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

Bottled. Clear amber beer, frothy head with good lace. Huge piney and polleny hop aroma, a hint of green grass, massive toffy-toned maltiness underneath. Bold malt body is quite sweet, but resiny bitterness soon takes over. Lingering bitter, resiny aftertaste. Full bodied, thick and almost oily texture with biting resins from the hops. Huge DIPA, very nice.

Pours an amber color with a moderate white head. Nose and taste both have some strong hoppy bitter elements to them, yet the beer ends up being super smooth and well-balanced. One of the better IIPAs Ive had.

Bam! Talk about an in your face double IPA! Big aroma, big hop flavor, and the bitterness definitely wrecks your palate. Very enjoyable if that's what you like (like I do)! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

trapped (2607) - New York, TURKEY - FEB 26, 2013
Drought at BeerAuthority, NY. Dark yellow appearance with beige spongy head, hops aroma, very strong bitter shoppy taste, long finish, It is indeed a palate wrecker!

Actually really good dipa...good aroma and hop taste. And not overly sweet. The hop bouquet is not muted like most doubles or strong iPas... Try half acres double daisy cutter for another great double ipa...love the flash ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DCLawyer (2787) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Last rating from fantastic long weekend of beer tasting and skiing at Snowshoe. Bottle->SA. Pours copper with frothy offwhite head. Aroma is strong floral and citrus hops. Taste is biting bitter hops and pine. I hate to say it, but too much hops here to really enjoy for too long. Splitting a 12 ounce bottle was a good decision.

AxlLives (288) - Maryland, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Tap - @ RHP. Pours clear gold-yellow, little white head, diminishing. Aromas of big piney notes, pungent resin, grapefruit, citrus, spicy hops, little bit of caramel whispers on the edge if the palate at the finish. Medium bodied, serious. Long giving finish. No joke. Aptly named. Delicious.

Draft. Palate Wrecker is a great name; this is like a hop punch to the mouth. Big aroma of citrus/grapefruit and pine. Malty with lots and lots of hops and a fair amount of complexity. Great DIPA.

Nephilium (1752) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Big aroma of grapefruit hops, pours a clear amber with a tight white head. Big blast of grapefruit and bitter hops, with enough malt backbone to support them. Lingering bitter finish, slightly slick mouthfeel. This is a great IIPA, and one that you should try if youre a hop head.

Kroney (255) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Copper pour. Off-white/beige head. Huge grapefruit and citrus hop aroma. Nice sweet malt to balanced aroma. Incredibly bitter/grapefruit flavor... with a surprising alcohol tinge(flavor points deducted) for a beer only rated at mid-9s in abv. Dry finish... but gets super sticky after the 3rd or 4th sip. A little to big for my palate, but still a very good beer.
