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

In a snifter this beer was a beautiful clear amber color with just a small rim of head, which lingered.

A lot of hops in the aroma. Herbal/piney hops, a little citrus. A touch of sweet malt.

Mostly a herbal/pine taste. Some grapefruit. Bready background.

Hop bomb. Alcohol well-hidden. Great beer for hop heads.

4.46/5  rDev +7.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 oz, bottled on 1/1/13, purchased January 2013.

A - Pours golden and clear, a rocky off-white head, 1-finger high, dissapated to a thin lasting layer, fingers of lace

S - Floral (reminds me of my knock-out roses), some pine, faint grapefruit and just a little pepper

T - A big clean hoppy beer, a little sweetness primarily upfront, but faintly underneath to the end, hoppy bitternes middle to end, somewhat unbalanced towards hops

MF - Medium body, dry, sharpt with a lasting bitterness on roof of mouth and tongue.

O - Generally hides its 9.5% ABV well. Reminds me a lot of a SN Celebration, but with more floral notes up front. Need to do a side-by-side.

4.56/5  rDev +9.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a clear copper color , with a fluffy white head.
Aroma of hops is very powerful, with hints of grapefruit , pineapple and mango.
The taste... amazing! Hops stand up front offering a dominating bitterness , with the classic west coast IPA characteristics. The bitterness lingers on the palate.
Mouth feel is medium bodied with a crisp dry finish.
Overall, I really enjoy this beer, in fact Palate wrecker is one of my all time favorites. The only bad part is that it tastes so good that is really hard to drink them in moderation... 9.5 abv is only apparent after you've had a couple .
