12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours an apricot color. The head is a fluffy one finger off-white shade. All in all, the looks are typical for the style: frothy head, okay retention, and plenty of lacing left behind. S: Aromatically, hops do jump out from the glass - mainly the floral, lemony variety. Sourdough bread seems to make an appearance, too. I’ve grown to point where I can smell Centennial hops from a mile away, and this brew’s got ’em. T: Flavor-wise, it’s sweeter than what the aroma let on. I was waiting for the bitterness to prick the tongue...and instead I got a sweet, caramel forward brew where the hops are only there to balance instead of being showcased. Late in the aftertaste, some floral and spicy hop notes do appear. Aside from the typical caramel and toffee notes, it’s also a bit earthy. M: It’s a rather clean brew, which at least helps quash some of the sweetness well. It glides down the tongue with a crisp bite, too I’d almost call it thirst quenching...no, I will call it thirst quenching. Not dry by any stretch, but it does a good job of going down easily anyways. The sweet finish doesn’t bother me at all. O: I’ll give it one thing - it’s drinkable. Very drinkable, even for a 7.3% IPA. It just doesn’t have the most interesting flavor is all. If I had bought a 6 pack of this (which I didn’t) I wouldn’t have any trouble killing it.

From bottle best before 4-1-2015, or two months from now. Pours amber with a big white head and lots of sticky lacing on the glass. Aroma is a subdued citrus hops. Taste is the same, with some maltiness and a slight bitterness. Slight bitter finish. Oily medium mouthfeel. Good. Easy to drink.

I love Hosecutioner. For me it’s a local beer. With that said, there is a slight charcoal taste to it. that I don’t like. Still this is a great beer and 2-3 of them will have you buzzing. Their tours are great, if your ever in Athens GA.

Arcadia (57) - DeLand, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle from ABC. Pours a perfect hazy golden amber with a small white head and some serious lacing. This is a beautiful beer, particularly this year. Aromas are hoppy as ever - pine, citrus, grass, floral. Taste is incredible well balanced; sweet, a little bitter, and very smooth. Texture is creamy, body is pretty full, and the finish is long. A favorite at this point. Acquire.

This beer is great when it's great. Check your bottle date if buying a six pack. Sometimes presents serious oxidized flavors. When you get this on tap it's a fantastic well balanced IPA that border lines on a double or low end imperial. Hop aromas come through great and the flavors of hops and malts balance out well. This is an excellent well balanced beer that's extremely drinkable. Medium body, thin head after settling, refreshing, not too dry or malty. Wouldn't expect the ABV rating, there's no heat from alcohol. This is Terrapins best beer next to RYE and High five

BOSSbrewer (2097) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Bottle at Porch Nite thanks to Raith. Pours a golden yellow with two fingers of white head. Aroma is some citrus, mainly grapefruit with a strong malt backbone. Slightly sweet. Medium bodied. Really nice IPA.

Zeswaft (1425) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 6, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2015 Bottle. Malt heavy IPA. Citrus hops but there is a lot of sweetness, almost syrupy. Almost tastes like there are chocolate malts. Somewhat disappointing but still an above average IPA.

Leighton (12303) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle shared at Garvie’s. Pours clear fold with a frothy white head. Smells lf caramel, bread, old pine and light marmalade. Medium sweet flavor with sugary bread, ripe orange, slight toffee, pine, leaves. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finishes sweet and lightly oily with piney hops, caramel and bread. OK.

joejames (239) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours slightly hazy amber orange, nice two finger head, nice lacing and retention. Aroma is very floral with tropical fruits. Taste is has an assertive hop bitterness with just the right amount of sweet malts to balance. Medium bodied, light carbonation, creamy resin mouth feel. Finishes balanced with notes of pineapple, tangerine, pine and caramel. Good IPA.

12 oz. bottle to sampling glass. Lovely dankness from the start with a faint citrus note. Pours fairly clear to a yellowish / orange color, very thin white head with minimal lacing. Nice medium bitterness loads of hops and hints of malt that stays on the palate for awhile. Super drinkable with a nice flavor that lasts!
