Bottle at Kernel Brewery. Clear deepush briwn. Lasting beige head. Quite sweet malt but hops are good. Good peppery finish sting. Touch netallic.

On tap. Dark amber. Piney, floral aroma with some citrus. The flavour, at first, wasn’t as bitter as I expected but it grew steadily as the beer warmed up. Definitely Chinooky and not very complex but i liked it.

33cl bottle. Pours a chestnut/toffee colour with a decent head which falls away to some suds. The nose has ’cascade’, maybe pine with rosemary and there’s something soil-like too. The taste has grapefruit pith, some root vegetable (either parsnip or beetroot) and some nuts. The palate has a medium to full body with a big creamy texture and a very long dry finish. Overall, this is the best thing Brewdog have done on their own in ages.

VsXsV (3112) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 Sample from 33 cl bottle at SBWF 2011. Was labelled as "Hops Kill?", but according to James Watt this is the same beer. Dark red, clear liquid with medium off-white/light tan head. Hoppy, malty aroma with notes of caramel, citrus, toffee, grapefruit. Quite nice. Light sweet and medium to highly bitter taste with roasty, biscuity and malty notes. Medium bodied with OK carbonation.

Re-rating 2012-03-02. 33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Clear, deep red liquid with medium, thick off-white head. Looks good. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, fresh hops, pine, tropical fruit, biscuity malt, bread and caramel. Taste is light sweet, medium bitter and has notes of fruity hops and caramel. Medium to full bodied with good carbonation and sticky mouthfeel. Nicely hoppy amber, though a bit too thick body to be really drinkable. Upped the appearance by one, otherwise as before.

Koyo (251) - SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2011
Sample at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2011, apparently renamed to ’Hops Kill ?’ according to James Watts but what the heck, I’ll rate this one. Very rich aroma with caramel and loads of hoppy notes, citrus and pine, grass, very complex. Taste was just a hint of sour and sweetness with a nice dry bitterness to accompany it.

Keg at brewdog. Ill judged hop content. Big pine vibe but ultimately, this is a failed experiment by my reckoning.

Scopey (9998) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2011
Keg at Brewdog Bar Aberdeen. It pours deep ruby-red, with a thin beige head. The nose is pine, grapefruit, nectarine, ripe mango and caramel. The taste is resin, pine, leather, varnish, massive hop bite, caramel sweetness and grapefruit, with a long bitter-dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Great balance and very drinkable.
