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…

At a tasting, thanks Gunnar, small bubbly head, a little hazy very light orange color, piney aroma with some orange, grapefruit and some fruitiness, flavor of citrus and shrubs with some maltiness in the back,medium mellow bitterness, suprisingly balanced for Brewdog. Excellent.

Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Märts 2014, City Beverage Londonis Old Streetil, 33 cl. Valades üliklaar kuldne; korralik hele vaht küll tekib, kuid kaob kiirelt. Aroom on joovastav... vaiguselt tihke ja täidlane, see oleks nagu keedis päikesepaistelisest sügise algusest männimetsas, kuhu pulli pärast segatud ka üliküpset troopilist mangot, ülikibedat greipi, ülimahlast mandariini... oooooooohh. Juues tundub kerge, kleepjas palett ilmneb alles neelatades, mässides siis kogu suuõõne mõrkja ning vaiguse kihi sisse. Mis mõrksusse-kibedusse puutub, siis paraku mingit võimsat kipitavat elamust siin ei ole - sarnaseid humalapomme olen BrewDogilt varemgi saanud, nii et ses suhtes ei erine see kuigivõrd teistest uue laine IPA-dest. Tunnistust ülisuurest IBU numbrist annab vaid kergelt tuim tunne keelel - keel oleks veidi nagu paiste läinud. Tõele au, see on mõnus tunne. Maitses tunda tugev linnaseline alus, mis kohe puuviljasusse upub ja siis mõrksusega kattub. Järelmaik on... pikkkk... ja tuimestavalt pehme, kleepjas-vaigune, kurku jääb kihama mõrksuse torge. Tõesti väga hea asi, kuid turunduslikust aspektist üle haibitud - kopiraiterid panevad kergelt üle võlli.

Draught at BrewDog Shoreditch. Pours a hazy yellow color with a small white head. Aroma of malt and hops. Taste is of malt, hops, citrus and alcohol. Body is above medium and carbonation is average. Has a faint fruity tartness to the finish. Super crisp and bitter. Very drinkable.

jercraigs (8334) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
2014-11-20. Lightly hazy yellow orange body, moderate frothy white head. 3+ Pleasantly hoppy aroma, interesting fruity melange includes notes of tropical fruit, sweet lemon, citrus. Flavour is similar. Moderate bitterness throughout, fruity hop character has similar melange of tropical fruit, light citrus and others than I can’t quite define. Lingering bitterness in the finish is amplified by moderate alcohol. Average bodied palate with good carbonation. 3+ Good, quite tasty and quaffable. Bottle from Appelation Wine, Edinburgh.

Bottle from Bottledog. Strong hop aroma already. Earthy and hoppy with a hint of citrus. Long bitter finish. " You be my calm I’ll be your pneumatic drill.." Lovely :p
