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.

Draught @ Kaisla, Helsinki

Pours clear copper colored with a tiny head. Aroma of floral hops, grass, caramely malts and sweet toffee. Taste is sweet and malty with a lot of caramely toffee, floral hops, grass and hints of fruits. Finish has a lot of floral hops, bitterness, grassy notes and sticky malty caramel. Okay, quite sweet and malty IPA.

Flaska Bishops örebro. Orange kulör. Kraftfull och trevlig tropisk humledoft. Mango, passionsfrukt, ananas, apelsin och tallbarr. Dessa frukter återfinns i smak toppat med en fin och stark beska. Jämnheten i denna öl är fantastiskt. Känns aldrig trött på något sätt. Därav en stadig favorit

Great tasting brew - one of the best from Brewdog. Strong, bitter with citrus and very slight fruity notes. Highly recommend

Keogh (41) - Świebodzice, POLAND - FEB 28, 2015
Barwa bursztynowa, w butelce jakieś farfocle których ciężko nie nalać, piana drobno i średniopęchrzykowa, średnio trwała. W aromacie cytrusy (grejpfruty) i owoce tropikalne. W smaku grejpfrut, średnia słodycz, spora goryczka (przyjemna, fajnie sie rozchodzi) - ale nie aż taka jak zapowiadają w opisie ;). Piwo oleiste, bardzo pijalne, wysycenie niskie. Całkiem udane piwo, tylko te farfocle....

heman (128) - Tychy, POLAND - FEB 25, 2015
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!

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 (340) - 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 (252) - 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.
