Pours out a nice orange, small head, very mild lace.

Citrus, wonder bread, slight pine and toffee make up the smell.

Citrus, floral hops, tobacco and saltless saltine start of the taste. The finish is citrus and grass, light but lingering. A little thin for the style.

A nice, aggressively hopped brew from the South. Almost would call this their attempt at a West Coast IPA. Though I wouldn't put it in my normal rotation (which I can't anyway being I live in CA, not GA), I would never turn one down if offered. Nice job Terrapin!

Poured from a bottle into a 6oz tasting glass.

A: Pours a hazy amber-orange color. Head is off-white and retentive, yet thin.

S: I honestly didn't get much aroma off of this beer. The nose is muted and faint. Very slight hints of sweet caramel malt and grapefruit/citrus resins.

T: Slight citrus hint, faint pine notes, mild malt body, quite sweet on the finish. The alcohol is very well hidden, this beer drinks very well for 7.3%

M: mild bodied, leaves a lingering pine/citrus note on the finish.

O: I honestly didn't care for this beer. I found it a very "average" IPA at best. I had always wanted to try this beer and had a friend stop in Georgia to grab it for me. The only saving grace is that it is VERY drinkable for it's ABV.

Hopsecutioner is a nice ale. Not perfect, but if you like hoppy ales, this is a pretty good IPA. Nice bitter start, and it feels good on the mouth. Why do you like hoppy? You want flavor, right? Hopsecutioner has flavor, and it looks and smells like an IPA? Is it perfect? No, but this is a nice IPA. Alcohol is 7+%, so be aware.
