This is the perfect example of a west coast IPA from the hop capital of the world. I’ve never experienced an aroma as fragrant and well maintained from a production brewery. The bitterness hits you right where you want it too. Bravo, Bale Breaker!

12oz can. This is a great looking golden colored IPA. As advertised its a very complex citrusy tasting beer that really does taste like it was just freshly brewed. Highly recommend!

Thanks for the can Julie P! Poured a good head with a great aroma of pineapple, peaches and citrus fruits. The Topcutter has a golden orange hue. Taste is well balanced yet assertive. A sinister IPA with smooth body and satisfying finish. I can’t wait to try the other brews the BBBC makes and hopefully they concoct a Double IPA! Just when you think Wa beer can’t get any better the underdogs from E-Wa cut your top off and show you who’s boss! BOSS!

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2013 On tap at O’Malley’s in Rathdrum, ID. Pours almost clear old gold with a medium off-white head with decent retention; leaves sheeting lace. Aroma is catty, piney, very hoppy. Taste starts out sweet before quickly turning bitter and lingering through a long finish. Bit of an alcohol burn. Super good IPA.

Cloudy in appearance. Golden orange in color. Head is off white. Lacing is spuratic. The aroma seems to have a sweetness to it. The hops smell fresh. This beer has a perfect blend of hops. This is very refreshing. It has a long drawn out finish. Oily texture with medium carbonation. This is my new sessionable beer. Yah.

I had this beer on tap at the washington brewer’s festival. It truly exemplifies everything that an american IPA should be. Anyone can brew a bitter IPA, it’s not challenging at all... This beer is loaded with juicy citrus hop flavor and aroma that will punch you in the face. This was a very clean finishing beer that did not linger in your mouth long.

Poured from can a golden orange with creamy head. Hop forward aroma with grassy, citrusy notes as well. Amazingly balanced hop flavor. Slight malt hints with a great citrusy taste. No lingering bitter after taste. Great refreshing IPA.
