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

Maersk (17) - MOLDOVA - FEB 13, 2016
On tap in Brewdog Soho. Smells like cut grass, herbs and grapefruit. All in one. Pours clear and pale with almost no head. A blast of flavor. Perfectly balanced beer.

kafarion (242) - POLAND - FEB 12, 2016
Aromat słodki, cytrusowy, kwiatowy, grejpfrut, słodki pomarańcz, landrynki. Kolor jasno pomarańczowy, opalizujący, piana niska, ładnie zdobi szkło. Smak ziołowy, cytrusowy, trawa cytrynowa, limonka, goryczka średnia. Piwo dobrze wysycone, rozgrzewanie w przełyku od alkoholu, długi finisz, całkiem pijalne. Ogólnie super balans między smakiem i aromatem, porządnie zrobione piwo, bez niedociągnięć, mega cytrusowe - jeśli ktoś lubi takie nuty, będzie zachwycony. Jedyne czego można się czepić, to że nie czuć tych ponad 200 IBU. Polecam, piwo rewelacja, choć nie do końca mój smak.

Estebanik (461) - Lublin, POLAND - FEB 11, 2016
Piana opada bardzo szybko. W aromacie troche zielonego chmielu i niestety lekka kanaliza. Szkoda, bo w smaku to fajna, wytrawna, owocowa ipa z niezłą goryczka. Poprzednie warki zapamietalem znacznie lepiej.

Heidbummer (46) - SCOTLAND - FEB 11, 2016
The middle sibling between Punk and Hardcore. Pine resin on the nose. Bitter bitter bitter on the palate. Hop overload, in a good way. It’s lost some of its citrus and floral hit from original batches but it remains a stonking proper IPA.A bit more citrus and a little less soap and it would be higher in the IPA Pantheon.

cmacklin (576) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 11, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden with lots of sediment floating around and a small, short lived, white head that laces. Fruity aroma of grapefruit, tropical fruit, pine, resin and caramel malt. Sweet flavour of peach, mango, grapefruit, caramel malt, pine, grass and resin with a dry, bitter, astringent, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Well done. Nice pucker power.

ArtificialCyst (230) - Szczecin, POLAND - FEB 9, 2016
Aroma: Grapefruit, some mangos, resin, clear hoppiness. Appearance: Nice white dense head with lacing, pale color. Taste: Very light, very bitter but the bitterness is very quick, lingers just a little bit, grapefruity, peachy. Palate: Carbonation medium-high, body medium-low, finish is dry.

Boa Ipa, entre as top 3, aroma citrico, alcool bem inserido, equilibrado, final seco e amaegor moderado. Muito boa IPA

SkillsFactory (372) - ITALY - FEB 2, 2016
Tra il dorato e l'arancio, opalescente, schiuma bianca di buona persistenza. Aroma di passion fruit, ananas, mango e pompelmo, zucchero candito, floreale ed agrumata. Al palato stesse note di frutti tropicali e zucchero con un finale dove prevale un amaro agrumato che ricorda il pompelmo. Corpo medio, mediamente carbonata, texture leggermente acquosa.
