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

DomPiwa (85) - FRANCE - SEP 3, 2016
Poured from a 330ml bottle. Golden with lively head. Aroma of citrus/grapefruit. Taste of highly concentrated hops with heavy bitter finish. Am not sure if possible to drink these all night but one, down by the river, on a sunny afternoon, under a shady tree, is a pleasant experience!

5/20 Off the scale bitterness. Barely drinkable. Smooth. Grapefruit taste to start before the biterness takes over. 7.2% ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rafax (202) - POLAND - AUG 29, 2016
On tap @BrewDog pub. Yellow to copper, little bit hazy with rather small head. Strong grapefruit aroma with some tropical fruits behind. Strong, little bit ashy bitterness already from the first sip. Light body, well carbonated with long and strong bitterness finish. Well done!

Pub. Piana ma?a. Aromat cytrusowy, chmielowy. Goryczka ?rednia. W smaku wytrawne. Spoko piwo.

Szopeen (443) - POLAND - AUG 19, 2016
Jasno żłte, praktycznie klarowne, piana bez szału. Z początku aromat niezbyt intensywny, odrobinę cytrusowy, po ogrzaniu wyszły winogrona. W smaku raczej wytrawne, goryczka w miarę wysoka. Oglnie bez szału.

kaserov (429) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 6, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2016 Color dorado claro con capa de espuma de un dedo de grosor. Carbonatacin a tope (muy presente en boca tambin). Aroma brutal, a lpulos y fruta, super intenso. En boca es distinta, primero un sabor frutal, despus amargor que va in crescendo. El amargor que deja en boca entre trago y trago es algo tpico, aunque tambin he de decir que me esperaba algo imposible de beber (debido a los, en teora, 200 IBUs) y ha sido todo lo contrario. No creo que llegue ni a 100 IBUs reales. Muy recomendable y ms sabrosa que la Hardcore IPA (en la cual est peor disimulado el alcohol, dicho sea de paso).

Olorin (24) - Graz, AUSTRIA - AUG 2, 2016
330 ml bottle. Clear golden colour with a small but long lasting white head, soft carbonation. Grapefruity and hoppy nose, full mouthfeel, sweaty, strong and incredibly long lasting bitterness in the aftertaste. Except the bitterness no outstanding IPA, its rather an experiment how much IBUs you can stand.
