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

S: caramel color, solid off-white collar, thick head, good lacing A: sticky, hop aroma, floral, dry, citrus T: initial soft, malt, followed quickly by bitter hops, but smooths out very well, medium body, medium finish O: a very well-made IPA, great balance of malts & hops, tasty, worth having a few times & then a few more times, get it while you can! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In draft at sheffields. Clear red color with very sticky foam in tulip glass. Fruity and hoppy aroma. Grapefruit , floral and Carmel taste. Super bitter and hoppy but just how I love it. This one has me smiling

Poured from one of those cool Green Flash bottles into a weizen glass. Pours with a big ass amount of head. A little bit of sticky lacing, but not as much as I’d expect. Skunky (as in skunky hops, not skunked beer) aroma. Mouthfeel is super thick with a lot of carbonation that gets lost in the viscosity of this bad muthafucka. Taste is super piney. Like sucking on a freshly cut spruce tree. A good IIPA but not my favorite. I was worried about this being too bitter for me but it wasn’t. Probably because of the massive amount of malt to get his up to 9.5% abv.

12oz bottle. thanks to andrew for letting me have one of his. he probably didn’t like it and just wanted to unload it... semi-bright and assertive citrusy piney hop profile at first with a little sense of astringency and abrasiveness harsh tones towards the back.... flavors have some added sweetness upfront and through the middle with some biscuity caramel malt notes but the hops soon take control with an astringent and bitter piney citrusy hop feel. bitterness continues late and lingers on the palate for quite a bit. medium bodied, somewhat soft maybe, with adequate carbonation. harsh.

Bottle from a trade with cbkschubert. Pours dark golden orange color with off white head. Aromas of pine and citrus. Same flavors with sweet maltiness. Medium to full body with avereage carbonation and a resinous mouthfeel. Thanks Craig.

Bottle share by Sloth in his basement of wonder. Copper in glass with big white head. Holy hoppiness hopman! Twists my head around and makes ones head shake as if steadily consuming hot peppers. In this case, hops are substituted for chillies. Its like chewing on fresh hop cones!

Aroma you get a lot of pine and hops with a little citrus. Pours a golden amber color with a fluffy off-white head. Taste Iike drinking hops with a little citrus and bitter alcohol after taste love it. If your a true IPA fan you will enjoy ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma- huge astringency, grapefruit, pineapple, peaches Appearance- rust orange, opaque, incredible lacing, nice fluffy white head Taste- massive astringent bitterness upfront, clean, fruity middle with pineapple, peaches, and blood orange, unreal bitterness on the backend Palate- wrecked Overall- Lives up to the name. Very potent, not especially drinkable but in a good way. Hop bomb not for the faint of heart. Get some.

certainly seems more than 100 ibu. Just too bitter. Better done than other super high bitter beers, there is some taste. Golden red colour. Not my favourite great DIPA.

Aroma is a lot of pine with some citrus. Pours a golden amber with a nice off-white head. Taste is pine and caramel with a ton of hops. Very good.
