Big fluffy airy head sits a top a clean copper body. The lacing was tremendous with thick lines of foam.

The scent is earthy, herbal hops. Sweet caramel malt sits to the background with ever so slight appearances of grapefruit rind.

My palate detects so many fruits that would be atypical of the style. I catch watermelon, kiwi, strawberry and a bitter grapefruit. Caramel malt flavor is evident and supports the whole taste.

For something called Palate Wrecker this is surprisingly clean. There is a bitter side with some astringency but it's not off putting.

I'm not sure why my palate perceived this in such a fashion but Damn I like it.

Poured from the bottle a clear copper color with two fingers of light beige head. Creamy lacing left behind.

Bright, juicy aroma of grapefruit and pine resin.

The taste was no surprise after the aroma. A big juicy bite of grapefruit and pine along with a nice backbone of caramel malts for balance. Finish had a bitter bite to it.

Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation.

This one gives Hopslam a run for it's IIPA money. Big, bold, and full of flavor.
