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

RexTalionis (2602) - FINLAND - DEC 3, 2012
Bottled. Pours hazy amber in color with a frothy off-white head. Some citrus, earth/forrest and light spicy notes in aroma. Sweet, slightly yeasty with some bitter grapefruit in taste. Strong bitterness with some malty sweetness mixed with some spicy and earthy notes in aftertaste. Quite heavy to drink at first, but easier towards the end. Good combination of the maltyness with some bitter hops. Actually very pleasant one this brew.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle 355 ml. A slightly unclear deep golden with a dense white head. Herbal hoppy aroma, notes of caramel with earthy and peachy fruity hop-accents as well. Taste is sweet malty with strong herbal hop notes and a dash of overripe fruit. Medium body and a finish that is bitter as expected, but not as bitter as expected. With a slight warming alcohol burn in the finish, but surprisingly easy to drink.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2012
12oz bottle from a four pack that cost $12. I was excited to try this and while it was a decent DIPA it just really wasn’t my bag. Nice orange color, thick head, thick lacing. Smells like a bit of pine, strong hops which I like but I wasn’t quite wowed. The flavor is extremely bitter but also has a strong caramel flavor from the malts. Kind of sweet too which I did not care for. Overall, above average but I won’t be buying any more. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-29-2012 00:28:30

35,5cl bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours slightly hazy amber with an off-white head. Hoppy and caramelly aroma with pine, fruits, citrus and malt. Quite sweet caramelly with lots of hops and a nice and bitter finish. A bit too much on the sweet side for my liking, but a very decent DIPA. Full body and pleasant, bitter aftertaste with pine and citrus.

Foffern (1294) - Bodø, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2012
Bottle at home. Has a slightly hazy amber colour with a small off-white head. There’s a lot of hops in the aroma, almost like pure pelets that feels like resin, herbs and some organic iron. In the mouth I first sence grapefruit then some sweet pine and then some powerful hops. Has a soft and slick mouthfeel, and a heavy bitterness. This is powerful DIPA, maybe too violent in my opinion.

humlelala (1035) - DENMARK - OCT 27, 2012
(Bottle from Bagsværd Vinhandel; 8459 B 2012) Pours clear amber with medium, creamy white head. Plenty of lace and good retention. Aroma is herbal, earthy hops with notes of whithered leaves. Oily texture, soft carbonation, full body and a somewhat sweet and warming finish. I’m not a fan of the style but this comes in the top-5 of what I’ve tasted. I can’t help but think it’s let down by the old hops though..
