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 amber color with a white foam head. Has a piney aroma with hints of caramel and grapefruit. Sweet caramel taste with a harsh resiny hop hit and grapefruit notes on the finish. Hop lovers treat. Love it.

pours a copper/amber color - somewhat hazy - nice thick frothy light beige head. Aroma is nice. Citrus and pine. Whoa...flavor is very strong balanced by a nice thick sweet malt backing. Flavor grapefruit giving way to pine and then back to grapefruit on the finish - very bitter at the end and the taste really lingers

One of my favorite DIPA’s to date. Aroma is fresh hops and citrus fruit. Taste is massive citrus hops with a long bitter finish. Decent malt bill gives it balance and a bit of sweetness. Get it fresh while you can.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear dark amber with a nice white head. Strong aroma of pine, florals, and citrus. Taste is similar with some malt. Very bitter and very intense.

Nimrod979 (206) - Hagerstown, Maryland, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bomber poured into a tulip glass. Appearance - Glowing bright orange with a thick pillowy white head. Long retention and moderate lacing going on. Aroma - Very inviting. Lots of tropical fruits, mango, grapefruit, orange citrusy hops to go with some dank piney resin. Hint of malts. Taste - The citrus aroma doesn’t carry much to the flavor. Mostly bitter, piney resin hops. Quick hint of malts for some balance and sweetness before being overtaken by a bone dry bitter finish. The citrus notes surface a little more towards the end. Mouthfeel - Smooth, creamy, oily mouthfeel. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Exceedingly long bitter hoppy finish. Pretty good hop bomb, This beer has a lot of hype around it but I’ve had better DIPA’s. Still a solid brew. I’d get it again.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle from BevMo in Scottsdale, AZ. Pours a hazy mango-copper supporting a medium tall and firm light stone head. Thickly laced throughout the glass. Huge pine explosion during the pour with more in the flavor along with grapefruit, milk chocolate, toffee and more floral notes. Chewy, sticky texture and a long, bitter finish that leaves your tongue drenched with hops. Very aggressive but still balanced. Can’t wait to try it on tap.

I was expecting this to be a nice one, but it exceeded my expectations. Pours clear light bronze with a large soapy off-white head. The aroma has tons of tropical fruit, smooth citrus (mainly grapefruit), heavy floral aspect and for this being as assertively hoppy there is still a really nice balance with toasty and fruity caramel malt. Medium crisp body with a really nice amount of semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with a hop onslaught that has earth, pine, citrus, spice and a mintiness. Some of the aroma malt is there, but to a lesser degree. At this point is is a super-solid IIPA, but the finish is where it really knocks it out. The finish has a hop explosion that fills the mount with what seems like grapefruit pith, pine needles and a coating resin that just never leaves. For such a bit big beer it gives is a liveliness and is delicious with hop pleasantness. It is ultra-dry, but falls short of being abrasive even with the dryness and hop blast. Some alcohol shows through, but its complimentary to the beer. Excellent IIPA. Would like to try this next to others I’ve got at the top of my fave list as this may be my favorite at this point.
