4.05/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12-oz. bottle into my Terrapin pint glass.

Appearance: Orange-copper color with a one-finger white head. Good lacing, but not much retention.

Smell: Strong floral hops with a note of sweet malts. I'd say this is the beer's strongest point.

Taste: Bitter hops up front, but they're not VERY bitter - just enough. There's a little bit of malt presence, but the aftertaste is a bit lacking.

Mouthfeel: Crisp with a middling-light body, but again, the aftertaste is a little disappointing. It's kind of watery.

Drinkability: This is easy to drink and enjoy; I like it. It's not quite what I thought it would be: with a name like 'Hopsecutioner', I expected this to be a lot bolder. But overlooking that, it's extremely enjoyable and well worth getting.

4.61/5  rDev +20.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.
