COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2012
Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours a clear deep golden with a dense off-white head. A somewhat herbal hop aroma, but not overly intense really. Medium body, lots of sweet malt and a little overripe fruit. Intense hop accents, again very herbal without being overly clean or crisp. A distinct hop build-up towards the finish. Nice if not exactly exceptional. 040612

omhper (19218) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2012
Bottled at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy pale amber, rich firm head. Tremendous aroma of swety tropical fruits and pink grapfruit. Medium-full body and soft, inviting mouthfeel. Loads of juicy hops. Intense, yet pleasant. Severe but never punishing bitterness. Green Flash has a way of making also very extreme beers acceaaible and drinkable.

GBBF Cask. Reported at a ’mere’ 9.5% here. Hazy gold beer, residual white head. Nice citrussy nose with some cat piss! Smooth semi dry palate. Intense Citra come Nelson hops with a little dried fruits. Some tropical fruits buried in there as well. Finishes smooth and semi dry. Nice DIPA.

fiulijn (14338) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014

2014-05-01, draught at Pumphouse, Richmond, 16oz, 7-5-8-5-15=40
Fruity, resiny, abrasive but too heavy.

2014-02-27, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 7-5-8-5-15=40
Amber color, clear, with creamy head. Sweet and fruity beer, with a good mix of malt and caramel, medium sweetness, a bit candyish, strong bitterness, hop resins, cedar peel, and a mild animal character present in the aroma and flavor.
Good, potent, but I wouldn’t drink much of it.
