COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

12 oz. can from poisoneddwarf - thanks again! Pours a clear gold with two fingers of frothy white head that takes a long time to settle, leaving sloppy lace all the way, and never really settling completely. Uneven frothy, rocky head atop the liquid. Notes of grass, straw, pale and bready malts, light and bright florals, tea, soap, and citrus zest. Light-bodied, with a smooth, clean, lightly bitter mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Really easy drinker but doesnt pop to the same degree as other fresh NW IPAs.

This IPA has been in my fridge a lot lately, so I guess its kind of like my go-to / daily drinker. Its a bold IPA, but its easy to quaff. Grassy, green, zingy, and leafy, it offers lots of fresh hop flavors and a snappy -- but not harsh -- bitterness.

Malty and citrus flavor. Average in my opinion. 12oz can in Dubuque. Golden with white head.

Bedroom Beer!
Pours very pale, lightly hazy, & has a small but well retained head that leaves a good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is big & fruit forward with a light bit of sweetness & pine. Bright & appetizing.

The flavor is bright, fairly bitter & mildly sweet with lots of fruit forward hoppiness.
Pretty dange good

Super balanced, juicy flavor - grapefruit (citrus), pine, a little grass and floral. Nice smotth taste, with malts in background. Dry finish. Excellent beer.

can at Etays place in Highland Park, CA 24.4.16. Thanks Etay! Clear amber with a white head. Fresh grapefruit aroma.. Bitter, dry and a little bit of dry onion taste. Medium body, fizzy, green with a little oniony finish with some floral undertones.

Thanks to VanJammer for this. Pours clear golden with a small white top. Aroma is orange and citrus hops. Nice a flavourful. Taste is moderate to low bitterness but high on the juicy orange and citrus hop flavours. Nice biscuit malts that balance it well.

jgb9348 (6046) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2016
Clear golden coloured body with a large, two centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of grass, fresh picked citrus hops with some tropical fruits and pine, and a good dose of perfume and strong herbal scents. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive fresh hops with a big presence of citrus and tropical fruits, some mellow malt and a light grassy finish, but finishing without bitterness. Aftertaste shows the hops without any bitterness at all - very fresh and clean flavoured with a refreshing finish. Overall, a very nice IPA with a good robust hop profile but without any bitterness - all laid out without super complexities, but it works for this one and the style. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Pear Delicatessen in Seattle, Washington [State] on 18-February-2016 for US$2,25 sampled at home in [the real] Washington on 25-May-2016.

Can poured into pilsner glass. Pours clear golden with abundant white head. Smells strongly of pine, citrus, hops. Plenty of lemon and grapefruit in the flavor. Just the right bitterness. A little above average overall but really nothing to write home about.
