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

Sampled on draft at D’s Monroeville this beer poured a dark caramel-orange color with a medium sized foamy white head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was semi sweet pine, tropical fruits and sugar. The flavor was very bitter and rough with piney hops and sour caramel. Turns dry towards the long bitter and rough finish. Moderately full bodied. Ok.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2013 Bottle from The Bottle Shop; hazy amber pour with soapy white head, zesty piney hop aroma, massive bitter licking a square battery like taste with zesty citrus hops slight metallic. Really nice drinking DIPA.

Very clear copper pour. Medium white head with some lacing. Super floral hop aroma with lots if citrus as well. It smells like putting your nose in a just opened pack of hops. Taste is like "hop tea." Very bitter. Floral and citrusy. Like sucking on a lemon. Freaking awesome for a hop head. ---Rated via iPhone

Pours a clear amber with a 2-fingered white head. Smells of spruce and more spruce, orange, floral blossoms. Taste is bitter and moderately sweet - quite a hop-bomb - spruce, orange, grapefruit, followed by caramel, white bread.

It really is a plate wrecker, But is this a good thing? I love most DIPA’s, but this is too aggressive and one sided.

Pours a Dark copper, with little foam, aroma of hope hit straight away, full of citrus and pine. Nice dry bitterness, with a full body. Perfect winter IPA

UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 Pours a copper color, aroma is citrusy hoppy grapefruit and som pineyness and a slight grassyness note. Taste is resiney hops upfront with grapefruit and citrucy and some lemon peel notes. Bitterness lingers all the way back and sticks to your tongue like resin. If you like dank bitter hops this is your best choice. I personally would like a bit more of a Sweeter malt character to balance out the strong bitterness hops.This is probably the hoppyest beer ive had so far. This beer wasnt crafted to be the perfect balanced tastyest beer. It was crafted to get you hopped the f*ck out! Very great beer! HOP BOMB!!

Phatdog1 (179) - Brentwood, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 19, 2013
12 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Hazy copper pour with a thin half inch head, which disappeared into the thick liquid in no time flat. Giant nose of pine needle, citrus & lemon grass. Thick on the tongue, full on fresh resiny hops. Lingers into a tongue numbing bitterness. Everything that I would have expected from the name. This is a rock solid DIPA.

12 ounce bottle. Pine and citrus aroma, same for the taste. Appearance is a stilled copper, no lacing, no bubbles after one minute from the pour. There may have been some oxidation here, because there’s some funky bitterness and metal burn going on...no bottling date on it, so no idea how it’s been around. Overall, it’s a grapefruit hop bomb, and it does its best to live up to its name.
