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.

A- Cloudy golden amber with a slightly off white one finger head that leaves the glass after a few sips.

S- Wow. This smells hoptastic! The scent is primarily floral with hints of citrus. There are some caramel maltiness as well, though moslty covered up by the aggressive hop profile.

T- This thing is bitter in the best way. Upfront I get mostly citrus flavors, followed by a malty floral finish. I enjoy brews that are heavy on the hops so I love this, but anyone weary of the bitterness would not like this.

M- Light carbonation. The texture is not too heavy, but is is definitely not light.

O- Green Flash is killing the IPA game. They know what they are doing out there in San Diego. Bravo!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A- Dark golden amber and clear. One finger head leaves soapy halo and moderate lacing. Looks tough.

S- Strong citrus in the form of grapefruit orange and lemon. Nice and zesty.

T- More bitter than the citrus notes in the nose. The fruit grove is replaced with a bitter dank earthy hop blast. The malt balance is there backing this offensive as should any quality brew. An abundance of flavor coming together nicely.

M- Slightly heavy but at 9.5 what do you expect. Leaves a waxy light waxy feeling.

O- A quality beer from a quality brewer. A hop forward IPA with attitude. Hop heads rejoice!
