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

Tap: Crystal clear copper color with a small but steady off-white head and spotty lacing. Classic hop aroma of grass, junipers in the summer, and a little lemon. Great flavors abound among the super bitter hops. Strong grapefruit rind in the aftertaste. Wow, this one lives up to it’s name. My tongue was ruined after this!

On tap at the Saucer. Thanks Cavie... Reddish orange with a small white head. Aroma is caramel, sweet, pine, and more roasted sweetness. Taste is pine, bitter, sticky astringency, and a weird finish.

Cavie (3971) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle from FW Saucer. Pours a clear orange color with a foamy ring of head. Aroma is super sweet, nail polish remover, maybe a little hoppy? Flavor is also super sweet, lightly bitter. I do not like this, at all. Which sucks cause I live big hoppy IPAs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle into.shaker. Poured a copper amber, little to no head, no lace. Aroma is west coast hoppy, it is citrus and floral. Taste is pine and grapefruit. Bitter, complex, well balanced. Slick mouthfeel, sticky, hops feel glued into mouth in finish. Love it.

MarinaMarket (218) - POULSBO, Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Pours clear amber with substantial head and sticky legs. Aroma is off-the-hook. Resin, floral, and citrus notes with dark fruit and spices. Mouth feel is perfect for a large IPA, with a bit of an old ale quality. Flavors are resin, fruit, sweet, salty and more. Super complex. Tasted at 53F.
