Terrapin Hopsecutioner

In the Terrapin mixed 12 pack, will be out in sixers shortly I understand.
12 oz bottle. Pour gives a very nice, mid-golden body with good clarity. Head is white, well formed and provides some lace.
Nose is that of a fresh, wet hopped beer which may be as much a function of its freshness as anything else.
Tastes are very simple. Initially very clean and hoppy – good, but after that it gets pretty sweet and the hops build a little. In addition there is also a slight floral note and even a bit of solvent-like alcohol.
Pretty much your standard American IPA with a dash of sweet fruit along with the big hop profile. It’s a simple, well-crafted beer but ultimately, Y-A-W-N! Why not a Wit, an ESB, a smoked porter, a maibock etc. My point being, do we REALLY need another hiighly hopped, American IPA? I’m confused. Seems like missing the boat a bit.
