hman43 (1156) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Strong apricot smell with a little mix of hops. It has a cloudy golden color with a slightly less then medium head that clings to the side. A tasty mix of floral citrus with apricots as well.

Dacrza (852) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2016
DATE: September 25, 2016... OCCASION: a nice afternoon with Rich and Mary finished... GLASSWARE: Kisatsky Tavern pint... first impression: wow, this sizzles as it pours from the can... a thick, foamy two-finger head lifts itself from the glass... even, open crags of bubbles ring the glass, while the white head takes its sweet ol’ southern time collapsing in its middle... the body, a beautiful, clear amber display of bubbles spinning in torrents... six hops produce a thick, earthy, slightly citric aroma that hints at grapefruit, mint, and resin.... the first sip is a mouthpiece of hops smash, with the activity continuing throughout the drink--a full-bodied, demanding presence... aftertaste is strong, with a spiciness--pepper, something sharper--that makes for a chewable, savorable experience... not to mention, a strong malt base that just makes the profile larger.... at 7.3% ABV, formidable and worth the purchase... among the other IPA mix-pack choices, not heads and shoulders above, but the best of the bunch... they all merit some compliment.... ultimately, not as BIG as other IPAs, nor as diverse..

Hopsecutioner is and excellent IPA and could almost be mistaken for an imperial. Sure hope the fact that Terrapin is now majority owned by Miller/Coors doesn’t hurt the quality.

bigguns22 (789) - Maryland, USA - SEP 1, 2016
Poor a a orange to light amber with a medium white head. Aroma is a very nice balance between hops and malts with a touch of sweet. A bright and citrusy beer with a good caramel malty back bone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

commonshawn (1048) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 31, 2016
Bottle at 30 90 in Nola. Light copper gold. Clean sweet aroma. Strongly hopped, but has a nice sweet undertone that makes it very pleasant. Alcohol well hidden. Relatively easy to drink without having weak body. This is a good beer to lose your head to.

ElCapitan22 (338) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Pours a clear honey color and has some mild lacing. There is some head retention as well. This has a malty aroma and also some caramel notes. Tastes quite bitter, but the malt definitely comes through at the finish. Overall, this is a nice beer.

Draft. Copper color with a large white head. Aromas a primarily caramel malts, straw, florals, and pine. Flavor follows in the same vein.

Breezy4life (52) - - AUG 6, 2016
Color is red copper. Aroma is heavy on malt with hints of hops. Taste- spicy hops with a strong malt background. Very balanced. More similar to a pale ale than an IPA, IMO. Mouthfeel is heavy; malt lingers. *11 oz pour on draft ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bartzilla (620) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Dumb name but a great beer. An overhopped bundle of joy. Digging it. Smells piney and hits all spectrum of hop flavors when you drink it. Good stuff.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2016
Pours a medium golden amber color. Aromas of citrus and fruit. Flavor is a big hop presence with subtle tastes of fruit and vegetables, then more hops. This is one damn fine IPA.
