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.

msante79 (2225) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Pint can from Croxleys. Pours lightly hazed amber with white head. Aromas of sweet malts, some pine, orange, and pungent hops. Flavors of orange, pine, sweet caramel malts, and moderate amount of hop bitterness. Hops and malt are lacking balance and ends kind of messy. Not bad, but not great either.

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.

Shag (2978) - 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 thats what you are looking for. Overall pretty tasty and well balanced.
