4.17/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

Pours a clear copper, topped with a thick finger of off-white head. This maintains a frothy ½ finger, ringing the sides of the glass with sticky lacing. The aroma is floral, piney, herbal, and spicy in the nose, with a zesty feeling grapefruit presence and notes of fresh backed biscuits from the malts across the back. This has some nice hoppy power to it in the nostrils.

The taste starts off with a bold hoppy blast of grapefruit, resins, and spice, which lingers hard on the finish. Soft herbal tones, light tropical fruit, and tight sweet grains help to balance out some of the aggressiveness out here but man, that spice and pine sticks to the tongue with some strength. The mouthfeel is fuller bodied and really fills the mouth with a big slick oily creaminess that moves rather easily for the size. There is a bit of light crispness to this, while the alcohol, although not stinging, does really pop the assertiveness of these hops.

My previous experience with this beer had been on cask during a visit to San Diego and I have to say that I really enjoyed this more here out of the bottle. I still feel that it’s a little too big overall but the fresh hoppy power of this wins out in the end, helping cover up the high ABV. This is a nice representation of the West Coast style. (1,328 characters)

Green Flash Palate Wrecker
12 oz. bottle, freshness dated "03/29/13"
$5.50 @ The Beer Shoppe, Ardmore, PA

"Palate Wrecker" pours a mostly clear orange-amber body beneath a creamy head of off-white/light-khaki foam. The head retention is fair, and it leaves some nice spots and splashes of lacing about the glass.

The aroma is bold, delivering copious notes of citrus, tropical fruit, sap/resin, and soft pine/spruce that's not unlike a damp forest floor beneath tall evergreens. There's a hint of light floral-alcohol, and a delicate drip of sharp mint as well. Whatever malt that's there, it doesn't quite come through clearly, but rather acts as support for the hops.

Not surprisingly, the malt acts as support for the hops in the flavor as well. This beer is all about hops. Pacific northwest hops to be specific, and probably some high-alpha varieties as well. It's initially citrusy and pineapple-like. The citrus is like rind-like (chalky and raspy), although there are elements of grapefruit juice, and some citron and limon to it as well. I'm not sure what other fruits I might be getting, but I'm thinking tangerine, apple, and papaya. Following that you'll find the evergreens that could be pine, spruce or poplar - or even a blend - depending on where you're at in the glass. Each subsequent sip brings out more pine and sap as it builds on your palate. So note - this is not a beer to drink quickly if you want to find its complexity as it will indeed ruin your palate within the first twelve sips. The first sips will be fruity and citrusy. The next will be piney, and increasingly resinous and bitter. Following that you'll find a bit of malt, and some grass. Throughout all of that the bitterness builds to the point that you reach a threshold, and apart from the bitterness sticking at the back of your throat it hardly seems as bitter as it was on your second or third sip. By mid-glass the 9.5% alcohol by volume will have taken effect, and that throws you a bit as well. Thankfully, even though it's present throughout, it doesn't throw any harshness other than what's expected. And in all honesty, answer me this: if a beer as aggressively hopped and bitter as this was just 5% would you really want to drink it? No, I didn't think so (nor am I even sure that that's a possibility as you really need the malt and alcohol to hold the hop bitterness and flavor).

This is pretty much a special occasion beer because once you drink it you're done. Every beer you have afterward will taste different than you remember. Even food that you have will be somewhat skewed. It's an exercise in going all out. And there's a certain joy in that, but at the same time it's definitely un-balanced. It has to be. It can't be anything else. It's completely balanced towards the hop resins, for both bitterness and flavor. So how to review it number-wise? I'm not sure. I'm just going to go hedonistically and see what happens. Cheers! (2,942 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

On-tap 3/31/2012 at Track 84, in Warwick, RI served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep golden brown color, with a short dense off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick on the glass.

