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

Pours clear with very white head. Aroma is very fresh cut grass, tropical fruit and slight menthol. Taste is incredible, so hoppy, blows most "hoppy" IPAs straight out of the water. Word of warning: Make this your last drink of the night because nothing tastes the same afterwards.Reminds me of Ruination IPA from Stone (US)Great with spicy food.Maybe the best beer I have ever tasted.

Pours a clear blonde beer with decent saturation and a white foamy head. Smells hoppy, fruity, floral and fresh. Really lovely smell. Tastes bitter but also surprisingly fruity. This beer also has a very lovely and balanced palate despite it being this hoppy. I truly love this beer!

Wow... This drilled into my very core - super bitter as expected - low malt - great hoppy citrus flavour - an APA on steroids. Fantastic beer.

Aromat świeżych owocw tropikalnych, trawa cytrynowa, zioła prowansalskie. W smaku wyraźna słodycz kontrowana doskonałym amerykańskim nachmieleniem, trochę ciała, goryczka świetnie wspłgra z karmelowością. Piwo gładkie, bardzo pijalne i jedne z niewielu takich gdzie aromat jest tak samo dobry jak smak. Nie spotkałem jeszcze takiego polskiego piwa ktre dorwnałoby tym podobnym ze Szkocji jak i z Danii. Problemem jest to że żadne z polskich jakie prbowałem nie jest na tyle przyjemnie słodkie i goryczkowe. To jest. Pite po raz trzeci - po raz trzeci doskonałe.

This is another cracking beer from brew dog, massive fruit aroma, big punchy mouthfeel, great bitter finish! Remind me of the greenflash West coast ipa, beautiful!

Fresh and hoppy. It smells like christmas tree and tastes like grapefruit. Its taste is bitter, but somehow sweet bitter. Just what I want from IPA.

La Jack Hammer, lIPA extrme par essence: des armes de pamplemousse et surtout une amertume de folie, trs houblonne mais, aussi bizarre que cela puisse paraitre non seulement, cest bien fait mais en plus cest super fin!

Fabulous colour. Bitter twang which lasts. Tropical scents with a initial hit of mango and passion fruit. --- a mobile beer rating
