Beer Review: Terrapin Hopsecutioner

The Hopsecutioner is an American IPA offering from Terrapin Beer Company out of Athens, Georgia. This 7.3% ABV and 72 IBU American IPA pours a nice golden orange amber color with a decent foamy head. Highlighted by six hops, there is no missing of the aroma nor taste as this one is enjoyed. What I did like about this beer was that they did well with the balance between the hops and malts and were able to keep down any overkill of the taste that is plaguing some IPA s on the market. You will feel the bitterness on this one, but that is expected. I mean it is an IPA. As far as my full details on this one then check out my video below and see my overall conclusion to this one. For me, this one sat at 3.5 out of 5 on my Untappd scale which placed it between good and very good.

Brewer Notes:

About the Beer: Light copper in color, this IPA has an aroma. of fresh pine and citrus. A strong malt backbone provides balance to an assertive hop bitterness.
