Nice dark gold pour with a nice lace. Great Hop flavor . Great West Coast IPA one of my favorites. Bought 18 cans today at The Brown Jug in Oreville Washington

This is one of my favorite IPAs of all time. Huge hop flavor and aroma with restrained bitterness. Fantastic.

Nice golden hue. 70 IBU. thin, watery entry. Latent hoppy taste comes through with equally latent carbonation. Not a heavy mouthfeel as expected with other west coast IPAs. Undetectable presence of malt. very slight grapefruity nose.

A. Pours a nice orange-gold with over a finger of white sticky head. That leaves some nice lace.

S. Big grapefruit and orange rind, a little mango and light grainy malt. Simple, west coast, and very nice.

T. Big citrus fruit and rind, some cedar and grainy light malt. Maybe a touch of tropical fruits and sweet candied citrus rind (if that's even a thing, may have just made that shit up).

M. Medium body, soft below medium carbonation.

O. Very nice and all west coast baby. Trust a yakima brewery to take advantage of the local dankness! :)

I live in IPA saturated Portland, OR. Topcutter is not available here, although it's pretty easy to find about an hour away in Washington. I go out of my way to find Topcutter, even in this crowded IPA market, because it's THAT good.

I'm a big fan of these "modern" IPAs - not overly bitter, very overly aromatic, etc. Topcutter is a prime example of this style. It's hard to mess up a beer with a Simcoe®, Citra®, Ahtanum™, and Mosaic™ hop bill, but it's been done. This beer uses those hops perfectly. So. Good.

Pretty solid with plenty of dry bittering hops, though having just had the Field 41 pale previous, this beer doesn't stack up..either as an IPA or in comparison to the latter. That shit even make sense?
