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

dnicolaescu (2139) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 1, 2016
CAN 33 CL. Clear golden, soapy white head. Aroma has a tiny bit of citrus and lots of piney resins. Taste: starts with light sweet grapefruit and pale malts, soon overwhelmed by a huge piney and pithy bitterness. A bit old school, but I still like this kind of IPAs.

Antzrhere (96) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours hazy yellow with white head, good carbonation. Good aroma of grapefruit and pineapple. Taste of grapefruit, resinous hop, grass and slight caramel. End taste is clean bitter, dry spicy cracker bread and slight pepper. A more traditional styled american IPA that would work well with a spicy meal like a curry.

sulawang (1070) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2016
Visual: Pours marmalade orange with large suspended bits, a very small dissipating head, thin ringed retention with spotty islands, slow sporadic streams. Nose: super bright orange-grapefruit hop oils (lvl-6)-pungency Attack: thicker-crisp bite Mid-palate: orange-mango hop oils, controlled zingy alcohol detection, (lvl-6-sweetness), yellow grapefruit, grassy-green hop cones Finish: tongue numbness, toasty toffee barley malt aftertaste, long bitter hopped finish Summary: A really, really nice showcase of a quality IPA. Balanced sweet grapefruity malts with a superb smooth-thick mouthfeel, and the hops are bold yet never overbearing. I particularly like the re-emergence of the barley malt at the finish. Very round and profound. Recommended.

Bottle ar pub. Pours hazy honey color with small white head. Aroma is hoppy citrus. Taste is fresh and bitter grapefruit, subtle malts. Palate is acidic with strong carbonation. Smoother in the end. Pretty nice.

malushky (104) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2016
330 ml bottle from Wanstead Tap. Pours hazy golden with a short-lived white head. Hoppy aroma of citrus, blood orange, some peach and loads of hops. Taste starts fruity, ripe orange and quickly gives away to big hoppy bitterness. Average carbonation, long finish, surprisingly drinkable with all the 200 IBUs. Very good.
