Terrapin Hopsecutioner India Pale Ale 6 varieties of hops:
Simcoe, Amarillo, Cascade, Shinook, Centennial and Warrior.
Smell: Floral, sweet citrus, grapefruit
Taste: Nectarine, Mango, grapefruit, extremely dry and bitter at the end of the sip. Alcohol is hidden.
Feel: medium body, smooth through the middle of the sip. Has a thicker feel.
Look: Dark orange, white head, lacing on the glass.
Overall: I had this beer in a can. This pic on here has it in a bottle. Maybe that is why it tasted better. They are now doing alot of cans nowadays. This has more to offer than the name suggests. It tastes fruity and sweet, but dry and bitter on the finish.
It has a nice kick on the end. The carbonation has a nice softness to it as if you are drinking a fluffy cloud of yummyness.
I can not taste any soapyness as the other reviews have mentioned. Maybe they updated the recipe. I liked this one, as I do many of the Terrapin beers.

Very standard, yet quality, IPA. Had this in a restaurant near Ft Lauderdale.... Good with dinner, solid, but not a game changer...Enjoy it, but don't kill a close friend to trade for it ;-)

Hazy dark orange with a large white uniform head.

Smell is orange rind, pine, and grass.

Moderately bitter orange rind, grapefruit, grass, pine, and biscuit flavors.
