Palate Wrecker pours a dark copper color and is capped by a big and fluffy, off-white head. Hop aromas pop out of the glass. Grapefruit citrusyness comes out swinging and i
s followed by lighter traces of caramel and breadiness, all before a touch of pine lingers in the finish. Hop bitterness explodes on the balance with flavors of grapefruit and pine resin providing the bulk of the bitterness. Bready and caramel-like flavors provide a malty backbone and help to balance out the onslaught of hoppiness as more bitterness carries though on the finish. A touch of alcohol is also noticeable on the pallet. Medium bodied and moderately carbonated, Palate Wrecker weighs in at 9.5% ABV. Boom!
