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…

330ml brown bottle. Hazy golden with some floaties. Small thin layer of white cap. Aroma has grapefruit and a bit of tropical notes. Clean malts and grapefruity hops with decent bitterness. Lightish bodied. Enjoyable.

Aroma of fresh compost. Golden amber with nice foam. Very dry. Rather jarsh. I was warned. Someone is hiding medicine in my beer and i dont want to get better. I want my malt.

It’s been quite a while since I’ve had an IPA as good as this. Nice grapefruit aroma, plenty of bitter hops.

Draft in Xuanmu. Once the pint is poured here comes a fruity aroma. Golden colour with a white head, which goes really quick. Tastes bitterly fruity. My favourite drink

Bottle. Pale golden body, small head. Big hoppy aroma with mostly American varietals. Dry hoppy taste with spruce tips and alpha acids... yeah, mostly fresh spruce tips. The body is too thin and overhopped for my tastes - I like malt and some levels of caramel/breadiness to balance the acidic hops in IPAs. This one is out of balance. It could be a better beer if they used hops in a less blunt manner. But this is BrewDog, after all. Quote: "terminal extreme of craft brewing". FFS, you just dumped a shitload of popular hops into the kettle and bottled the result. Where is the "craft" in that? You’re no Jackson Pollocks of hop-sprinkling.

reebtogi (4741) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 11, 2015
330ml bottle pours a golden orange colour with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit with some hints of tropical fruits and caramel. Taste is a bold grapefruit hop bitterness with a tropical fruity and mild caramel malty sweetness. medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a hop bomb that is balanced and tasty. Recommended.

patricks110 (2016) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 9, 2015
One hella IPA. Pours a light orange highlight of gold with a finger of dense, sticky head. Lacing heavy and sticky. The aroma is pine and grapefruit heavy, light herbal notes, pineapple, mango and citrus fruits. Bitter and heavy citrus fruits. Acidic, more bitterness, sweet tropical fruits; pineapple, mango, grapefruit. Bitter lingers forever.
