The_Osprey (8520) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2017
May 2017 – Keg at Brewdog Shepherd’s Bush as ’BrewDog Hops Kill ?’, 7.8%. Used to be called ’Hops Kill Nazis’. Dark reddy, opaque, foamy light brown head, dotted lacing. Aroma is strawberry boiled sweets, general boiled sweets. Body is smooth and rounded with soft carbonation. Taste is medicinal dental rinse and washing up liquid, something like calpol, straw, lime, potent hops and some sweetness giving a sherbety vibe, some spearmint. The aroma is quite simple and syrupy but the flavour is all kinds of interesting. Pretty nice. (3.7)

Splitenz (370) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2014
When I had this back in 2011 I thought it was a IPA Red Ale. It was bitter and yet like caramelized brown sugar with a full on hop loveliness. Well, that’s what I said on Untappd way back then. Not sure if this has become some other beer since.

allmyvinyl (10845) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 1, 2014
Bottles from Brewdog online shop. Memory banks rate. More brown than red. Big toffee malt character, big pine and resin hops. Taste brings citrus bitterness and nuts. Bitter finish. Good.
