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

Great hop aroma. Pours nicely with a small white head but kind of hazy body. Well balanced taste between hop and bitterness but I would like to see it a bit stronger to fulfill the body.

fantti (888) - FINLAND - MAY 24, 2016
Tölkki @ Alko. Kaatuu tulppaaniin kullankeltaisena ja sameana, noin kahden sormen paksuisella saippuamaisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu on hieman pihkaisen puolelle taipuvaa sitruksista tykitystä, hivenen karheaa keksimäistä mallasta ja ruohoa. Maku on hyvin sitruksinen ja kukkainen humalapuolelta, keksimäinen mallas komppaa hyvin ja tukee humalointia hyvin. Hieman hedelmäistä makeuttakin on joukossa. Suutuntuma on melko katkera ja loppua kohden hyvin kuivattava, lievää makeutta on havaittavissa, muttei karamellista vaan hedelmäistä. Hyvin tehty, melko suoraviivainen IPA, jossa humalointi pääsee oikeuksiinsa mallasrungon ollessa juuri sopiva kannattelemaan.

drjoeng (651) - SINGAPORE - MAY 21, 2016
7.6%ABV. IPA. Tapped out gold. 8ºSRM. Nose is predominantly spicy with fresh chilies, cilantro, wild onions and damp funky hemp-like aroma. Mouthfeel is soapy. The palate is immediately sweet like corn syrup and pale malt. Hops are aggressive and resinous, vegetal, spicy with bitter melon, cilantro, mint and Thai basil. Finish is medium long with a tanin-like stickiness. Blooms into something floral as you let the palate linger. Goes on Favorites List !

AssKicker (149) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - MAY 16, 2016
Bue à la pression chez Brewdog Barcelone. Belle couleur orangée, mousse moyenne. Odeur houblonnée, mais de manière peu commune. Arômes portées sur l’herbacé et le retour résineux... mais surtout la poudre à canon... vraiment spécial, faut aimer... Amertume pas mal prononcée, bière relativement sèche, très bonne longueur en bouche. Pas trop fan néanmoins.

buddybutch (14) - Nantes, FRANCE - MAY 15, 2016
1st class IPA. Extrem bitterness, very very long lasting on tongue (as you could expect in a 250IBU beer). Almost no head. Orange and citrus aroma. Very sweet taste, low alcoholic feel.

De la cervecera artesanal escocesa Brew Dog(UK) esta "Jack Hammer" una lupuladisima American IPA de 7.2% ABV y sorprendentes 250 IBU’s, para ser mas grafico una cerveza masiva como la "Corona" tiene 19 IBU’s de amargor, lo que conlleva una elaboración mas cuidadosa para equilibrar el lúpulo. En apariencia es una cerveza de una corona de espuma ligeramente medina, de burbuja compacta muy apretada, color blanco cristalino, de retención duradera y carbonatación baja, su color siguiendo las tendencias de las IPA"s pajizas, con algo de turbiedad y ya un cuerpo pleno como debe ser para estas cervezas de excéntrico amargor. El aroma ya es muy agresivo y se siente como imperan lúpulos americanos en su mayoría produciendo olores cítricos, cascara de toronja, naranja, mandarina, de las maltas solo se distingue el dulzor, ligero caramelo, volviendo al lúpulo un dejo herbal al final. Ya en el paladar es realmente de carácter rustico como lo indica el slogan de la etiqueta, los lúpulos nos dan un fuerte sabor a toronja, cascara de naranja, naranja, muchos cítricos y aunque tiene un buen equilibrio con el dulzor de la malta si es incisivo el balance hacia el amargor, es tomable a pesar de lo que se podría pensar pero no muestra mayor complejidad que la saturación de los lúpulos, no niego que es rica y en lo personal me agrada solo que viniendo de Brew Dog esperaba una IPA mas rica y complicada.
