12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear deep orange with an off-white head that quickly thins. Unusual but interesting lacing.

S: Piney and citrus, mostly citrus. Not as strong as expected, but pleasant.

T: Huge juicy citrus followed by a piney grapefruit bite. Bitter finish, then a creeping dryness. Alcohol well hidden. An amazing citrus to pine journey in seconds.

M: Medium carbonation. Full bodied. Palate still intact.

O: The freshest Palate Wrecker I've had, and by far the best. The juicy citrus was far more pronounced, the hop bitterness less harsh, and the alcohol more concealed than in previous tastings. A wonderful hop bomb. Highly recommended if you can find it now.

Burnished copper with ruddy highlights and an orangey head of oily foam that settles slowly, leaving sheets up the insides of the glass. Subtle aroma of coarse brown sugar, ruby grapefruit, tangerine and orange rind pith, plus some honey notes.

A kick of big fat hops right upfront, pithy and resiny. Tons of citrus and pine, all at once flavorful and sticky and bitter. Flavors of tangerine and grapefruit, pine and orange rind. Bitterness lingers and hangs in the sides of the cheeks. Subtle malt rides beneath acting as a balance to the hops, but rides far beneath. Mouthfeel is a tad slick, but warm and tingly from the ABV. Carbonation tickle helps the hops pop. Great beer, a hophead's delight for those that like 'em bitter.
