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

Pours slightly cloudy amber with white head. Aroma is citrusy and piney hops. Very smooth mouthfeel with mellow sweetness supporting an evolving hoppiness. Starts out pretty citrusy,with a long lasting lingering bitterness on the finish. Alcohol is well hidden.

Great ipa. Had it with a bunch of others so don’t really recall taste but it was good. And lots of alcohol

Look: pours a dark orange. White head. Thick lacing. Very clear. Smell: grapefruit. Oranges. Tangerines. Sweet citrus. Dank. Flowers. Taste: grapefruit. Orange. Cuties. Flowers. Hops. Feel: medium carbonation. Dry but not as dry as I thought given the name. Overall: ok beer. Thought more hops and bitterness given the name. Had more hop forward and hop heavy beers than this. First drank: home 2/12/15 Vintage: 2014

Now this is a pale ale. Nice hoppy taste, balanced with a easy malt. Not a big aroma to speak of, but a damn fine brew.

Appearance is small white head with amber color. Aroma is hoppy. Taste is very bitter, earthy hops. Overall not my favorite style, but well made.

Shot (197) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Pours reddish gold with a thin white head. Good cling. Aromas of her new, citrus and pine. Flavors are very hop forward. Apricot, butterscotch, honey, grass, herbal tones. Finishes with a lingering hop bite. Noticeable alcohol warmth. Sticky mouthfeel. A very big beer. Nicely done.

brigg (529) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 31, 2015
(Bottle) Clear orange body, small-medium off-white head. Strong orange/grapefruit citrus aroma with floral tones, a bit peppery. Medium bodied, soft, foamy. Sweet caramel, fruity-floral flavor but with a sharp hop bitterness on top that picks up on the way back. Alcohol is noticeable but not doesn’t taste like 9.5 percent. Very bitter finish; some resin.

reberiii (387) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Bitter finish, but certainly a smooth drinker. Briney piney nose, clear orange pour with plenty of foam. Super dry in the end, light citrus, hanging bitter, but light body.

Bottle at home. Pours golden amber, does what it says on the tin, incredibly bitter, fruity, dry.
