citrus, earthy, slight resiny hops. Nothing big, moderate bitterness to the finish.

Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2013
A primarily citrus and pine aroma. Pours a hazy tiger orange with a mostly lasting foamy off-white head and spotty lacing. The taste is mildly bitter. ( I was pleasantly surprised. I was expecting a strong bitter on slaught.) Malt, bread and grain appear first, followed by pine bitterness, with hints of grapefruit and florals. Medium body with crisp carbonation. Overall, I found this to be a nicely balanced IPA - not too bitter and not too malty. Enjoyable.

shroud0fdoom (150) - Maryland, USA - SEP 6, 2013
*On Tap Maxs* Look: Deep brass shade of orange body, 1 finger white head, lively carbonation. Smell: Grapefruit citrus, spice, cereal grains, faint earth. Taste: Citrus upfront, earth, nice malt sweetness, faint funk, semi dry bitter finishes with more grapefruit. Overall: Tiger stripes is right! That was all that was left in my pint glass when I finished. This is very drinkable and refreshing. Two qualities I love in my any kind of Pale Ale. I mean it doesnt have a "Wow" factor but it is so good fresh. This brew is worthy.

Good head on this beer has a strong presence of summit hops. The beer is a little cloudy but really helps with the head retention.
