A: Light amber, no haze, slightly pinkish tone while pouring (before bubbles came out)
S: Hops. Grassy, planty, resinous, slightly soapy. Light malt present
T: Incredible burst of piney, resinous hop right up front. Soon, citric, floral hop notes blend in, followed by the balance of honey & shortbread cookie malt.
A: Smooth, with slight bready malt taste nearly completely smothered by the lingering hop bitterness. Floral & piney flavors linger.
Overall: A no-nonsense IPA, with plenty of big, bold hop presence throughout. While not extremely complex, several different hop flavors combine with a subdued, but essential balancing light malt for a well-crafted, completely enjoyable beer. The 7.3% ABV is detectable, but the alcohol serves more as a flavor-blender than a flavor element unto itself.

Pours a reddish copper color with a nice 2 finger head that takes it time leaving in a 20oz pub glass leaving really great lacing down the glass.
Smell is pretty outstanding. I really get the earthy hops with malts in the background.
Taste is great as well. Way more malt than I was expecting from a beer called hopsecutioner. The malts tell the story for me. Has a taste of caramel to them and the hops kinda play second fiddle. I definitely get the earthy hops but not as much as I expected.
Mouthfeel is pretty spot on. Really liked the way it has a nice presence throughout the taste.
Overall, a really great beer. I really like this and plan to make it more of a go to.
