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…

On tap @ brewdog Birmingham. Probably my favourite brewdog beer, possibly! Tropical power hits the ode straight away, big big bitter hit on he gob followed by some really nice fruits and a bit of toasted sugar too. This is one tasty beer. Went down well with my toasted cheese sarnie, which by the way was also awesome. Great sarnie, great beer, what’s not to like!! Good times.

Golden and little cloudy. Small white head. Aroma is citrus and pine. Little malt sweetness then smashing resinous bitterness. Dry finish. A little too much on the resin. Not as pleasant as smoother ipas.

Aromat: totalny grejpfrut, cytrusy, trochę żywicy Wygląd: idealnie klarowne złoto Smak: totalnie niczym nie zakłócony - czysty aromat, smak chmielu. głównie cytrusowy ze świetną goryczką. Świetne west coast ipa.

Lukasmh (363) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours crystal clear with nice, slight cream, head. Aroma is fresh and juicy hops. Pine, grape, fruits, elderflower and peach. Subtle sweet caramel malts. Taste is juicy hops, resinous, sweet peach, citrus, slight grassy. The caramel malts is there, but gets overpowered by the fresh hops. Really bitter mouthdrying finish. Oily medium body.

R4N5H (210) - SINGAPORE - APR 25, 2015
33cl bottle at The Globe, Hong Kong on 20/04/15 - poured into a tulip glass. Clear light golden amber colour with a small white head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits, and some hops. Bitter taste, grapefruit and caramel. Carbonation too soft and the alcohol overwhelms the flavour. I was looking forward to this, but was disappointed.

De l’IPA bien sèche ... Tranchante ... C’est sans doute ce qui me plaît le plus côté IPA, une amertume pas ronde pour un sou ! Quelque chose d’à priori désagréable mais qui gagne au final .. Pas dans le fruit exotique, mais dans le résineux, dans l’agrume pas encore mure, pas encore gorgé de soleil et de sucre ...Je ne devrais pas aimer ça et pourtant. Ce texte est passablement abscons; mais c’est ainsi.

Fukito (890) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 19, 2015
Clear light golden with a medium white head. Aroma is citrus with some tropical fruits. Flavor is sweet booziness with somes citric/ pineapple hops and a boozy bitter aftertaste. Medium to heavy palate. Nice IPA, but I don’t like the boozyness.

hens (583) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - APR 18, 2015
0.33L bottle. Clear golden color with small white hat. Light rotten egg an vegetables aroma. Nice and slowly light robust. Rotten stuff. Very enjoyable bitterness, but not perfect. Bitter grass, cold underground celler taste. Very nice bitter finish. Edit. NB! Brewdog new bottle label design is very bad :( old design was original and elegant for beer world. Very sad for that brewdog changed bottle labels :(

Holmen1 (3221) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 18, 2015
Flaske fra polet i Verksgata, Stavanger: meget frisk og aroma av furunål og citrus (spesielt grapefrukt), utseendet er standard med kort skum. Maltkroppen greier ikke å hamle opp med bitterheten, så helheten er ute av balanse. Et engangskjøp.
