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 a clear ruby red with a miniscule head. Half-decent lacing. Disturbing piney nose, punctuated with circus peanut and cilantro. Off-putting earthy flavor, and I also get some baking soda and banana. Rather light and fizzy mouthfeel and long finish.

ALLOVATE (2281) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2012
Into a snifter at just on cool. Orange copper and just shy of bright. Carbonation is lean, intermittent and it settles out virtually headless. All hop nose; lots of camphor, pine needles and pinewood, sap resin, vine clippings, lemon grass and grapefruit. To be honest it just reminds me of a mix between Mortein™ insect spray and a pine scented Little Tree™ car air freshener. Rather light on the palate, very dry, grassy and weedy. Camphorous and piney in back and into the swallow. Subdued sweetness upfront; low to no malt or yeast notes. Alcohol is well masked being a positive. Drawing and acidic fruit esters rip at the palate. A hint of grapefruit, Bay leaf and eucalypt linger long between sips with all the other hop chaotics. A hop ‘BOMB’ and little else. Doesn’t really showcase the hops it used so blatantly. Average! (new batch, 12fl.Oz, no date stamp, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

Tap. Pours a nice orange color with a white head. Aroma is filled with grapefruit, some pine, orange and some pineapple. The flavor follows the nose, lots of grapefruit and pine, some sweet malts, orange and pineapple. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a good DIPA, but not as intense as I thought, compared to something like Mikkeller 1000 IBU Ultramate.

TheRussB (20) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Pours a rustic orange with a 2f off-white head. Notes of mango, pine, and citrus. Full and a touch of creaminess with a dry bitter finish. Aptly named as it quickly wears out the taste buds. Aroma is nice, but the taste can get brutal halfway through. Probably not something I would have again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

unclemattie (4036) - Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Crazy shaped, 12oz "Green Flash" bottle. Pours clear, amber color, tall white fizz. Aroma of hops. Loads of florals, citrus, some spruce. Earthy resin scent with some grass. Soft on the palate. Creamy texture. A large amount of hop oils coat the tongue, gentle resin of hops flavor. I can see how delicately layered the hop additions were done while making this beer. Hopefully all of these hops that were used will aid in putting me to sleep tonight, hops have a calming effect on me. All layered on a simple yet hearty malt backbone. (3369)

Pours amber colour, fluffy thick head. Loads of citrus hops in the aroma. Taste is intense with fruity hops and bitterness. Very good DIPA!

ThirstyBird (1198) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2012
Thanks J for bringing this! Pours a slightly hazy amber color with tight off white head. Nose is a deep malt backbone, caramel with tart fruity hops. Big blend of malt and piney hops in this one...the malt sweetness hit first then tart fruity hops. Medium at least in body nicely carbonated. A thick amped up DIPA a touch malty sweet for me but pretty nice.

DeputyAndy (632) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Draft at mad Mex wg. Pours a straw yellow with no head. Big citrus and pine nose. Flavor is very bitter. Does what it advertises. Alcohol warmth slightly affects the body, leaving it a little thin.

Draft. Clear gold white head. Sharp hop aroma, bitter taste that coats the mouth. Nice strong iPa

Habanero (2175) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2012
Bottled. Pours clear and deep golden with a small off-white head, fair lacing. Nose of grapefruity, pine and peach. Sweet flavor with citrus fruis, peach, resin and caramel notes. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. Ends up dry and decent bitter. An exceptional IPA.
