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

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.

AdolfoCC (82) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - MAY 1, 2016
Servido en un Spiegelau IPA. APARIENCIA: de color dorado, se observa algo cristalina y moderada a alta actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color blanco, de mediana retención, con burbujas compactas y algunas abiertas al centro. AROMA: lúpulo de carácter herbal es lo que predomina, con notas a pino, algo de “dankness”, atrás ligeras notas a frutos tropicales. SABOR: un amargor moderado alto de inicio, seguido de notas a pino, resina, “dankness” es lo que predomina, notas a frutos tropicales, guayaba, papaya, y un muy ligero dulzor de las maltas; en el retrogusto queda un amargor moderado, el cual es seco. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio con sensación oleosa, mediana carbonatación. RESUMEN: una IPA que no es mala, nada extraordinario.

borisz (399) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2016
Pours golden with a short lived white head. The aroma is lovely grapefruit. A very tasty grapefruit juice like taste with a kick in the mouth bitterness and a sharp grapefruit finish. Great beer

dapal (3) - Mazara del Vallo, ITALY - APR 30, 2016 does not count
Very fruity smell, bitter taste as expected from an IBU 100. Bright goldish the appearance, with a light head. Best with spicy food, or even alone in a pub.

BitchPls (711) - FINLAND - APR 26, 2016
Hazy, light yellow beer with a big white foam. Very fruity and crispy citrussy aroma with a hint of pineapple. Very lively taste with grape fruit, lemon, pineapple and a hint of coconut milk. Starts fresh, fruity and soft but turns quickly quite grassy, bitter and slightly sour which is a good contrast. This is a very good, fresh and fruity IPA with a good bitter aftertaste.

Lele (336) - Padova, ITALY - APR 26, 2016
ASPETTO: biondo oro un po’ chiaro. Schiuma fine, bianca e persistente. AROMA: tanto, ma tanto floreale, erbaceo, un po’ di caramello. GUSTO: amaro erbaceo, che stimola la lingua, molto persistente. Ben fatta.

goleiro (213) - Lublin, POLAND - APR 23, 2016
Z butelki buchnięcie chmielem, aromat nieco lupulinowy, leśny, ale i owocowy; w skrócie - chmiel chmiel chmiel. Barwa ciemno słomkowa, piana biaława, raczej niska, opadła do "kożucha"; piwo klarowne i nieco szampańskie, zachodzi intensywna i trwała nukleacja pęcherzyków dwutlenku węgla. Smak - chmiel, ok. Goryczka nie jest olbrzymia, jest duża, ale nie porywa. Piwa o mniejszym IBU bardziej waliły chmielem po mordzie - np. Brackie IIPA.

sjogro (1907) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2016
Bottle at home, bought at Van Alsem. Almost clear golden with thin white head. Very happy hoppy nose. Amazing strong marijuana-like hops through sweet caramel and strong citrus/grapfruit(peel), wheat, pine-resin. Strong bitter over under medium sweet backbone. Medium body and just under average carbonation. Mouthfeel is slick and oily. This is a nice beer!

Bottle split with Pauly Walnuts at temple, pours clearish golden with white head. Notes of dank grapefruit, resin, pine, and booze. Lighter bodied. Dankest beer this session at beer temple. Great hop lineup
