A bit cloudy but nice copper colored ale. Very smooth IPA; great for drinking with not that much bite to it. Overall, a nice beer to have on a hot day providing that it's chilled. Goes well with grilled meats and hamburgers. Will be drinking again!

Terrapin Hopsecutioner brewed by Terrapin Beer Company, with an ABV of 7.30% This American IPA pours out a deep golden amber color with a nice thick white head. There is a nice amount of lacing to this IPA , it sticks to the side of the glass well. The smell is rich with hop bitterness, earthy grains and malts. Lot of earthy tones in the smell of this brew. So far this is one inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is bold with hop bitterness. This American IPA has a bit of a hop bit to it, if you are a fan of hops this is an IPA for you. You also pick up on some earthy grains and malts in the taste, however they are mild compared to the hops. The body of Terrapin Hopsecutioner is a medium to heavy, to heavy. This brew , does go down nice, and would go nice with a dinner. It is hard to pick up on the 7.30% ABV in this brew. There is nothing to overwhelming about Terrapin Hopsecutioner, as long as you are a fan of hops. The mouth feel is Hoppy, Bold, Rich, Clean and Refreshing. I would look this brew up again if I was in the mood for a bold Hoppy brew. Overall I'm Terrapin Hopsecutioner a 4 out of 5. Terrapin Beer Company, did a nice job with this American IPA.

Pours a hazy orange with one finger of white head.
Smells faintly of grapefruit, with lemon zest, pine, and two row malted barley.
Someway somehow this beer was a bad batch, all I taste is diacetyl/rubbing alcohol with hop bitterness, absolutely beyond fucked up.
Mouthfeel is hard to measure after such a horrific taste.
Overall, looked and smell decent, something went wrong with the beer, as I'm a week before the best by date and it's somehow bad already.

A - Burnt orange pour, just a finger of head.
S - Not a lot of hopiness, tropical fruit.
T - Hops and tropical fruits are most noticeable.
M - Light/medium bodied IPA with ok carbonation.
O - This is was just an 'ok' beer for me. Definitely drinkable and others should try it, I just wont be seeking it out again.
