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

Poured from bomber into 16.5oz tulip glass. Beautiful beer. Deep copper color. Head sticks around for a while. I just stared at it for a while. Really a beautiful looking beer. Aroma is o pungent hops. Grapefruit and pine are the predominant aromas. Tastes is loaded with hops. Again mostly grapefruit and pine with tropical fruits and a small amount of malt. The finish is extremely bitter and lingers for what seems like an eternity. Really interesting and complex brew. I would drink it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

clear coper color, aroma of grapefruit, tropical fruits, pine, flavors of pungent grape fruit, pine, caramel, taste kind of like gin spirits, dry lingering finish, finish, not as much of a malt backbone that i expected but a very solid beer, definitely wrecks the palate

Out with the Haugens in Peteluma. Long lasting, thick white froth. Enticing citrus, including orange aroma. Flavor matches well, with a nice drying finish.

Extremely bitter. Huge hop flavor with a very dry palate. Definitely lives up to its name. Overwhelms most anything you may pair it with. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 bottle. No date but consumed a week after purchase at state line MD. Beautiful lasting head and good lace on this golden clear beer. The initial aroma is deep ripe tropical fruit giving way to a strong to moderate catty cheese hop funk. Taste is very sweat caramel malt. When cold it does quickly to an intense pure bitterness. As it warms that becomes more grapefruit pine and the hop funk. The bitterness at first though it exceptionally pure. The palate may not be wrecked but it is very soft full soapy and mouthwatering. One hell of a beer though not an everyday choice.

Amber color with a huge hop aroma. Smells of brown sugar and grass. Pine needles and tree in the taste.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep gold with soapy white head. Aroma of over ripe, some what pungent grapefruit with a malty background. Flavor is sweet maltiness, hoppy, piny earth, balanced, aggressive bitterness. Somewhat heavy mouthfeel with medium carbonation....Overall, good stuff!
