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…

DeliriumT (382) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 28, 2015
Pours cloudy copper with loads of sediment. Aroma is a hop punch. Deliciously citrusy, deliciously dank, deliciously sticky. The flavour and palate is somewhat of a letdown. The bitterness is too harsh to allow all of the delicious flavours through. It dominates the palate. Still a great beer, just a little too heavy on the steely bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GlasgowTAD (588) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JUL 22, 2015
Pours a clear golden yellow with a white head which recedes to about a half-finger depth. Aroma is a cocktail of mango, grapefruit and pineapple. Taste is an assault of hop resin, pine, grapefruit and a hint of caramel.
