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

Stefano (1971) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2016
Golden coloured beer with a medium white head. Aroma is dominated by lots of hops. Flavor is again lots of hops, grass and grapefruit. Heavy palate and lovely finish. Really love this one.

Clear pale color with tiny white head. Aroma is clear hops, citrus and grape. Taste is sweetish with bitter finish. Taste is like an IPA has to be. Great beer.

@sbwf16. Krallig utan att kännas tung, välhumlad, schysst fruktighet, lagom maltsmak, lagom beska. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dnicolaescu (2041) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 1, 2016
CAN 33 CL. Clear golden, soapy white head. Aroma has a tiny bit of citrus and lots of piney resins. Taste: starts with light sweet grapefruit and pale malts, soon overwhelmed by a huge piney and pithy bitterness. A bit old school, but I still like this kind of IPAs.

Antzrhere (30) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours hazy yellow with white head, good carbonation. Good aroma of grapefruit and pineapple. Taste of grapefruit, resinous hop, grass and slight caramel. End taste is clean bitter, dry spicy cracker bread and slight pepper. A more traditional styled american IPA that would work well with a spicy meal like a curry.

sulawang (1048) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2016
Visual: Pours marmalade orange with large suspended bits, a very small dissipating head, thin ringed retention with spotty islands, slow sporadic streams. Nose: super bright orange-grapefruit hop oils (lvl-6)-pungency Attack: thicker-crisp bite Mid-palate: orange-mango hop oils, controlled zingy alcohol detection, (lvl-6-sweetness), yellow grapefruit, grassy-green hop cones Finish: tongue numbness, toasty toffee barley malt aftertaste, long bitter hopped finish Summary: A really, really nice showcase of a quality IPA. Balanced sweet grapefruity malts with a superb smooth-thick mouthfeel, and the hops are bold yet never overbearing. I particularly like the re-emergence of the barley malt at the finish. Very round and profound. Recommended.

Bottle ar pub. Pours hazy honey color with small white head. Aroma is hoppy citrus. Taste is fresh and bitter grapefruit, subtle malts. Palate is acidic with strong carbonation. Smoother in the end. Pretty nice.
