Deep copper with blonde highlights around the edges and a soft, creamy bleached sand colored head that leaves sticky lace on the glass. Tropical fruity hops and a nice toasty graininess in the nose. Nice hop flavors here, a pretty killer hop bill that is at once herbal, dank and piney with a sturdy malt backbone. Medium bodied and creamy with a long resinous hop finish. Hopsecutioner is just plain good, nothing amazing here but a fine brew.

On draft. Pours a burnt, copper color with an off-white head. Head falls to just about nothing. Thin lacing.

Aroma is all hops. Quite floral and a bit piney.

Pleasant hop taste, not too overpowering and quite spicy. Herbal in the taste with hints of pine. Bitter finish obviously.

Medium bodied and surprisingly smooth. Moderate carbonation.

Good stuff, easy drinking and nice on draft.

Appearance: Pours a delicious looking amber with an orange hue. Has a thick creamy biege-ish head that sticks around for a good while and leaves thick rings of lacing. Like a spiral staircase in some sick twisted Italian horror film.

Smell: A piney hop aroma quickly followed by a grapefuit/citrus 1-2 punch. Senses are engulfed by a truly beautiful smelling brew.

Taste: Hop bite is a plenty with a smooth citrus taste lead by grapefruit and orange. A nice blend of flavors akin to that of a Two-Hearted or 90-Minute with a true onslaught of hops. Terrapin used 6 different types of hops and it really shows.

Mouthfeel: The piney taste provided a bit of discomfort after awhile, but this is a truly great tasting beer. Medium body with the appropriate amount of carbonation.

Drinkability: One trait I truly love about the Terrapin Brewery is that they really know the hop amounts appropriate for each style incredibly well. With that being said, I would have to say this is the year-rounder I'm gonna be reaching for more than their other brews. Delicious, well-rounded but could be difficult to finish a 6 pack. Leave some in the fridge for tomorrow, it'll be alright.

A - Cool amber color with a sticky head
S - Smells of citrus and hops. Pretty decent for an IPA.
T - Very hoppy for the name! Nice and bitter. Wonderful!
M - Dry but refreshing.
D - I may have this again. It's not too overpowering with hops but not weak enough to taste malt.

12oz Bottle - thanks to zacs for this one

Appearance - Clear amber/copper colour with an average size fizzy beige coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some really good lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, caramel, hops, oranges, grapefruit

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel and a fair amount of hops. There is also a lot of fruit flavour going on. I can taste grapefruits and oranges mixed with some pineapples and peaches. The beer finishes with a fruity and hoppy bittersweet aftertaste.

Overall - This beer had a little bit of everything going on taste wise. If you are a fan of fruity/citrus IPA's than seek this one out for sure. It's not a hop bomb, but it has an above average amount of bitterness. I'd drink it again anytime.

Beer notes from Nov. 2010: pours clear amber gold in color with a 1/2 inch foamy beige head that faded slowly and left very good lacing; looks like a nice IPA from the tap.

Smells of floral hops, piney hops, sweet malt, caramel, grains, wheat, grass and light brown sugar; hops dominate, but malts add balance.

Tastes of piney hops, floral hops, sweet malt, caramel, toasted grains, hay, grass, pepper and light brown sugar; the hops and the grains balance out well and this is a good beer.

Mouthfeel is light and smooth, with very light carbonation and a medium body that leaves a slight bitter finish. High drinkability, as this is one easy beer to put down.
