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.

Suttree (6235) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Cloudy orange, white head. Smells like toast and orange marmalade. Taste is pine and citrus, with some toasty malt notes. Clean and crisp. Dry, woody finish.

douglas88 (8758) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Can thanks to some wizardry or the power of beer hauling. Pours a clear dark copper color with a medium white head. A big biscuit and citrus nose. Oranges and light grassy flavors dominate, light noticeable bitterness, biscuit. Very smooth and nice, light caramel.

TheHopster (1100) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2013
(16oz can). Pours a bright orange-amber complexion with thick white fluffy head. Aroma is faint hop. Easy to drink and mellow. Flavors of sweet grapefruit & hop. Well hopped without overdoing it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

larsga (7407) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2013
Big offwhite lasting head. Amber body with lots of little particles. Resiny fruity aroma with papery notes. Dry-sweet papery pineapple taste with peppery spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Hot, sharp mouthfeel. Dryish earthy spicy pineapple aftertaste with peppery notes. Not really very nice. Whats going on with this beer? (0.568l can at Bishops Arms, Vstra Hamngatan, Gteborg, Sweden.)

Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Can to glass. Pours a clear deep copper light amber color with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is full of piney and citrusy hops. Flavor is a subtle citrusy-piney hop bitterness that lasts long into the finish. Almost a bit tart. Body is lighter and oily in texture. Good amount of carbonation, almost too much. Interesting and tasty IPA.

berniecarbo (148) - Holliston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 19, 2013
16 oz can. Pours a hazy golden amber with thick off white foamy head. Hints of orange, medium body, nice hop kick, not over powering, really good IPA.

ads135 (4342) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 16, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2016 This is a better than average IPA. Strong grass and citrus flavors and plenty of bitterness. Too bitter to be trulysessionable and slightly astringent.

rollinsr (622) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUN 15, 2013
Pours a light amber with a finger of tan head. Aroma is heavy bitter pine citrus with some floral stickiness to it. Flavor has a lot more sweet caramel malt flavor. Some sips I get more bitter character and some less but the rich malt character is still there. Good IPA.
