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…

Bottle. Pours hazy to cloudy amber, medium creamy beige head, dissipates slowly, good lacing. Aroma is pine, spruce, a touch of citrus. Flavor is light plus sweet, pine, spruce, caramel. Guessing it was not the freshest. Medium body. Meh

Jado (632) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAR 4, 2015
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold amber with a creamy lasting white head and lively carbonation. Aromas of lemon, orange, pine, mango, grapefruit and passionfruit. Taste is juicy citrus up front before a very firm grapefruit zest and pine resin bitterness washes through. Lingering finish with some lemon and menthol notes. Long citrus aftertaste with residual bitterness. Really well done.

Flaska Bishops örebro. Orange kulör. Kraftfull och trevlig tropisk humledoft. Mango, passionsfrukt, ananas, apelsin och tallbarr. Dessa frukter återfinns i smak toppat med en fin och stark beska. Jämnheten i denna öl är fantastiskt. Känns aldrig trött på något sätt. Därav en stadig favorit

Great tasting brew - one of the best from Brewdog. Strong, bitter with citrus and very slight fruity notes. Highly recommend

Keogh (127) - Świebodzice, POLAND - FEB 28, 2015
Barwa bursztynowa, w butelce jakieś farfocle których ciężko nie nalać, piana drobno i średniopęchrzykowa, średnio trwała. W aromacie cytrusy (grejpfruty) i owoce tropikalne. W smaku grejpfrut, średnia słodycz, spora goryczka (przyjemna, fajnie sie rozchodzi) - ale nie aż taka jak zapowiadają w opisie ;). Piwo oleiste, bardzo pijalne, wysycenie niskie. Całkiem udane piwo, tylko te farfocle....

Piwo jasne, wytrawne. Potężna dawka goryczki, z posmakami trawiastymi i tytoniowymi.

Loads of hopps (grapefruit). Strong @ 7.2%. Best thing is, it’s local brewery to us! Fine Ale!

From a bottle. Huge grapefruit aroma and flavours, a great example of the style. Not for the faint of heart, as you would guess from the name.

Clear golden with a white head. Passion fruit, mango, blood orange, a bit citrussy. Lightly carbonated, a bit slick, full body. Bit sweet at the beginning, fruity hoppy bitterness getting a bit dry. Long finish.

La JackHammer è una Double IPA con uno spiccato IBU (100) che domina la sua degustazione. Dal colore ambrato, al naso presenta note tropicali ed erbace. Al palato l’approccio è maltoso e resinoso ma subito dominato dal finale amaro netto e pulito. Il finale è erbaceo e molto persistente. Chi ama le birre con un finale ’schietto e deciso’ dovrebbe provarla!
