COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The devastatingly bitter finish will drill straight through your taste buds. If you like hops and bitterness then go ahead. But be warned: this beer has more bitterness than a human palate (or nipple) can detect. For freaks, craft beer junkies and stamp collectors only.

The second placed beer in our 2012 Prototype Challenge is a BrewDog staff favourite, and made a brief guest appearance in our bars last summer.

Piwo jasne, wytrawne. Potężna dawka goryczki, z posmakami trawiastymi i tytoniowymi.

Loads of hopps (grapefruit). Strong @ 7.2%. Best thing is, it’s local brewery to us! Fine Ale!

StevieT (809) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2015
From a bottle. Huge grapefruit aroma and flavours, a great example of the style. Not for the faint of heart, as you would guess from the name.

cj_a (15) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 20, 2015
Clear golden with a white head. Passion fruit, mango, blood orange, a bit citrussy. Lightly carbonated, a bit slick, full body. Bit sweet at the beginning, fruity hoppy bitterness getting a bit dry. Long finish.

La JackHammer è una Double IPA con uno spiccato IBU (100) che domina la sua degustazione. Dal colore ambrato, al naso presenta note tropicali ed erbace. Al palato l’approccio è maltoso e resinoso ma subito dominato dal finale amaro netto e pulito. Il finale è erbaceo e molto persistente. Chi ama le birre con un finale ’schietto e deciso’ dovrebbe provarla!

Franksv6 (336) - Tiel, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2015
Clear amber colored beer with a white head, medium carbonation. Smells fruity and hoppy. Taste is fruity orange, much bitter hops, citrus and grapefruit. Good IPA.

Fashawn (251) - Montesarchio, ITALY - FEB 9, 2015
Una delle migliori tra le classiche brewdog, molto dolce all’inizio con un bel finale al luppolo secco e lungo. C’è equilibrio e tanti agrumi, anche arancio, frutta dolce e poi resina ed erba sul finsle. Poco carbonata e saporitissima.

Thanks to Rian for sharing! Nice floral, fresh, very nice floral hops, but way too sweetish due to the 7.4%. Sweetish aftertaste with nice floral hops, not too bitter, sweetish aftertaste.

Pours a clear yellow orange with very light yellow head. The smell is cat urine, citrus, some malt sweetness. The taste is light malt sweetness, crisp citrus ending crisp, a bit bitter and dry. Light+ body with fine active carbonation.
