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.

A great IPA by any standards - and when I say "standards," I mean the the expectations of both east and west coast hop heads - this one has the hop kick in the mouth that most folks from the west side expect, but it has the chewy, bready malt backbone that most east coast IPAs seem to offer more of - I had this on draught at the brewery, and I must say that I’ve never seen so many floaties in a draught beer before - I think this contributed a great deal to the excellent, balancing malt character, adding just a touch of fruity esters on top of the bread and caramel flavors - very nice.

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.

Fisler (791) - Bamberg, GERMANY - NOV 3, 2017
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.
