Palate Wrecker was originally brewed for the Hamiltons Tavern 2nd Anniversary celebration. Its the most complicated West Coastinspired IPA we have ever brewedmashing 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 isnt for everyone, only the real hop heads!!!). Cheers! - Chuck Silva - Brewmaster - Green Flash Brewing

bottle into big sam adams glass. Amber straw ale w/ average white head, looks innocent. Nose is fucking thick & oily. Citrus, grass, pine, everything- at once. Carbonated yet syrupy mouthfeel that puckers and lasts. There are a shit ton of malts to pull this off, but all I can focus on is the hops (of course). Herbal, sticky, acidic hops. What separates this 100+ IBU IIPA from the rest though, is really how deep & unrelenting the bitterness digs. You hit so many different flavors: lemons, limes, & grapefruits. Pine needles between teeth & sap on fingers. Diesel herb & Lemon Head candy. Great beer!

Rant: How does this beer NOT have a 100% style rating??? Oh, & I just loled at so many ratings like not even as hoppy or a palate wrecker as -insert whateva your favorite/typical amazing 7% IPA is-.......Yeah, OK.

Pours deep golden with good off white head which lasts. Aromas of tropical fruit, pine, honey and cereal. Medium carbonation and good mouth feel. Big flavour of pine hops, alcohol and malt. Similar to Brewdog hardcore ipa. Big bitter finish and medium sweet

355ml bottle from Brewdog shop. Small white head, a little lacing. Clear amber body. Nose is pine, treacle, resin, stewed fruits. Big piney resinous flavour, apricot, molasses, then the bitterness really kicks in, lasting resinous bitter aftertaste. Light carbonation, good mouthfeel, a little bit of chew. This is a proper west coast DIPA, the bitterness is relentless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

An excellent imperial IPA. Pours well, lovely rich colour, a good hoppiness but surprisingly not overwhelming. Excellent beer, surprisingly restrained and this is a good thing! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dank hops, pine and a touch of sherbet on the aroma. The flavour is amazing, initially bright citrus, then bitter hops. Brilliant .

pours amber with a huge fluffy head. the aroma is grapefruit, citrus, pine, resin, and tropical fruit. small amount of pineapple. the flavor is strong with malty but the hops are so complex i cant find any describable flavors that are not resin. the body is nice and smooth with a medium feel, overall this is quite good, very over the top tho!

Big and very light copper in colour this crazily heady and slightly sticky beer pulsates bitterness. The bitterness is fairly uncompromisi g and the acidity is sharp & cutting. Good.

Another solid IPA offering from Green Flash. Rich hop flavor that provides solid bitterness from start to finish. Well balanced and enjoyable to drink.
