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?

One of my favorites, I make sure to get a six pack at Trader Joes every time I am out in Spokane. It has a good amount of bitterness and its in a can; Win win.
