Poured into a pint glass. Pours a very nice clear honey color. Nice white head pretty much stayed the whole time. Nice lacing too.

Aroma is nice and hoppy. Very citrusy. Bit of maybe pineapple. Reminds me of knuckle sandwitch.

Tastes great. Very hoppy. Guess that's why they call it palate wrecker. Nice maltyness to it though. After a few sips the bitterness really destroys your tongue. Bit of honey sweetness. It's kinda knuckle sandwitch-ish but a lot more bitter.

Mouthfeel is nice. Nice balance. Nice carb.

Overall a tasty beer. So bitter. Wouldn't drink a ton of it but it's a good beer for sure
