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…

This is as ruthless as it sais it is. Very bold beer by brewdog. Strong grassy flavours with citrus and hoppy taste all over the place. Bitter as hell. Very crisp. It’s kind of an experience to try this beer.

Bottle at home. It pours mostly clear golden with a creamy white head. Floral and grassy hoppy aroma. Citrus fruits. Caramel malts. Sweet and bitter hoppy flavor. Grassy and citrusy. Spruce and resin. Long bitter grapefruit like finish.

Beautiful IPA, great bittermess that borders on too bitter, but this is perfect. Grapefruit? apricot? I don’t know but I love it.

Botella. Algo han hecho con los lúpulos...esta cerveza no esta bien hecha o el lúpulo esta mal, creo q mas lo ultimo. Olor dominado por el queso, nata...algo herbal, heno, lodo...en boca mejora algo...bastante dulce. Brewdog últimamente me defrauda...

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2015
WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, klarowne. Pian drobno i średnio pęchjerzykowa, wysoka.
AROMAT: Intensywny. Cytrusowo-trawiasto-ziołowy. W tle karmel i odrobina alkoholu.
SMAK: Ziołowo-karmelowe. Na finiszu cytrusy. Goryczka średnia do wysokiej, długa.
OGÓLNIE: Niewątpliwe jest to piwo, które zapada w pamięć. Doskonale zbalansowane, o wyrazistym smaku i charakterystycznym (dla siebie) aromatem.

corkyrory66 (864) - BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2015
Une ipa sur le modèle west coast, d’un niveau abv de 7,2 %. Couleur abricot moyen, avec de la matière en suspension. Bulles quasi nulles. Mousse blanche qui tombe vite, et constitue un nappage manquant un peu de consistance. Arômes de pamplemousse, agrumes, fruit de la passion, pointe de mirabelle. 1ère bouche soyeuse sur des agrumes, pamplemousse et épice. Arrière-bouche avec une amertume très travaillée, pointe de poivre blanc. 2ème sur malt/agrumes/bois blanc, dans un bel équilibre. Arrière-bouche qui travaille l’amertume. 3ème avec des fruits blancs, épices orientales. Arrière-bouche complexe, assez longue. Longueur avec d’autres nuances encore, et un bel ensemble. Jambes marquée en vagues. Levure épicée et précise, belle veine, mais un peu légère. Alcool très adéquat au genre, il fait un beau travail. Finale de belle amertume, mais j’en attendais plus. CONCLUSION : une bière très belle, mais qui manque de visuel et qui faiblit un rien sur le final. Dommage ...

ChtiBreizh (127) - Rennes, FRANCE - MAY 1, 2015
Golden and little cloudy. Small white head. Aroma is citrus and pine. Little malt sweetness then smashing resinous bitterness. Dry finish. A little too much on the resin. Not as pleasant as smoother ipas.
