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; its the mark of the Tiger.

pkbites (889) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Pour is cloudy yellowish/orange. Nice creamy off white head that laces the glass. Head floats on top like a scoop of French vanilla ice cream. Light floral and pine aroma as well as flavor. Aftertaste is very hoppy bitter. The bitterness is a bit over the top yet flat. Like a block of wood on the tongue.

Palme (4396) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2017
On tap @ Beer Temple. This is a cloudy kinda mild amber colored one. Well, its not all that cloudy but it has a deep blur. A big lasting and quite lacing off-white head safely placed on the top. Smells nice with a good amount of birchey pine. A good amount of sweet malty goodness also here. Perhaps not the most complex aroma, but it smells nice. Piney and birchy in the taste also. At first quite mouthdrying. It has a mild oily texture in the mouth and its just above average on the carbonation. Red berries, some pine cones. It bears some resemblance of a mild double IPA I think. Really bitter aftertaste. Works well. 24.09.2015

Can at Spoons in Eastbourne (bargain at 1.99). A huge hop hit followed by a powerful bitterness at the back of the tongue,. A high %gives the beer a belgian complexion. Enjoyable.

M_Sack (652) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2017
Can - labelled as the alias beer Bengali, perhaps the Australian labelled version? Hazy, yet bright gold with a small frothy white head that laces well. Caramel and bread malts dominate the aroma, with hints of earthy hops and grapefruit pith. Bitter front palate showing off the earthy hops, leading to an enormous malt bill, full of luscious caramel and bread. Finishes with a moderate grapefruit bitterness. Really great IPA made by Yanks in my preferred English style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
