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…

Drank at a bar and as a draught. Very bitter with a very sharp taste. There’s some fruit hidden in the taste too. Good beer.

MrHangover (3054) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours a cloudy blonde beer with a small white head on top. Aroma of bubblegum, floral hops, fresh limes and citrus. Flavour is very bitter and incredibly full bodied. A bit unbalanced to the bitter side and not easy drinkable. Still a very good IPA, liked it a lot.

Ragnampiza (599) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - OCT 7, 2013
330 ml bottle from beer-shop.it, served in a pint glass. hazy light honey colour with tons of particles and tiny floaties, small off white head. Tropical punch aroma, with notes of pungent citrus, grapefruit and pine needles. Taste is very resinous and citrusy, with moderately high bitterness. Clean and long lasting bitter aftertaste. Alchool well hidden, pleasent carbonation, and dangerous drinkability. Not bad, but perhaps I had higher expectations about this one.

TyggaBrown (430) - NORWAY - OCT 7, 2013
Pretty good, classic citrus aroma, with grapefruit most prominent. A bit unbalanced, the bitterness is a bit too "cold" and stingy, and lasts very long. But the IPA character is great, and the beer in total pretty much what you hope for.

Sindsoron (21) - POLAND - OCT 6, 2013
Good bitter beer, perfect for hopheads. Nice resinous aroma with hint of citruses and mango, and sligth aroma of toffee. White head, that degenerates quickly, but stays until very end as thin cover. Colour is light, pale like fresh unripe oragne.
