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.

Pint can from Croxley’s. 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.

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 (974) - 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.

TrefwoordPunk (1289) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2017
Can 35,5 cl. Pours a lear orang to amber with a medium white creamy head and an aroma of grapefruit, toffee, mandarin, lime, pine, caramel and berries. The taste is medium to heavy sweet with a medium body and a long lasting fruity hoppy finish.

Poured from a "Can" into a glass. This one we've had a couple times before, but somehow hadn't rated yet. It pours a nice orange glow and has a citrus orange peel lemon wheat aroma. The taste is smooth, well-balanced between hops and fruit with just a kiss of the malt. It is super easy drinking and good to wash away the filth of a mediocre post holiday weekend work day. Good for venting about the dismal prospects of the democratic party and blaring some Can in honor of the late great Holger Czukay.

Excalibur123 (521) - Soria, SPAIN - AUG 27, 2017
Presenta amarillo oro transparente con media cabeza de espuma de larga retención; aromas a fruta tropical, ligera resina, cítricos, hierba y flores, en boca entrada media con moderado amargor, que se hace más fuerte en el retrogusto, sin resultar astringente; cuerpo y carbónico medios, notas a caramelo y herbales, largo retrogusto, amargo y seco, equilibrada y compleja, ajustada a estilo.
