COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Palate Wrecker was originally brewed for the Hamilton’s Tavern 2nd Anniversary celebration. It’s the most complicated West Coast–inspired IPA we have ever brewed—mashing and sparging with hopped wort, in addition to our hop layering regimen for IPA. We use almost 6 lbs/bbl of Columbus and Centennial hops to create this very bitter hop monster (tested at 149 IBU and no extracts in case you were wondering). By popular demand, it is now released for the world to enjoy (even though this beer isn’t for everyone, only the real hop heads!!!). Cheers! - Chuck Silva - Brewmaster - Green Flash Brewing

Smells like grass! Organic and hoppy bouquet. Color is amazing, with minimal head. Very bitter, definitely is a palate wrecker. Luckily, not too lasting. Carbonation seems smaller than it should. An interesting beer, living up to its name.

On draft at Tampa Bay Brewing Company, poured a golden orange color, aromas of pine, grapefruit and bitterness. Flavors are all hops, grapefruit, and a kiss of citrus. Palate Wrecker is appropriate becasue the hops destroyed my palate.

Gold pour, white head. Aroma is malty, a bit funky(armpits is a good call by hellbilly!)...flavor is maltier than I would expect from the name.

hopscotch (10085) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Growler… Clear amber ale with a large, frothy, white head. Good retention. The nose furnishes piney, resiny, earthy hops flanked by hints of caramel, fruitcake and pear. Full-bodied with stinging carbonation. Toffee and caramel malts provide an excellent stage for the tropical, citrusy, rindy hops to show off. Lengthy, bittersweet finish… with the bitterness lingering on and on and on. Growler courtesy of richiesd!

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2011. Golden orange color. Pungent juicy hop aroma with mango, elderberry, grapefruit and orange. Firm smooth bitterness in the flavor with complex tropical fruit character. Dangerously drinkable, one of the best double IPAs.

Christian (11786) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2015 Cask at the GBBF 2011. Golden with a small white head. Hoppy aroma of grass, perfumed citrus and herbs. Dry and hoppy flavour with grass and pine. Quite bitter and also quite elegant as cask ale. 3.6 rating.

Keg at CBC 2014. Golden with a thick and lasting white head. The aroma is like sniffing a bag of fresh pellets. Citrus, pine and green hops. Sweet hop juice flavour with pine notes dominating. Intense and lingering hoppy, bitter finish

2009 on Draft. Aroma: Ripe guava, with just a hint of durian funk Palate: Full bodied Flavor: Starts with tropical fruit syrup and finishes long good resinous hop that supports the malt plus ends with a full, rounded mouth feel and lightly roasted caramel malt.

Draught @ Tadg’s, Kyoto. Rated on 09.09.2011
Fresh and hoppy aroma has lots of exotic fruits, but at the same time it is a bit light. Flavour is sweet and rather hoppy with resin and fruits. Good DIPA but too sweet, again.
