22oz Bottle into a goblet

A- Pours a clear copper orange with 2 fingers of super fluffy bright white head that sticks around.

S- Really nice pine notes up front with lots of citrus and tropical fruits. For example Red grapefruit, lemon, pineapple, and maybe some mango or peach. Has a really nice astringency to it and almost dankness like you get from galaxy hops. Behind the hops the malts are definitely there creating a nice sweet backbone and hints of caramel. Smells fantastic.

T- When it comes to big DIPA's this one has it all! First thing i notice is a ton of aromatic like tropical fruit flavors the second it hits the tongue. Get a lot of citrus, pineapple, mango, and a small amount of lemon zest. After it settles in the mouth the sweet malts and caramel come out in the middle of the tongue completely balancing everything out and making for a really nice body and mouthfeel to the beer. The best part of the flavor profile is by far the finish, when the beer goes down and you have that moment where the flavor completely shifts and leaves your mouth dry with bitterness and an almost toasted sesame flavor in your mouth like sandpaper on the tongue. Just amazing.

M- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a really nice strong bitter finish that leaves you dry wanting some more.

12 oz. bottle poured into shaped Dogfish pint.

A - Pours a hazy auburn color with a one finger pillow of off-white head. The head retains well and there is a great lacing left down the glass.

S - There is a powerful raw hop aroma of resin and pine. Also some serious citrus. The smell makes my mouth start to water. I catch another whiff every time I put it up to my mouth for a sip, and it gets a little bit danker each time, bordering on a trash aroma.

T - Immediately bitter with a strong pine hop bite. The middle mellows out a bit with some grapefruit, but it quickly returns to the hop assault on the finish. Leaves me with a resinous pine aftertaste that drys the tongue and throat. I enjoy it more and more as it warms and some of the balancing flavors appear.

M - Medium feel with a good carbonation. Suits the style well.

O - I was happy to snag this beer a few weeks ago in VA the first day it came in. There was no question to its freshness, which is important for a beer like this. It isn't quite a one-sided hop bomb, but it isn't far off. It lives up to it's name and I certainly wouldn't sample more beers of the style following this due to the tainted palate you will inevitably experience. It was a bit pricey, but I will get it again. Worth trying if you are a hop-head, but if you are easily turned off by bitterness, shy away. (1,352 characters)

Blistered...that's what your tongue feels like after the first sip of Green Flash's latest DIPA entry. There is a good reason they call this bad boy “Palate Wrecker”, there is nothing smooth or subtle about this brew. It's an in your face HOP A-BOMB! This brew pours a brilliant golden orange with a fingers worth of a white head that leave nice lacing. The aroma is amazing and is very reminiscent of “Pliny the Elder” in that it has big citrus and pine notes to it. My first thought after I tasted it... “What the %^&* just happened to my tongue?” I could feel my pupils dilate as my taste buds were obliterated by a bitterness like I've never tasted before. There is absolutely no malt backbone to balance out the hop bitterness but who cares? That's why I bought this beer, to be blown away by a super hoppy beer and “Palate Wrecker” more than fits the bill. (878 characters)

Pours a dark amber, thick head of off white bubbles. Sticky lace.

Smell is high on the malty caramel. Tropical fruit notes, and a whiff of alcohol.

Big blast of citric rinds. Grapefruit and lemon dominate. Resinous pine covers the tongue. Caramel like malts. Alcohol is present, but not overly boozy.

Oily hop resins coat my mouth. Slightly biting carbonation.

In a sea of DIPAs, Palate Wrecker actually distinguishes itself with it's high alpha assault on your taste buds . Maybe not the most complex brew, but it's raw hop bitterness is sure to please a true hop head. (577 characters)

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

Looks: Quite a deep amber given that there are no crystal malts in here -- nothing but base malts. I guess this comes from the double mashing/double boiling and kettle caramelization. Very clear, low white head.

Aroma: Like sticking your nose in a bag of fresh hops -- dank, fruity, citrus, a bit green. Very fresh & appetizing.

Flavor: Wow, this is just way over-the-top in terms of hops. (I can still taste them the next morning.) It truly is a pale wrecker. Surprisingly drinkable & balanced for all these hops. While drinking it I didn't find it overwhelming at all, just afterwards was my mouth dry & puckered up from the hop exposure. Lots of bright fruit flavors -- peach & apricot as well as the usual grapefruit/citrus flavors. A very solid malt backbone but one that supports without drawing attention to itself. Great big, complex beer!

Mouthfeel was surprisingly light for such a big beer. Right where it should be for a IIPA.

A great beer for the right occassion -- not a beer I will always want, but one I'll definitely seek out for a special occassion and a great way to end the night. (1,104 characters)

1 pt 6 fl oz bomber from FMcD's poured into a tulip glass. Best by 7/2/14

A - Dark ruby red, with a two finger fluffy head that retains for a good while

S - Overwhelming grapefruit, citrus, and hops.

