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.

Robe blonde orangée, limpide, mousse blanche moyenne, tenant en fin filet alimenté par de nombreuses petites bulles. Nez d’agrumes (pamplemousse et orange confite) et d’herbes fraiches, légère note florale, caramel, miel. Attaque très amère sur le pamplemousse, puis on retrouve doucement son palais pour des notes d’oranges, de caramel doux et d’herbe en finale. Amertume un peu violente, corps légèrement liquoreux (cf les larmes sur le verre), un peu de sucre, légère astringence, très bonne longueur. Une très belle IPA, incontestablement nord américaine !

Can. Hazy orange amber with a thick deep cream top. It smells of marmalade, orange and rich sugary fruits. Lots of fruits in the mouth. More orange. Some peach. Pineapple. Grapefruit. It gets more flavoursome as it warms up. Absolutely wonderful IPA.