S: The aroma contains fruity citrus, floral hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a piney bite of hops bitterness followed by sweet flavors of citrus and caramel. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and provides a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, strong kick, good representation of style, although there are better 2IPA’s out there, this is still a solid beer to drink for a long time. (783 characters)

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Clear, orangey amber in the wine glass. Nice head. Carbonation is a little coarse. Mouthfeel is slick. Big hop smell.

Intense hop flavor and aroma, as you might suspect. Rather dry and tends toward astringency after a few sips.

Ridiculously strongly hopped, which I guess is the point. A little sweet, and plenty of malt as well. It's a pure hop intensity, fruity and resiny. Flavor keeps going and going. It's kind of like bitter candy. Definitely too much of a good thing, though it is almost drinkable. Hot with alcohol and spicy hop acids.

I wonder if anyone at Hamilton's has tried this out in the dog bowl. From the 12 oz bottle bought at Baron's Marketplace in San Diego. (681 characters)

The nose on this one is pretty nice. Shows good character without getting obnoxious and nice subtle tones that still give enough to keep it interesting. Flavor profile is definitely a palate wrecker as it's intense and rich and thick and leaves a lot on your tongue. But not so out there that its a laborious drinker. I can dig it. (331 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours an effervescent honey color with a finger of cream colored head. Good lacing & average head retention

S: Pine, grapefruit with a little breadyness, plus some booze

T: Follows the nose, in your face hoppyness up front, along with a little dryness. Some breadyness & a touch of caramel as this warms with a ton of grapefruit. Finishes with grapefruit peel, breadyness, pineyness

MF: Fairly thick, slight carbonation, nice balance

A super DIPA, love the agressive hops & super balance lying underneath, easily one the best DIPAs I've had in a while. I've been waiting for a hop ride like this for a whilw, well done Green Flash! (635 characters)

First had: on tap at Broad Axe Tavern, Ambler, PA

Clear amber pour, with a small white head that left some splashes of lace on the glass. As would be expected, the aroma was dominated by hops, citrus pith and pine resin, with hints of a caramel malt backbone bringing up the rear. Lots of orange and grapefruit in the taste, resin, pretty intense WC hop bitterness, with a little tropical fruit and malt sweetness to take the edge off, but the hops were clearly in charge. Maybe not as intense as their regular IIPA, though I'd like to try them back to back to test that theory. Medium body, appropriately carbonated. Maybe a little intense for greenhorns, but a good brew for hopheads. (687 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Bottled 01/08/13. Reviewed live. Expectations are above average; Green Flash has yet to really impress me and I've heard mixed reviews about this one. 1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a conical Samuel Smith's pint glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. I've never had this before.

Served straight from the fridge but not quite as cold as the fridge usually renders beers. We'll call it sufficiently chilled. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

Not paired with food.

A: Pours a four finger beige colour head of nice cream and decent thickness, and great retention (~6 minutes) for the high ABV. Body colour is a clear translucent textbook copper. Vibrant. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Par for the style, but the head is impressive for the ABV. Other than that, there's nothing unique or special here. Indistinguishable from most other beers in the style.

Sm: Pale malts, floral hops, heavy hop oil, and light hop nectar. Shockingly light; not subtle, just light. Reading the label, I'm pleased to see they describe it as "complicated." Not complex - complicated. A touch of inadvertent honesty, perhaps? It's not fresh (in spite of being a mere 3 weeks old), but it does come off as pleasant.

T: Okay...unnecessarily heavy hop bitterness is overwhelmingly dominant. A hint of buried hop nectar, a hint of very buried citrus. Corrupted oily hops really attack the palate in a most unpleasant manner. Even the pale malt body is drowned out by the assault. Sweet jesus, that is really really imbalanced. I'm forced to appreciate it; it's sort of a master class on how not to brew an IPA. Grapefruit. No yeast character - and surprisingly no alcohol - comes through. Lacks complexity. There's no subtlety here at all.

