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

Bottled on 01/08/13, so make of that what you will for freshness. Nose is fresh and hoppy, leafy green and floral tones, wood and a little bit of pungency. Pours a hazy bright orange with a creamy off-white head. Taste is very strongly bitter with light sweetness forced underneath. Alcohol is there but slow to spread and pretty well integrated; comes off mostly as gentle warmth. Big hops dominate the flavor, woody and floral Centennial, but theyre smooth instead of harsh. Smooth fullish body. Honestly, Id take this over their West Coast IPA every day of the week.

The body was a deep orange shade of amber, and formed a two finger thick head in the tulip glass. The aroma was very piney and spicy and very much in line with the West Coast style. The taste is where the complexity started to show up. There was a mouth puckering, tobacco like bitterness up front which stayed throughout the taste. The initial shock of bitter was followed by some tropical fruits, such as mango and pineapple. The finish was spicy, with notes of ginger and clove. The beer felt very dry and did not show much of the character of the malt. This definitely lived up to its name, as I cant imagine having another beer after this, except if its another Palate Wrecker.

22 oz. bottle- pours mostly clear orange with a nice two finger fluffy white head and curtain lacework. Aroma is whoa, pungent sappy resinous pine, citrusy, there is sweet malt in there, but wow, the most intense hop aroma i have had in a long time. The taste is the same, intense hops, hop heads delight, very resinous, sticky bud, some citrus, and the malt is there. Body is medium and carbonation is medium. I personally loved it, in your face hops, you might as well drink a glass of hop juice, the hoppiest beer I have had in a long time, maybe ever.

Thanks scott! Clear copper pour with a thin white head. Piney, grapefruit, citrus, and earthy hoppiness with sweeter caramel malt backing it. Hops bitter the front of the tongue with citrusy grapefruit, light peach with caramel malt mid palate with a bitter end. Very drinkable.

Light coppery amber color with a thin tan head. Very hoppy, smooth and bitter. Earthy but with a certain foundation of malt. Very nice.

Definitely a straight up palate wrecker. Citrusy aroma of hops and some pine. Super bitter but not overly crazy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
