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

Kestral (506) - rnes, - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear, deep amber with a large, frothy offwhite head. Massive aroma of juicy, mealy hops. Very ripe fruits, grass, grapefruit, syrup or brown sugar. A slight burnt note, liquorice.. a little boozy and kind of peppery. A sip reveals its sort of true to its name. Bitter as hell, but actually seems decently balanced for a second, before the finish kicks in. The finish is pretty brutal though, definitely not one for the sweettooths. It gives off a burnt and peppery feel in the mouth, with resiny bitterness. Body is full, carbonation is calm. I dont know, I think Id like a less heavy version of this. A lighter one, with fresher hop aromas instead of overripe ones, less booze and a more lively body. I get that this is supposed to be a sipper, but a little better drinkability wouldnt hurt. It is a good one though, but its not entering no list of favourites of mine.

Golden amber/brown in a big goblet. Smells strongly of Pine and hops. Tastes great, full on IPA flavor, with a nice underlying hint of spice and some malt. Very good Imperial. Ill have this again From a bottle, within 3 days of purchase.

Pours beautiful clear amber, not much foam but what it has is leaving some beautiful lacings. Aroma is like a hoppy herbal fruit cake. Sweetness is there as you would expect from 9.5% beer, it is covered with some aggressive hops though. Resiny and tropical, actually feeling balanced. Taste reveals super resiny and hop-oily body, sweetness is strong also but covered thick with these hop oils. For me, it also feels drinkable so its actually somewhat dangerous, easy to drink too much of it which at 9.5% is no childs play. Kind of feels like something I wanted right now, so good to try this.

Copper with a thin white head. Aroma is pine resin, catty, eucalyptus. Huge malty/hoppy flavors with loads of bitterness with just enough balancing malt to keep my tongue on its hinges. Long, lovely, bitter finish. Id have another but my palate is now wrecked.
