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

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!

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!

boFNjackson (4191) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle... Something like 13 days old when consumed and poured clear amber/golden with a moderate white head. Tick mouthfeel, bitter, earthy hops. Quite resinous with pepper spice, citrus, and pine. A definite west coast IPA. Super heavy on the hops of course. Some malt sweetness for body and balance.

12oz bottled December 11, 2012...very fresh. Served at around 40-45F.

Pours clear amber with a thick two finger off-white head that sticks around forever leaving nice sheets and spots of lacing behind.

Aroma is big and dank hops, marijuana, onion, grapefruit, some pine and cat pee, dankity dank. Very good strength.

Flavor is chewy resinous hops, grapefruit, onion, marijuana, quite a big caramel malt backbone as well, needed to try to balance the biting bitterness. As it warms the bitterness subsides somewhat and the big malts come forward more. Decent alcohol bite too.

Mouthfeel is full-bodied for an IPA, sticky, good carbonation.

Pretty good dank DIPA. At first the bitterness was huge and biting...settles down quite a bit as the malts really kick in. I love unbalanced super-bitter IPAs and while this is quite good, it could have been better and lived up to its name more.

Pours polished brass in color with a good sized head. Nice retention. Intense high note hop aroma. Pine, earth, and cannabis. Check that, cannabis, then pine and earth. Bitter attack, then a medium sweet flavor that is quickly drowned out by an ultra-bitter mid-palate. Medium body, average carbonation, creamy-oily texture, and an endless oily, bitter finish. This is just as I remember. Insanely hopped extreme beer. A must try for hop lovers.

12oz bottle--->tulip. Pours a clear orange/amber with very little head and light lace. Aroma is dank herb, grapefruit, and heavy pine. Tastes exactly like it smells and is pretty damn bitter (in a GREAT way). Nice crisp palate with just enough carbonation. Not exactly a "palate wrecker", but a great west coast hop bomb. Love this thing.
