I was introduced to this beer at the Beer Store over on Second Street Pike (Philly Suburb) I was initially a little skeptical because I'm not really in to hoppy beers but this one is so well balanced with equal hops and malt as well as alcohol. Really tasty and fun to drink.

Se - Bottle poured into a Foothills pint glass
App - radiantly amber with a thin white head
Smell - Citrus, grapefruit and piney, In my opinion it's the best part about this beer
Taste - Hoppy and not quite as malty as what I typically go for in a beer that is over 9%. That being said the hops are not too overpowering by any means and while at first taste you might be fooled into thinking that this beer has a low drinkability, but I feel like that vanishes shortly after.

2/21/13 Green Flash | Palate Wrecker | On Draft
On draft at Churchkey in DC
Appearance- Beautilful copper in color, white lacy head, translucent
Aroma- Wonderful hop notes, citrusy and piney, grapefruit, subtle toasted bread
Mouthfeel- Moderate Co2, slight coating, medium bodied, a little oily
Taste- with each sip it definitely "wrecks your palate". You get wave after wave of grapefruit/piney hops. Enough malt character to keep it interesting, but not enough to make it an exceptional beer
Residual- pleasant bitterness, grapefruity and sweet
Overall- A solid DIPA. Worth a try, but odds are I would not seek this one out again. It's a borderline hop bomb in my opinion. Not quite so hoppy that you straight up avoid it, but hoppy enough to make it a one and done. There are a lot of better DIPAs out there, but I can see why this has a following.
Serving type: on-tap
