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.

Bottle ar pub. Pours hazy honey color with small white head. Aroma is hoppy citrus. Taste is fresh and bitter grapefruit, subtle malts. Palate is acidic with strong carbonation. Smoother in the end. Pretty nice.

malushky (42) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2016
330 ml bottle from Wanstead Tap. Pours hazy golden with a short-lived white head. Hoppy aroma of citrus, blood orange, some peach and loads of hops. Taste starts fruity, ripe orange and quickly gives away to big hoppy bitterness. Average carbonation, long finish, surprisingly drinkable with all the 200 IBUs. Very good.

GoddamnNoise (54) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - SEP 18, 2016
33cl bottle @ home. - Aroma: aromas of peach, mango, grapefruit and tropical fruits. - Appearance: good appearance. Light golden-straw color. Very light hazyness. Average head thickness. White head with good retention, made of quite big and irregular bubbles. Above average retention. Almost no Brussels’ lacing. - Taste: light sweetness, medium-to-high bitterness, a little bit of sourness (a citric touch). - Palate: light-to-medium body, watery-to-oily texture, average carbonation, very long dry finish of hop bitterness and some fruity flavors of peach, mango, grapefruit and tropical fruits. - Overall: good appearance and good aromas of tropical fruits. Very long dry finish of hop bitterness and fruity flavors (grapefruit, peach, mango). Quite drinkable despite its theoretical above 200 IBUs, which are very good balanced with the malt sweetness. But even with that good balance, it is too much bitterness for my taste. Good Beer.

Gubihumle (584) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2016
Så for søren. Her er der humlebitterhed nok til flere øl. Farven er mørk gylden med en hvid skumkrone. Aromaen er citrus, fyr og harpiks. Smagen er ligesådan.

uckelman (634) - Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2016
Pours clear, golden, medium brilliant white head. Aroma is pine resin. It is sort of bitter, but not as bitter as one might expect from the description. Medium-full body, a bit sticky on the finish.

likeatrainwreck (467) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2016
Pours a place clear straw colour with not much head. Flavour is dominated by a dry, grapefruit bitterness... pine resin... bit of grass... Dry, bitter finish. Tasty.

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2016
- klare gut durchsichtige goldene Farbe mit einer grobporigen Schaumbildung - starkes Aroma nach frisch geschälten Orangen - geschmacklich schlägt die Hopfenbitternis dann schon sehr brachial zu - was mir fehlt, ist eine gewisse Ausgewogenheit, zwischen Malz, den sehr schönen Fruchtaromen und des alles dominierenden Hopfenanteils Fazit: Etwas unausgewogenes IPA
