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.

ContemplateBeer (2089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Aroma: (6- Above average) Moderate grapefruit, pine with caramel malts, white sugar- pretty sweet. Appearance: (4- High quality) Translucent copper pour with sticky bone head, good lacing. Flavor: (5- Average) Thought the malts were too dominant here, and sweet overall. Hops express more pine than grapefruit. Palate: (3- Average) Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Really pretty underwhelming and a little unpleasant.

Can (16 oz). Clear dark golden with a huge frothy off-white head and intense lacing. Aroma of English hops, earthy notes, caramel/malt, citrus and pine. Taste is moderately sweet with English hops, earthy notes, caramel, pine, citrus and light bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dusty mouthfeel. I’m not a fan of IPA with English hops and/or malty/caramel IPA. This one use English hops and is malty. Despite this, it’s still a decent beer. Not really refreshing though.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JUL 9, 2013
16oz can served in a 17oz Speiglau Lager glass. A 3 fingered, long lasting, fluffy white head sits atop a brilliant, orange tinted, amber colored beer. Aroma is spicy and slightly floral with hints of light caramel and pomme and citrus fruits. Nutty, light toffee, and biscuit flavors are balanced by a strong spicy and floral character with a touch of low level indistinct fruitiness. The bitterness is present, but never overpowering and it dries the palate after every sip.

Placker (4) - Gainesville, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2013 does not count
It pours a beautiful amber. A very clean white fluffy head. The smell is faint but it is there. It is kind of piney apricot citrusy. Taste kind of orange peel and a pleasant piney flavor. Finishes nicely. This one is not to bitter maybe a little dry even. Very good kind of reminds more of an ESB but with a slightly larger hop punch. Good beer overall worth a drink.

Suttree (6484) - 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 (9572) - 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 (1111) - 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 (7627) - 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. What’s going on with this beer? (0.568l can at Bishop’s Arms, Västra Hamngatan, Göteborg, 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.
