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

Kavu (2225) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2012
Pours hazy golden with a medium thick head. Aroma is malts with plenty of fruits. An apt promise of what’s to come. Flavor is malts, some fruits, alcohol and really really much hops. Very nice.

stefannilssons (1462) - SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2012
Kraftfull sak med en ytterst kraftig men ack så skön. Svårt att rate’a med kamrater runt omkring, men den här var god och jag skulle rekommendera den.

Enjoyit (3460) - Vadum, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2012
Clear copper of color with a foamy orange head. An aroma of pines, citrus, sweets, spice, and grapefruit peel. A flavor of sweets, hops, grapefruits, herbs, leather and a very dry mouthfeel.

Ktwse (1989) - SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2012
Pours orange to amber, cloudy, with thin white head. Aroma is resin, pine, slightly citrusy and grapefruit. Full, thick and pungent bitterness from the start that almost grows in your mouth. Finish is mellow but long, balancing it out. Body is medium and somewhat creamy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

omhper (19365) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2012
Bottled at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy pale amber, rich firm head. Tremendous aroma of swety tropical fruits and pink grapfruit. Medium-full body and soft, inviting mouthfeel. Loads of juicy hops. Intense, yet pleasant. Severe but never punishing bitterness. Green Flash has a way of making also very extreme beers acceaaible and drinkable.

larsga (6206) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2012
Biggish deep offwhite head. Amber body. Resiny minty aroma with mango and spice notes. Sweet-dryish resiny minty citric taste with caramelly grassy notes. Full-bodied. Soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dry grassy pineapple aftertaste with caramelly dusty dandelion notes. Nice, harmonic, highly drinkable. (0.355l bottle, shared by gr0ve.)

Tap at the Boilermaker, Philly - 24/05/12. Copper coloured with a thin white head. Fresh grassy hops on the nose allied to a little fruit and sweet malt. Taste as aroma with pine and a hint of orange. Bitter tasting, medium dry finish.

b33r (672) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Nice dark gold color with small off white head. This is a pure hop bomb all the way around. Very bitter- just extreme. Good once in a while if you’ve got a hop craving

rogsiu (42) - Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Pours a hazy amber with a nice off white frothy head with good retention and lacing. Not too much besides Citrus and hops on the nose. Taste is grassy, fruity, citrusy hops that are balanced well. Taste is bitter, but in a good way. It's a good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
