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

Draught @ Kaisla, Helsinki

Pours clear copper colored with a tiny head. Aroma of floral hops, grass, caramely malts and sweet toffee. Taste is sweet and malty with a lot of caramely toffee, floral hops, grass and hints of fruits. Finish has a lot of floral hops, bitterness, grassy notes and sticky malty caramel. Okay, quite sweet and malty IPA.

Fidzer (5) - 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.

LiwkoLiwko (189) - POLAND - MAR 4, 2017
Złociste jak koncernowe lagery. Klarowne. Piana stredniopęcherzykowa. Niezbyt trwała. Intensywny cytrusowy aromat. Na pierwszym planie grejpfrut. W tle cytryna i owoce tropikalne. Średnia goryczka grejpfrutowa, brak słodkości w smaku charakterystycznej dla większości polskich IP.

Yellow color small head. Very bitterrrrrr!!!!!!� Tons of aroma.. Used to be one of my favorite IPAs. Lately the last bottles Ive been getting have a stronger caramel sweet character in there than I can remember which has ruined it a bit for me. I dont know if they have changed a bit the recipe or something?
