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

Dark yellow pour w/ frothy white head. Huge aromas of orange & pine- love it! Sticky lacing down the glass. Flavor is lots of hops! Bitter orange pith, more pine, even a hint of lime zest towards the end. Creamy, yet light mouthfeel. Finishes pretty dry & bitter. Good!

Bottle from my homie up in VA. Pours clear golden with a decent off-white head and okr lacing. Smell is grapefruit, pine, orange and peach. Taste is intitially sweet and with citrus fruits, peach, resin and nice caramel backing. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. Ends up dry and decent bitter. A very nice IIPA.

Pours hazy orange amber with a beige head. Aroma has lots of citrusy hops, orange, weak tea, resin, some malts in the back, bread crust and some leaves. Taste has a high fresh bitterness, juicy citrus fruits, pine, a weak tea aftertaste, peach and orange aswell. Would love to try this fresh .

Ungstrup (29992) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2012
Bottled. A pale amber beer with a huge lazing yellowish head. The aroma has notes of hops, hops, and more hops, as well as caramel, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, hay, alfa acids, caramel, and malt, leading to a very bitter finish.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Pours a slightly cloudy, pale golden orange color with tangerine hues and a half finger frothy white head.  Decent retention, slowly fading into a lasting ring.  Streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Resinous earthy aroma with grassy/soily pine notes countered by sweet fruit and pale malt.  Hints of pine needle and grass followed by grapefruit and orange peel.  Biscuity malt with graham cracker and sweet booze. Medium bodied with a blast of dry resinous hops that provide a strong bitterness that lingers into a dry finish.  Earthy pine needle and spruce followed mid palate by citrus/tropical fruit notes that prevent it from becoming one dimensional.  Citrus rind, grapefruit and pineapple followed by biscuity malt and sweet booze.  Thin and a bit watered down but easy to drink.  Strong bitterness is nicely countered by sweeter notes but it’s a bit too thin and boozy for my liking.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2013 Extremt balanserad DIPA en av de bästa på marknaden... Lagom kolsyrad . Uppfriskande lättrducken där fruktighet både i doft å smak inte går överstyr. Ingen smak sticker ut utan helt perfekt..

MotherBrother (783) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2012
Pour slightly dusty oramge, with a large n’ frothy off-white head. Aroma of pine, apricot, slight caramel, grass, weeds. Quite a lot is going on here, which is nice;) Taste is pretty darn bitter, with some sweet, caramelly notes to back up the bitterness. Long, bitter and dry aftertaste though. Medium body, with a semi-fizzy carbonation.

Defreni (2775) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2012
Flaske: Meget typisk IIPA, der er rejst over atlanten. Orange øl med et let støvet humleduft. Meget bitter, men det er klart når humlen er falmet. Men stadig kan man smage at amerikanerne bare kan det der med IIPA. God øl.

35 cl bottle @ home. Pours amber with a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is hoppy with a lot of pine and some citrus as well as some sweet malt. Flavour follows the aroma quite well.
