Pours a copper color with a finger of white head that lasted for awhile and left nice lacing on the glass as it receded. The nose is rather light; there are some hoppy and floral notes, but that is about it. The flavor is light - far too light. The hop profile on the finish is quite light as well.

I am not saying that powerful hop bitterness is the only thing that makes for a quality IPA, but when a brewery is bold enough to call its beer Hopsecutioner, then it should deliver on that promise by producing a profound hop bite. This beer does not even come close to that goal.

A - copper with a orange hue. 1 finger head with little retention. Slight lacing

S - the hops are there, but not as strong as i thought it would be. Citrus and floral are in the nose... but there isnt much nose at all

T -hoppy and slightly spicy, floral with slight citrus. With a slightly malty sweet finish. Happy to see that the taste is not so faint as the nose.

M - good bit of carbination, medium thickness

O - Good flavor. Not the best ipa but overall its a Good and well rounded beer.

Received as an extra from tictactoe. Enjoyable and drinkable IPA. However, there is an odd taste that comes through, like a licorice rye flavor...I can't quite figure that taste out. The flavor reminds me of Wookey jack from Firestone. A lot of people love that beer so it might not be a bad thing, and I might be in the minority.

No hopsecutinor (not a hop bomb) but worth a go.
