4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 moat bitter beers I’ve had, but actually pretty well balanced.

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.

Draught at MacGregors in Rochester. Copper brown with a small white head. The appealing aroma is mostly sweetish citrus. The flavour has grapefruit up front, and a nice balance between bitter and sweet. Perfect bitterness in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Arminettis. Pours an unclear orangey copper with a foamy white head leaving a lot of spotty lacing. Aroma has fruity, piney, citrus with caramel. Taste is of heavy bitter citrus, pine, sweet fruits and malt, and some resin. Medium to full bodied and somewhat sticky. Finishes bitter fruity with bitter-salty-sweet. Strong IBU, certainly, but it is tasty as well. Chased this one for two summers in interest of trying. It was quite good; very much at the end of the Green Flash line with the super bitter IPA/DIPAs.

Tap. OMG! I thought Green Bullet was bitter. This one is really, really bitter. Aroma is hoppy. Gold color. Massive head.

Yup, columbus and centennial! Those hops dominate the aroma, spruce and pine, along with some malts. Extremely bitter, a true hop monster but over west coast-y. Tasty but lacks balance

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is an IIPA on steroids. I can taste nothing but hops in this beer. And I love it. The Palate Wrecker pours a light bronze color with a thick and pillowy light tan head. The nose is pretty much all hops, too, with some hints at some grapefruit, lemon, pine, grass and earth. The body is a little on the heavy side and fills up the belly fairly quick. The flavors, obviously, are all hops as well. The hop profile is thick and bitey. The hops really jump out of the glass and hit you in the face. There actually is some balance, not much, but some, in this beer. I can taste some caramel malt and some bready flavors. The beer finishes semi-dry, fruity and very spicy.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013 Orange/amber colored pour. Big off-white head. Tons of lacing. Big orangey aroma with a nice pine and malt background. Taste is full of tasty hops and a nice bready malt presence. Very good. Smooth with a bitterness that lingers for a bit afterwards. Good.
