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…

330ml Bottle. Fantastic Hoppy, Fruity, Bitter IPA. Aroma is Citrus Grapefruit. Perfect balance of bitter and dryness. Excellent. Only slight criticism is that its a bit too drinkable for 7.2% abv!

Tuoksussa sitrusta, tunkkaista ruohoisuutta ja humalapellettisyyttä. Nätti olut: oranssihko, kirkas mutta seassa paljon pieniä partikkeleita. Tiheä vaahto. Maku yllättävän yksioikoinen ja teollinen. Humalapelletit tulevat mieleen. Vahvan ruohoisa, hieman mäntyisä. Kuivan rapsakka suutuntuma, hieman epätasapainoinen. Humalointi vaikuttaa vitsiltä eikä harkitulta, maistaisin vain varoituksena.

Barwa zlota z biala lekko przybrudzona piana szybko schodzaca do cienkiego kozuszka, ktory tez szybko znika, slabiutki lacing. Aromat intensywny, czerwonego grapefruita, bardzo przyjemny. W smaku wytrawne, bardzo goryczkowe z cierpkim posmakiem soku z czerwonego grapefruita i delikatna slodycza na koncu. Dluga chmielowa goryczka utrzymuje sie na podniebieniu ale nie zalega choc po pewnym czasie jest troche meczaca. Piwo sredniotresciwe, fajnie zbalansowane przez co srednio do dobrze pijalne.

A la biere comme a la biere, paris: pours orange with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit, more citrus, and maybe some flowers. Taste is pretty bitter. Sweet finish. Bitter hoppy aftertaste. Really good.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2015 Bottle from Tesco. Pours almost clear golden. Aroma of strong citrus and grapefruit, lots of hops, some tropical fruits. Taste is strong grapefruit, pine, grass, plenty of dryish hoppiness. Long bitter finish. It is very grapefruity bitter indeed.

Clear gold, medium white head. Strong and lovely US hop aroma, notes of citrus and some spicy herbiness. Balanced bitterness that isn’t too much at first, sweet malty notes in the background. Tropical fruit and citrus. Finishes bitter, warming and lightly malty. Nice!

Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours golden with a thick creamy head with a moderate amount of sediment floating about. Body is medium with mild carbonation. Nose is quite pungent. Booze does appear but a big malt backbone does disguise it quite well. Typical west coast aroma wise with tones of tropical fruit but well balanced with a touch of honey sweetness. Slight melon appears as an undertone with almost a touch of sourness coming through as well. Taste isn't as aggressive as I would have thought. I found it very well balanced. Earthy hops were pretty dominant with some resin. Tropical fruits also come through as well. Finish is quite dry and bitter. Awesome!
