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 revelling in the mediocre, raising hell and reaping the commercial rewards, 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, don’t say we didn’t warn you…
Ingredients: Extra Pale malt, Centennial & Columbus hops, dry hopped to 200+ theoretical IBUs 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.

Drago7 (729) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 16, 2017
Zapach: słodkie tropiki i cytrusy i 'gryząca' sosna. Smak: cytrusy i zioła. Grejpfrut. Wytrawne. Pijalne. Długi finisz. Słodycz nie wyczuwalna. Być może finisz jest sosnowy, ale na pewno jest cierpki i inny niż grejpfrutowy. Bardzo smaczne, chce się pić. Czuć rozgrzanie w gardle od alkoholu.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2017 A tad too bitter with not enough fruit to balance it off. still a nice drink off the tap at Craft in Bangkok (Sukhumvit Soi 23)

Fles thuis geprobeerd met LiekevdV. Het is een licht troebel geel bier met een medium schuimkraag. Het heeft een hoppige geur. De smaak is hoppig, bitter en wat fruitig.

Wow, I this beer got me by surprise. I didn't expect it too be that good. It's sweet in a grain-honey way, but leaves a long-luved bitter mark on your tongue. Very easy to drink; I'd welcome it in a 0.5l bottle. Delicious beer.

deepdrinker (323) - Leeds, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2017 very hoppy , very bitter . A hint of fruit but overcome by the bitterness in the hops

mostro sacro schiaffi di luppolo in pieno naso, fiori frutti resina e erba appena tagliata grande birra

TaxiDriver (1847) - Stadland, GERMANY - NOV 12, 2017
A fruity smell, some citrus and a little bit sweet. The small white fizzy head has a normal duration, the body is pale yellow. A quite bitter taste, light fruity, the finish is long and bitter. The body is light, quite creamy with a normal carbonation.
