COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Palate Wrecker was originally brewed for the Hamilton’s Tavern 2nd Anniversary celebration. It’s the most complicated West Coast–inspired IPA we have ever brewed—mashing 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 isn’t for everyone, only the real hop heads!!!). Cheers! - Chuck Silva - Brewmaster - Green Flash Brewing

omhper (25570) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2012
Bottled at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy pale amber, rich firm head. Tremendous aroma of swety tropical fruits and pink grapfruit. Medium-full body and soft, inviting mouthfeel. Loads of juicy hops. Intense, yet pleasant. Severe but never punishing bitterness. Green Flash has a way of making also very extreme beers acceaaible and drinkable.
