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

Bottle. Pours hazy gold. Aromas of tropical fruit, citrus and pine. Good biterness in finish with some fruity sweetness upfront. Wasn’t quite up there with the best ipas for me but still nice enough.

Muy buena IPA sabor a lúpulo característico pero que no tapa los demás matices, al igual que su fuerte graduación, buen trabajo de los de brewdog.

Bier ziet er mooi uit maar mist een schuimkraag. Smaak is erg lekker. Smaakt naar meer.

sm89walt (1914) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 16, 2016
355ml can from Beer Cartel, Sydney. A lightly hazy golden yellow with a somewhat lasting and lacing white head. Aromas of pine, tropical fruit, resin and a toasty pale malt character. Mid-weight on the palate with a gentle sweetness up front that accents the otherwise bitter-focus. Soft to medium carbonation finishing with a moderate to full intensity and length resin and grapefruit bitterness.

A pesar de que hace años era más "dura", su sabor es espectacular, amargo, seco, cítrico y quizás algo resinoso. Una de las West Coast IPA que no puedes dejar de probar si te gusta el estilo.

Looks like a seriously dehydrated person’s piss. Tastes excellent. Bloody expensive. Your choice!

Pours clear golden with minimal head. Citrus hoppy aroma. Taste follows the nose - citrus, grapefruit with some resin notes and long lingering bitter finish. Great stuff for bitter beer fans (although I am not one of them).
