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

Wojo21 (110) - POLAND - APR 3, 2016
Mocny aromat owoców cytrusowych. Barwa złocista, nieco zamglone. Po pierwszym łyku od razu czuć mocną goryczkę, w smaku czuć dużo cytrusów. Piwo bardzo dobrze zbalansowane, wytrawne. Ekstremalnie pijalne.

Cloudy golden beer with minimal white head. Aroma has citrus, hops, grapefruit. Taste is really smooth and very hoppy with creamy malt base. Fine low carbonation, soft. Exquisite long bitter finish. The Beer is really well balanced. One of the best IPA:s.
