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

The bottle has a date of best before 8/29/14.

A - pours out a clear orange producing a one finger off white head with fine and medium sized bubbles. Excellent lacing.

S - I get dank hops right up front, sweet breadyness, pine, grassy, garlic, onion. Nice and pungent.

T - Dankness, pine, onion-garlic, bitterness, bready malt throughout, slight alcohol, tons of lasting and building bitterness.

M - Medium full bodied, soft and oily, with an extreme bitterness that scrubs on the tongue. A unique beer in this category leaving your palate raped from Palate Wrecker!

O - Palate Wrecker is definitely a beer for someone who wants a aggressive hop bomb because it definitely delivers in these two areas. Not for someone just getting into craft beer it will be to much bitterness/hopyness for them. If you like really aggressive hop bombs this one is for you, Cheers!

3.99/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.
