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

Salwal (468) - GERMANY - DEC 21, 2016
Bottle poured into Spiegelau IPA Glass. Pours clear yellow with low white head. Nose of citrus, some pine, resin, mango, pale malts. Taste is mainly pine embedded in a solid bitter body while the 200 IBU come more or less restrained. Herbal to bitter citric finish... Good

This one has a unique aroma, featuring what Im going to call a boatload of durian, plus notes of grapefruit, lemon, resin and honey. Its an onslaught of grapefruit in the mouth, plus some spearmint, caramel and honey. It hides its alcohol very well and is a crazy good drink.

bonkiedeaap (721) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2016
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel, Belgium. The beer is yellow to golden colored and has a nice white head, with average carbonation. The aroma is malty and very fruity, with a lot of grapefruits, grass, citrus, tropical fruits and some spices. The taste is light sweet and fruity, with notes of caramel and notes from the aroma. Very intense bitterness in the end and also very dry. Yet very refreshing and well balanced with the sweetness. Enjoyed it.

Piwo koloru złotego, prawie bez piany, lekko mętne. W aromacie grejpfrut, słodkie owoce tropikalne, nuty kwiatowe. W smaku wysoka goryczka. Alkohol lekko wyczuwalny, jednak nie przeszkadza. Goryczka kontrowana jest owocowo-kwiatową słodyczą. Piwo bardzo dobre, choć nie wybitne.

heavy (2808) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 5, 2016
Aug. 16. A 0.33 l bottle that poured almost clear yellow body with a small head. Aroma of tropical fruits, pine and sweeter lemon hops passing smoothly to candy and biscuit. Flavor was bitter of course but actually not that much as one would expect from 200 IBU. Grapefruit hops were dominating, along with grass and pine, with weak malt counterpart - light biscuit and caramel. Still, it managed to leave impression of a full bodied IPA. Finish was long, similar to flavor yet a bit more spicy (black pepper). A nice IPA, expected some ugly bitterness but it turned out pretty good and not that ruthless at all.

AntonyWilson (292) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 2, 2016
330ml Can: Pours a hazy golden with white head that dissipates. Lacing. Aroma of pine and citrus orange/mandarin. Grassy flavour with a resinous after taste. Malt is subdued by the dry hopping. Bitterness is big but not over the top. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Finishes surprisingly dryer than expected. Overall to much dry hopping as it ends up tasting of cut grass.
