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, dont say we didnt warn you
Ingredients: Extra Pale malt, Centennial & Columbus hops, dry hopped to 200+ theoretical IBUs with Citra, Amarillo and Simcoe.

On tap @ brewdog Birmingham. Probably my favourite brewdog beer, possibly! Tropical power hits the ode straight away, big big bitter hit on he gob followed by some really nice fruits and a bit of toasted sugar too. This is one tasty beer. Went down well with my toasted cheese sarnie, which by the way was also awesome. Great sarnie, great beer, whats not to like!! Good times.

Un EBU plus de 200...on sattend une bire Rockn Roll. Pour cela Brewdog nous a intgr du Simcoe, du Citra et du Columbus pour lamertume et de lAmarillo et du Centennial pour les armes. Mais finalement, si lamertume devient trs intense sur le final, le travail sur le malt la rend moins amre que lHardcore IPA de la mme brasserie. En verre nous sommes sur un blond dor voil (EBC aux environs de 20) avec une mousse blanche trs peu dveloppe ne nappant pas la surface (faible effervescence, visuel pas exceptionnel). Splendide nez la fois rond et rac, sur les fruits de la passion, le pamplemousse, le citron et une pointe de rsineux. Lattaque est sur un bon quilibre, malt/houblon sur une amertume saillante mais contenue en intensit de par la bonne prsence malte. Ce sont alors les armes de fruits de la passion et dagrumes qui font le plus remarquer. Nous retrouvons dailleurs ces armes en deuxime bouche avec nanmoins lamertume prenant lgrement lascendant. Larrire bouche reprend quant elle la structure de lattaque sur le mme quilibre. La texture a de fait des tendances veloutes, trs intressantes et agrables. La troisime bouche devient mme plus suave, confrant un peu plus dampleur en bouche sur des armes de mangue et de fruits exotiques. Ce nest donc que sur le final que lamertume gagnera franchement en intensit, saillante, fine et prcise et restant longtemps en bouche. Lutilisation de dry hopping en Citra, Amarillo et Simcoe confre dailleurs des notes beaucoup plus herbaces. Rien dire sur lalcool 7,2 % Abv permettant un bon quilibre et sur le sucre parfaitement dos. En conclusion, pour apprcier cette bire il faut naturellement apprcier lamertume, mais autant lHardcore IPA, bire extrme, en est dsquilibre, autant cette Jack Hammer jouit dune bel quilibre et seul une petite complexit supplmentaire notamment sur la premire partie de dgustation lui fait rellement dfaut.

Piwo złote, zmętnione. Piany właściwie brak, mimo wysokiego wysycenia. W aromacie las i ziołowość. W smaku grapefruitowa i ziołowa goryczka, wysoka i zalegająca. Pełnia w kierunku wytrawności.

Deja un agradable regusto en el paladar pero al entrar en boca me resulta demasiado amarga

GhostS (295) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 16, 2017
Aroma - intense, very IPA-ish, with lot of herbal hops and green herbs, some unripe yellow fruits and pine notes. Taste - absolutely bitter, intense, quite a bit aggressive, with stable intensity even in aftertaste, only herbal hops and nothing else, but very good! A very bitter beer, better to say a very pleasant bitter beer.

kaserov (595) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 16, 2017
Color entre amarillo y naranja, medianamente turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (retencin decente). Carbonatacin media. Textura oleosa y ligeramente efervescente. Aroma increble a resina, lpulo, naranja, pomelo, mango, fruta de la pasin. Sabor frutal (naranja, fruta de la pasin, mango, pomelo, pia), con base mnima de malta caramelizada y final de amargor no muy elevado que va hacindose ms presente a medida que se va bebiendo. Seca. El amargor contina en postgusto junto con resina. Lupulada al mximo y riqusima. De lata, a tres meses de caducar. Dira que aguanta ms que bien.

SilkTork (5712) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2017
Small bottle, filtered, from a supermarket. Malt is actually a little sweeter and more caramel tasting than normal, and can actually be detected through the hops. Theres hope yet that these boys will actually get interested in brewing beer I like. Hoppy, but, surprisingly, not aggressive.

Bjcp aro 10, wygląd 2, smak 16, usta 4 oglnie 8 W Zapachu cytrusy dają ostro po nosie, trochę żywicy. W smaku żywica i iglaki, jak gardło przywyknie do goryczki wychodzą grejfruty i cytrusy. Goryczka trawiasta, potężna, ale krtka i nie zalega. Całościowo świetnie
