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

Look: Nice dark orange body 1/2 finger white head. Smell: Dank, citrus, very earthy. Taste: Floral citrus, hop pungency, a little malt sweetness, some alcohol in there but not offensive,long bitter finish. Feel: Medium body soft carbonation. Overall: Big dank notes, citrus peel, floral, wood resin, this is a true hop bomb. Even though it isnt balanced, it is very drinkable. That is what makes this brew dangerous at 9.5 ABV. This is worthy.

Deep golden orange color. Thin head and not much lacing. Big bold hop, citrus, floral nose. Dry bitter, earthy, over the top hop attack. Slow mellow finish.

jsmerig (1578) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Pours a golden orange with a tan head and aroma of floral citrus. Taste is malt forward with a fairly deep resin bite of hops. No self-righteous ale, but hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MadRobin (2955) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - MAR 8, 2013
On tap 4 oz. pour at Westover Beer Garden &Haus in Arlington, VA. Clear, amber-orange bright copper with yellow-cream head and very good lacing. Aroma of bitter hops, pine, orange and caramel. Taste of bitter hops, pine, orange and caramel. Medium body and medium carbonation. Very hoppy, but with more balance than the name implies. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Always a win for someone who loves IPAs. This has a huge pine element that never disappoints. You will taste this when you wake up tomorrow.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Pours amber with virtually no head. Nose is tame and dominated by crisp hops and a touch of fruit. Flavor is bitter hops front to back, with decent malt and slight booze between. Not overwhelmingly good or unique, but certainly a good DIPA.

bucs572000 (237) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Poured from a bomber. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, pineapples, and tropical fruit. Flavors are resinous pine, grapefruit, pineapple, orange peel, and citrus. Very big hoppy beer, very dry, actually does have some nice smooth characters also, but the hops stay stuck to your pallet. Its quite bitter but I guess if your going to buy this the name alone would warn you that this beer isnt for a non hop head. Great job green flash!

decaturstevo (6198) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Orange gold pour with creamy off white head and lace. Aroma of large resiny hops. Flavor is sweet malt, biscuits, and resiny hop bitter. A very complex ipa with good balance. Sweet start and mellow sweet finish with that nice hop bitter. Smooth full body with good carbonation. Bottle from Grassroots Natural market in Jacksonville. If it is better in Cali Im ready to go.

radio_nowhere (1472) - Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2014 12oz bottle with a month on it into snifter glass. Orangy-amber color with half-finger of creamy off-white head. Aroma of intense pine and citrus hops with caramel malt in the background. Taste starts out nice enough with the caramel malt sweetness, then its a hop punch. Some fruitiness and spiciness added to the pine/citrus hops. Full body, rich, little oily, thick and bitter as hell. This did not let me down, unbalanced with crazy hoppiness. Awesome.
