Hopsecutioner pours hazy straw into the tulip with a foaming inch of head that disappears with some oily residue in its wake. The hoppy aroma of the beer is really its strongest point: rich astringent grassy-to-citrus nose with a touch of rich malt that smells balanced.
Taste is medicinal bitterness that is somehow a little off from the nose, but not unpleasant. The finish is not very long or complex, but a nicely hopped ale.
Mouthfeel is a bit light for the alcohol content and hop load.
I'm confused by the labels: the Terrapin is almost a Teenage Mutant Ninja, but dressed as executioner. The country-boy Terrapin of the Rye ale: marketing is a little off to me, but what do I know. I'm not from Georgia but just passing through Atlanta. Label reports the beer was brewed at Flying Dog.
