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.

Bottle from Damian Beer and Ale. Pours clear yellow with little white head. Nice aroma of citruses mainly grapefruit. Great rich taste, full of citruses, flowers, very bitter, nice long bitter finish. Great IPA.

Bijl (600) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2017
Goudgeel, witte schuimkraag, helder, veel koolzuur. Aroma: Zeer veel hop, fruitig, pijnboom/hars, karamel zoete mouten. Smaak: Bij slok 1 al de volle harsige bitter... grassig, pijnboom, netelig. Daarna de fruitige tonen van Citrus, grapefruit, mango, passievrucht.  Maar bij deze is toch echt de focus op die venijnige bitter. Veel zoete karamel mouten en een beetje citroen en grapefruit schil bite. Ik hou hiervan! Medium body, netelig en prikkelig mondgevoel maar ook weer wat romig. Afdronk is bitter en droog met fruitige hinten. Mooi lang ook. Ik vind hem top!

amodernraccon (2) - MOLDOVA - JUN 17, 2017 does not count
Strong hoppy aroma. Small and weak foam. Taste.... this a quintessence of bitterness and hoppyness itself.

An incredibly bitter and hoppy IPA. It’s not particularly nuanaced and not overly drinkable. I find a lot of BrewDog’s stronger beers to be a bit rich and this is no different. The aftertaste is quite sickly.

vinivini (2233) - Gomel, BELARUS - JUN 11, 2017
33cl bottle. Clear golden ale with moderate bubble white head that stays quite for long. Strong aroma of grapefruit and other citrus fruit. Passion fruit as well. Light to medium body. The dry taste sarts with juicy fruitiness. After that big grapefruity bitterness steps in. Heavy bitter yet no harshness. High drinkability. Very good even when a little outmoded.

colui72 (985) - HONG KONG - JUN 10, 2017
Going back to this beer after a couple of years: it pours clear golden, with a medium white head and some spotty lacing. All hops aroma of grapefruit with notes of resin and tropical fruits. Hop dominated taste too, very bitter, with grapefruit, resin, pine, mango and passion fruit. Medium body, creamy, average carbonation, heavily bitter finish. If you don’t like bitter ales stay away, awesome for me!

JaKeAFC (1121) - ITALY - JUN 6, 2017
On yap at beaches brew fest. Golden color average? head. Aroma of resin hops, pale malts, resin, pine, grapefruit, passion fruit, tropical fruit. Full body, averag e carb, long bitter finish. Very good

peponi (1842) - Hannover, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2017
Aroma: yellow citrus notes, gooseberries, pine and resin. Appearance: golden color and white head. Taste: medium pine bitterness, yellow citrus notes, grapefruit, dry. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: decent IPA, nice citrus notes.

DrNosha (2287) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2017
0,33l Flasche in Venedig. Strohgelbes Bier. Der weisse Schaum ist sehr luftig. Optisch irgendwie seltsam. Dafür haut der Duft richtig rein. Überreifes tropisches Obst. Guave, Mango, Ananas. Antrunk Citrus herb. Leichte Säure. Pinie, fast etwas salzig. Dazu der tropische Obstsalat. Sehr lecker. Langes bitteres Finish.

explosivedog (1102) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 3, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours bright gold with a good head. Grapefruit peel, grapefruit juice, orange, lemon peel, touch of pine, touch of caramel. This is all bitter, no balance, and all the better for it. Yum.
