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…

tom10101 (3577) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
Bottle (330 ml) @ À la Bière comme à la Bière (Paris). Slightly hazy golden with a medium diminishing off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is of resinous hops, light malt, some citrus and perfume notes. Taste is also piney with a good malt backbone, perfume notes, citrus, fruity notes and light bitter finish. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Dry finish. Good West Coast IPA. Drinkable and refreshing. Good balance between perfume, pine and citrus. Tasty.

McWorta (830) - LUXEMBOURG - APR 20, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2015 Deep golden nearly orange in colour with a small frothy white head. A beautiful bouquet of citrus, orange, grapefruit, light flowery and faint hints of black currant and resin develops. The taste develops further some mango/maracuja and hints of litchi notes. A light livelyness and a touch of leads to a rather slick dry medium-full bodied beer. A light fruity sweet touch which fades quickly into a hop bitterness which goes on and on leaving a long dry finish. Pretty intense but still well balanced!

wihlan (388) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2014
Flaska hos föräldrarna. Rätt mörk för för att vara en pale Ale. Fruktig doft och skumkronan drar lite åt det gröna hållet. Härlig beska, en bra ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (7501) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Bottle, shared during our epic night at MicroBar in Reykjavik, with Arnie and Stein. Golden with orange hue, lovely aromatic hop profile, filled with tropical fruits and a touch of conifer. Long bitter finish. After recently having had a few let-downs from Brewdog in the IPA department (in particular, the entire "IPA Is Dead" series), this is a return to greatness. Delicious.

Scottishchris (354) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 6, 2014
Bottle from Cornelius. Pours crystal clear golden, small head. Big resinous sticky nose, grapefruit. Body is lighter than I remember from last taste, loads of bitterness. As another eater has suggested, sits somewhere between punk and hardcore. Good.
