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

This pours a clear, golden amber color with a slight head. The aroma is slightly bitter. The taste big and bitter.

Delish. Definitely a good imperial ipa. The bitter hits you at the end so it’s quite an experience.

Palate wrecker is an appropriate name. You can taste the 149 IBU for sure but it isn't a blast to the palate as you would think. It's a subdued overpowering of hops.

22 oz bottle. Aroma: malty, citrusy, and piney, with hints of caramel, grapefruit, bread, resin, grass, and barnyard. Taste/Palate: sweet, crisp, and thick; finishes with a long bitterness.

Poured from a bottle. Aroma is barnyard, sweet and grassy. Flavor is sweet, grassy and bitter with a sharp hoppy flavor. As the beer warms it has a slight caramel flavor to it.

For hop lovers only! Bright golden to orange color heavy lacing on glass, aroma of citrus and pepper with tad of leather. Malts are there but hop dominant of course. Well balanced long lasting bitterness. Perfect.

Bottle pour at home, dark golden pour, bitter hop aroma, lot of bite in this one, kind of roasted hop, solid hop bomb.

On tap at Thirsty Monk. Light fruity aroma. Big bitter taste with some citrus fruit. Goes great with my spicy taco.

Bottle. So this is what 149 IBU’s feels like… eagerly awaited I finally grabbed a fresh bottle at Brewer’s Haven. Great clarity in a golden orange pour and topped with a thick and creamy sandy head. The nose is a little subdued, imo, a blend of citrus, tropical fruit, and pine. It’s potent, but a smooth bitterness. Sort of resembles a syrupy citrus and tropical fruit and piney hop bomb. Lingering hoppy bitters, but not edgy. It’s loaded with hops and bitterness, but it really doesn’t scream bitter. Quite drinkable.

Pretty hoppy. Close to hop devil. Actually it's a little more bitter on the finish. I'd definitely get this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
