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.
