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…

Clear yellow / light orange, with some white head. Aroma is loaded with hops, really pleasant! Taste is some malt sweetness and medium bitterness. Finishes rather dry.

Fukito (880) - 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 (562) - 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 (3193) - 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.

330ml bottle. Aroma is pineapple, mango, citrus. Appearance is light cloudy golden with a medium white foam. Taste is bitter and light sweet. Soft to medium carbonation. Dry. Very dry. Superb.

willisread (469) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 16, 2015
Bottle from Masuyo’s. Poured into a shaker pint. Pours an orange-gold color with a small off-white head that disappears quickly. Big aromas of grapefruit, pine and resin with a touch of malty sweetness present. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts out slightly sweet on the palate before the impending tsunami of bitterness overwhelms the palate. Nice bitter finish but not overly so. Solid IPA.

pastymc (17) - Niscemi, ITALY - APR 10, 2015
Bottiglia da 33cl Birra biondo intenso, torbida. Cappello di schiuma bianco chiaro non molto persistente ma tutto sommato compatta. Al naso il luppolo è molto evidente, con note agrumate, erbacee, con il malto che emerge leggermente alla fine. In bocca è ancora il luppolo a dominare, con note di agrumi; resinosa, amaro robusto equilibrato dalle note maltate nel finale. Finale leggermente astringente, lungo. Molto corposa, carbonazione medio-alta. Birra molto ben strutturata, senza compromessi: luppolatura abbondante e corpo molto alto, in stile ipa, tendente alla dipa.
