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

Very nice composition with both smell and taste in balance. Both are small explosions though. Typical ipa with equal taste and smell. Not subtle.

Pours a clear orange with minimal head. The aroma is strong and boozy. The taste has a pleasant bitter bite with a somewhat citrus flavour through it.

felixll (31) - Rosemère, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
Blonde légèrement cuivrée. Au nez, de subtils aromes fruités et résineux. Bouche doucement sucrée, mais rapidement enveloppée par un savant houblonnage résolument américain. Rétro-olfactivement très complexe: pamplemousse, abricot, gomme de pin, etc. Tout pour plaire, une très bonne IPA rafraichissante a souhait!

Pale yellow, white lacing foam head. Nice hoopy aroma and strong bitter lasting taste. Some citrus notes. (Velp 201606)

romanstep (155) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUN 19, 2016
W nosie fajny aromat cytrusów, głównie grejpfrut, później pojawiają nuty żywiczno-ziołowe plus trochę dojrzałych białych owoców. Barwa jasno złota, klarowne, drobna, niska piana, ale dość długo się utrzymuje. W smaku jest bardziej wytrawnie niż w nosie. Głównie cytrusy i żywica, w tle trochę dojrzałych tropików, głównie ananas. Spora goryczka, grejprutowo-ziołowa. Klasyk. Butelka do 27.11.2016

stoigniew (105) - Łęczna, POLAND - JUN 17, 2016
Aromat świeżych owoców tropikalnych, trawa cytrynowa, zioła prowansalskie. W smaku wyraźna słodycz kontrowana doskonałym amerykańskim nachmieleniem, trochę ciała, goryczka świetnie współgra z karmelowością. Piwo gładkie, bardzo pijalne i jedne z niewielu takich gdzie aromat jest tak samo dobry jak smak. Nie spotkałem jeszcze takiego polskiego piwa które dorównałoby tym podobnym ze Szkocji jak i z Danii. Problemem jest to że żadne z polskich jakie próbowałem nie jest na tyle przyjemnie słodkie i goryczkowe. To jest. Pite po raz trzeci - po raz trzeci doskonałe.

huineman (564) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2016
33 cl bottle served in frozen stem bowl. Pours hazy deep bronze, off-white head. Aroma is very intense: first conifer scents (cypress, pine needles), then citrus (pomelo, grapefruit, lemon). Round, balanced, fresh. High carb. Very long finish with great big bitterness. Quite nice, indeed.

330ml can. Clear pale golden colour with a small white head. Super hoppy aroma, loads of grapefruit, pine resin, caramel malt. Loads of citrus and grapefruit in the flavour too, very bitter hops, lingering finish. Quality IPA.
