The name is true to the flavor. The hops hit your mouth and takeover. This is one of my favorite strong hoppy beers from Green Flash!

The name is inappropriate since it does not wreck the sense of taste but establishes it own context of strong flavored which dictate what pairs well, as all food and beverage does. Just as a big red wine cannot pair with fish, this brew must be consumed with equally flavorful foods. I selected several cheese, and it was very good.

Very hoppy, very caramelized. No strong aroma.

Awesome beer. Though it proclaims itself a "palate wrecker," it is accessible and not too boozy. A ton of hops but not to the point where the bitterness overcomes you. Copper color, nice lacing around the glass, and a piney essence. Very good. Will get again.