T - Woah, what the hell just happened? Very interesting...How to explain....The grapefruit and citrus from the nose disappear, but the hops remain. Mild sea salt. An undercurrent of dark fruit , bready malts, and alcohol heat. Grass. Bitterness lingers.

M - Mouthfeel is above average. There is some sultry smoothness to it.

O - Saw the name, and I was up for the challenge. Finished the 2nd glass, and now I am getting sleepy. I am afraid to brush my teeth for the fear of what may happen. (697 characters)

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a copper, amber color. Small, off-white foam head that dissipates quickly. Leaves some pretty good lacing.

Smell: Lots of hops, grapefruit, and malts. Good amount of pine. Alcohol isn't masked terribly well.

Taste: "Woah" was the first thing out of my mouth after the first sip. A pretty complex palette here. Lots of hops up front, and a lot more caramel malts in the taste than the aroma. Subsequent sips revealed more of a citrus punch. A little bit of grass/earthiness as well. Alcohol is masked a lot better in the taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-Heavy body. Syrupy. Not a whole lot of carbonation, but it works perfectly here.

Overall: Not quite as good as I thought it was going to be from the buzz, but still a very good IIPA. At 9.5%, it's as easy of a drinker as you'll find, too. (805 characters)

This pours a nice golden amber hue with a full creamy white beige head. From a distance, you could mistake this brew to be one of many golden ales from the mass produced breweries.

But here is where that stops. All you need to be is within a few feet of the opened bottle and you can pick up the aroma of fresh strong hops. As I put my nose into the glass, the hops seemed to get stronger and stronger.

As with many high hopped brews, I could pick up scents of grapefruit along with other citrus. The initial taste was a bit over the top, at least at first. However, the mouthful and the finish was satisfying and lingering.

The second and third sips were the same, the initial taste on the tongue, went quickly to the top of the lounge without hitting some of the other sense spots.

The finish was perfect. I think the only thing that kept me from rating this even higher was that each sip was a bit much.

But the rest was as good as it gets for full hoppy beer

I looked at the Green Flash website and was amazed, no I guess not really to see that the IBU was over 149 for this one!

02/01/13:
I think after tasting about a dozen or so real classy high IBU IPAs, I've come to know exactly what I want and what I am looking for. Make new mistake, Palate Wrecker is a beer that any hop-head should try. Its worth it. I have about 5 more bottles for this year. I enjoyed it, but
not the same way I did a year ago. I guess the term palate-wrecker holds true. It is a big bold beer to taste, but easier to drink than lets say another beer's 120. But my mouth is hanging real dry after drinking one bottle. One bottle, thats it, because when I started to taste other beers, I couldn't pick up the things I normally would have...
Next time, try the ones I want to taste and finish perhaps with the Palate Wrecker (1,812 characters)

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

Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip -2012 release

A: Pours a medium golden/ orange with one and a half finger head that descends into a thin frothy lacing , decent carbonation.

S: Hops with pine resin , slight grapefruit , tropical hues.

T: Straight Pine and bitter hop attacks the tongue with slight sweetness from a decent malt backing .

O: This a tasty DIPA that pulls no punches with it's pine hop combo - and it packs a punch with it's ABV: 9.50 % also .

I would definitely drink this again and may even throw one in the cellar to see if it will get any sweeter when the hops fade a little - (If ever). (613 characters)

4.79/5  rDev +15.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Pours a large light beige head that becomes rocky as it recedes. Head has good retention and leaves heavy lacing. Beer is a copper/orange/golden color. Smells of citrus, most noticably grapefruit and orange, but also with a bit of lemon. Also smells very resiny with a bit of pine. Just a hint of caramel malt.

Taste starts with hop resin, moves on to pine, ends with piney, grapefruit and orange. Has a sticky, resiny, piney, slightly caramel malty finish. Mouthfeel is just less than heavy with moderate carbonation, a little creamy/bready. I love this beer, the great hop flavors along with just the right (but very small) amount of malt. Also, some hops bombs have an oppressive aftertaste, this one does not at all. (721 characters)

Saw this one and has to get it. Didn't t think I could get Green Flash in MD. Tried this one after a couple of hoppy

Pours a deep orange with a thick white head. Lacing last all the way down.

Smell is all hops. Grapefruit, pineapple, orange. In other words all citrus. Some pine, very fresh. Booze is hidden well

All hops here. Hops! Like orange rind and hops. Not much of the bready malt or caramel character of a strong IPA but plenty of hops! If u haven't noticed this beer is all about the HOPS! Very sweet, but it is hidden by the hops.

