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

rajendra82 (1073) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2013
The body was a deep orange shade of amber, and formed a two finger thick head in the tulip glass. The aroma was very piney and spicy and very much in line with the West Coast style. The taste is where the complexity started to show up. There was a mouth puckering, tobacco like bitterness up front which stayed throughout the taste. The initial shock of bitter was followed by some tropical fruits, such as mango and pineapple. The finish was spicy, with notes of ginger and clove. The beer felt very dry and did not show much of the character of the malt. This definitely lived up to its name, as I cant imagine having another beer after this, except if its another Palate Wrecker.

Another solid IPA offering from Green Flash. Rich hop flavor that provides solid bitterness from start to finish. Well balanced and enjoyable to drink.

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.
