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

AssKicker (240) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - MAY 16, 2016
Bue à la pression chez Brewdog Barcelone. Belle couleur orangée, mousse moyenne. Odeur houblonnée, mais de manière peu commune. Arômes portées sur l’herbacé et le retour résineux... mais surtout la poudre à canon... vraiment spécial, faut aimer... Amertume pas mal prononcée, bière relativement sèche, très bonne longueur en bouche. Pas trop fan néanmoins.

buddybutch (58) - Nantes, FRANCE - MAY 15, 2016
1st class IPA. Extrem bitterness, very very long lasting on tongue (as you could expect in a 250IBU beer). Almost no head. Orange and citrus aroma. Very sweet taste, low alcoholic feel.

De la cervecera artesanal escocesa Brew Dog(UK) esta "Jack Hammer" una lupuladisima American IPA de 7.2% ABV y sorprendentes 250 IBU’s, para ser mas grafico una cerveza masiva como la "Corona" tiene 19 IBU’s de amargor, lo que conlleva una elaboración mas cuidadosa para equilibrar el lúpulo. En apariencia es una cerveza de una corona de espuma ligeramente medina, de burbuja compacta muy apretada, color blanco cristalino, de retención duradera y carbonatación baja, su color siguiendo las tendencias de las IPA"s pajizas, con algo de turbiedad y ya un cuerpo pleno como debe ser para estas cervezas de excéntrico amargor. El aroma ya es muy agresivo y se siente como imperan lúpulos americanos en su mayoría produciendo olores cítricos, cascara de toronja, naranja, mandarina, de las maltas solo se distingue el dulzor, ligero caramelo, volviendo al lúpulo un dejo herbal al final. Ya en el paladar es realmente de carácter rustico como lo indica el slogan de la etiqueta, los lúpulos nos dan un fuerte sabor a toronja, cascara de naranja, naranja, muchos cítricos y aunque tiene un buen equilibrio con el dulzor de la malta si es incisivo el balance hacia el amargor, es tomable a pesar de lo que se podría pensar pero no muestra mayor complejidad que la saturación de los lúpulos, no niego que es rica y en lo personal me agrada solo que viniendo de Brew Dog esperaba una IPA mas rica y complicada.

Bawelt (578) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAY 9, 2016
Bonne bien que basique. Nez très agrumes (orange, citron, un peu de pamplemousse), fond de mangue, un peu d’ananas. Bouche assez sèche, assez amère. Beaucoup d’agrumes. L’attaque est assez fruitée et tropicale. Longueur amère, très portée sur les agrumes.

ipabr (162) - Somerset, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2016 Pale straw colour. Superb smell of citrus and grapefruit. Intensely bitter. A great beer to end a session. Excellent beer if you’re ready for it, hard-work/unpleasant if you’re not.

Medium white head, light gold colour, little hazy, fair lacing. Strong aroma of hops, grapefruit, lemon, spruce. Very bitter taste, long finish, medium body, average carbonation. Excellent IPA! Very hoppy, very well balanced, extremely drinkable. Fantastic!

Silvan7 (1106) - Samarate, ITALY - MAY 2, 2016
Bottle @ crazy bar Casorate. Giallo ambrato carico, velata, con schiuma bianca , fine piuttosto persistente. aroma intenso fruttato da lupopoli americani in dry hopping (amarillo sicuramente) agrumata, di pompelmo, maltata con toni che tendono al caramello ed ai cereali. erbaceo percepibile ma meno intenso. secca, amara , senza molti compromessi, anche il profilo maltato è sovrastato dall’erbaceo/resinoso del finale. spigolosa, poco calda, non molto carbonata mediamente corposa. non del tutto equilibrata, ma decisamente armonica.
