look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a snifter.

A: Pours an extremely cloudy orange-hued gold. This is obviously unfiltered. Has a minimal head that vanishes instantly.

N: Oh yeah. Citrus and tropical fruits right off the bat. Tangerine, papaya, pineapple, navel orange and lemon. This is backed by a massive helping of caramel.

T: The caramel is way more prominent than I would have guessed. Just thick, thick caramel throughout which is covering up the complexities of the hops. I'm having trouble deciphering the different flavors beyond the malt. Upfront appears to be some lemon, grapefruit, and pineapple. This is followed by some mango and finishes with some resinous pine. Perhaps this is worthy of its name.

M: Medium bodied, crisp, dry and a little sticky.

O: This is too malty for a Double IPA. Where as the best (Pliny, Heady Topper, Hopslam) seem to find that happy medium of balance, this fails. Yet this does seem worthy of its name. The alcohol is very well hidden. I'm not blown away, but not bad.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

clear amber pour with 2 fingers of white creamy head, great lacing.

smells of grapefruit, honey, caramel, pine, grass.

taste is bitter up front, a garlic type funk, bitter-sweet like burnt caramel, very earthy, slight citrus (grapefruit) taste.

medium body, very creamy, moderate carbonation, slight burning sensation on the lips.

i can see why it's named palate wrecker, it's so bitter it almost tastes like you're drinking burnt beer. i was hoping fr a tastier brew, hoppy, yet well balanced (at least with the hops... i mean, there are so many varieties you could just mix them all up, get a really high ibu count and have it be delicious!) but i guess this is probably what they were going for. i prefer their west coast ipa - but that's just me.

12oz bottle
Served in a tulip glass

A - It is orange in color with golden highlights. There is not much of an off-white head.

S - The smell seems to be a nice balance of citrus and caramel malt.

T - At first I get the caramel malt. Then comes a rush of citrus, and finally some taste bud crippling bitterness.

M - Medium

O - I don't think I have had a beer this bitter since Ruination.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Draft offering served in a tulip pint. The brew appears a clear copper color with a yellowish stained tan head. Some spotty patches of lace stick to the glass and rising bubbles maintain the cap.

The aromatics are dominated by hop character: pine along with an oily dank to catty quality. A minor backing of toasty grain is present keeping this brew from smelling of straight hop juice.

The flavor is surprisingly toasty with malt and some residual sweetness. After the swallow, a big dank to catty hop element strikes and sticks to the palate. Flavors of pine and trace amounts of alcohol fade into the aftertaste.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Overall not a bad brew but considering the name, its a bit of a let down. I found it to be surprisingly balanced and almost with too much malt character. It is worth a try and something I would enjoy again while fresh.

edit: I now see this brew has been bottled 12/17/12 making this over 5 months old. Guess that really does make the difference for an IPA...

A - An impressive 1/2 inch of sticky rocky head atop of a quite hazy colored amber brown beer. Not bad.
S - Not as piney as I figured which is kind of a relief, citrus and melon hops dominate with a mild bit of sweet malts to the balance.
T - Ok this has to be old because it's hardly bitter. In fact I am kind of digging it since it has a nice bittering hop to woody sweeter malt bill. I want to say it's like a barleywine but that's simply not true. It does have some hops clinging to the palate so it does have some edge. Reminds me of ruination...
M - Light to medium dangerously drinkable despite the age. Not bad.

Overall not that I regret picking up a whole six pack for 10 bucks this is one drinkable old DIPA. Not notable alcohol taste and great balance of hops to malt make for a very drink able brew.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a cloudy gold topped by a finger of off white lather. Crazy slathers of lace cling caressingly.

Herbal bitter and citrus atop a solid base of neutral sweet, some hints of tart yeast beneath it all make a nice aroma.

My, but this is a bitter beer isn't it? Solid dose of herbal bitter overtops all the other flavors of this baby. Pine, grapefruit pith, and that tangy yeast are in there but front and back this is a bitter mothertrucker of a beer.

Light drinking, but a clinging resin of hop bitter stays on the palate through the glass. Spritzy carb adds some carbonic punch to it that this one hardly needs. Super sharp finish, a def palate wrecker, as named.

Like your hoppy pales big and bitter? You will love this one. For me it lacks some of the finer flavors more late hop additions might have added to balance, and isn't as fine as I like.

