look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A - Three fingers of off-white head over a glowing clear amber body. Great retention and lacing.

S - Lots of citrus

T - Massive amounts on hoppy citrus, pine and floral notes, bordering on soapy. Malts are hardly noticeable, earthy and slightly sweet. Hop bitterness and lots of alcohol hang in the aftertaste for a long time.

M - Medium/full body with moderate fine carbonation. Very smooth with resin stickiness.

O - Add this to the growing list of beers from Green Flash that I love. Palate Wrecker is everything I'd want it to be: huge citrus hoppiness, subtle malts, massive abv, and yet incredibly drinkable. Will continue to buy this often.

A very good iipa. Very balanced and bold. Tons of piny and citrus notes from the hops. With just the right amount of malt sweetness to balance the beer and give it complexity. Silky, creamy mouthfeel. A very good interpretation of the style. Very Impressive

1 pt 6 fl oz bomber from FMcD's poured into a tulip glass. Best by 7/2/14

A - Dark ruby red, with a two finger fluffy head that retains for a good while

S - Overwhelming grapefruit, citrus, and hops.

T - Woah, what the hell just happened? Very interesting...How to explain....The grapefruit and citrus from the nose disappear, but the hops remain. Mild sea salt. An undercurrent of dark fruit , bready malts, and alcohol heat. Grass. Bitterness lingers.

M - Mouthfeel is above average. There is some sultry smoothness to it.

O - Saw the name, and I was up for the challenge. Finished the 2nd glass, and now I am getting sleepy. I am afraid to brush my teeth for the fear of what may happen.

Wow this is a nice beer. Hints of honey and lots of hops. Similar to hopslam but I might actually like this better. Too bad its $15.99 for a 4-pack near me. definitely worth it for a treat once in awhile. If you have not tried this I definitely recommend it.
