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

Hoppy DIPA with bitter aroma and aftertaste. More herbal than fruity. ABV about right for the style, and we’ll hidden.

12oz into a solo cup. Small white head. Clear orange pour. Smell is tropical fruits, caramel malts, pine and some grapefruit. Taste is tropical, resin, sticky malt backbone. Very drinkable for 9.5%.

This pours a fairly clear orangish amber with about a finger and a half of white head. This has a nice nose on it, but I was definitely expecting more because of all the hops pumped into it. I get what I would expect from Columbus and Centennial hops, mostly citrus, a little floral note, not too much malt that can be detected. Upon tasting, I got the initial smack of hops on my tongue, but it wasn’t as "wrecking" as I expected. Still, it has a strong bitterness, the actually flavors could be a little stronger, again some citrus, a little floral, not transcending though. I taste very little alcohol for the ABV and the finish is bone dry which I like. Pretty good, but I prefer their West Coast IPA, providing when I can find it fresh.

On tap at Triangle Wine Co. Pours an amber color with a white head. Huge bitter citrus hop aroma. Taste matches the aroma. Body is average for an IPA. I guess for a bitter hop bomb this one isn’t bad but it’s not really my style of IPA.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 12 oz bottle. the beer pours to a reddish amber color with a very thick slightly off white head. The aroma is extremely up front with resin citrus and some grass notes. The taste is very bitter up front followed by a lingering hop bitterness. Overall I am a big fan of the beer although it is very high IBU, it is well balanced. Would buy again.

Flaska på örebro ölcafe. Djup orangefärgad med vitt skum. Söt maltig doft. Lite platt smak. Trött humle. Något spritig. Rejäl beska

On tap at Manito Tap House Toasted apricot with a solid quilt of fine toasted cream foam. Unusual look for a IIPA. Lots of pine, tangerine, grapefruit (tons of grapefruit), some pineapple, nice dose of underlying biscuity malt with a touch of sweetness. Bitter, metallic, sweet, pine, resin, more resin, some grapefruit peel, some nice spicy hops - really hoppy (haven’t said that in a while). Medium bodied with small, sharp fleeting carb leaves a active feeling beer with a character wet almost slick finish. Nice mouthfeel here. Good beer.
