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.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 16oz can poured into glass. Aroma is pungent with pine, resin, and floral/slight citrus hop. Nice transfer from caramel malt sweet to a quickly developed bitterness bite. Smooth somewhat dry finish with an orange peel lingering taste. Long lasting off white head.

Pours a nice honey color with a small white / light tan cap. Smells like pineapple. Hard flavor. Not very sweet. Hoppy, slight pineapple, and a little herbal. Nice beer. Keeping my eyes open for more from six point. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - APR 21, 2013
Pours orange amber with a little haze. A tall head of soft creamy foam that fell slowly to some crags and splotchy lace that really does settle into rings around the glass just like the stripes of a tiger. Just peachy to look at. Nose is finding me and its bountiful and floral. Plenty of pine, resin, grapefruit, tangerine and good bread from a rich malt spine. Gotta admit that this is one of the best noses on an IPA. Malt opens up as it warms with caramel and some apricot from the hops. I happen to love malt and for an IPA this one starts out with a big taste of biscuit , the hops are light and bitter over top of that. Some citrus rind and a little sour bite from the grapefruit, then pine, a little nutty flavor and some delicate hop oil takes you into a dry finish. Aftertaste is sweet with perfumey hops, malt, the apricot, honey and bread. Clean and crisp with a lasting bitter that never outdoes the underlying sweetness. Engaging and spirited.
