    1st Taste: Hop taste builds, it's not upfront. The aroma remains thick, some matly sweetness but the taste seems slightly weak.

    Overall: Decent but not a great IPA. Flavors are good and the hop profile is unique and interesting. But the knock is that the brew doesn't finish strong.

  • Poured clear without that much white foam. I only poured half a glass which could have impeded the foam. Blotchy, wet lacing from the beginning. Retention was minimal.

    Aroma is hops up first. Piney, citrus, while floral seems to be strongest. A sweetness from the malt is there with hints of honey.

    Taste is really juicy and a good amount of hops of the floral variety out on top. Citrus is there too while the pine is difficult to find. Sweetness balances from malt and honey.

    Despite the juiciness it dries out in the finish. Light carbonation and high end of light body.

    The hops aren't over the top making this an easy and refreshing IPA that you cold have several of at a time. The juicy burst and floral flavor and aroma are a pleasant break from the west coast. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • You love hops, you ask for hops, and Hopsecutioner delivers! This Killer IPA earns its title by being brewed with six different hops to create an aggressive, yet exceptionally well-balanced, beer. Expect citrus and pine on the nose with a beautifully bitter finish; a strong malt backbone keeps the bitterness in check. We brewed this IPA for hop lovers… you may lose your hop head over this one!
