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

Had at San Diego Brewers Guild Festival 2008. Loads of hop aromas and flavors. Grapefruit and pine cone flavors. Pretty tastey DIPA not overpowering.

Tap at Toronado. The name says it all. A huge hop bomb. Nice copper color. Great aromas of fruit, mainly peach and apricot. However the taste is all hops with a mouth puckering bitter finish.

On tap @ Hamilton’s Tavern. Pours a deep golden orange with a 2 finger off white head that left great lacing. Big nose of pine and citrus. Flavor was big and hoppy with a good malt presence. Definitely a hop bomb! Finish was very sticky.

Umm, wow. Pours hazy orange-gold with an impressive short-but-thick white head. Colossal citrus/floral hop aroma. Grapefruit and pine oil just pound you in the face. The taste surpasses the nose. Grapefruit, pineapple, mango, and truckloads of resin. A tad more citrus than earthy pine, but who cares. Just a little caramel malt to give it a hint of sweetness. I really have to thank the Green Flash guys for not making the chronic mistake of putting too much malt in and making this a sour-candy DIPA. Its nearly perfect the way it is.

On-tap at Hamilton’s and O’Briens. Pours hazy amber with a frothy white head, good lace. Smells citrusy and potent hoppy sweet and resiny. Hate to say it but it reminds of PtY, in a good way for sure. Tastes big and resiny hoppy, earthy with big, dark citrus as well. Lots of bitter citrus flavor, complex and lingering. This stuff is hop syrup for sure! Full, syrupy body, good carbonation.

alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - OCT 21, 2008
Poured an amber color with a creamy, off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, caramel, and fruit. Very hoppy in the flavor. Hops were earthy and piney; not too much fruity. A little one dimensional; toffee/caramel not too present. Not too sweet. Just a solid beer; nothing too amazing.

4.5
Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Pours with an amber body topped by a thick head with lots of lacing left on the glass. Hoppy, hoppy, hoppy with notes of grafruit, pine and apricot as an underlying malt sweetness. Full bodied, smooth and warming.
