33 cl bottle, Sheffield, UK via Brewdog shareholder online preorder. Dark ruby brown, almost totally transparent. Fruity hop aroma, cherry and peach, spruce resin and faint mint with cloves. Sweet, then immediately taken over by the hops, a mingled caramel resin combination with a strong pepper finish. More fruit come through on the very end.

Bottle, Coppers, Ncl. Big caramel and hop aroma, blackcurrant and cherry cough mixture aftertaste, caramel comes back to the fore midway through. Could be seen as a bit harsh on the palate, the alcohol is not too overpowering, but still needs slow sipping! esp0r (2866) - NORWAY - DEC 22, 2011
Bottle enjoyed at home labeled "Hops Kill ?"Sizzler80 (502) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 21, 2011
Deep red, big beige head. Smells of citrus zests, grapefruit, caramel and some malts. Taste reveals some smoky malts and some sweetness. Finish has nice hoppy bitterness of zests and grapefruit. Nice beer from BD
Deep ruby red, creamy off-white dissipatung head. Hops hops hops, subtle fruity and malt liquor flashes. Medium low carbonation, slightly bitter, slightly sweet, plenty of hops, grassy, dry. Every smell and taste are subtle and balanced. Nothing overpowers with hops the dominant ingredient. Decent drop.

bar, Camden. Dark reddy brown looks with a thin tan head. Piney hop led nose with sweet malts and tropical fruits supporting. Again, in the flavour the hops played the starring role with some assertive bitterness and nice roasted notes. Very high drinkability factor. Wouldn’t mind seeing this added to their core range of bottles which is starting to look a bit tired.
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours deep amber with a light brown head. Intense hoppy aroma with pine and citrus. Medium bitterness. Long, bitter aftertaste. Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Bottle thanks to crusianbeer. Poured deep amber with a beige head. Aroma and flavor were caramel, pine, alcohol, and citrus. Body was light with low carbonation. BrotherLogic (252) - California, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Unbalanced but not unpleasantly so. Not much in the way of hops so maybe hops bruise nazis would be more appropriate?

Bottle through a friend. It poured a dark clear amber liquid with a medium sized brownish head. Lots of hops on the nose, tropical fruits, grass, citrus and a hint of dill (sorachi?). Similar taste but the dill isn’t as noticable. Nice beer only downside is the aroma I relate to dill.
