on-tap at Flying Saucer in Raleigh
Appearance is a clear amber with next to no head, more of a skim really. Some lacing in the beginning. Smell is lots of hops, as to be expected, that are mostly citrusy: a tendency towards grapefruit. Taste is hoppy with the grapefruit tones dominant and a hint of pineapple. The surprise in the taste is that there is a actually a ton of malt (caramel?) presence in this beer, maybe too much? Mouthfeel is somewhat heavy for the style with medium-low carbonation and lots of hop oils.
This is quite similar to Bell's Two Hearted in profile, but not as good. A good IPA but not a great one, the malt sorta weirded me out.

A delicious headache in a glass. A simple go to beer, if its in the cooler and only other choice is a Sweetwater or bud light... You'd better believe you go for the hopsecutioner. But overall its easy to Drink and tastes good.... nothing that will make you say wow or want to write home about, but easy and good.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, chill-hazed, copper coloring with a filmy, clingy, white head. Nose of resinous hops and tart grapefruit forward, with a tangy caramel backbone, and piney highlights. Great nose! Flavors are grapefruit and pineapple forward, with a tangy caramel and roasted backbone, peppery herbal notes, and piney resinous tones throughout. Smooth and balanced, on a light, smooth body. The aftertaste is tropical fruit, with a subtle bitter resin character. Smooth, resinous, slightly dry finish. Very tasty and very drinkable.
