The pours a creamy off white head that quickly dissipates. The beer's color is a brownish orange instead of the usual amber variation. The beer is filtered and clear. The beer's smell is unusually malt forward with very little hops coming through. The malt's smell is caramel malt. The hops that do come out are an orange and floral smell but are covered by the heavy malt presence. The taste is very similar to the smell with a stronger caramel malt presence than the hops. After the beer warmed up a little bit, the hops emerge but barely. The hop taste becomes a grapefruit taste but is still dominated by the malts. The hops are not as strong as one would expect from an IPA. The beer is medium bodied but on the heavier side because of the malts. Also, very little carbonation. The IPA is okay but it is very unusual in that the malts have a much heavier presence than the hops. I probably won't pick this one up again because of the lack of hop flavor. Given the name, I expected more hops.

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.
