Cutter Imperial IPACutter Imperial IPA
Notes: Formerly Calcutta Cutter

In a sea of IPAs, Cutter stands tall. This imperial IPA sails with citrus and tropical fruit aromas and a balanced hoppy finish. Big, bold, and beautiful.

It says I have to justify my rating with a review that is mysteriously marked as optional. That's why I'm typing something in this box. Congratulations.

4 oz. tasting glass at the brewery.

Appearance: Hazy straw with a thin white head. Ringed lacing.

Aroma: Lots of citrus, pine, and hops. Grapefruit, orange, lemon all there.

Taste: Follows the nose, with a somewhat oily quality to it. Tasty and full flavored.

Mouthful: Pretty sturdy. Alcohol burn is minimal considering high-ish ABV.

Overall: Hits all the right notes for a biggish DIPA. Worth seeking.

L - Slightly hazy dark, rusty orange with a finger of white head.

S - Slight blood orange, big sweet malts

T - Sweet malts dominate, but some pine and tree sap are here too. Lots of hop oils and resins. Nice pop of grassy bitterness on the finish helps combat the sweeter notes.

F - Full for a big DIPA. Not syrupy and finishes with lingering hops. No alcohol taste.

O - Not a bad offering. Has the trademark pine from the East Coast, but maybe too much sweet malt flavor.

12 oz. Bottle poured into a Solemn Oath snifter.

A - Cloudy, amber in appearance. Head settled into a nice "simmer" of froth.

S - Hops and more hops. Some lemon, black pepper and dankness of hops.

T - Citrus, black pepper, a little hint of malt to balance, little bit of alcohol in the finish.

M - Nice body and carbonation.

O - Enjoyed this immensely.
