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

From a 12 oz bottle on Super Bowl Sunday. Pours a clear amber with a thick off white head. Citrus hop aroma. Pine, grass and citrus. Smooth mouthfeel. Bitter finish.

Lagerboy (1216) - 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.

patrick767 (3566) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 16, 2014
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.

Kita (1040) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle, 0.355l. Clear amber orange color with large rocky off-white head, good lacing and flat visible carbonation. Aroma of citrus, berries, mango and resin hops. Taste starts with moderate sweet and rich caramel malt, following is resinous with dried fruits’ acidity and well hidden alcohol, mouthfeel is spicy, while finish is heavy bitter with long aftertaste. Full body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. Harsh astringent start turns into completely palatable brew, however it’s balanced with huge amount of malts...