Reasonably fresh bottle with best by date of 7/2/14.
Full on hop aroma with hop oil, citrus, grass, grass.
One inch head and quite clear with amber (brown) body. Decent lacing.
Full hop flavor resembling the aroma with a stronger hop oil presence leaving a bit of distaste for my buds, but it isn't overwhelming or dominating thus allowing the other more enjoyable flavor to show forth. Solid malt body that balances and blends well.
Pretty big and quite enjoyable body with enough carbonation to accent the hops nicely and working well with the richness of the drink.
A solid DIPA. Too much hop oil and probably not quite as complex hop flavors as others. But this one drinks really nicely.

Not sure if this is the same as Palate Wrecker but here goes....

Consumed at the 2010 Hayward Bistro DIPA Festival. The brew is brewed by Chuck Silva.

Hazy yellow pour with a small white foamy head. A big grapefruit present on the aroma with some malty tones as well. The taste is big time bitter! Pallet wrecker indeed! Grapefruit kick with a small malty backbone, which doesn't come through very well....I like. The bitterness lingers for a long time but if you like grapefruit (like me) there are no complaints. It was listed at 9.5% and did go down a lot smoother than most higher alcohol brews.

Overall I feel this was a nice attempt in the DIPA field and would be definitely worthy for bottling. Another well done brew from the Green Flash crew.

On tap at Alewife the other day.

The beer pours copper amber color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is all DIPA goodness, showcasing considerable pine (and I mean a lot of pine), light tropicl fruit and considerable dry citrus. The nose is intense and attractive in this beer. On the palate, this is jut not a style of DIPA that I tend to like. There is considerable pine and hoppy bitterness, but the beer is also on the sweet side, which only serves to intensify the underlying booziness in this beer. As a result, despite the considerable bitterness in this beer, the alcoholic heat comes on strong at the end. Mouthfeel is medium bodied to full, with a long, bitter, alcoholic finish.

Really a chore drinking this beer down given the blend of pine, sweetness and noticeable alcohol. Have to say I much prefer the regular DIPA from these guys.

Poured from a 22oz bomber to a snifter.

A: Somewhere between copper and gold and perfectly clear-I really like this colour in an IPA. The lacing is just insane. It's like someone put bubble bath in my beer.

S: Overwhelmingly hoppy. No malts or anything else, just spicy hops. Not terribly complex, but I'm kinda impressed that they packed this much hop aroma into a beer.

T: Did I say kinda impressed? I'm really impressed. This might be the hoppiest beer I've ever had that doesn't just seem like a novelty or a gimmick. There seems to be a spectrum of IIPAs. On the one hand there are those that strive for balance and are indistinguishable from American barleywines. On the other hand are those that just go for hop overkill. This one pushes the limits of the latter tendency to a realm I've never experienced, save perhaps in Devil Dancer, which, while interesting, is such a boozy mess as to be utterly undrinkable. This beer, on the other hand, is actually tasty. Grapefruit rind makes an unsurprising appearance, but the onion flavours I associate with beers like Ruination dominate. I know this turns some folks off, but I really enjoy a bit of onion-y hops. This one is spicy and lively.

M: A bit less carbonation than I usually like for this style, but the liveliness of the hops on the tongue keep me from noticing unless I specifically focus on it. Honestly, I have to focus on the mouthfeel to notice it-nothing here enhances the beer, but neither does it hinder the beer.

O: As I said before, most beers that are over-the-top hoppy strike me as novelties, but this one is actually pleasant. Still, it strikes me as a slightly more extreme version of Ruination, which is easier to get and a lot cheaper, so I'm not sure how often I'll seek this one out.

This beer is a medium orange color with just a touch of haze. It forms a clean, pure white head just more than a finger tall that sticks around and leaves patchy lacing in good quantity.
This beer offers a heavy dose of pure, raw pine. There's a good amount of malt and some balance in the aroma that doesn't carry entirely over to the flavor, in which the hops dominate. It's as hoppy as expected, but what's lost in the raw hoppiness is the balance needed and the subtlety. The aroma is big and complex, with a flash of caramel and some citrus as well as rind and sweeter fruits. In the flavor, pine and a bit of grapefruit allowed to peek through dominate everything else.
The body is medium and works to support the big flavor. Malts keep it from being bracingly dry. Crispness is in this one throughout, and there's a good smoothness that pulls into the finish.

Received in a trade from whatsarezaf.

Live review:
12oz bottle pours a nice golden orange with about a half finger of head. Upon opening the bottle you can smell the hops. I knew to expect a lot of hops, but WOW.

During drinking it leaves a Leaves a good lacing throughout the glass. Taste is of hops and pine. Even at 9.5% I don't get a lot of alcohol taste from this beer.

Not sure that I could correctly taste a beer properly after this one as it is a palate wrecker for sure.

12 oz bottle, poured into my Bruery tulip.

