Here is what Terrapin has to say about this beer:
Hear ye, hear ye … All hopheads shall herewith rejoice! Terrapin has recruited ye olde Hopsecutioner to execute the exact hop profile for this killer IPA. You may loses your head over this one.
I found the Hopsecutioner to have the following characteristics…
- Appearance: Clear, orange amber with very little foam or lacing.
- Aroma: Hops, pine, apricot and citrus.
- Taste: Mild, lightly carbonated, well balanced with a slightly bitter, smooth finish.
- ABV: 7.3%
The Hopsecutioner was a little misleading in that the aroma would have suggested a very hoppy and most likely bitter beer. Surprisingly, the actual taste was well balanced and the flavors were quite muted. If you are looking for a hoppier beer that could be a session beer, the Hopsecutioner is certainly worth a try.