Mf: Scratchy, oily, and coarse. It's as pleasant as it sounds. Overcarbonated. Too thick for the lack of flavour. Not at all refreshing. Horrible palate presence.

Dr: This is exactly how you shouldn't go about approaching the style. It lacks the key element: balance. This represents precisely what is wrong with IPAs - especially when executed by American breweries: it's not a dicksizing competition with hop content or IBUs. A good IPA has masterful balance and is refreshing. This is neither. Drinkable, if low quality. It's more difficult to drink than your typical DIPA. Though it does hide its ABV alright. A huge disappointment from Green Flash. Maybe the brewers could drive over to Alpine and learn a thing or two about balance. Is Silva Stout as highly hyped and yet as poorly brewed as this is?

I've been craving some West Coast hops, here we go...amber glowing copper body with a big billowing off white head, leaves fine speckled lacing. Aroma earthy, citrus grapefruit layers of hops, dank mary jane, you name a hop character or aroma and I'm sure you can find it in this beer. The one characteristic that reigns supreme in this beer is the grapefruit pith it just flows out of the glass, flavor wise it borders as a barleywine big assertive alcohol with malts wrapped around it. Gotta love the West Coast hops, more waves of bitterness and hop flavors including more grapefruit bombs, earthy dirt, and again marijuana. Evident sticky hop oils on the palate yet lighter bodied than most DIPA/B wines out there they kept the palate surprisingly clean for this type of a beer, moderate carbonation works with this type of beer excellent feel to it. Overall I'm impressed I had it on draft a couple years back at a Penn Fest and it blew my mind, I'm not saying I have the same feeling as I did then but it's damn good. (1,023 characters)

Forms a dome-like head that leaves some streaky lace on the glass. The liquid is actually fairly clear with an amber-orange color. It looks terrific.

Very impressive smell with a grapefruit touch. There's almost no more today aroma but that's okay.

Strong hop flavor that gives it a over-the-top bitterness. The alcohol is also large and the carbonation is accurate for the style. Overall, this is an extreme brew. (418 characters)

From 12/21/10 notes. Had on tap at Rattle n Hum in NYC.

a - Pours an amber color with one inch of white head and light carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, lemon, oranges, grapefruit, and fruity malts.

t - Taste follows the nose. Lots of citrus hops and grapefruit, some bitterness up front but not as much as I expected.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation,

d - A pretty good DIPA. Lots of nice citrus hops and not too bitter. Would have again. (466 characters)

Received in a trade from whatsarezaf.

Live review:
12oz bottle pours a nice golden orange with about a half finger of head. Upon opening the bottle you can smell the hops. I knew to expect a lot of hops, but WOW.

During drinking it leaves a Leaves a good lacing throughout the glass. Taste is of hops and pine. Even at 9.5% I don't get a lot of alcohol taste from this beer.

Not sure that I could correctly taste a beer properly after this one as it is a palate wrecker for sure. (484 characters)

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a nice 2 finger dense cream colored head with fantastic retention that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Some nice spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of big orange, caramel, pine, biscuit, grapefruit, mango, floral, honey, light herbal, and a touch of alcohol. Nice and well balanced aromas with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, pine, caramel, honey, biscuit, herbal, floral, and mango. Fairly intense pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, honey, pine, biscuit, and caramel on the finish for a good bit. Despite the intense hoppiness, there is a nice malt backbone to balance it out. Good flavor balance as well. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a creamy, sticky, and slightly slick mouthfeel. Smooth to drink but it is still a sipper. Alcohol is fairly well hidden with only a good sized warming after the finish. Overall this is an excellent and highly enjoyable DIPA. Nice malt balance and hop flavor profile. (1,056 characters)

12 oz. bottle poured into a glass snifter.

A: Pours a dark copper color with a slight yeast haze; likewise, the bottom of the bottle remains coated with a thin layer of sediment. The brew is topped with a one finger off-white that has limited retention, but it leaves lots of sticky lacing on the glass.

