This is a great hoppy ipa! The look of the beer is an amber color and its crystal clear with nice white head. The smell is of pine, citrus, grapefruit, and caramel from the malt. The taste is hoppy, sweet caramel, dry, bitter, piney, citrus, and grape fruit. The mouth feel is nice with great carbonation and bitter that goes on forever. I thought this might be too hoppy but it is perfect bitterness for hopheads. It is also well balanced with its nice caramel malt character. Awesome!

S: hops hops hops. Very slight malts. Citrus, very.floral, fruits

M: medium bodied, nicely carbonated for the style. Resiny piney

I've had this on draft at brewery, and just had a bottle, review from bottle. I love this beer, when i first had a sample I thought, wow, as good as Hopslam. So finally they distribute this in bottles to VA and I could do a side by side, it stand right up there. Nice head, a bit of lacing, not no too much head. Golden color, a hint of orange.

The smell on this is amazing, beautiful hops but not over powering.

The taste, first taste the hops punches you in the mouth, in a good, way, them mellows out, then comes back for more. This is all in the first taste. It's got a bit of a heavy mouthfeel.

Overall, this beer is fantastic, I noticed as it warmed up, it got better and better, I would have one of these a day. Anyone who is a hop head needs to add this to their must try.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip

A - Pours a hazy copper with 2 fingers of head with great lacing

S - Tropical fruit and piney hoppyness

T - Holy crap this is abrasively hoppy! This is easily the most hop forward beer I've had, nearly no malt to speak of. Finishes just as hoppy as it started.

M - This beer starts eating at your tongue at first drop. Moderate carbonation with a light mouthfeel.

O - God I can't get enough of this beer. And it really earns it's name of Palate Wrecker. I'm a hop head and I could care less about balance right now; give me more hops and more Palate Wrecker!

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!

Wow this is a nice beer. Hints of honey and lots of hops. Similar to hopslam but I might actually like this better. Too bad its $15.99 for a 4-pack near me. definitely worth it for a treat once in awhile. If you have not tried this I definitely recommend it.
