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.

My first Sixpoint variety. Very nice hoppy aroma, citrusy. Medium palate. Refreshing.

ALLOVATE (3056) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2014
Hazy, misted orange with a mess of suds atop. Heavy handed on the pine needles, the nose also shows hints of resinous hop flowers, eucalypt, tree-sap, lemon peel and grapefruit. Aggressively sharp and weedily bitter on the palate. Passionfruit and grapefruit in the finish with a touch of rose water. Malt is gritty, dry and dusty. Mouthfeel is on the leaner side with sprightly carbonation upfront that fades in the swallow. Not much here. Average. (16fl.Oz can, BB 08/04/14, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

BLADT (700) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 25, 2014
From tap. Big citrus nose, with grapefruit. Solid white head. Lots of hops. Somewhat bitter of a finish. Lacks balance.

3.7
dojken (645) - SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2014
Svag doft av lite söt frukt. Smaken balanserad med maltig behaglig smak. Beskan är bra men det är något i beskan som känns artificiell.

3.8
Linnet (1891) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2014
Lots of tropical fruits, citrus, grapefruit and resin on the nose, copper colour, medium white head, lacing. Noticable, but moderate bite for the style, mid-sweet, lots of grapefruit and tropical fruits. Medium body, average carbonation, bitter finish. Enjoyable.

3.6
ansalon (4103) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2014
Pours amber with a tight foam head. Aroma is caramel, honey, tropical fruit, butterscotch, dates. Taste is honey, apple, caramel, resin, rye bread. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.5
Ktwse (5357) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2014
Pours cloudy amber with low white head. Aroma of caramel and toffee, almost butterscotch, not a lot of hop aromas. Taste is balanced sweet and hoppy with lightly resinous finish. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pmuzz (400) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2014
Not sure what the big deal is here. A very bitter and unbalanced beer, may have not tolerated the ship well.

4.4
Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 8, 2014
Deep orange colour with a thin fluffy head. Floral aroma, not too strong. A lot of pine and bitter citrus, grapefruit. Well balanced bitterness, super hoppy drinkable IPA. One of my favourites.

erickok (6037) - 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)