S: Very hop-forward, with suggestions of grapefruit rind, orange juice, and grapefruit juice; rather earthy and floral too. The rich and complex aromas of multiple hop varieties largely mask even the alcohol esters. 3.75

T: Some sweetness is there but this is very much a bitter brew, and the bitterness seems to build with repeated tasting. There is less citrus here than in the nose.

M: Full body; Medium+ carbonation; a bit harsh and acidic, presumably from the high hop load and ABV.

O: As warned, this strongly flavored beer assaults the senses and leaves a long-lasting bitter aftertaste with hints of grapefruit and pine. Quite bitter even among DIPAs. A less balanced alternative to brews like Hopslam, Stone Ruination or Hop Stoopid, all of which I definitely prefer to this strong and challenging beverage. (1,128 characters)

Pours slightly hazed amber with a thin, lasting head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of pine/resin with caramel and a hint of honey.

The taste is of huge pine/resin with strong sticky caramel. It has a hot, spicy, bitter finish.

It has a thick, full body.

Well, it is aptly named. Plenty of piney hops with a strong sweet backbone that pulls back to leave a spicy, bitter bite. A strong sipper, here. (401 characters)

On tap at CK. Beer is amber and clear with a soft white cap of medium and small bubbles, nice retention but low carbonation, looks nice.

Aroma is strong in my face with some nice earthy CTZ hop aromas. Not sure what hops exactly but it has that sense, mild malt sweetness cuts through as well.

This beer is bitter, the finish isn't too dry but it is quite bitter. Mildly dry I suppose, medium in body to start out with, beer is chewy with resinous hops, nice throughout, if you like your IPAs big and hoppy, this is a good one. (529 characters)

A: Pours a slightly hazy deep golden orange in color with light amounts of visible carbonation and some burnt orange + copper highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy off-white head that very slowly reduces to a large patch of very thin film and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of citrus/orange rind hops along with some much lighter notes of pine hops and just a hint of caramel malts.

T: Light amounts of caramel malt sweetness initially but that is quickly overtaken by the flavors of the hops - citrus/orange rind and Light hints of alcohol are present in the finish along with the moderate to strong amounts of bitterness.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: As the name would indicate, this is a seriously hop heavy beer and slightly out of balance (tons of bitterness compared with just a light hint of sweetness). This is not the easiest of beers to drink both from the hop intensity and the not so hidden alcohol. Not sure I would have another of these but glad to have tried it. (1,191 characters)

Draft offering served in a tulip pint. The brew appears a clear copper color with a yellowish stained tan head. Some spotty patches of lace stick to the glass and rising bubbles maintain the cap.

The aromatics are dominated by hop character: pine along with an oily dank to catty quality. A minor backing of toasty grain is present keeping this brew from smelling of straight hop juice.

The flavor is surprisingly toasty with malt and some residual sweetness. After the swallow, a big dank to catty hop element strikes and sticks to the palate. Flavors of pine and trace amounts of alcohol fade into the aftertaste.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Overall not a bad brew but considering the name, its a bit of a let down. I found it to be surprisingly balanced and almost with too much malt character. It is worth a try and something I would enjoy again while fresh. (903 characters)

On tap at the Common Table in Dallas. The beer pours a clear gold/yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the hops. I get a lot of orange citrus and pine notes, as well as some caramel malt to keep things balanced. The flavor is definitely all about the hops. I get a ton of bitterness as well as some bitter oranges and pine notes. The caramel malt is hidden in the background and plays a secondary role. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. (467 characters)

On draft at Churchkey in D.C.

The beer is light golden and clear with a soft white head. The aroma brings a potent dose of hops, light citrus and pine, and alcohol. Upon my first sip I decided this beer is aptly named. Massive hop character does indeed assault the palate. Alcohol presence is rather forward, and steers me clear of a second helping. This is decent, with some nice things happening, but I prefer a more elegant showcase for the hops, instead of being bombarded with an intensely hoppy alcohol bomb. Personal preference perhaps, but I feel this is middle of the road (or a slight step above) for a DIPA today. (625 characters)

Pours a dark, golden orange with a big, off white, foamy, dense head that has decent retention. The nose is faintly herbal, mildly grassy, and has an underlying bready aroma. The flavor is bready and malty up front, but it quickly changes to herbal, bitter, citrusy, piny hops. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, smooth, and well carbonated.

