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

Pours clear amber. Hoppy citrus nose. Tons of hops on the front with a slightly warming finish. Definitely lives up to the name and an excellent brew.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle from PD. Clear, light amber pour with a medium white head which fades quickly to leave moderate lace. Nose is severe cut grass, pine and ganja. Medium-heavy body with moderate, fine carbonation and lots of hop oiliness. Weed, caramel, spruce, cheese and a rosemary spiciness. Hops are overwhelming, in the tradition of beers like Arctic Panzer Wolf or Lukcy Basardt, but the malt base is there to support it. Aptly named, rivals the best.

Orange pour with a small white head. Big citrus / pine hop nose - layered with some spice notes. Med to full body with tons of chewy hop flavor with oozing citrus notes and pine. Tongue scraping bitter finish. This beer lives up to its name!

Martinus (3046) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2013
Orange copper colour, white head. Aroma of hops, tropical fruit, passionfruit, citrus, resin and honey. Light floral. Hop bitter flavour, quite sweet malts. Relatively full body, bitter finish, fruity and floral.
Nice! Quite balanced for such a hop forward beer.

nealm759 (34) - Georgia, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Growler filled at hopcity in Atlanta. Pours a dark golden color, nose is sweet tropical fruit hoppy smell, nice carbonation, thick white head. Taste is a bit of sweetness, bitter sweet hop, grapefruity flavor. Bitterness is very strong but not too too much. Definitely a beer to finish the night with. Tastes similar to the west coast on steroids. I recommend it to any hop head!

22 oz bottle thanks to Ben @ Casey’s: Pours light yellow, nice white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Smells like a spruce forest floor. Beautiful, oily, smooth as hell. Sweet hop flavor, not entirely bitter. Rich!

drowland (6144) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2012
12/29/12. 12oz bottle from Grassroots Natural Market. Clear amber pour with a nice off-white head that cuts to a ring but laces in nice rings and sheets. Big dank, bitter hop aroma with a nice malt backing that hints at caramel. Really big hop kick in the flavor as well, plenty bitter, with lots of pine, dankness, citrus, caramel, and more. Very tasty and goes down very well for a double IPA. Tasty!
