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

Super hoppy aroma, resin and a malty backbone. Pours clear orange with a thick white head. Really hoppy but has strong malt to back it up, long caramel finish.

Bottle: The aroma consists of caramel, tropical fruits, pineapple, citrus, some herbal and dank hops, vegetal notes, and light grapefruit. It pours a transparent amber with a two finger orange-tinged off-white head that eventually fades to a thick film. There is a lot of soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate caramel and tropical fruits. The finish has moderate grapefruit, dank hops, and vegetal notes. It’s medium-full bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Overall, the vegetal notes are really killing this for me.

From a bomber to a shaker. Light clear orange with big white head and ample lacing... Smell the hops from across the room. Huge citrus and pine resin aroma, balanced with a malty sweetness and very bitter finish... I would wreck my palate any day!

Orange color with a white head. Aroma contains orange, grapefruit, and lemons. Perfume as well. The flavor is bitter and malty. You get caramel as well as the citrus. Overall a nice well balanced iipa.

Another great brew from Greenflash. It poured a hazy golden orange with a white head. Big fruity hop aroma and powerful hop taste. Very tasty!

Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a creamy off white head that diminishes to a lasting ring leaving good lacing. Huge aroma of mint, pine, citrus. Medium sweet and heavy bitter, bitter that stays and builds into the far finish especially on the back edges of my tongue. Average to soft carbonation, orange rind sort of bitterness, medium body, oily to creamy texture. Excellent for a hot summer day.

It says something about craft beer when I was able to pick up a bottle of this at the local fish market, one that 10 years ago would have featured strictly white wines. Poured a very slightly hazy orange gold, good head. Aroma was a blast of pine and grapefruit citrus, with some tangerine notes. Flavor matched, but it had a solid malt backbone - very clean, but just enough sweetness to keep the bitterness from overwhelming. Darn tasty.

One of the most bitter DIPA’s I’ve had. Great citrus aroma, nasty strong bitter hoppy taste with a lasting aftertaste. Great Imperial, truly for hop heads only though.

It’s an extremely hoppy beer but it still tastes surprisingly smooth. A phenomenal IPA.