I like what Green Flash tried to do here. As a hop head I will always promote the extreme. The flavor is solid and really does showcase almost all of what hops can do. It's not nearly as hoppy, bitter, or intense as the name would lead one on to believe, but overall it's a good DIPA. (632 characters)

A bottle from Jersey into a Green Flash Pint Glass.

Green Flash Palate Wrecker pours a golden/orange looking liquid that glides into the glass smooth like creating a inch of loose off white foam leaving some specs here and there. A nice amount of activity and bubbles.

Smell is all west coast hop scent like expected. A very nice bouquet of citrus rind, grapefruit, mango etc. Some floral hop scent comes up with some biscuit like scent coming from a light malting. This smells delicious, if that makes sense.

Taste is up there with the big boys on the left coast. A nice blast of citrus mixing into some pine ending with a light bready malt that drowns out the hops on the finish without too much sweetness. Well rounded but the pine lingers in the aftertaste, which is not a bad thing.

Feel is at about medium with ample carb, there is some bite to this from the bubbles. Palate wrecker is bitter and would be a lot to handle for a newbie, but a craft drinker with experience could handle this. A lingering aftertaste, with just a touch of the 9.5% coming out. This would go well with some spicy food.

I gotta say between this and Rayon Vert, Green Flash has been pumping out some great new beers in a 12oz format at affordable rates. I could drink two 12ozer's of this in a sitting no problem. I am constantly impressed by west coast IPA's in general, I just wish more east coast brewers would catch up. (1,411 characters)

12oz bottle poured into my Devil's Backbone tulip. It poured a clear, dark copper color with a frothy white head rising well above the top of the beer. Nice lacing as I drank it.

The aroma shows a strong hoppiness to it with a resiny, orange rind and grapefruit bitterness being the dominant flavor. I get some alcohol mixing with some malty sweetness. It's definitely a hop forward beer though.

The taste has some malty, slightly caramel like flavors to it up front. midway though a very bold resiny, citrus rind, grapefruit hoppiness starts to take over and lasts through the finish. A little bit of candied orange is there as well.

The mouthfeel is a little above average with carbonation being moderate. Overall it was a pretty good beer. It had a pretty bold, bitter, resiny hoppiness to it which fit the name of the beer pretty well. (845 characters)

12 ounce bottle, from DeCicco's in Ardsley, NY. Part of a four pack for $14 and change...no bargain here...and no freshness info that I can find, c'mon GF great beer but this style cries out for some consumer friendly information...anyway..pours clear, medium amber, lite tan head, that stays, froths and leaves nice, fine and scattered lacing. Nose is the expected blast of fresh and gooey hop goodness, with resins, citrus and pine infused hop cones coming to mind.

Full flavor, full and again fresh tasting hop crunch. Malty and quite smooth and soft under coating. Hop lovers rejoice go get and enjoy.

Close your eyes and you are in San Diego, enjoying a fine example of the local nectar. Well done and worth the price of admission. (739 characters)

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ,

A: Pours a dark amber with a medium white head, good retention, leaving lots of lacing.

S: Pine forest, it smells like a Christmas tree.

T: While the pine is overt in the smell, the flavour gives more of a balance in the various hop elements. Lots of pine along with a pink grapefruit character and a bit of booze. Certainly an interesting flavour.

M; Nice full body, full of hop resin, aftertaste didn't last as long as I thought it would due to the name, but nice.

D: Another real good beer from Green Flash, I'd definitely have it again, but I'd make sure to make it my last beer of the day. (624 characters)
