Finally had it... Years of waiting.. Average ipa... WAY WAY WAY overrated ... out of all the different beer genres, ales, lagers, rare Belgians this is number one in the world??? Damn all you fucking hipsters bought into the mystique and rareness of this beer over hyping this guy...had from the can and a glass, would still take an ipa from dogfish, yards, Coronado, Firestone walker, Bells, or a number of other craft beer companies IPAs Any day of the week over this.... Light, floral hops, bite to finish... Sort of lingering .3 stars ...Not the best beer in the world however, I could say for certain not even close to the best IPA I've ever had...

I don't love IPA's but could def drink this one profile - March 16, 2015
Long lasting citrus flavors linger on your tongue from this moderately bitter ale.

Great for an IPA.

I'll be honest, I don't consider this a "hop bomb." To me, its a smooth, drinkable, big boy IPA with perfect balance between hops and malt. I love the hint of peppery finish, or maybe it's just me? The malt is different than most malty IPA's, it's takes a backseat to the hops, but at the same time, doesn't get lost. Great beer.

Close to the best beer ever, but it is a one beer night with this one. But amazing flavor.

Most amazing beer ever. Fun to try to buy. Drink from the can! profile - January 16, 2015
Very well balanced , flavorful IPA. But living on the west coast, I have a lot of great IPAs to choose from. While I appreciated the Topper, I wouldn't crawl nude over broken glass to get it.
