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

kaserov (172) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 6, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2016 Color dorado claro con capa de espuma de un dedo de grosor. Carbonatación a tope (muy presente en boca también). Aroma brutal, a lúpulos y fruta, super intenso. En boca es distinta, primero un sabor frutal, después amargor que va in crescendo. El amargor que deja en boca entre trago y trago es algo típico, aunque también he de decir que me esperaba algo imposible de beber (debido a los, en teoría, 200 IBUs) y ha sido todo lo contrario. No creo que llegue ni a 100 IBUs reales. Muy recomendable y más sabrosa que la Hardcore IPA (en la cual está peor disimulado el alcohol, dicho sea de paso).

Olorin (9) - Graz, AUSTRIA - AUG 2, 2016 does not count
330 ml bottle. Clear golden colour with a small but long lasting white head, soft carbonation. Grapefruity and hoppy nose, full mouthfeel, sweaty, strong and incredibly long lasting bitterness in the aftertaste. Except the bitterness no outstanding IPA, it’s rather an experiment how much IBUs you can stand.

Fules (791) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 26, 2016
Kicsi, de tartós hab, szűretlen, világos borostyán szín. Illata intenzív, citrusos, gyantás. Citrusok, fenyők, déligyümölcsök tombolnak az ízében, rendkívül mozgalmas. Közepes szénsavval, nagy testtel, kiváló egyensúllyal rendelkező sör.

From the can. Appearance is golden, slightly cloudy with a small head that quickly dissipates. Aroma very citrus, grapefruit with a hint of oranges. Taste coppery, typical IPA, but not unpleasant or overbearing. All in all not bad, but not one of the best.

alexmate (70) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2016
Appearance: Sort of an orangey yellow, quite cloudy, almost looks like a wheat beer. Aroma: Grapefruit, citrus, mango\lychee, grass\green aromas, and some sort of biscuity caramel. Taste: A bitter green grassy aftertaste. Some slight malty caramel flavours, the grapefruit is present.

JoTheO (112) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2016
Can 330ml. Yellow straw with a white head settling with plenty of lacing. Aroma has the resin of a whole pine forest. Medium carbonation. Taste opens with bitter citrus and grassy notes. Some caramel and alcohol sweetness. Then, all the hoppy bitterness kicks in aplenty. If you like hop drink, this is it.
