Great brewer, great hop-forward beer, but 2nd tier IPA.

A: Medium copper, haze, rich off-white head. Strong lacing and appearance. Sticky.

S: Pine dominant (apropos Georgia). Grapefruit, orange peel, and pineapple blend with grass and bright malts.

T: Like smell but with more caramel malts. However, soon the hop bitter, citrusy and tropical flavors grow and it's all hops into a big and bitter, bright, blaring finish.

F: ok, a bit too sweet for me.

O: Always enjoy this brewer, but this one's a mid-pack IPA.

Appearance: Poured semi-hazy, Amber color. Two finger off-white head, good retention and lacing.
Smell: Nice resiny, piney, fruity aromas and a good sweet malt smell.
Taste: The hop flavors weren't as prominent in the taste as the aroma. Pretty malty for beer with hops in the name.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, nice creamy mouthfeel.
Overall: Not a bad beer, just thought it was a little underwhelming, probably won't seek this one out again in the future.

Not as hoppy as you would think, but an excellent beer nonetheless. Very underrated on this website.

Drinking a tall draught right now at Buffalo Wild Wings. I'd previously tried it from the bottle and wondered if it would taste different from the keg. The answer: no. Both times I've been disappointed. As a previous reviewer opined, the name is deceptive. This is not the hop bomb the name suggests. Not even close. It's not bad. Not bad at all. But it's utterly forgettable. A "Hopsecutioner" should never be forgettable.

Poured from a bottle into pint glass in January 2015.

Appearance: Deep amber, with nice thick and light colored head. The head lasted a pretty long time, and left a thick coating on the inside of the glass.

Smell: Pleasant, with a strong influence of hops bitterness in the aroma. There is some sweet malty aroma, which balances the hops for a nice aroma.

Taste: A nice mix of hops, and herbs in the flavor, that make for an interesting and complex amber ale, but with a strong bitterness from the hops. There is a nice after-taste with a hint of bitterness from the hops, which lasts for a while but not too long.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and crisp, with a medium body.

Overall: This is an interesting and complex IPA that is not overwhelmed by the hops.
