Our flagship IPA is a well-balanced yet aggressive West Coast IPA that showcases Yakima Valley hops at their finest. Late additions of Simcoe®, Citra®, Ahtanum™, and Mosaic® give this beer its complex citrus, fruity, and floral aroma and flavor. Named for a unique piece of farm equipment that removes hop vines from the trellis during the annual hop harvest, Topcutter IPA delivers loads of hoppiness all year long. - See more at: http://www.balebreaker.com/beer/detail.html?varietyid=1#sthash.4gWdeMkF.dpuf

Travlr (17708) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Can courtesy of Prufrockstar, thank you sir! Clear golden color, fluffy white head with good retention and lacing. The aroma hits you as soon as you open the can, with tons of fresh fruit and meadows. Taste is bittersweet stone fruit on a crunchy biscuit background. Delicious.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Draught at Stumbling Monk, Seattle
Hazy golden color with creamy head. Penetrating hop aroma, with an animal accent. Smooth mouthfeel, a bit dry; toffeish malt flavor, strong bitterness, orange peel, hop resins, but also a light chicory touch.
Very fresh and oily hops, pleasant juice, but something in the final still needs to be tuned.

Oakes (13961) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 7, 2015
Amber with a bubbly head. Massive dry hop nose covers up some diacetyl. Some light crystal malts up front. A fair bit of bitterness in the middle, with diacetyl coming in the finish.

bhensonb (12959) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Can from LetsPour.com. Pours light amber with a transient white head. Aroma is a mix of floral/fruit. Maybe citrus. Med + body. Flavor is very "mosaic" with floral/melon/fruit. Arguably some of the harshness is citrus. Harsh? Yes, lots of hop. This is very NW, except it’s not all pine and/or citrus. Definite hop burn. Really good.

mcberko (10568) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
On tap at Seattle Winter Beer Festival 2014, pours a crystal clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of piney hops, along with some biscuity malt. Flavour brings out more of mineral water, piney hops, and dry biscuity malt. Very well-balanced, with a nice dry palate. Nice IPA.

DrSilverworm (9102) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2014
12oz can, thanks to umich03jm! Mostly hazy orange golden amber color. Good thin off-white head, with good retention. Leaves good, thicker sheets of lace. Fantastic pine and grapefruit citrus up front. Some sweet caramel malt. Medium body. Super smooth, kind of fluffy texture. Lighter, creamy carbonation. Lightly slick. Moderate sweet taste, moderate bitter. A tasty hoppy IPA without being too dry. Good malt sweetness to back up the big hop. I like it a lot, despite it being sweeter (doesn’t skimp on the hop). Looks like a pretty complex bouqet, reading from the ratebeer deScription... No wonder! Super delicious big hop, yet super swiggable. What’s not to love. The bigger sweetness makes this a great pairing with my sandwich. Much better than expected!

Draft - Leafy hops, like your in a garden. Clear gold with a good white head. Mandarin, peach and lots of fruit. Sweet, bitter and well done.
