Terrapin Beer Co. Hopsecutioner IPa

The Terrapin Beer Company is in Athens, Georgia.

This 7.3% ABV beer pours a gleaming copper in color.  There is a short head of off-white foam.  The aroma is hoppy, a good amount of pine, over ripe tropical fruits and melons, and some citrus rind.  The taste follows the aroma, on a solid bed of rich, almost sweet, malt.  While the beer drinks rich, it is surprisingly light in the mouth for its ABV and intense flavors.  It finishes smooth, but quite bitter.
