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

355ml bottle. Bursting with big fruity hop aromas and a crazy resinous hop flavour that coats the tongue and travels to all parts of the mouth leaving long lingering finish. Definately one to sip and enjoy.

OMG! This is one of the best beers I have ever put to my tongue. Purchased in bottles at Craft Brewed Bottle Shop & Tasting Room in Nashville, TN. Be sure to check this place out whenever I'm Nashville and ask for Ryan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Simply put this is a perfect american imperial IPA. No reason to get fussy. Smells like fresh hop pellets and tastes like thinned out IPA wort. Golden clarity with a white lace leaving head. Really amazing!

I have to give this amazing beer a perfect score as it wants for nothing IF you’re a hop-head which I am. Pours a lovely sunset orange, little head that doesn’t stick around. Taste is a powerful and intoxicating mad power-ball hit of fresh hops. The malts are right and make a brief appearance then another blast of bitterness that is numbing and lingers. Yes it obliterates your palate. Just a fine massive jack-pot of flavour!

The grand brewmaster has come down from the mountain top to anoint this beer. So good. Every thing is balanced. Aroma is rich caramel malt with just the exact perfect amount of resin hop to match. Flavor’s like nose having enough tang to enhance the bitterness, while not enhancing the relative dryness. Again, it’s not that it’s dry, it’s that it’s balanced. Palate is perfect; in fact, I’ve found the perfect match- Miss Vickies Sea Salt & Vinegar Chips with TINY dips of this insanely strong horseradish stuff from northern Wisconsin place called Smuggler’s Lounge

For hop lovers only! Bright golden to orange color heavy lacing on glass, aroma of citrus and pepper with tad of leather. Malts are there but hop dominant of course. Well balanced long lasting bitterness. Perfect.

22 oz bottle. Aroma: malty, citrusy, and piney, with hints of caramel, grapefruit, bread, resin, grass, and barnyard. Taste/Palate: sweet, crisp, and thick; finishes with a long bitterness.

Hazy copper pour, nice head. Like most Green Flash beers, taste is supreme. Hoppy full taste, smooth and not overwhelming despite the 9.9 . ABV. Very drinkable, feels like a sneaker. Poured from 32 oz, Growler,
