COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Ha! Jokes on you! My palate was wrecked long ago. Sucker! True to its name, this is a lot of hops - mostly citrus, grapefruit, but some resin, too. Brown sugar, too. Taste is also kind like brown sugar on grapefruit. Sticky, long finish. Tasty.

Travlr (22016) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2012
Draft. Clear golden color, massive thick white head with solid lacing. Aroma of intense centrifuged pine needles. Taste has enough pine to turn you inside out. Shocking.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Ar: Resiny pine - some spicy - very herbal. Ap: Copper, crystal-clear - large off white head with very good retention and chunky lacing. T: Lemon and pine up front, herbal and resiny - toasty and bitter, lingering into the finish - leafy, almost tannic, quality of the high bitterness - long finish with lots of lemon and black tea. P: Medium-light body with medium-carbonation - finish is dry. O: Bracingly bitter 2XIPA - bright fresh hop nose - nice.

Draft. Clear pale color with light tan foamy head. Citrus aroma. Omg is this hoppy and bitter. Palate wrecker is an excellent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours gold into a Sam glass. Bright white micro head with medium retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Grapefruit and resin aromas. Tangerine and resin upfront turning to grapefruit in the lasting finish.

peteinSD (1465) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 30, 2012
UPDATED: APR 11, 2012 Tap. Golden caramel pour with a froth of white foam. Aroma is heavy on the hop bitterness with sharp pine and some sweet malt. Taste is dominated up front by sharp and aggressive hop bitterness before giving way to a fairly sweet, malt heavy backbone. Also seems like some honey in there on the finish. Nice mouthfeel that even gets a bit creamy on the back third as the beer warms. Perfectly nice beer but it reminds me of a lot of other malt heavy IIPAs Ive enjoyed.

Thisis12ptfont (1121) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Strong leafy, herby aromas upfront with a masked fruitiness. Deep golden brown color with a thin foam top. Taste a huge hoppy bitterness upfront with a subtle caramel maltiness behind it. Very light fruity characteristics and a masked carbonation. Overall, a fantastic brew with a ton of intense hop flavor. Id give this an A+ rating.

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine - Pours a crystal clear copper color with a one and a half finger thick off white head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is big pine, resin, and floral hops. Flavor is also big pine and resin hops. The resin hop flavor really lingers in the finish. Medium body. This beer is a hop lovers delight.
