4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz. bottle from Grape & Gourmet (listed as 9.5% on the bottle). Pours dark orange with a two finger thick off-white head. Aroma of pine resin, wet grass, and hints of grapefruit rind. Wonderful flavor of bitter grapefruit, pine, and just a touch of pineapple. Some noticeable alcohol on the back end of this one. This is a wonderful beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear dark orange with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is bright and citrusy with a touch of pine. Flavor lives up to its name as a palate wrecker. Massively piney with a grapefruit and tropical fruit backdrop. Totally unbalanced and I love it.

On draft at The Abbey in Seal Beach.... Aroma of floral and herbal hops.... Flavor is grassy and bitter, like chewing on hops, overwhelmes the palate.... Finish is bitter piney hops... Pretty solid beer if you are obsessed with hops, could use a little more balance

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Smoke and Barrel in DC. Classic IPA amber/copper pour, small to medium fizzy head. Nose and flavor hold green onion, orange zest, wet lemongrass, touches of chinotto and scallion. Palatable, not too smooth for a DIPA (as one might expect from these guys). Quite nice!

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.

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!
