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.

Clear yellow / light orange, with some white head. Aroma is loaded with hops, really pleasant! Taste is some malt sweetness and medium bitterness. Finishes rather dry.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2017 Jack Daniels, Jack Nicholson, Jack Kerouac, Jack Sparrow, Jack Black, Jack Dee... it ain’t a guarantee of quality, but the odds have to be favourable! This little can from Asda had a lot to live up to. So, it poured a light, clear golden colour with a lacy white head. So far, so good. A mighty fruity aroma, hops, pine etc. Then the taste... surprisingly drinkable, Dead Pony Club tastes stronger! It is a very nice little IPA, not sure it’s ruthless but I guess I don’t know Jack!

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2017 tropical aroma. Intense bitterness with mango and pineapple. This is one serious IPA.

Marstonlad (940) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2017 Can from Alko, Helsinki. Pours fairly clear golden with a little white head. The aroma features mostly citrusy fruitiness with some grass and pine; hoppy, plenty of grapefruit. Taste is medium to heavily bitter, dry and hoppy. Flavours of grapefruit, zest and orange. The palate is medium-bodied, smooth and average in carbonation. Typical hoppy IPA: crisp and tasty but also a bit one-dimensional. Archetypal craft beer.

en rigtig fin humlet øl, med en del citrussmag. Rigtig fint med en øl der smager af noget.

Butelka 330ml. Złociste, niezmętnione, tworzy się trochę piany. Bardzo intensywny aromat chmielowo-owocowo-leśny. Jest mega! W ustach te same rzeczy, ale już z mniejszą intensywnością. Nie za wysoka, żywiczna goryczka. Mega pijalne, dobra IPA.

Mjollnir (414) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 3, 2017
Can. Pours hazy gold with a small, dense white head. Strong, fresh citrusy and tropical hop aroma with possibly a little bit of resin behind it, some sweet malt and maybe a little honey too. High and quite harsh bitterness, mild sweetness, some grapefruit and malt again but not a lot else going on in the flavour and not quite what the aroma promised. Medium body, soft and creamy carbonation with a long finish.

Tmoney99 (14863) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2017
Can. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that lasted with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bitter flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew.

equisetum (91) - Kielce, POLAND - SEP 26, 2017
Piwo jasno złote, zamglone, z ładną pianą. W aromacie cytrusy, odrobina kwiatowej słodyczy, nuty leśne. Piwo z jednej strony jest dość wytrawne, a z drugiej równoważone odrobiną słodowo-karmelowej słodyczy, czuć cytrusy, nuty ziołowe i leśne. Dobre piwo.

fernockibeer (197) - Wroclaw, POLAND - SEP 15, 2017
Kran w Viva la Pinta w Krakowie. Wygląd - jasno złoty kolor, lekko zamglone, z ładną, drobną pianą, ładny lacing. Aromat - ładne cytryny, trochę kwiatowości, lekko jakby ziemistości, całkiem fajnie. Smak - dość wytrawne, ale jest też trochę karmelu, jest dalej kwiatowość, iglaki, troszkę cytrusów, ciało średnie, nasycenie średnie, dość konkretna ziołowa goryczka. Całkiem spoko ipa.
