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.

Dark orange color with medium white head and nice lacing. Aroma is citrusy with a bit of earthy yeastiness. Flavor is a lot lighter than the aroma suggested, with quick sharp grapefruit bitterness and a clean dry finish with some toasty malts. Good overall

This IPA has become one of my personal favorites. With the perfect amount of hop/malt ratio. It has a bite without being overwhelming. Don't let the can throw you off. It still is just as enjoyable then in a bottle.(One of the few.)Sixpoint Bengali Tiger bites you in the right place, every time.

Canned (6.6%) from K&B. Fruity hops up front that quickly turns into a more earthy type of flavor. Tastes like a very highly hopped ESB. Pretty tasty. Different take on what I'm used to.

Was für eine Carbo, ein Perlenfeuerwerk, welches eine ordentliche Schaumhaube auf das Bernsteingold zaubert. In der Nase dann hopfig, fruchtig. Im Trunk dann leichte Frucht, deutlich Malz dabei, kernig, mittig bitter, hinten trocken. Schöne Komposition.

12 oz can poured, listed as Sixpoint Bengali, and at 6.6%, 66 IBU. Fitting beer to be enjoying as a Bengals fan watching the game. Actually had this beer in the past, in the same setting, and missed on the rating, likely out of frustration from the game. A golden orange pour that nearly matches the color on the can. Rocky foam head that sticks around. Rich malt all throughout. Very malt forward IPA. Moderate hop bitter that is there, but fades before the sweeter caramel malt does. A ton of flavor going on. Pretty good.

Cimbasso (1003) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2017
Sampled from a can from Kihoskh. Pours an amber colour with a white head. Aromas of malted barley. The taste is quite mellow with nutty notes and flavours of brown bread along with tropical fruits, espcecially pineapple and mango. Some quite bright notes of earthy hops, giving a refreshing bitterness and the taste of dry autumn leaves. A nice, refreshing IPA. Quite drinkable.

0,355 boks fra Kihoskh,, delt med Steven i lejligheden okt-17: let uklar oransjegylden med eksemplarisk skum som varer til siste dråpe. På alle måter en frisk og lettdrikkelig ipa med rikelige mengder tropiske frukter, furunål og saftige, jordaktige toner som avslutter med en delikat bitterhet. Den viser frem de beste egenskapene til EKG. En fin avslutning på Stevens opphold her.

Pours a slightly hazy dark yellowly orange. Aroma is citrus tropical, fairly hoppy. Delicious citrus, tropical, melon and orange peel start with a fairly bitter caramel finish. A really great beer. What's better is that you can get a can of this and a burger, fries and onion rings in spoons for a fiver! Result! Doesn't taste it's abv!

Can. I like it, don't love it. Touching on bitter, but doesn't follow through...I enjoy the front end, but it trails off into....disappointing finish.
