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…

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 (4273) - 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.

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 (224) - 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.

ABT_S54 (265) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2015
Served on tap at Brewdog Birmingham. Light straw colour with a fluffy white head which quickly fades. Aroma is fruity, citrus hop notes. Fruity hops, not a massive amount of maltiness to back the hops (maybe this had an impact on the watery mouthfeel) and even a bit of tartness. Not a patch on hardcore IPA - the only beer I have tried of Brewdogs which I have thought was worthy of their reputation.This one is not for me.

overtheline (66) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 17, 2015
330ml bottle, pours a clear light amber with a smallish white head that is not too long lasting. Aroma of pine sap and grapefruit. Initial sweetness and vague biscuity malt are soon battered away by the bitter hop onslaught. Big grapefruit peel, pine sap and paracetamol flavours in the super drying, astringent finish. This is not a timid beer. Brash verging on aggressive but very good.

Pours clear golden with a white head. Huge grassy pine aromas. Taste is grapefruit and tropical hop forward, finishing with pure hop bitterness. Solid IPA.
