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

On-Tap at Brewdog Aberdeen (Schooner):
Lychee and bitter hops to begin with some pine and citrus along with a bit of grapefruit making up most of the rest. There is a solid IPA aroma to this one with a fruity smell in the background.
Light amber with a clear body and a thin, foamy white head on top that is more of a lacing.
Dark fruits and bitter hops to begin and a helping of grapefruit and pine too. There is some strong bitter notes and and touch of sweet malts as well as some tropical flavouring.
Bitter with a medium body and moderate carbonation. There is a nice citrus tang and a slightly dry finish.

A nice, very bitter IPA that had some good fruit notes and a strong, hoppy taste. This one would fall somewhere in between Brewdogs Punk IPA and their Hardcore IPA in both style and taste.

Veel pompelmoes in het aroma. In de smaak citrus, zware hop, veel bitter. De afdronk is bitter. Niet echt mijn stijl.

Fidzer (5) - Koobrzeg, POLAND - MAR 10, 2017 does not count
Bardzo solidna ipa, piwo dobrze się prezentuje, jest klarowne, a barwa słomkowa. W zapachu sporo przyjemnego grejpfruta i ananasa. W smaku wystarczająco pełne i wytrawne, grejpfrut dalej wyczuwalny, ananas trochę zanika. Goryczka bardzo konkretna, przy czym zupełnie nie zalegająca, jest cytrusowa i żywiczna, a dzięki temu piwo staje się bardzo pijalne.

Can from premier store, Farsley, Leeds. Intensely fruity aroma. Packs a punch at first drink. Then bitter but lots of fruit. I enjoyed this.

Bottle. Clear yellow golden with a creamy white head. Aroma of fresh hops with pine needles and grapefruit in the nose. Light malty sweetness, piney and citrusy flavors, strong bitterness, finish is dry but balanced. Medium bodied, long finish. Very good.

MatKarol (42) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 6, 2017
złote czyste, z ładną pianą, w aromacie cytrusowa bomba z delikatną żywicą. W smaku solidna goryczka, lecz nie meczy wcale. Pijalne niesamowicie i zdradliwe.

LiwkoLiwko (195) - POLAND - MAR 4, 2017
Złociste jak koncernowe lagery. Klarowne. Piana stredniopęcherzykowa. Niezbyt trwała. Intensywny cytrusowy aromat. Na pierwszym planie grejpfrut. W tle cytryna i owoce tropikalne. Średnia goryczka grejpfrutowa, brak słodkości w smaku charakterystycznej dla większości polskich IP.
