COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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…

Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours golden with a thick creamy head with a moderate amount of sediment floating about. Body is medium with mild carbonation. Nose is quite pungent. Booze does appear but a big malt backbone does disguise it quite well. Typical west coast aroma wise with tones of tropical fruit but well balanced with a touch of honey sweetness. Slight melon appears as an undertone with almost a touch of sourness coming through as well. Taste isn't as aggressive as I would have thought. I found it very well balanced. Earthy hops were pretty dominant with some resin. Tropical fruits also come through as well. Finish is quite dry and bitter. Awesome!

330 ml bottle from Tesco. Thin off white head. Lots of suspended bubbles in amedium light coloured beer. Thick hoppy aroma. Touch of sweetness on first taste followed by a wave of bitter and followed by the alcohol.

En deilig og kraftfull aroma, med dyp og deilig undertone av mango, litt sitrus og tørket frukt. Flott gylden orange farge. Og bitterheten er på topp, her får du virkelig en bitter gjennomgang på en positiv måte for de som aldri får nok, men likevel balansert fordi den har en kraftig kropp, med deilig typisk vest coast ettersmak. Bare å nyte for humle elskere! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours hazy to cloudy amber, medium creamy beige head, dissipates slowly, good lacing. Aroma is pine, spruce, a touch of citrus. Flavor is light plus sweet, pine, spruce, caramel. Guessing it was not the freshest. Medium body. Meh

Jado (657) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAR 4, 2015
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold amber with a creamy lasting white head and lively carbonation. Aromas of lemon, orange, pine, mango, grapefruit and passionfruit. Taste is juicy citrus up front before a very firm grapefruit zest and pine resin bitterness washes through. Lingering finish with some lemon and menthol notes. Long citrus aftertaste with residual bitterness. Really well done.

TychoJames (500) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2015
Flaska Bishops örebro. Orange kulör. Kraftfull och trevlig tropisk humledoft. Mango, passionsfrukt, ananas, apelsin och tallbarr. Dessa frukter återfinns i smak toppat med en fin och stark beska. Jämnheten i denna öl är fantastiskt. Känns aldrig trött på något sätt. Därav en stadig favorit

Great tasting brew - one of the best from Brewdog. Strong, bitter with citrus and very slight fruity notes. Highly recommend
