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.

Pretty strong IPA...pours caramel, translucent. Piney up front wiht a bitter crisp end. Malt body tastes like it has some rye to it; its substantial without being over powering. Good dry finish.

tfontana (806) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 22, 2016
Can pour into taster cup at One Stop Market 30th Anniversary. Appearance is hazy, light brown/yellow, no sparkle, thin ring of white head and light lacing. Aroma is mild tropical fruit. Taste is earthy hops, bit of fruit, resinous bitterness. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, lively carbonation and mix of fruity, but earthy bitter dominant finish. Overall, taste is not that pleasing, bitter dominant.

Andrew196 (1539) - Katy, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2016
Draft at Growlers - a great IPA, pours a clear, orange gold, thick foamy eggshell head. Aroma is heavy in pine and citrus. Nice grainy maltiness comes in on the tongue, easy to drink as it pairs with a welcoming low acid citrus.

tap/artefakt. pomarańczowe, niemal całkowicie klarowne, z gęstą, drobnopęcherzykową pianą, utrzymująca się do końca picia, bardzo ładne koronkowanie. aromat kwiatowy, łodygowy, leśny, po ogrzaniu cytrusowy i wyraźnie słodowy. w smaku goryczka łodygowa, czuć chmiel, goryczka zalega na podniebieniu. raczej nie znika szybko ze szklanki

Pours a slightly hazy deep amber color with medium white head. Grapefruity aroma, orange, resin and pine. Taste follows the aroma, citrusy, orangey and grapefruity, also resin, pine and a very balancing bready backbone. Bitter aftertaste.

Orange pour with clinging off white head. Aroma is bready malt and floral hops. Flavor is lightly sweet malt with some perfumy hops. Medium body with good carbonation along with a hard bitter finish. A muddled mess of hops to me?

Having Bengali Tiger at The Growler in NYC was a totally delightful way to be introduced to Sixpoint. Copper gold coloring with some haze. Balanced aroma with bright, citrusy hops and toasted malts. I feel the flavors would delight all but those who are strictly hop-averse. Marmalade, orange cream, and honey. Theres a wet, crisp hop note but the bitterness is takes a back seat to juicy, candy-like notes. Oily and moderately viscous feel. Excellent stuff.