Very oily, but nice. Really does coat the mouth. Great feel!

Very happy with this one. A bit of malt would have been nice like Nugget Nectar, but then I suppose the hops wouldn't live up to the name. Truly does wreck the palate. Couldn't drink anything close to hoppy. Had a Bud Light the next day and it tasted pretty good. Just a warning. Would have this one again (914 characters)

10 oz. pour into a tulip. Liberty Union, Chester Springs, PA

A- Orange gold. Clear. Light white head, but very thin.

S- Citrus, pine, some toasted notes in the malt.

T- Some pine notes and dry citrus peel. Malt is barely noticeable. Fairly juicy.

M- Medium body, some hoppy boozy burn but less bitter than the name suggests.

O- This was juicier than expected, and less palate wrecking than expected. (404 characters)

Finally getting around to reviewing this bad-boy. Been waiting in the fridge for quite a while.

Appearance 3.75: Great looking beer, pours out a deep golden color. Nice, creamy, 1/2" head. Decent lacing.

Smell 4.25: Great bouquet. Very (of course!) hop-forward, but interestingly, the hops that are forward are all citrus: grapefruit, candied orange rind and almost a crystallized ginger smell.

Taste 4.5: Front is big with a massive kick of hoppiness, but very little sweetness. Middle is where a giant wave of malt and alkaline hoppiness hits you like a mule. But, this is all well-balanced and smooth. Finish is a rain of alkaline hoppiness in the mouth. Very interesting: there is very little outstanding hop flavor with this beer other than a clean hop bitterness. Did they use Magnum? Aftertaste is a citrusy blast, primarily of grapefruit. Also a nice warming feeling from all the alcohol.

Mouthfeel 4.25: Very nice in the mouth. Smooth and with a level of carbonation that helps to balance out the big ABV.

Overall 4.25: Excellent beer. Great hop blending and very flavorful without being overpowering (regardless of its name). Amazingly light given its ABV, this is a delicious brew for a brief sessioning...aw, heck, just drink all four of them, but make it a Friday night. Recommended to all IPA fans. (1,332 characters)

Bottled on 12/17/12
Pour into a duvel tulip.

Appearance: Pours a crystal clear, deep orange with a 2 finger white head with great retention. tons of lacing as expecting.

Aroma: Dank hops straight to the nose! Pine, grapefruit and an earthy, onion-y note(The Columbus hop's calling card) A sweet, honey malt back ground. Smells delightful, yet intimidating.

Taste: Huge, resinous hops right up front; The usual citrus, grapefruit, orange peel, faint lemon zest with a solid, some what chewy malt backbone that really is a great base to showcase the crazy hoppiness. Finishes dry and BITTER!

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, a little oily from the insane amount of hop resin. Medium carbonation.

Overall: An insanely bitter, and tasty IPA that truly lives up to it's name; drinking this is almost akin to chewing through hop cones. What really surprises me so much about this is the fact that it is 9.5%, yet isn't sweet. I was so happy that Green Flash brought this seasonal back from last year. Highly recommended to anyone who loves IPAs and especially excessively bitter ones! (1,079 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a clear orangish/amber, finger and a half of off white head, nice lacing

Smell is big on orange, mango, citrus, pine needle, sweet malt coming through a little more then I would have thought, grapefruit, pineapple. Very floral

Taste is pine resin, tropical and citrus notes, grapefruit bitterness, a little melon like sweetness, sweet malt, a little alcohol on the finish, big pine bitterness toward the end mixed in with a nice earthy hop bitterness

Mouthfeel is on the heavy side of medium, low to medium carbonation, very and I mean very dry on the finish.

Been waiting to try this one ever since Green Flash came to the area. It is good, maybe not as good as I was hoping, but that is probably mostly due to my build um in my mind. Glad I got a 4 pack but due to the price I will probably only pick this one up every once in a great while. (853 characters)

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. (1,730 characters)

Pours a clear orange with a fluffy white head that lingers and laces.

Smells of mango, peach, pine resin, some honey sweetness and grapefruit.

Taste is bitter stone/pitted fruit up front that goes into a more mango/pine/resin middle before ending on a big bitter kick that has tropical and lighter fruit notes. The bitterness is somewhat harsh but not astringent, though, it does take away from the other flavors.

Medium to lighter body with medium to low carbonation works well. The alcohol is present but not out of balance.

A nice, hoppy and bitter beer that really shines through with stone fruit flavors and some pine/resin. (637 characters)

A. Copper / orange / amber appearance with an off white head of average height. Emits lots of carbonation bubbles.

S. Resinous hop oils, veggie like pine and faint malt.

T. Piney, oily resinous hop assault up front with some citrus under all the bitterness. There is some malt to balance things out a bit but Palate Wrecker sure is aptly named.

