I will admit, the interesting artwork of this "hopsecutioner" is what attracted me to the bottle, but what i found, was a above average IPA. While India pale ales are not normally my favorite, i did enjoy this ale from terrapin beer co. Its is a cloudy ale, thats appearance does not strike me one way or the other, but it has a strong and wonderful smell to it. The taste is above average, but i would not call it out stating, and the mouthfeel is pretty average. Overall i would say it is a beer worth picking up.

A delicious headache in a glass. A simple go to beer, if its in the cooler and only other choice is a Sweetwater or bud light... You'd better believe you go for the hopsecutioner. But overall its easy to Drink and tastes good.... nothing that will make you say wow or want to write home about, but easy and good.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, chill-hazed, copper coloring with a filmy, clingy, white head. Nose of resinous hops and tart grapefruit forward, with a tangy caramel backbone, and piney highlights. Great nose! Flavors are grapefruit and pineapple forward, with a tangy caramel and roasted backbone, peppery herbal notes, and piney resinous tones throughout. Smooth and balanced, on a light, smooth body. The aftertaste is tropical fruit, with a subtle bitter resin character. Smooth, resinous, slightly dry finish. Very tasty and very drinkable.
