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 revelling in the mediocre, raising hell and reaping the commercial rewards, 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…
Ingredients: Extra Pale malt, Centennial & Columbus hops, dry hopped to 200+ theoretical IBUs with Citra, Amarillo and Simcoe.

amodernraccon (3) - MOLDOVA - JUN 17, 2017 does not count
Strong hoppy aroma. Small and weak foam. Taste.... this a quintessence of bitterness and hoppyness itself.

An incredibly bitter and hoppy IPA. It’s not particularly nuanaced and not overly drinkable. I find a lot of BrewDog’s stronger beers to be a bit rich and this is no different. The aftertaste is quite sickly.

vinivini (2582) - Gomel, BELARUS - JUN 11, 2017
33cl bottle. Clear golden ale with moderate bubble white head that stays quite for long. Strong aroma of grapefruit and other citrus fruit. Passion fruit as well. Light to medium body. The dry taste sarts with juicy fruitiness. After that big grapefruity bitterness steps in. Heavy bitter yet no harshness. High drinkability. Very good even when a little outmoded.

colui72 (1057) - HONG KONG - JUN 10, 2017
Going back to this beer after a couple of years: it pours clear golden, with a medium white head and some spotty lacing. All hops aroma of grapefruit with notes of resin and tropical fruits. Hop dominated taste too, very bitter, with grapefruit, resin, pine, mango and passion fruit. Medium body, creamy, average carbonation, heavily bitter finish. If you don’t like bitter ales stay away, awesome for me!

DrNosha (2407) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2017
0,33l Flasche in Venedig. Strohgelbes Bier. Der weisse Schaum ist sehr luftig. Optisch irgendwie seltsam. Dafür haut der Duft richtig rein. Überreifes tropisches Obst. Guave, Mango, Ananas. Antrunk Citrus herb. Leichte Säure. Pinie, fast etwas salzig. Dazu der tropische Obstsalat. Sehr lecker. Langes bitteres Finish.

explosivedog (1295) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 3, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours bright gold with a good head. Grapefruit peel, grapefruit juice, orange, lemon peel, touch of pine, touch of caramel. This is all bitter, no balance, and all the better for it. Yum.

3.5
IslandHaole (1274) - Misawa, JAPAN - JUN 1, 2017
Deep golden, bordering on near orange in color with a smallish white head. Tons of hops in the nose, tangerine peel and pine tar with cantaloupe sweetness mixed in for good measure. Bracing, the hops go medieval on your palate, theres not enough tea in China to counterbalance these hops. Jack Hammer is an apropos name, the bitterness drills your tastebuds. Not bad for a good hophead brew but lacks finesse and balance to put it up in the great category.

3.4
DonGregorio (440) - POLAND - MAY 28, 2017
Bottle. Clear orange colour, small white head. Aroma of pine, herbs, light citrus. Taste is dry, medium to heavy bitter, light citrus, grapefruit, peach, herbs, pine needles. Long bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Very hoppy and bitter, solid IPA.
