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…

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.

5/20 Off the scale bitterness. Barely drinkable. Smooth. Grapefruit taste to start before the biterness takes over. 7.2% ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rafax (95) - POLAND - AUG 29, 2016
On tap @BrewDog pub. Yellow to copper, little bit hazy with rather small head. Strong grapefruit aroma with some tropical fruits behind. Strong, little bit ashy bitterness already from the first sip. Light body, well carbonated with long and strong bitterness finish. Well done!

skortila (5240) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2016
On tap. The aroma has grapefruit, tropical fruit. Bit hazy, copper coloured beer with a medium head. The taste is moderate bitter with citrus, tropical fruits, biscuits. Medium bodied beer. Nice.

Szopeen (304) - Toruń, POLAND - AUG 19, 2016
Jasno żółte, praktycznie klarowne, piana bez szału. Z początku aromat niezbyt intensywny, odrobinę cytrusowy, po ogrzaniu wyszły winogrona. W smaku raczej wytrawne, goryczka w miarę wysoka. Ogólnie bez szału.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2016 Color dorado claro con capa de espuma de un dedo de grosor. Carbonatación a tope (muy presente en boca también). Aroma brutal, a lúpulos y fruta, super intenso. En boca es distinta, primero un sabor frutal, después amargor que va in crescendo. El amargor que deja en boca entre trago y trago es algo típico, aunque también he de decir que me esperaba algo imposible de beber (debido a los, en teoría, 200 IBUs) y ha sido todo lo contrario. No creo que llegue ni a 100 IBUs reales. Muy recomendable y más sabrosa que la Hardcore IPA (en la cual está peor disimulado el alcohol, dicho sea de paso).

Olorin (5) - Graz, AUSTRIA - AUG 2, 2016 does not count
330 ml bottle. Clear golden colour with a small but long lasting white head, soft carbonation. Grapefruity and hoppy nose, full mouthfeel, sweaty, strong and incredibly long lasting bitterness in the aftertaste. Except the bitterness no outstanding IPA, it’s rather an experiment how much IBUs you can stand.

Fules (732) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 26, 2016
Kicsi, de tartós hab, szűretlen, világos borostyán szín. Illata intenzív, citrusos, gyantás. Citrusok, fenyők, déligyümölcsök tombolnak az ízében, rendkívül mozgalmas. Közepes szénsavval, nagy testtel, kiváló egyensúllyal rendelkező sör.
