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

Lite ruby in color. Very clear, no particles. Still hoppy smell. Earthy aroma. Very bitter. I know you can only taste bitterness to 80 IBUs, but this just seems so much more bitter than others I’ve had in that range. Earthy flavor. Hops also come through. Hops and bitterness are noticed throughout you’re mouth. I like it. This really well wreck your palate.

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 (2831) - 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.

cattrall (53) - Midlevels, HONG KONG - JUL 4, 2015
Beautiful stuff. Full aroma full bodied huge hoppy bitterness. Pours a medium cloudy golden straw with thin head. Somehow smooth and soft on the nose - banana? With citrus. But whacks you on the nose with flavour. Strong lingering bitterness. Love it.

tfontana (202) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Bottle from The Drinkery, Londonderry NH. Aroma is very hoppy--resin, floral, grassy, herbs but, surprisingly, there is also a malty bread, yeasty dough and a little bit of cheese smell. Appearance is hazy light brown with finger-width off-white creamy head with fair retention and mild lacing. Taste is initial mild sweetness in an almost unfinished wort way which is then battered by tons of bitter. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, lively carbonation and mostly bitter but lightly citrusy finish. Overall, a complex aroma with a pretty nice look and pleasing palate that just isn’t my cup of tea in terms of taste.
