UPDATED: JAN 1, 2018 16 oz can at home from brewery - pours cloudy golden with a fluffy white head - smells of citrus fruit and hop - very well balanced citrus and hop in the mouth - medium hop bitterness in the palette MacNJ (123) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2017
Thanks to my bro-in-law, I have a 16 oz can to sample. Poured into a Beer'd pint glass from Stonnington (keeping the New England connection). Great, earthy pine hops nose. Thick white head with soapy lacing. Unfiltered and golden. Sediment is present, too. Incredibly smooth for a double. Exceptional balance of citrus and earthy pine resine punch. Great brew! Cheers!

Aroma: hop extract, mosaic-hop is detectable, some citrus, grapefruit, some herbal notes, some delicate onion and musty notes (mosaic).
Taste: a bit juicy and then herbal and bitter finish (mix of hops and some alc. imo).
Head is nice, carbonation at quite high level, color is pale yellow, medium hazy. m1eaton () - Walpole, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 16, 2017
Big pine hop bomb that finishes dry. The Topper was my first dive into the world of IPAs. Went with friends years ago to brewery and didn't think much of it. Now as an avid beer drinker I realize the greatness of this beer. It stands up as my favorite every time I drink it.

Doft: ananas, torr, skog, torv som nästan drar åt ett rökigt håll, passionsfrukt, tall.
Smak: gula frukter, besk, torr, söt, tall, tallkåda, välbalanserad! Sötman och beskan balanserar varandra väl! neongolden (2057) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2017
(473ml can from Mikkeller Webshop) Pours a pretty hazy pale orange with an average white head and spotty lace. Aroma is concentrated and a mix of pungent fruit and dankness, notes of preserved peaches, apricots, passionfruit, papaya, berry candy, citrus, some slightly sknuky weed, fresh grass. Flavour is again heavy with hop oil character, concentrated notes of pit fruit, white grapefruit, papaya/melon, floral tropical passionfruit vibe, biscuit malt gives a bit of sweetness, rather dank leafy notes with some catty character, some pine needle, citrus zest and pith, above moderate bitterness but not totally scalding. Medium bodied, a bit oily, fairly soft carbonation, no alcohol. Somewhere between a more bitter west coast and contemporary NE style, and obviously an influence on both. Not head and shoulders above other DIPAs now, but really good all the same. Oakes (19549) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2017
Cloudy, pale. Medium head. Fruity, with a bit of papaya and a bit of grapefruit. On the palate, it’s spicy, has a nice grapefruit, good balance with the pale malt. Touch of alcohol late. It’s good, I'm sure I would have scored it higher back in the day, but when you're this late to the party and you've had so many high quality imitators, it is what it is.

Złociste lekko mętne piwo z solidną białą pianą. Wspaniały świeży i intensywny aromat, dominuje chmiel, potem wychodzą cytrusy i owoce tropikalne. W smaku podobnie, chmielowe z wysoką goryczką. To wszystko przełamane cytrusami. Finisz wytrawny, przyjemny. Piwo treściwe, mega pijalne. Wspaniała double IPA MartyW (436) - DENMARK - DEC 7, 2017
2 week old can. Golden with a soapy white head. Peach, abricot, mango, funky/sweaty sweetness. Goes from sweet fruity, harsh bitter to sweet fruity to something creamy lacto. Heavy bitter, yet doesn't feel that strong/harsh. Good.
