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

Delicious beer; my favorite by Green Flash. Pours a brown, amber, with a prominent carbonation. Aroma is huge hops, with some funk, resin, dank grass, herb. Mouthfeel is quite robust, with booze; flavor is sweet, very hoppy and funky, strong malt base, very heavy stuff. Delish.

Fantastic IPA. Hoppy and smooth. Aroma is hoppy and the palate leaves a smooth finish.

A nice fresh citrus aroma comes off this. And that’s pretty much the only area where citrus makes its presence. Immediate hop bitterness on the tongue. Not a very drinkable brew that probably being obvious given the name. A lot of caramel in the taste in not the best way. Has a thicker feel to it. Good but can’t go through too much of it.

Chappy's. Dayton. Draft. My kind of beer. Wickedly bitter. Long palate. Could pass for a rye or ESB. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours cloudy orange with white head. Nose is sweet citrus. Fizzy almost malty front and bitter through out.

Huge beer with fantastic hop character. A bit on the malty side, but fairly well balanced with an enormous amount of hops. Overall, a delicious offering from Green Flash. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Clear copper color with little head. Lots of citrus in the aroma. Very bitter with a little bit of malt flavor at the end. Not very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It’s bitter, but not in the elite category of DIPAs. Missing the floral or citrus bomb in aromas that distinguish the good ones.

574deadzone (1178) - North Central, Indiana, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Pours a fairly clear orange toward amber with a thicker khaki head that settles to a big-bubbled ring and leaves some dripping lace. Nose involves some signature dank dustiness, catty high-alpha onion/garlic, underlying tropical fruit, a dash of pine resin, some toasted malt, getting toward some rubber a la green bullet. If it’s sweet at all, it’s completely masked with bitterness, though it’s a fairly clean bitter. Really oily, medium-ish bodied, tannic and drying, slippery, a bit juicy, with a long dry finish. Would be great paired with spicy or heavily seasoned fare.

Bottle pours blood orange with a 2 finger off white head. Looks awesome. Aromas of strong citrus, some pine and florals, a little tropical fruit too. The taste is very bitter with an alcohol punch. The malts peak through on the back end with a slight caramel syrup note. The palate has a lot of bite to it with a slippery coating followed by bitterness. Overall this lives up to its name and wrecks you. Strong, big, bitter, hop-head mania! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
