Kangaroo Killer Pale Ale
Packaging: Draft, 12oz. Bottles
Kangaroo Killer Pale Ale by Copperhead Brewery is quickly becoming a go to Brew! Tony and I were actually able to sit down with Seth the day before he released it and half way through the beer I got a call from my wife asking me to leave because my son ran out of formula at daycare.
So I did what every dad in the world would do, I pretended like I couldn’t hear her and hung up. You know I couldn’t do that! I left and took care of business. Luckily for me, I found it out my local Specs a few weeks later and all was right in the world.
Kangaroo Killer Pale Ale was born with another name, do yourself a favor and ask Seth about it when you hit the brewery. 1st person to comment below with the story gets a beer on me!
Kangaroo Killer pours a hazy golden yellow with a white head that left almost as quickly as the photo was shot. You might see the hazy appearance and think it’s another NEIPA that the city is running wild with but you would be wrong! Kangaroo Killer Pale Ale is hazy, but it isn’t reallllly of the North east variety.
Sometimes you drink a Pale Ale and it’s really more of an IPA and vice versa, Kangaroo Killer doesn’t have that problem! It is perfectly balanced and has just enough hop bitterness to remind you its there. very smooth and clean drinking all the way through.
Kangaroo Killer Pale Ale isn’t a beer you should miss out on. I gave ‘Roo Killer a 4 star rating due to how well balanced and the amount of flavor Seth was able to pack in with only a 5% ABV makes this a perfect lake/river/summer beer.
I expected Kangaroo Killer to be similar to the NEIPA style and while it isn’t that, it is still damn good!
Sometimes you can be wrong about what you’re going to experience with a beer and you couldn’t be happier to be wrong. Copperhead Brewing knocked this beer out of the park!
Killer Kangaroo Pale Ale can be found around town at Specs and HEB for sure. I know other places like Hop Stop Humble, Hop Scholar and Drink of Ages Pub have all had it on draft before and would imagine that they would continue to carry the beer.
Kangaroo Killer Pale Ale is a great option for us to get both a beer with good flavor and also we can drink all 11 months of summer here in Houston. Have you made it up to Copperhead Brewery and had ‘Roo Killer yet? Let us know what Seth says when you ask him about the original name of Kangaroo Killer. Beers to you, Houston. 🍻

I believe Kangaroo Killer Pale Ale was originally released as some iteration of Yellow Tail Pale Ale but they received a “cease and desist” from our favorite winery from the land down under. But I agree with all our points, the ‘Roo Killer is tremendous.

WE HAVE A WINNER, Y’ALL! Seth tells the story way better than we could. Even though we owe William the beer, I’d still ask Seth about it next time you’re out at Copperhead.
