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

Bottle. It’s a hazy, dark golden beer topped by a dense, finger-thick off-white to beige head. Lots of hops in the aroma, green pine cones, resins and citrus peel, and also a touch of maltyness. The flavor has a pleasant underlying malty sweetness, and up front there’s hops, some more hops and even more hops. A nice bitterness, grass hints and lots of resins and citrus zest. Lasting finish. Pleasant indeed, sure wouldn’t mind having more of this. 120915

Clear deep amber color, small steady beige head. Rye-bread, sugar and hops in the nose. Medium-bodied. Bready, sweetish flavor, not very fresh feeling (has it ever been?). Aftertaste has nice long resiny hoppyness.
