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

I don’t remember being too impressed by this. Overly resinous and thick hoppiness that I do not care for. Not as fruity and bright as I like.

Pleasantly surprised, as it is not as intense as I thought after reading the description. Hoppy for sure, but relatively smooth and slick. Some malt comes through the hop assault as well, making this a tasty beer. Cheers!

Afterburner! This copper beauty conducts hops like no other. Even leaving a hop stash on your tongue post drink. Nose in the glass is like being smothered by @CrosbyHopFarm If you like sweet malt, avoid this at all costs. Great head retention with mini tiny loving bubbles. Goodbye Enamel. Hello Love.

pours unclear medium dark golden with a frothy white head, good retention and lacing. doughy and chewy fruity toasted malts, caramel touch, dank fruits and hops, wet leafy coney grassiness, peppery, earthy, boozy, some sweetness - honey and golden sugar. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily and sticky - a bit heavy, slightly harsh citrusy-grassy-resinous finish. big beer. nice but not outstanding.

flatmatt (1264) - Northville, Michigan, USA - FEB 13, 2014
22 oz bottle. Pours orange amber with a very slight haze and an off-white head. Strawberry or tropical fruit aroma, orange and grapefruit. Flavor doesn’t really show that odd strawberry I got, instead being a mix of citrus, pine, and tropical fruit, quite bitter with just a hint of sweetness. Definitely a good one.

BLADT (680) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Dark orange. Some pine on the nose, with crisp hops and some funk. Abrasive hops is the first taste. But followed by a strangely comforting sweetness. Not bad.

dansac (107) - Loa Angeles, Alabama, USA - FEB 10, 2014
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.
