COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ruthless India Pale Ale

Start with a colossal grapefruit aroma. Pile on bitterness after thumping bitterness, and ride the anarchy wherever it takes you. The caramel razor is sharp, but the resinous bite drills straight through your taste buds.

For blitzing the mediocre, raising hell and revelling in the aftermath, Jack Hammer is the end of the line. The hopped-up, pucker-mouthed terminal extreme of craft brewing. This beer is bitter. Very bitter. If you push that button, don’t say we didn’t warn you…

OG: 1069
IBU’s: Hopped to 200+ theoretical IBUs
Malts: Extra Pale
Hops: Centennial & Columbus, dry hopped with Citra, Amarillo and Simcoe

Tra il dorato e l'arancio, opalescente, schiuma bianca di buona persistenza. Aroma di passion fruit, ananas, mango e pompelmo, zucchero candito, floreale ed agrumata. Al palato stesse note di frutti tropicali e zucchero con un finale dove prevale un amaro agrumato che ricorda il pompelmo. Corpo medio, mediamente carbonata, texture leggermente acquosa.

Lloydy (68) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2016
330ml bottle. Very hoppy aroma. Initial caramel hint quickly overtaken by massive bitterness. A great hoppy IPA with the bitterness turned up to 11.

Can from Hops & Crafts Exeter, Aroma is a delightful hoppy mix of grapefruit & pinapple , the beer pours slightly hazy pale gold with a rapidly diminishing white head the taste is hoppy grapefruit up front , butterscotch with piney hop which is bitter but also with some balancing sweetness , light bodied with a hop fruity bitter dry finish . This is a solid good Scottish brewed American style iPA & my guilty pleasure !

Ippopodio (106) - ITALY - JAN 21, 2016
Una IPA alla Brewdog, estrema e piacione allo stesso tempo; dal colore ambrato con riflessi arancio, mostra una schiuma bianca, povera e poco persistente. Al naso casse di uva spina, lichis e frutta tropicale in genere, travolgono i sensi già allo stappo. In bocca è veloce e beverina con un amaro finale degno della migliore bile. Una coltellata permanente alla gola che ancora urla di volerne...

a naso profumi tropicali uva passion fruit in bocca sempre frutta ma smorzato da un amaro importante! corpo alto e a fine bicchiere alcoli ben nascosti ma poi a fine bicchiere li senti...

Pale yellow and bit hazy. Fruits are not dominating in aroma, actually it is quite hard to find them there. Instead there’s a lot of grass, hops, malt and some notes of grapefruit. Taste is unexpectedly soft, sharpness comes slightly out a bit later, but still has some sweetness besides. Some strange bitter side - mustard? After isn’t too long meadow is well balanced. Good IPA!
