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

Lukaduke (2793) - Gray, Maine, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Pours a hazy copper orange color with a frothy lacing head that sticks around for a good length of the beer. The nose is hop heavy citrus with sweet caramel notes holding their own. The palate is big juicy and hop forward but the malt sweetness keeps the bitterness in check. Big grapefruit, tangerine and peach flavors lead into a round sweet caramel mid palate that slowly fades into the bitter sappy pine abyss that lingers on and on....

I love beers with lots of everything and this is really one of those. Great hoppy bitterness and lots of malty sweetness and the perfect amount of sourness. Gooood stuff.

Pours opaque apricot. Off-white head with fine bubbles. Full, oily body. Dry finish. Very, very long bitter aftertaste, with suggestions of nuts and bread. Oddly doesn’t have much aroma.

Another feat GF beer. Way better than Nelson even though hoppier and more bitter. Just seemed so fresh and green hops and pine. The fresh hops eliminated any type of astringency like the Nelson.

It pours dark golden with lacing. The aroma features powerful citrus aromas with spruce and floral elements. The flavors feature a greater floral bite with spruce, citrus, and fruit peel. It is extremely hoppy with a high bitter feel on the palate.Overall the combinations of hops and well complimented.

On tap. No detailed notes - entering from earlier tasting. They tell you exactly what’s going to happen here - not the honey or caramel you find in a lit of imperials, just hops and pine for days. Drink last and have some rich food ready.

Garrold (3054) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle. Mother Kelly’s, Bethnall Green. Clear amber. Film of sticky, white head. Punchy, spicy, greasy, resinous hop. Herby, minty, toffee malts. Taste is minty sweet. Turns big, herbal, resinous bitter. Full, chewy palate. Finishes long, oily, pine resin bitter. Doesn’t feel the ABV. Very nice.
