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

Pours dark orange with a potent hop aroma. An amazing overpowering hop profile finishing with sweet with notes of grapefruit and pine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OMG. This is way over the top! HUGE hop flavor that overcomes your senses.We were at a tasting and this took best of show for us. Too bad the guys that represented the brand and served us were jerks. Made us feel guilty for asking for free samples. That aside.....seek out this beer if you like the style!

Bottle. A clear bright copper red tinted brew with a long lasting eggshell white head. Rich grapefruit and pine in the big aroma. Almonds, toast and hay also sneak through. A big bruiser of a beer, this still manages to be fairly drinkable. There is some booze, but it is mostly in the finish. Almonds mix in with grapefruit rinds. Notes of hay also come through with each sip. Wood is also present. Nicely done for a big West Coast styled nearly bone dry IIPA.

This is a great IIPA. The work that went into making this clearly shows. The West Coast IPA used to be my favorite until they priced themselves out of my wallet.

esox (1225) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2013
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

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

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.