Green Flash Palate Wrecker pours a fairly hazy orange, with no real highlights to speak of. The pour yields three fingers or so of just off white foam. Head retention is fairly good, with some chunky, spotty lacing left behind. The nose is nicely potent, with a fair split of grapefruit and pine aromas shining through. The flavor leads off with just a hint of candied sugar and caramel sweetness. Quickly, a raw, aggressive, intense bitterness rolls through, filling up the mid palate. This is the kind of tongue shredding action you need if you're going to call your beer "Palate Wrecker".The hoppy finish isn't as flavorful as I'd like. There's some amount of it, with the citrus component being more orange than grapefruit to balance with the resinous pine notes, but it's not attention grabbing. The mouthfeel isn't all that great, it's a little chewy and a little undercarbonated for the style. Palate Wrecker's got it's flaws, but it's a nice, aggressively bitter imperial IPA.

Picked up a 4 pack at my Round Rock Specs.

Poured an orange/amber into my Chimay chalis...nice off white head and good spotty lacing for the duration.

Lovely smell. Uber-resinous pine, some tropical fruits(mango, cantelope maybe), orange rind. Very nice. Smells super green...super fresh.

Wham! A hop punch in the face...without much malt backing it up. The earthy resiny pine is dripping on this one. Some bitter orange rind seeping through too. Also getting some "oniony" flavor on the backend as well. Not the most balanced DIPA, but I don't think it's supposed to be. A good effort, but all things considered, I prefer Green Flash West Coast IPA to this one.

Bright copper orange in color with a slight haze. Poured with a big frothy off white head that stayed strong to nearly the last sip. Big sheets of sticky lacings on the glass. Smooth and oily feel with subdued carbonation. Tangerine and pineapple aromas with a light biscuit malt undertone. Ripe citrusy tagerine and pineapple flavors upfront with floral hop flavors through the middle that slowly transition to a bitter pine hop finish. Bitterness lingers for a while. The higher abv is well masked by the hop bitterness and light bready malt undertone.

Forms a dome-like head that leaves some streaky lace on the glass. The liquid is actually fairly clear with an amber-orange color. It looks terrific.

Very impressive smell with a grapefruit touch. There's almost no more today aroma but that's okay.

Strong hop flavor that gives it a over-the-top bitterness. The alcohol is also large and the carbonation is accurate for the style. Overall, this is an extreme brew.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a tulip glass. Can't see a bottling date but my local bottle shop just got it in this week so I'm assuming it's fresh enough.

A- Pours a nice bright orange amber with a high white head that sticks around. Great lacing and retention on the glass.

S- You can smell how bitter this thing is. Pretty much dominated by bitter hops and pine with some dried bitter citrus peel but the bitterness in the main thing here.

T- Big bitterness, can't get much else. Ca detect of flavors here some sweetness and bitter orange peel but the bitterness really overrides the complexity here which is a bit of a shame. There is a bit of a burnt rubber flavor on the aftertaste.

M- Nice medium to heavy mouthfeel but the bitterness really makes a heavy sipper.

O- This is the most bitter beer I've had next to super fresh Oracle. But with Oracle there was some more malt in there. I enjoyed most of drinking this beer but the aftertaste and stronger lingering bitterness was a bit too much for me. I would love to prank a few non-hop head beer buddies with a glass of this stuff.

Poured a clear orange with medium to thick white head, some lacing

Big hop smell

Tastes like it sounds, a hop bomb with a lot of bitterness. Comes off a bit spicey with oniony tastes. Definitely has a lingering aftertaste. Huge flavor that goes well with spicy dishes

The mouthfeel is pretty sticky, the taste and body hide the big abv well

This was the third time overall having this brew and probably the best since it was the most fresh of the bunch. I wouldn't mind grabbing another fresh one off a single rack, but wouldn't see ever buying a four pack for myself. I understand if your a big hophead you'll love this one, I just tend to like a bit more balance and less bitterness

12oz bottle poured into my Devil's Backbone tulip. It poured a clear, dark copper color with a frothy white head rising well above the top of the beer. Nice lacing as I drank it.

The aroma shows a strong hoppiness to it with a resiny, orange rind and grapefruit bitterness being the dominant flavor. I get some alcohol mixing with some malty sweetness. It's definitely a hop forward beer though.

The taste has some malty, slightly caramel like flavors to it up front. midway though a very bold resiny, citrus rind, grapefruit hoppiness starts to take over and lasts through the finish. A little bit of candied orange is there as well.

The mouthfeel is a little above average with carbonation being moderate. Overall it was a pretty good beer. It had a pretty bold, bitter, resiny hoppiness to it which fit the name of the beer pretty well.

