Poured from a 12 oz can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear golden orange pour with 2 fingers of frothy white head. Nice lacing around the glass.

S: Bready malts and citrusy hops. Sweet and earthy.

T/F: Grains and light malts form the backbone... mild sweetness that is quickly cut off by bitter hops. Resinous... pine and citrus. Slightly herbal with a bit of spice. Medium to light in body. The finish is bittersweet citrus.

O: A solid IPA... probably more of a DIPA by ABV. Not elite by any means, but with good flavor and bitterness. Goes down easy. I'd have it again. Probably wouldn't seek it out.

Great session beer in my opinion. Has just the right amount of bitterness to drink a few in a row. Not too overboard on the bitter, with just the right amount of sweet to match. It is a good all around beer, and one of my favorites to enjoy at Suntrust park in Atlanta.

Has a nice aroma, sort of earthy - malty. The taste is slightly less than that of other ipas / d ipas but bold nonetheless. If hops is your thing, and it is mine, you will like this Brew. It sits on the palate very well and is not in the least bit overbearing at all. Overall a very solid IPA that I would drink again.

Terrapin Hopsecutioner | Terrapin Beer Company. Poured from the can into a pint glass, the head's two fingers thick, with lateral lacing, and a medium gold body.

Smells kinda onion and garlic-esque.

The taste is like that, too. Personally not a big fan of IPA's like this.

Medium mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

I'll rate Terrapin Hopsecutioner | Terrapin Beer Company with a 3.75. Perhaps if I get a fresher can I'll re-review this.
