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

Pours clear light golden with good white head that diminishes quite quickly. Aromas of grapefruit, tropical fruit, lime zest and hint of pine. Good carbonation and medium mouth feel. Taste is grapefruit, lime, orange zest and hint of malt. Dry, very bitter finish.

KikoDucky (179) - Trenčn, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 23, 2016
Aroma of grapefruit, lightly honey and bitterness. Colour is clasic pale, white short standing foam. Taste starting with lightly bitter, at the middle there is citrus flavours, and nice strong grapefruit-bitter and alcohol finnish.

Bottle. Pours thin head that quickly disappears. Clear appearance, almost like a pilsner. Aroma is fresh with a very significant scent of a well known flower that I cant specify. Taste is just as fresh but also bitter. Reminds me of the same limefruit-flower. Very delightful beer. One more please.

VueltaBirrista (94) - Murcia, SPAIN - OCT 19, 2016
De color plido, un poco turbia y espuma discreta, como suele ser habitual en este tipo de cerveza. Nada ms aspirarla la hierba, los ctricos y frutas maduras como melocotn te pegan un golpe considerable. En boca me encant. Entra amarga no os lo voy a negar, pero siempre est presente un cierto toque afrutado y los ctricos en el post gusto. El final es bastante seco. De chasquear la lengua

Echon (494) - rhus, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2016
Straw coloured. Powerful hoppy aroma with notes of citrus, grape and some spice. Rich hoppy flavour but no real malt character. Light sweetness with a very bitter finish. Full body. Overall, a good IPA. Great hop profile but I still would prefer some malt flavour.

DraftDodger (1354) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2016
Copenhagen 16/10 2016. 33 cl bottle from Fakta. Usual ubercool label design in green with the howling brewdog. Pours clear yellow with white head. Settles quickly as thin patchy layer of foam. Rich aroma dominated by bittersour grape fruit, lemon and citrus. Sweet exotic fruit in the background. Fills the room the moment you pour it. Fairly strong carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor has light sweetness followed by strong bitterness. Bitter aftertaste and dry finish. Perfect if you like it dry and bitter. The name "Jack Hammer seems to make sense.
