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…

jamaty (1811) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 5, 2015
Como dice la descripción comercial, simplemente devastadora. Bonito ambar profundo y nebuloso. Buena espuma inicial que desaparece pronto dejando islas cremosas. No hay malta en el aroma, sólo lúpulo: piña, maracuyá, uva. Muy muy intenso. En boca patada inicial de lúpulo por doquier brutalmente frutal para evolucionar a un amargor intenso y profundo, resinoso, perseverante. Postgusto insanamente amargo y seco. Conjunto extremadamente potente y seco. Poderoso nectar de lúpulo... sólo para paladares que lo disfruten...

adasko (1824) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 3, 2015
Great sweet fruity aroma, with notes of grass and aniseed. It’s clear, golden color beer with rather poor head. But for an IPA it look quite good. In taste it really is a hammer. Bitterness is main theme of this beer from the beginning, all the way down to the end. Second note is apricot. In the end very strong aniseed flavour. The bitterness in aftertaste is very short, very well placed. It’s perfectly carbonated, mouth feel is dominated by the contraction from the bitterness. Alcohol is perfectly covered. It is a great beer, it really is.

burgundydrinker (7) - - JUN 3, 2015 does not count
Bouteille de 33cl, dans une tulipe La Chouffe. Rien que le fait de la verser dans le verre embaume toute la pièce. Une sorte de salade de fruit exotiques, soutenue par des notes résineuses et florales impressionantes. En bouche c’est l’explosion, ça serait futile de dire que cette bière est ultra houblonnée, mais cette description se suffit à elle même. Une texture huileuse, peu de carbonation, un final bien amer. Le gout reste en bouche des heures après la dégustation, pas la peine de la boire en premier si vous prévoyez de découvrir plusieurs bières. Bref une bière puissante sans être agressive,sans aucun doute une des meilleures IPA que je connaisse et une des meilleures des chez Brewdog. Une perle!

Very citrusy, heavy orange aromas, strong grapefruit. Hazy orange with a decently lasting white head. Dry, bitter, loads of citrus flavors. Medium bodied.

Bamsen78 (5009) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2015
Bottle, KØ15. Pours nearly clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of fruit, malt and flowers, with notes of hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour with cotric and malty notes and estery touches. Soft carbonation. Bitter aftertaste with notes of needles. Okay, quite decent, actually.

Cokemonkey11 (467) - - MAY 27, 2015
Ruthless India Pale Ale. Brown bottle, tesco, Edinburgh, 330ml. Scent is like a plant. Sage, rosemary, dirt. Pours medium golden, transparent and slightly hazy. Taste is dense concentrate of sour hops. Citrus, lime maybe. Finish is light and slightly dry. Excellent. Everything about the scent and taste reminds me of yucca, sage, and rosemary - feels like hiking in California.

tomekboniek (487) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 26, 2015
Butelka. Barwa ciemno złota, klarowna. Piana biała, średnio wysoka, utrzymująca się do samego końca. Intensywny aromat grejpfruta, karmel. Wyrazisty smak grejpfruta, cierpki. Wytrawne. Goryczka średnia do wysokiej, niezalegająca. Piwo świetnie zbalansowane, alkohol dobrze ukryty.Dobrze pijalne. Piwo, które zapada w pamięć.

Bottle from Mi-orge Mi-houblon, Arlon. Pours clear golden, white head that dissipates quickly. Strong aromas of grapefruit, lemon peel and hops. Taste is very hoppy, but not too bitter, contrary to the claim on the label. I also tasted grapefruit, lemongrass and orange. Carbonation is a bit weak for my taste. Mouthfeel is full and creamy and the nice bitter taste is very drawn out. Overall a nice beer.
