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.

Sixpoint Bengali Tiger IPA is a top-notch IPA. Nice amber pour with a decent head. Real nice floral nose although not complex. Hop character lingers on the palate after the swallow. Bitter bite doesn’t last long. Bengali Tiger is an IPA worthy enough to put on your regular rotation.

Pours a nice amber with thick eggshell head. Citrus, pine, and a hint of floral in the aroma. A little thin in the mouthfeel. Nice malty backbone. Finishes dry. Very refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours golden with a thin egg shell head that leaves INTENSE lacing, really good looking. Aroma is loaded with green and resiny hops, piney but not over the top with a little citrus. Taste is medium bitterness backed by a robust malt backbone. It is never cloying, though. Flavors could be a little more refined, but it is never quite harsh. Overall a good one from Sixpoints, I’d pick that one up if it was more readily available and if they would stick to brewing instead of doing some legal assaults.

can. clear orange with a large, can poured, foamy white head. candy-like sweet, fruity, hop nose. flavor is well balance with fruity and floral hop notes. a large amount of low alpha hops. medium bodied with plenty of malt sweetness and light toasted bread. a low-ish amount of carbonation adds to the drinkability.

BeerandBlues2 (14027) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Can. Pours very lightly hazy copper with a large, foamy and frothy off-white eggshell head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is earthy and spicy rye malt, herbal and spicy hops with citrus notes, and light peach and apricot fruity esters. Flavor is heavy hops and moderate bitterness, dry supporting rye and cracker malt with light fermentation fruity esters, balanced toward hops, and a dry finish with a lightly spicy and citrus pith aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation, light alcohol warmth, no creaminess or astringency.

Can. Pours hazy orange with a medium sized white head. The aroma is mostly grapefruit with some light pine. The taste is lightly bitter, citrus ring, finishes earthy. Meh.

Had this out of the tall boy can. I was surprised by the malty flavor based on a citrus like aroma. Pours with a decent head from a can. I love citrus ipas...I was intrigued by this beer’s overall balanced flavor and clean, crisp finish.

I tasted this beer last summer at Kennebunkport and it has a strong hoppy taste in the best IPA tradition with good lasting finish. A good session ale. Can I buy it in the UK?

I’ve never consumed perfume before but I would imagine it to taste like this beer, which is way over the top too sweet.

Patrickctenchi (6812) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Can: Pours hazy orange-amber with a tall, chunky, off-white head. Sweet orange aroma, florals. Taste is strong orange peel...a nice steady bitter. Some pine and caramel. Very soft and smooth.
