12 oz brown Green Flash style bottle with shades of Orange being the designated labeling color. Typical brilliance like all other Green Flash bottles. Just love them. Poured into a standard American Pint glass.
A - deep golden-orange body. Slightly off white head poured very nice and sat around the entire way down in form of a soapy thick ring of lace that left a good bit of stick.
S - more traditional hoppiness in the nose than in their other double ipa's. big grapefruit notes slam the front of the nose with chasers of lemon and pine. A hint of hop spice. Lovely, no a perfect incorporation of malt backbone. Light caramel and sweet breadiness with hints of alcohol in the back. Just a great nose!
T - grapefruit, lemon and light orange up front. Bitter pine notes are introduced toward the middle with the sweet but balanced caramel malt taking on a bigger load. Then comes the 'wrecker' part of it. Big grapefruit and fresh lemon give off a sharp bitterness in the finish.
M - full bodied with an exceptional feel and texture. Coating thickness Green Flash style. Alcohol is detected especially as Palate Wrecker warms a bit. Creamy mouthfeel and nicely balanced, but could be a bit too much for someone not into DiPa's that are meant to punish in a good way.
O - Palate Wrecker is a worthy bottling and has some real brilliance to it. I don't favor it as much as the other Green Flash double ipa's, but its still something ill buy every year. This is just another great offering from G Flash. It has equal quality and class to their other double ipa's, but still remains different in character. This is more traditional ipa turned up a few notches. Very enjoyable and well worth the experience over and over again.
