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

Appearance: Clear amber, good head.

Smell: Citrus, dank odor.

Taste: Big time bitter from the start to finish. A little bit of sweetness peeks through. Dry, bitter finish.

Overall: Very bitter, but very drinkable double IPA from Green Flash. I'll have to compare it to their Imperial IPA that's in my fridge. This definitely will give you your hop and bitterness fix.

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.
