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 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....

Lagerboy (1217) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
Bomber. Unclear orange copper, lasting firm fine tan foam. Pungent grapefruit herbal hop aroma. Bitter grapefruity citrus herbal spicy hop taste well balanced with sweet caramel malt. Average carbonation, medium-full bodied, aggressively hopped. More of a palate shocker, and: DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

Awesome beer. Very hoppy aromas and flavors but balanced well enough with a slightly sweet malt backbone. Bitter but still drinkable.

bottle - Pours lightly hazy amber with a one finger, off-white head and good lacing. It has a good citrus hop aroma. The flavor is very bitter with citrus hop character, a hint of resin, and a solid malt body. It’s very good.

Nice and rare. I?d like more aroma but the flavor is well balanced. And it is hopplicious.
