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

Aroma: Dank; pungent; herbal; catty; pine/menthol; melon; apple/kiwi; grapefruit. Ridiculously layered and complex hop profile that continues to unfold over time as the beer settles into the glass. Flavor - BITTER. Bourbon-like; molasses; toasted walnuts; toffee; wood-bark; grapefruit; resin; candy sugar. Overall: A perfectly conceptualized beer that is simply way too intense for my palate. The most bitter beer I’ve ever had. Difficult to drink. Very astringent.

robgibbens (412) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Pours brown amber with a nice white foam. Aroma is earthy, caramel, blackberries. The beer is very bitter and tart to start. Feels like it’s all alpha-acid. I am not digging this one.

Lagerboy (1230) - 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.
