If you like your IPA's super malty sweet, and barleywine-ish, then this one is for you. This isn't what I really want from a hop forward IPA. Especially with a name like Hopsecutioner. One would think my taste buds would get destroyed. But I'm only left with a residual sweetness of massive malt.

Appearance - Pours pretty clear golden color with nice white head, decent retention. Nice lacing all around the glass.

Aroma - Citrus peel, solid malt aroma, grapefruit, orange, light yeast, big floral hop nose.

Taste - Taste is a light mixture of hops, citrus peel, malt and orange. The malt and citrus stick out the most just like in the nose. Really bitter finish.

Feel - medium bodied well carbonated slightly dry finish. Little hint of fingernail polish at the end.

Overall - About a middle of the road IPA, nothing off with it but nothing really stands out either.

Great Representation of the American IPA style however, not impressed.
The look is fine, nice slightly tindgy orangeish glow. The presentation is kinda cool but for the record, artwork doesn't appeal to me in the craft beer world. The nose is bright and citrusy with some sour milk like notes, not off putting in anyway with a almost tropical mango note and underlying maltiness. The taste is what I was expecting. Bright, floral and major citrus fruit character. Think along the lines of grapefruit with hints of mango. Very little sweetness and a nice underlying malt to carry it along. Some yeasty character and upfront piney hop bitterness all throughout the sip. The flavor is what Iv come to expect from a American IPA and although tastes great is somewhat boring to me. The beer doesn't have much complexity. The feel is a redemption for the lack of much else. A good carbonation with a medium body. Hop resedue stays with you for some time. Overall Darn good beer but kinda lacks at the same time. Ehh... Gibe me a Sierra Nevada Classic Pale ale and we'll call it even.

32oz draft, has a fluffy pure white head that dissipated quickly. Decent hops aroma with whiff of pine. Light amber clear color. Taste is a solid IPA; full on sharp hops with a sweet subtle malt finish. This is a drink-it-all-evening brew!
