COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

bhensonb (13995) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 6, 2016
Can from Brewdog Brussels. Pours translucent gold with a white head. Aroma has a burnt rubber hint - really strong hop mix! Med body or so. Flavor is fruit, citrus, earth, orange bombs. Decent malt backbone - tho sort of lost in the hop mix. This is not NW, this is NxNW! Wowser!!!!

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2016 Aus der Büchse getrunken (direkt von BrewDog bezogen). Goldig-amber im Glas mit rechtt instabiler Schaumkrone.In die Nase steigt sofort herbe Fruchtigkeit. Voller Grapefruitgeschmack mit lang anhaltener Restbittre.Für Kenner eine Referenz, für Einsteiger eher problematisch.
