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.

Hazy gold. Aroma is sweet, citrusy, pine, and even a little floral. Flavor is definitely an IPA - clean bitter with some pine, grapefruit, and caramel. Excellent.

Can (May 11, 2017 canning, just called Bengali nowadays, I guess there’s no longer a tiger in the tank). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin), with light notes of butter and plastic. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Pretty surprising that an American brewery would use a time-tested old world hop for an IPA, even if at American quantities. It still just ends up smelling mostly grapefruity and a bit resiny in their hands, sadly, but it’s at least milder/softer here than most. Some off notes spoil it further, but overall it’s a pretty quiet, simple aroma. It works better in the mouth, where the bitterness is striking but clean, and balanced well with just enough residual sugars. Watery but pretty good for quaffing. Clean up the nose and this could be solid.

Spontaneum (5) - Belfast, IRELAND - MAY 29, 2017 does not count
A fine beer if ever there was one. Piney Resinous Grapefruity classic IPA. Slaps you with a quite aggressive bitterness, but smooths out after a few sips. Bright orange in hue, but clear an crisp. I would always be happy to drink it all day long. Except it will win in the end.

355ml can [as Bengali, 6.5%, 69 IBU). Slightly cloudy, golden to amber colour with average, fluffy, moderately lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Piney, resinous and slightly citrusy, hoppy aroma, notes of pineapple and orange, sweaty resin notes. Taste is slightly sweet caramel and pale malty, moderate bitter hoppiness, some pine, resin, citrus, orange zest, a touch of mango; slightly mineral and chalky, bitter finish.

Shag (3000) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 14, 2017
A dark orange color with a white head. Aroma is not very strong with some orange peel, lemon, and pine. The flavor is slightly bitter with a malt profile in there. There are some oranges, lemons, and caramel present. This is certainly no hop bomb if that’s what you are looking for. Overall pretty tasty and well balanced.
