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

Very nice composition with both smell and taste in balance. Both are small explosions though. Typical ipa with equal taste and smell. Not subtle.

pawos (10) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 16, 2017
Piwo jest jasne, kolor właściwie słomkowy, idealnie klarowne. Piana całkiem ładna, pozostaje na szkle. W aromacie mocne amerykańskie chmiele, czuć owoce tropikalne - mango oraz pomarańcza. Piwo jest raczej wytrawne, niewiele czuć słodw i słodkości. Goryczka dość wysoka ale przyjemne, niezalegająca; pozostawia za sobą wyraźnie chmielowy posmak.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2017 Bottle. Hazy yellow colour with a medium white head, massive fruity and citric hoppiness in the nose with notes of grapefruit, peach and orange, taste is also hoppy-fruity with only a very subtle sweetness and a long, overwhelmingly bitter finish.

basjansen14 (84) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2017
Goud kleurig bier waarvan de schuimkraag snel verdwijnt. Aroma is: tropisch fruitig, voornamelijk ananas en wat mout. Smaak is veel fruit, mango, grapefruit, wat ananas, wat wit brood en in de afdronk aangenaam bitter.

Finally came across this famed IPA at Rocas Caf. Hazy orange with a quickly disappearing white head. Lots of fruity notes, grapefruit, citrus, mango. Malty sweetness. Long bitter and spicy finish. Thats the kind of IPA I prefer.
