F**k you in the Face
This category goes out to my friend Michael Kraus. He said that he likes a beer where the quality that people want in it (the sweetness, hops, bitterness, etc) is so strong it fucks you in the face. This one has a clear winner. Terrapin’s Hopsecutioner

This beer is nothing if not hoppy. Of the many breweries in the country, Terrapin handles hops some of the best. Of the many breweries in the south, Terrapin is one of the most known and respected. The beer is incredibly hoppy, but still drinkable. It is truly a triumph to Spike and the Terrapin crew.

Poured a dark golden color with two finger foam head, lots of lace. Aroma had some fruit and floral hops. Taste started out slightly sweet and malty with a creamy feel then turned a bit dry with a floral bitterness that stuck around turning a bit sticky. Overall I liked it but it seemed to lack flavor up front and by the time the bitterness hits you its dry sticky and to late.

I bought a 6 pack at Bruno's in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

Crystal clear golden pour with an inch of foamy head.

Big piney nose.

Piney hops and malt are very well balanced, grapefruit and orange in the middle with a clean, crisp finish.

I've had this beer in my fridge for 3 weeks, so it may have outlasted it's prime. I remember the pine being stronger up front with a better fruit middle.

It's a great IPA fresh, my review is probably a lilttle low, hopefully a find it fresh in my neck of the woods one day.

Poured from the bottle a bright clear copper color with two fingers of white head.

Lighter aroma of pine and grapefruit.

The taste opened with pine and grapefruit and a balanced with a hit of earthy malts.

Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation.

A pretty decent IPA but not one of my favorites.
