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

lamas (1573) - Washington DC, USA - APR 28, 2012
Bottle. A clear copper pour with a big and creamy beige head. The resiny aroma features plenty of pungent grapefruits, citrus rinds, tangy tangerines, lemon juice, caramel, pepper, loads of dough, and some touches of caramel. Goes down relatively full-bodied. The taste starts with some caramel and sour doughy salty pretzel qualities. The drying finish features loads of grapefruits and citrus rinds. Quite piney. Some warming alcohol is present throughout. Good stuff!

Daytonbeer (726) - Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2012
Pours orange with white head and tons of lacing. Aroma of a pine forest, citrus, carmel, and funk. The taste is big and full, yet surprisingly well-balanced. Lots of pine first, followed by malts, with a bitter and alcohol aftertaste.

DuffMan (9606) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 28, 2012
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Hazy light orange with a white head that settles into a thin wispy surface covering. Very intense green hop aroma, rooty even, with background sweetness, and some radish oddly enough. Oily hoppy body, bursting with vegetal hop character, supported by sweet honeyish malts. Long bitterness. Very satisfying.

BARLEYWINEO (106) - Tacoma, USA - APR 28, 2012
A: Poured a light auburn color with good carbonation and a nice white cap. Bubbles fade away with no lacing after a few minutes.This beer looks heavy. S: Wow bittering hops with orange peel, grapefruit, pine needles and some bread. Big nose with a nice booze sting. T: Immediate hop bitterness with a big pine needle aand grapefruit presence then with some orange peel. Some heaviness in the middle with bread, grapefruit and a light flower note and more pine. Sticky, warm and bitter on the back end. M: Heavy, low carbonation O: Very good on taste and mouthfeel, palate wrecker indeed

turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2012
On tap. Deep copper. Little head and lace. Average carbonation and mouthfeel. The big story here is massive resinous piney hops! Very bitter and I love it. The malt also backs it up. A big beer for real hopheads.

michcam8 (503) - Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2012
Had on tap 13oz. Light amber in color with an off white head. Aroma of hops with a good amount of malts. Flavor is more on the malty side, which somewhat overpowers the hops. Descent DIIPA that would try again.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a cloudy amber/orange color with an inch off-white frothy head that sticks around for a long time. There’s also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells mostly like citrusy (tangerine, orange, grapefruit) and pine hops, and a bit of caramel malt. However, I don’t pick up quite as much citrus in the taste (as compared to the aroma). Mostly I taste a lot of bitter pine hops, along with some citrusy hops (mango, grapefruit) and a little caramel malt. There’s a good lingering bitter hoppy finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s lick and creamy with good carbonation. Overall I think this is a good brew and I’d buy it again in the future. $8.99 a bottle.

PhillyCraft (5902) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2012
On tap, pours a hazy gold orange color, thin white head, great sporadic lacing. Aromas of juicy centennial, pine, and diesel. Taste is juicy and fruit filled up front but ultra bitter at the finish. Almost a little too bitter and boozey but still a great ipa. Very oily ipa, wish the malts and grain could have tamed the bite and I never say that with this style.

PD4Ever (109) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - APR 26, 2012
22oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Bought a week ago and was just delivered so i know this bottle is fresh. Aroma: malt, floral hops, citrus, peaches, oranges, smells incredible but was expecting a more pungent aroma. Appearance: copper color with a half finger layer of yellowish head that faded slowly. hardly any bubbles rising. Not hazy once it settles. Taste: medium sweet, and mild bitter Palate: Aftertaste is medium sour and gets more bitter as it lingers. heavy sour after the sweet and bitter have faded. lots of grapefruit flavor here. Finish is quite long. I was expecting this to be alot more bitter but there is a strong malt backbone. A bit of heat is detectable but not much. Carbonation is average. Overall: I don’t think I will buy this again. It wasn’t what i was expecting but actually more drinkable that I was planning it to be. I prefer my DIPAs to lean more towards peaches/oranges versus grapefruit flavors. Definetly lots of flavor here just wasn’t my preference. The sourness in the aftertaste is really strong.
