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.

I love how a lot of US brewers are starting to make IPAs with more citrus and less bitterness - Bengali Tiger is probably the best of this breed. Cloudy, copper colored, with a tall, luxurious head. Hops are somewhat resiny with notes of orange, grapefruit, lemon, kiwi. Very well-balanced. The malt profile has some toast and just a bit of caramel.

commonmac (1111) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 6, 2017
On tap at Augustine in St. Paul with blonderedhead. Served in a pint glass. No real head to be found. Clear golden orange. Aroma is muted but citrus and pine resin. Taste is mostly standard IPA fare with resin and floral notes abound. Definite bitterness. Slight cloying tendency. Lingering bitterness but thin mouthfeel in general. Honestly not a very good effort. There are better balanced options out there. This tiger needs its bitterness tamed to be more drinkable.
