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…

Fresh and hoppy. It smells like christmas tree and tastes like grapefruit. It’s taste is bitter, but somehow sweet bitter. Just what I want from IPA.

NosirIwont (2161) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2015
Bottle. 7.2%. Best before 26.06.16. Pours a slightly hazy, bit pale yellow, with an off-white head. Good lacing. Sweetish hop aroma; blend of pine, grapefruit, mango, resin and (overripe) fruits. Flavour is sweetish, fruity and spicy hops with a nice, high bitterness. More bitterness in the finish, a wee bit tart, fruity and with a hint of liquorice. Lingering mild alcohol burn. Overall good; well-made and well-balanced. 02.10.15.

fredfa (125) - belo horizonte, BRAZIL - SEP 28, 2015
Para lupomaníacos. Amargor forte do começo ao final do gole. Alcóol bem inserido no conjunto. Senti falta de um pouco mais de malte para equilibrar.

bartlebier (2769) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 27, 2015
33cl can bb08/2016, Geers. Thinner than anticipated, yet typical lean Brewdog pour. Massive dankness in aroma: concentrated lime pith and wet bark meets a near-vegetal quality, resins pushed forth into a synthetic dimension even, abv lining. Nice and friendly pine concentrate considering the doses, remaining approachable: citrus pith, resinous synthetics, bark. Medium long bitter finish. Thin, measured thin malt sustenance. PoMo and "terminal" stage HQ craft engineering indeed, managing to marry drinkability and a post-pubescent urge to shock & awe.
