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

Bottle. Golden color. Aroma of bitter stingy resinous hop, caramel, citrus, pine and malt. Taste has really bitter resinous hop, citrus, herbal pine, grapefruit and a heavy hop burn. Quite the pallet wrecker indeed, nice.

hohops (1023) - Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2017
Appearance- amber and fairly clear, some bubbles, a big, solid off-white head. Aroma- lots of hop resin and tropical fruit, malt, orange juice, pineapple, hint of caramel. Taste- hop bitterness dominates, juicy pineapple, bitter orange, honey-glazed fruit, hops, quite a solid malt presence, full and clingy mouthfeel. Exceptionally bitter lengthy finish. Hints of fruitcake. Very good.

A hoppy twin of Six Point Resin DIPA. Strong, assertive and wonderful. In cans , from the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap as part of a flight. Definitely a huge, complex hop profile. Just not well balanced in my opinion.

Bottle. Pours gorgeous amber with a thick white foam subsiding slow with residue. Scent is gorgeous notes of hickory and ash, along with notes of bubblegum which are probably vanilla. Finish is dry and smooth. Excellent.

Botle from Hippo Beers. Orange brown, reasonable head. Grain malt aroma. Strong sweet barley sugar hop flavour. Smooth with sweet aftertaste. Not as good as the new British Imperial IPAs.

davidezdonz (511) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - JUN 10, 2017
A 12 fl oz bottle with a best before date of 8th August 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass. It was a very nice clear copper amber colour with a two finger off white head that had great retention and left lots of nice sticky lacing. Aromas were earthy, piney with citrus mandarin, sweet candied orange and hints of caramel malt. Tastes of strong bitterness, lots of citrus rind, and whenever they can get through the bitterness, there’s some pine, orange, grapefruit, citrus peel with hints of bready malt and caramel. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall it was nice, but this definitely was a palate wrecker. A whole lot of bitterness, which I can certainly enjoy every now and then, but not too often.

simontomlinson (424) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2017
Off white head stayed on rustic orange, still body. Huge hoppy aroma with bitter/sweet citrus & candy. Medium to full body. Thick, sticky, syrupy & tangy back. Full on hoppy flavours with malt, bitter pith, grapefruit & slightly acidic.

3.5
LazyPyro (1282) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2017
355ml bottle. Crystal clear amber colour with a frothy two finger off-white head. Aroma: hoppy - resin, fruit, pine. Taste: very resinous, piney, ripe fruits, caramel, malt. Very bitter, some sweetness but too much bitter hops for it to balance out. Medium body, soft carbonation. Not bad by any means but this type of DIPA doesn’t really do much for me personally now.