Pours a slightly cloudy, pale golden orange color with tangerine hues and a half finger frothy white head.  Decent retention, slowly fading into a lasting ring.  Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.

Resinous earthy aroma with grassy/soily pine notes countered by sweet fruit and pale malt.  Hints of pine needle and grass followed by grapefruit and orange peel.  Biscuity malt with graham cracker and sweet booze.

Medium bodied with a blast of dry resinous hops that provide a strong bitterness that lingers into a dry finish.  Earthy pine needle and spruce followed mid palate by citrus/tropical fruit notes that prevent it from becoming one dimensional.  Citrus rind, grapefruit and pineapple followed by biscuity malt and sweet booze.  Thin and a bit watered down but easy to drink.  Strong bitterness is nicely countered by sweeter notes but it's a bit too thin and boozy for my liking.

the first bottle i had, it was the first beer i had yesterday and it was really refreshing -- it had First Beer of the Day edge. this second one, today -- i already had a Dale;s Pale Ale.... and NOW.... it is the Palate Wrecker.

pours a rich amber... it looks resionous... syrupy and builds a small white foam that sticks to the glass. the smell... i am lost -- it is not overpowering, i am getting hops, some sugar and pine.

the taste mellows as you sip.... but DEFINITELY not one for the faint of heart if you don't like the Bitter. i come back to pine and lemon pith... there is a beautiful floral bouquet that hits the top of the palate... but upon your tongue lingers the deep burn of bitterness and alcohol.

if DOUBLE JACK is an A+ .... this is an A- at best. a little too boozy and acidic hops.

Poured into a tulip. The color is dark amber and clear. There is a small bubbly white head.

The aroma has a nice blend of melon and pine. There is a mild undertone of sweetness in the aroma.

The taste is a rich onslaught of sweet hops. The hoppy pine flavor is mostly strong in the finish. The start is sweet and slightly melony. This is full bodied and sticky. I like it, but I'm personally more a fan of drier IPA's. Still; this delivers when fresh.

On-tap during Green Flash night at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Hollywood. Served in a tulip glass.

Persimmon body with ECE/SAE amber highlights. Brilliant clarity. Distinguished creamy and delicate (albeit slender) magnolia head. Glorious lacing, barely broken up by thin strands of legs.

Interesting balance of scents: leather, malt, earth, apricot pits, indistinct hops. Mild pine. Alcohol adds some interesting notes as well.

Having braced myself to be overwhelmed by hops, I was pleasantly surprised to find a good balance on the palate. Certainly hops are here in abundance, but the potently bitter grapefruit and herbal notes are joined by bread crust, licorice, earth, and alcohol. Bitter finish with hints of menthol. The bitterness builds slowly, gradually becoming very intense, though not really out of balance. A real lumbering giant of an Imperial IPA.

Not quite medium-bodied; sticky; well carbonated.

By the end of the glass, the name seems much more apt. Drinkability is rather low compared to Pliny the Elder, 90 minute, etc

Overall, this remains with you for quite some time...

Chilled bottle into a glass, courtesy of largadeer. Thanks, Chris!

A: Pours a clear amber-gold body with a pinky finger of off-white head that breaks apart into a large-bubbled cap. Not much lace.

S: Orange and grapefruit citrus with a heavy pine resin presence. There is a noticeable malt sweetness as well. It's faintly woodsy and tea-like; very interesting.

T, M: Orange, grapefruit, and pine resin up front, with a mild, tea-like astringency in the finish. It's not as clean as I was hoping, with some oily residue that lives up to the beer's name. I find the carbonation only half-cleansing. Medium body.

O: This is pretty solid. I'd buy more if they bottle dated.

Poured from 12-oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Bright copper with a perky, soap-like off-white head that actually sticks around throughout enjoyment leaving thick lace at the edges.

N: The smells are overpowering, right from the pour. It SMELLS bitter. There are notes of pine, grass, and citrus...all very generic, but definitely complex.

T/M: The flavors in this are incredibly complex. There is pine and citrus and....a ton of bitterness--definitely the hint of onion-like hop notes. The malt backing is substantial and truly helps to balance out the bitterness, even toning down the nugget and/or summit hops' oniony flavors. The alcohol is evident but not hot in the medium body.

This is an excellent beer with an extreme complexity....but there is nothing really "special" about it. The beer is super bitter with lots of different flavors, but not one that stands out as excellent. It is an excellent sipping beer, but not one that would necessarily want to have on home-draft even though I am primarily a Imperial IPA fan. Overall, this beer just really does not do it for me.
