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

Blond body with a white creamy head. Nose of hops, light caramel. Heavily hop bitter. Nicely balanced. Not too extreme.

Wojo21 (175) - Pelplin, POLAND - APR 3, 2016
Mocny aromat owoców cytrusowych. Barwa złocista, nieco zamglone. Po pierwszym łyku od razu czuć mocną goryczkę, w smaku czuć dużo cytrusów. Piwo bardzo dobrze zbalansowane, wytrawne. Ekstremalnie pijalne.

ildjarno (36) - Vaasa, FINLAND - APR 2, 2016
Cloudy golden beer with minimal white head. Aroma has citrus, hops, grapefruit. Taste is really smooth and very hoppy with creamy malt base. Fine low carbonation, soft. Exquisite long bitter finish. The Beer is really well balanced. One of the best IPA:s.

Van de tap @Taptakeover Brewdog @Kaapse Brouwers. Mooi helder geel bier. Aromas van hop en grapefruit. Dit komt ook in de smaak terug. Deze is zoet-bitter, na de eerste zoetigheid komt de hoppige bitterheid naar boven. Een heerlijke IPA, klasse!

On the tap @ Brewdog södermalm. Almost clear with a thin white head. Really fresh hop aroma. Bitter as expected... Really nice stuff.

jakubwloszcz (156) - Piastów, POLAND - MAR 30, 2016
Złota barwa, piwo idealnie klarowne. Piana obfita, średniopęcherzykowa, trwała. Aromat bardzo cytrusowy, głównie grejfrutowy, trochę ziołowy. Wysycenie średnie, w smaku jest dużo cytrusów, owoców tropikalnych i trochę żywicy. Wysycenie średnie, czuć wysoką goryczkę już od pierwszego łyku.

Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur dorée, mousse abondante de tenue correcte. Arômes de litchi, pamplemousse et une légère pointe fleurie, voire mielleuse. Tout çà est très bien agencé, palais agréable. Trouvée à la Brasserie Delneste - Froidmont.

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.

ferrinche (72) - Santiago de Compostela, SPAIN - MAR 19, 2016
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.
