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

wvhoran (455) - Tasmania, - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle. Hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma is dense hoppy, sweet toffee, marmalade, oranges, passionfruit, pine. Flavour is sweet toffee, sweet orange, passionfruit, mango. Sticky-sweet. Bitter and very dry but not as "devastatingly" bitter as the punks make it out to be. Good stuff.

loco_gallego (217) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 26, 2014
Blonde légèrement orangée, belle mousse blanche disparaissant assez vite. Arôme sur-puissant, résineux et fruité plutôt citrique et légèrement malté. Amertume puissante, franche et très persistante. Le citrus est le seul qu’on puisse sentir au milieu de cette amertume. Fin de bouche légèrement sèche, mais surtout l’amertume qui dure, dure, dure....

0,5 pullo@ One pint pub. Keltainen lähes täysin kirkas. Tuoksussa vahvasti humalaa, mäntyä ja vähän sitrusta. Vahva humalan maku ja jälkikatkeruus. Mäntyä myös maussa.

guzgorog (655) - FRANCE - AUG 16, 2014
Blonde orangée, belle mousse blanche, retombant assez vite en laissant une belle dentelle. Nez très fruité de citron, litchi, fruits de la passion, noix de coco. Amertume brutale, mais ne masquant pas les saveurs de citron, pin, pamplemousse, fruits de la passion. Assez bon équilibre quoique penchant un peu trop vers l’amertume. Houblonnage de malade. Amertume très très persistante.

Straw coloured with good carbonation. Loose white head to start but leaves really good lacing. Aroma is banging. Loads of guava with resinous pine in tge background. Loads of resin in the mouth with an awesome dry finish that just keeps you coming back for more. Bottle.
