Green Flash Palate Wrecker
From 1/22/14 tasting notes...
Enjoyed on draft at Benno's in West Allis, WI. This was a 10 oz tapper. Served chilled...
A) This was an amber brew, with a small white head. The head stuck around for the duration, and there were a few rings of lace clinging to the glass. Nice...
S) Indeed, the hops is strong in the aroma. Sticky pine and citrus rind primarily. Light floral and tropical fruit as well.
T) Kaboom... It's a hop bomb... Pine, grapefruit, orange peel. Strong lingering bitterness is in store for you. I don't think perfect balance in the flavor department was the intention here, although the malt base does provide some sweetness. Additionally, the alcohol is well hidden. I wouldn't have guessed this is a 9.5% ABV.
M) Medium bodied with peppy carbonation. My palate was coated in sticky hop bitterness. Finishes dry with some citrus rind and pine.
O) A must try for hop heads... Did it leave my palate scorched and destroyed for the remainder of my visit to Benno's? Well, not exactly, but I did eat two corn dogs, and some chips before enjoying my next brew. Glad to recommend...

Had on draft at the brewery earlier this year, and found in bottle locally. If youre a fan of hops, this is your beer. It is on the pricier side, but well worth it. It is a beer to drink slowly and enjoy. For my first BA rating/review, what better beer to give such high marks. Amazing aroma and a delicious bite! Fantastic!

Good God, this is intense stuff! This beer is characterized by big hop and malt flavor, super boozy. Nice citrusy flavors from start to finish. Awesome copper color, beautiful beer. Significant amount of head with thick lacing. Never disappointed by Green Flash.
