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

bottle, from the fridge at olbaren. deep golden with a lingering head; loads of pine and grapefruit in the nose; plenty of bitterness but with some pleasant vanilla peach character to the malt; very swillable for the style

Amazing balance of hoppy intensity and malt character. The alcohol content is hidden behind huge notes of pine and thick mouthfeel.

Bottle from Joe?s Waterhole Eumundi. Looks great in the glass, with an aroma almost honeyish... I liked this beer. Big hoppy taste and a long bitterness on the palate. A good 2IPA, one of the better American beers I?ve had of late.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2013 Bottle. Ar: caramelly, butterscotch, resin, earthy, alcohol, Ap: slightly hazy amber colour, medium white head, lacing. T: big resinous bite, noticable sweetness, alcohol, malts, dusty old hoppiness, P: soft carbonation, full bodied, long lingering and warming finish. T: decent, but the bottle was probably old.

caramel, resin, floral, earthy, aroma’s. high bitters, but seriously what did you think it would be when you brought it. the carbonation sneaks right past you when you get hit in the face by the bitters, low to medium carbonation. medium sweetness, heavy bitters :) , slightly salty. I enjoyed this and might be mad enough to buy another. Did i mention it was bitter?

very nice IPA. Doesn’t measure up to the standard set by Stones Ruination but is a decent stand in

Pours copper amber with a nice off white head leaving lace. Aroma is fruity citric piney caramel and malty. Flavor similar to aroma, a bit sticky. Good bitter finish.

ACHops (641) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2014 12 oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours slight cloudy yellowish copper with a thick white head. Aroma is sweet juicy malt with floral citrusy bitter hops. Taste is similar: big sweet caramel malt that is quickly overwhelmed by bigger bitter hops. Some nice citrus, pine, floral, and earthy notes in the hops, but mostly dominant bitterness. Heavy, but doesn’t taste quite 9.5%. 149 IBUs is the biggest IBU rating I’ve ever seen published by quite a bit. It had me a bit nervous, given that bigger DIPAs come in around 100. It’s one of the more bitter beers I’ve had, but actually pretty well balanced.

Aurelius (4031) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Resinous, sweet grapefruit aroma with honey/toffee. Brumous, honey-apricot amber, loose frothy head. Good embossed, squat 12 oz bottle; bad label. Bare-knuckled hops, satisfying sweetness, marmalade, cooked citrus. Long, citrus pith hop finish. A big beer. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.
