3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an amber color with a moderate white head. Nose and taste both have some strong hoppy bitter elements to them, yet the beer ends up being super smooth and well-balanced. One of the better IIPAs I’ve had.

Bam! Talk about an in your face double IPA! Big aroma, big hop flavor, and the bitterness definitely wrecks your palate. Very enjoyable if that's what you like (like I do)!

Drought at BeerAuthority, NY. Dark yellow appearance with beige spongy head, hops aroma, very strong bitter shoppy taste, long finish, It is indeed a palate wrecker!

Actually really good dipa...good aroma and hop taste. And not overly sweet. The hop bouquet is not muted like most doubles or strong iPas... Try half acres double daisy cutter for another great double ipa...love the flash

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Last rating from fantastic long weekend of beer tasting and skiing at Snowshoe. Bottle->SA. Pours copper with frothy offwhite head. Aroma is strong floral and citrus hops. Taste is biting bitter hops and pine. I hate to say it, but too much hops here to really enjoy for too long. Splitting a 12 ounce bottle was a good decision.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap - @ RHP. Pours clear gold-yellow, little white head, diminishing. Aromas of big piney notes, pungent resin, grapefruit, citrus, spicy hops, little bit of caramel whispers on the edge if the palate at the finish. Medium bodied, serious. Long giving finish. No joke. Aptly named. Delicious.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft. Palate Wrecker is a great name; this is like a hop punch to the mouth. Big aroma of citrus/grapefruit and pine. Malty with lots and lots of hops and a fair amount of complexity. Great DIPA.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Big aroma of grapefruit hops, pours a clear amber with a tight white head. Big blast of grapefruit and bitter hops, with enough malt backbone to support them. Lingering bitter finish, slightly slick mouthfeel. This is a great IIPA, and one that you should try if you’re a hop head.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper pour. Off-white/beige head. Huge grapefruit and citrus hop aroma. Nice sweet malt to balanced aroma. Incredibly bitter/grapefruit flavor... with a surprising alcohol tinge(flavor points deducted) for a beer only rated at mid-9s in abv. Dry finish... but gets super sticky after the 3rd or 4th sip. A little to big for my palate, but still a very good beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Excellent aroma of pine, grapefruit, pineapple, and caramel/bready malts. Absolutely delicious blend of all of those aromas in the flavor department as well - the balance here is extraordinary. Yes, the hops are there for sure, and boy do they stick around, but this is not a one-note by any means. One of the best DIPAs I’ve had without a doubt! YUM!
