Imperial IPA, Double IPA, XIPA, IIPA. Whatever you want to call it. Calcutta Cutter is our homage to hops. Lots of hops. Early hops. Late hops. Very late hops. Dry hops. Then we condition the bottles in a bed of hops. Well, maybe not that last bit, but you get the idea. We let the lupulin shine !

Taster at Bert’s Better Beers. Pours a orange amber color, small head that is gone before you know it. Smell is floral hops, orange, simple syrup, and caramel malts. Taste follow, nice floral hoppiness, solid malt backbone, sweetness, and a surprisingly bitter bite. Going down it is a bit too sticky sweet for me, but a solid effort for Rising Tide.

Pours hazy copper into a tulip. White head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Resin and mango aromas. Sweet molasses and oak front to back turning slightly sour in the lasting malt finish.

Hazy yellow-orange with medium white head. Aroma of citrus hops, spice, malt. Medium full body. Alcohol is not prominent at all. Flavor is very hoppy but not overly bitter with good balance from malt sweetness. Citrus and floral. Very good.

Surprisingly great DIPA on tap in Bar Harbor. Tons of juicy citrus on the nose. The taste is nicely sweet and tropical with grapefruit and grass without being abrasively bitter. Great beer.

JBPortland (778) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 17, 2013
22oz bottle into snifter, pours toasted dark gold/orange, small-medium size head. Nose is bright grapefruit, pine, citrus, lemon, fruit. Mouthfeel is big, crisp, good medium carbonation. Taste is big hoppy blast up front, lemon, grapefruit, citrus, fruity, which quickly drops off into the finish which is strong bitter, piney, hops. The flavor bursts right through on this one and it’s wonderful. This is one of the best beers Rising Tide has made. The fresher the better.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2014 Pours a rich golden color with three plus fingers of thick creamy foam. The nose has some nice candied orange, sweet fresh hay, touch of pine and herbs. Flavors follow the nose with great juicy citrus, round caramel sweetness and great balance and a smooth bitter finish... touch under carbonated creating a bit more mouth coat on the finish but really a pleasure to drink !
