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…

Pours a nice cloudy beer with a good white head. Smells pretty fruity. Grapefruit. Tastes really nice. Big fruity taste and nice bitter. Thick body and a very dry texture with a good average carbo.

Aromat bardz owocowy, amerykańskich chmieli, troche cytrusów, grejfruty, słodkawy, świeży. Piwo bardzo klarowne, złote, z mała drobnopecherzykową pianą. W smaku od razu uderza goryczka, jak dla mnie wcale nie, aż tak mocna, jednak wyrazista i dobrze ułożona, dalej pojawiają sie cytrusy. Goryczka całkiem niedługo zalega i nie pozostawia nieprzyjemnego posmaku. Podsumowując, bardzo konkretne piwo, czuć jego moc, czuć bezkompromisową goryczke.

rafael52 (267) - Łódź, POLAND - JUL 2, 2015
Kolor: złoty, lekko zmętniony, opalizujący.
Piana: średnio obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, dość szybko opada.
Zapach: średnio intensywny, zdominowany przez amerykańskie chmiele, cytrusy, tropiki, żywice, iglaki, trochę żółtych owoców, wyczuwalna lekka szmata.
Smak: dość wytrawny, wyraźna goryczka, średnia w kierunku wysokiej, lekko zalegająca, o charakterze cytrusów i żywic, na finiszu wyczuwalny delikatny karmel.
Wysycenie: średnie, dobre.

Pours a mostly clear amber with a thin white head that slowly disappears. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruits, resin, and pine. Flavour is citrus, tropical fruits, resin, pine, medium bitterness, light pale malts and a medium dry finish.

Flanfl (215) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle. Hazy pale yellow colour. Huge white head. Crazy aroma, lots of citrus and peach, exotic fruits, some dryness. Flavour is similar, lots of citrus, the peach is shyer, same level of exotic fruits. Loooong bitter finish. Not crazy bitter but its probably because I had two other beers before this one. Great IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big frothy and white head with good retention. Hazy golden colour slightly flocculate. Aroma is resin, fruit (citrus, peach), caramel and toasted malts. Taste is bitter and malty with fruitiness, intense, with bitter aftertaste. Thick and oily palate.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2015 Cloudy deep golden, small head. Rich aroma of strawberry and citrus. Dry with solidm body and surprisingly crisp mouthfeel. Lots of lychee, elderflower and grapefruit. Really bitter finish. Well executed clean IPA.

venom666 (544) - Elche, SPAIN - JUN 22, 2015
Almost clear golden color with medium white head. Lively carbonation. Aroma is really West Coast, full of juicy tropical fruits (mango, grapefruit), but also sweet citrus fruits, pine and resin. Taste follows the aroma, lots of tropical fruits, citrus fruits and grassy. floral and piney notes, with a crazy bitterness of the aftertaste. Really hop forward beer, maybe a bit unbalanced, but really good.

This stuff is awesome! Bitter as hell but with loads of citrus hop character and flavour by the bucketload. One of the best IPAs I have tasted. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
