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

Flushed with the obligatory floral notes of the style, this IPA carpet bombs the tongue with a stew of hop bitterness. Not to say it’s a harsh wilderness, the brew also has a smoothness that emits class and structure. Love that hazy wood color, too; I can almost count the rings in it. Fantastic offering by the artisan markspeople over at Green Flash.

Bottle. Hazy pale amber color with a thick foamy off-white head. Aroma of pine, caramel and tropical fruits. Sweet and bitter taste with a bitter finish. Sticky feel.

Poured from bottle, orange copper. Strong grapefruit herbal hop aroma. Very bitter, but as expected based upon the IBUs. Slightly unbalanced with the abundance of hops. I had it paired with a BBQ pork chops, and it overpowered everything on my plate. Good beer, but i wouldn’t want more than one in a sitting.

This will wreck your palate. If your looking for balance, look elsewhere. This is for hop heads. 149 IBU’s deliver the punch you are craving. Excellent

Radek Kliber (6490) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 18, 2014
Where and how: bottle 355? ml
Aroma Bold? Yes! Hop galore, West Coast in single capsule. Sharp, even tad peppery line, citrus with fused sugars on smooth vodka.
Appearance :
Top: lighter yet lasting white top.
Base: hazy amber.
Palate : .
Taste: Quiet hoppy, well very hoppy yet not super aggressive bold bitterness as one might be afraid to be. Citrusy with hint of rhubarb. Profile that hop heads will love it. It has all right keys in play.
Other notes solid old school 2 IPA.

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.
