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.

This IPA blends a perfect balance of malt, hops, and yeast flavor. Everything works well together. Up front is a nice body, then it transitions to delicous hops and the yeast comes in--the yeasty flavor is almost reminiscent of a belgian pale ale. One of my favorites. IMHO way underrated compared to a lot of other IPAs that pale in comparison to this. A perfect beer. If you like IPAs it doesn’t get any better than this. Seek it out.

The perfectly build IPA. England meets the USA in this balanced Hop vs Malt brew. Nice!
