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…

Bouteille 33cl. Couleur orangée légèrement trouble. Peu de mousse disparaissant vite. Nez fleuri et fruité (litchi) amertume marquée. Mériterait un peu plus de goût. IPA agréable.

willisread (461) - 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.

Gylo (202) - Lublin, POLAND - APR 2, 2015
Świetny cierpki, wytrawny smak. To faktycznie rzadkość aby aż tyle było wyciśnięte ze słodu. W dodatku jeszcze ten kwiatowo-cytrusowy aromat i mocna goryczka. Zdecydowanie polecam.

It's like the Hardcore, but softer and with more fruit flavour. It's a great beer, really well done!