M. Nice carbonation and creaminess here.

O. I like this beer even though I prefer a bit more malt balance in my DIPA's. This would go really well with spicy food - chile, Mexican, Thai, etc. (541 characters)

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! (486 characters)

Had to bring out something special for review #100!

22oz. bottle poured into a snifter glass. (and shared with others!)

A- a clear light amber/orange with one finger of fluffy head that dissipates quickly. Not much in the way of lacing, and certainly some alcohol legs.

S- Almost a 5 on smell. Booze is hidden well, but a little is there, fresh grapefruit, mango, peach, orange, and papaya with a hint of white pepper. Fantastic.

T- Deceptive. Starts out with a dance between biscuity and slightly caramel malts and moderate bitterness, but the hops/bitterness ramp up in a serious way mid to end of the sip. Hops are largely piney and resinous in nature, but do have a citric tinge to them. The more you drink, the more the bitterness layers on top of itself. Palette Wrecker indeed.

M- I can't compliment them enough here. light to moderate carbonation moves things along but doesn't get in the way, the mouthfeel is medium to medium-full, creamy and just a tad syrupy.

O- This is an outstanding imperial IPA. Haven't had anything like it before, and I congratulate Green Flash on coming up with something new, and not following the crowd. Fantastic. (1,159 characters)

2012 bomber bottled on Dec eighteenth.

A: Pours a deep golden amberish color, with nice 2 finger head. Retains head well with wonderful lacing on the glass.

S: Citrus pine hops,some earthy tones round out the aroma. Fairly straight forward aroma, HOPS. Slight malt overhang as well.

T: Pine is first flavor that hits. Hops in the face, carmel malts coming in. Big citrus/piney hops dominates this taste. Some dankness for the finish.

M: Thick, medium to heavy bodied. Tons of carbonation, bitter dry finish. Really just dries the palate in anticipation of the next sip. Sticky coating to the mouth as it finishes.

O: Excellent beer, not as good as I remembered last year's batch being however. Rather simple hop bomb beer, that's influenced by the West Coast style, but has enough malt backbone to make East Coast IPA fans happy. (839 characters)

Looking a beautiful deep orange/bronze mixture with a nice frothy head. The smell, tropical fruits ahoy! There is a touch of spiciness and onion in the nose as well. Not off putting in the slightest, it actually smells quite wonderful. This thing is practically a Quad IPA if such a thing were true. So the initial and sustained bitterness is not exactly a secret with this beer called Palate Wrecker. The onion hits harder on the taste and fills around the bitterness and burst of tropical fruits. The mouth is actually kind of smooth and creamy but with a huge dry finish. Medium carbonation in play.

It's a huge hop bomb that does what the name implies. I think I need to lie down now. (689 characters)

Palate Wrecker doesn't do this beer. Mother Fucker would be more like it. One of the most unrepentant, aggressive beers I've ever had, and I mean that as a compliment. Smells like pot. Tastes like hops, pine, a little bit of mint. Deadly high ABV too. Really does throw your palate off. Summed up best by the guy next to me at the bar: "Shit, man".

Still regard Green Flash as one of the most underrated breweries in the country. They were not messing around with this beer. (475 characters)

Best By: 06/03/14

A: In a tulip glass the beer poured a dense off-white/yellowish head with mixed bubbles and great retention. As the foam fell into the clear, dark orange liquid, it left a thick coat of lacing on the edge. When agitated the foam would kick up more, no noticeable legs, but the foam might be getting in the way.

S: Big aroma on this just the way I like my IPAs. Dank, reisonous, and pine hop aroma that seem very developed and refined. Slight sweet-tarts like aroma, with a tiny bit of toast malt coming through.

T: Blam! Hope this was the last beer you wanted to drink. Huge bitterness that smacks you in the taste buds and doesn’t let up as you keep sipping. Same reisonous, pine and dank hop flavors coming through. Some tropical fruit flavors coming through also. Very much reminds me of DFH 90 minute but with a different hop variety. In the aftertaste there is some lingering toasty malt flavors but otherwise this beer is all hops.

M: Sticky icky mouthfeel all over the tongues. Low to medium carbonation with a medium body. The hop oils left on the pallet truly do wreck anything else you try to consume afterwards.

O: It lives up to its name. Not something I would drink on a regular basis but a one and done kind of beer. Very tasty and packed full of hop goodness. (1,299 characters)

What a monster! Pours coppery into a Duvel tulip with an off-white head that's quite sticky.

Smells like a citrus-pine monster and tastes just as much. Be careful with this one if you're susceptible to heart burn. ß-acids make this one a stomach wrecker too. Malt backbone provides a sweetness to help drive the citrus notes. This is a beer you should try if you love Ruination.

Note: this is less sweet. (409 characters)
