Pours a clear, bright Orange with a medium, tan head. Sticky lace. Aroma is very fresh, tropical fruit, and light bitter hops. Taste is Smooth, more of the tropical fruit, and a light pine hop, with a light to medium body. Very drinkable. Hard to believe it's 7.3% abv. With a name like Hopsecutioner, I expected this to be a lot more "hoppy", but by the end of the glass, I was pretty happy with it. Not your typical IPA, but worth it.

Pours a somewhat hazy copper. A one finger head of off white that dies down pretty quickly.

It smells pretty sweet from that big balt backbone. The hops are pretty citrusy on this one.

The taste is really surprisingly malty and the hops aren't nearly as citrusy as the nose. If I had to characterize them, I guess I'd say I get some lemon and orange characteristics. At 7.3%, this beer isn't hiding the alcohol as well as some other IPAs that I enjoy.

The mouthfeel is quite full. It's pretty creamy but is close to being too heavy, as it sticks around for a while making me smack my lips a bit to get rid of some of the alcohol.

For my first Terrapin, I'm not overly impressed. The beer has a good nose but it doesn't translate nearly as well to the taste as I was hoping. Makes me wonder if I need to go check the date on the bottle.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - golden yellow/orange body with 1/4" creamy head, tons of lacing

S - malty sweet aroma with a bit of citrus hops and earthy

T - bitterly sweet, a bit of that copper/metallic taste, earhty

M - tarty/bitter, makes your cheeks quench, fizzy on the tongue

O - an average beer. i was really expecting a lot more for something called hopsecutioner, but all i got was a slightly hoppy very earthy beer :-/

12oz best by month six, week three, ostensibly of 2012. Reviewed on 17 January.

Golden and clear, small head.

Citrus on the nose--lots of lemon--and some pine.

Grapefruit, lemon and pine flavors. Somewhat sweet. Maltiness more present than the nose, but this is definitely hop-forward. The hop profile kind of reminds me a bit of Pine-Sol, though.

Medium mouthfeel, light-to-medium carbonation.

Overall a drinkable IPA, and certainly not a malt bomb of one. But the hop profile isn't my favorite.
