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 does well to cram so much flavour in such a short profile. Arid dry finish that comes after the rich caramel, the crashing bitterness, the hints of the grapefruit like things and no gaps. Breathtaking but not in a bad way.

Pours hazy yellow with bubbly head. Aroma of lime, lemon, pine, very hoppy. Taste is very bitter but balanced with sweetness of malt. Reminds me of a more powerful Punk IPA (which I love). Slightly oily and slick mouthfeel. A lovely beer, powerful and satisfying.

Saeglopur (1332) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - AUG 26, 2015
330 ml bottle BB 14/07/16 from Ammersin 5, Vienna.
Golden, clear body, with a big, fluffy, white head.
Aroma of grapefruit, lime, resin, grass, pine, some pineapple, biscuit.
Taste follows this pretty much.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishe bitter, dry, resinous, zesty, piney, grassy, a bit alcohol warming.

Very nice. A straight, bitter, dry IPA, with a dominant grapefruit and resinous taste. Still well balanced, with the right amount of sweet malts. Alcohol is noticeable, but doesn’t drink too heavy. Not my favourite style of an IPA, but enjoyable.

Reimer96 (1638) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 26, 2015
Pours a hazy orangish copper with a frothy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, light pine, resin and more grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit, resin, sweet pale malts, more grapefruit and a smooth bold bitterness throughout. Very well balanced and never astringent!

Nice, fruity aroma with the malt shining through. The taste is hoppy at first followed by a long, bitter aftertaste.

hoplover66 (67) - Barcelona, SPAIN - AUG 20, 2015
Color naranja turbio, espuma fina que desaparece rápidamente. El aroma es cítrico, resinoso y algo maltoso. En boca es suave, con presencia de malta, caramelo, pomelo, pino, muy equilibrada. Buen cuerpo y carbonatación baja, pero suficiente. Final amargo, no exagerado, bastante persistente. Una IPA excelente.
