COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Abijen (2559) - s-Hertogenbosch, - AUG 13, 2013
Pours a nice cloudy beer with a good white head. Smells pretty fruity. Grapefruit. Tastes really nice. Big fruity taste and nice bitter. Thick body and a very dry texture with a good average carbo.

Bottle from Pezinsk pivn pumpa. ...with VERY intense aroma. It hammered me in the moment I was pouring it to the glass. Look sucks though, appears almost as morning piss. No head, no life in it. Now how do you taste dear hammer? Hoppy! And very bitter! Second sip? You, inbound taste of hops is like a blitzkrieg of 1939th. Leaving no survivors and even if they are any, they are quickly wiped out in second massive wave of bitterness. I like!

Pours a clear orange with light white head. A strong citrus hop, pine and tropical fruit aroma. A sweet but bitter taste of citrus, tropical fruit, pine and bitter hops. A lingering bitter hop and light citrus aftertaste.

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

Fidzer (6) - 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.

Piana przeciętna, i niezbyt trwała. W zapachu mocne cytrusy i żywica, bardzo przyjemny, W smaku tez cytrusowe, grejpfrutowe, goryczka potężna, ale przyjemna, niezalegająca. Nad podziw pijalne, orzeźwiające, bardzo dobre piwo.
