Poured from a bottle into a Chimay goblet.
A- pours a nice looking amber with...no head whatsoever. Now THATS a huge disappointment. It either had no head at all, or vanished way too quick. Theres about a quarter of head in the middle of the glass...and no lacing. Yuck yuck yuck. Body looks real nice though
S- getting a lot of grapefruit and pine. Pretty much standard for an IPA, with a good bit more of the fruitiness that I'm used to. Big improvement on the look.
T- hops are very sweet and fruity to start, and finish nice and piney. Aside from the grapefruit, I can't really pinpoint much of the fruit...citrus. Orange maybe? Not sure. Tastes damn good though.
M- its got that nice thickness you'd like from an IPA. Not too syrupy at all. Very nice.
D- pretty drinkable. Not overwhelming. The alcohol sneaks up on you though..watch it

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.
