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, dont say we didnt warn you

OG: 1069
IBUs: Hopped to 200+ theoretical IBUs
Malts: Extra Pale
Hops: Centennial & Columbus, dry hopped with Citra, Amarillo and Simcoe

A british, golden, light foggy IPA with low, white head. Aroma is hops, malt, light citrus. Taste is very bitter.

rodsquad (115) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - FEB 20, 2017
Bottle from Tesco. Pours yellow gold with a slight haze and a bubbly off-white head (which quickly bubbles away). Aroma is an overwhelming big citrus hit of grapefruit. There is a little pepper, pine resin with a sweetening peach. Flavours follow nose with the grapefruit sting and peppery dryness with soft peach sweetening the experience. It has a light body with moderate carbonation and a slightly oily finish on the lips. The full bitter citrus hop blast has enough sweet soft fruit flavours to pull it back from the puckering brink.

bjorn77 (57) - Krakw, POLAND - FEB 18, 2017
Złociste, klarowne, pianka szybko zanikająca. Intensywny cytrusowy aromat. W smaku bardzo duża cytrusowa gorycz. Naprawdę potężna goryczka ale nie nieprzyjemna i w dodatku łagodzona bardzo przyjemną lekką słodyczą owocową pochodzącą od słodu. Bardzo wytrawne i orzeźwiające

zaax1 (9) - Wrocław, POLAND - FEB 11, 2017 does not count
Piwo barwy słomkowej, klarowne. Piana średnio obfita, zostaje na szkle. Świetny aromat cytrusowy, bardzo intensywny. W smaku wytrawne z obfitą chmielową goryczką (duh). Przyjemna, intensywna, ale niezalegająca. O dziwo bardzo pijalne. Oglnie świetna ipa.

Wallenrod (16) - - FEB 8, 2017
Aromatyczne, cytrusowe, głwnie grejpfruty. Kolor złocisty, jasny, z przyzwoitą pianą. W smaku głwnie grejpfrut, dobry poziom goryczki, ale te 200+ IBU w opisie to chwyt marketingowy, dałbym około 60-70. Tak czy inaczej, przy tej ilości bardzo pijalne, nic nie ściąga na podniebieniu, rześkie. Bardzo zacne piwo.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2017 Bitter!!! But without it being simply all the beer has to offer. Still great flavour from hops: pine and grapefruit mainly. Its the big bad brother of Brewdogs PUNK IPA. Definitely targeted at fans of the bitterness. Absolutely an astonishing beer! (unfortunately a costly CHF 4.40 per 33cl bottle at Manor Food in Baden - but still worth it)
