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.

Pours a clear copper color , with a fluffy white head.
Aroma of hops is very powerful, with hints of grapefruit , pineapple and mango.
The taste... amazing! Hops stand up front offering a dominating bitterness , with the classic west coast IPA characteristics. The bitterness lingers on the palate.
Mouth feel is medium bodied with a crisp dry finish.
Overall, I really enjoy this beer, in fact Palate wrecker is one of my all time favorites. The only bad part is that it tastes so good that is really hard to drink them in moderation... 9.5 abv is only apparent after you've had a couple .

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.

App: A bright peach color with an eggshell head that develops a good head with decent lacing.

Nose: Fresh hops, apricot, clean and strong.

Taste: Crisp, which fades to syrupy, big hoppy profile. Grapefruit, apricot, lots of citrus and green.

Notes: Very clear hop profile in the nose and taste. Southern California is the land of "palate wreckers", so this does not stand up to the stated style. It would make for a great IPA, but not an imperial or double.

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.

Got this bottle at De Bierknoning in Amsterdam. First had it a couple hears ago at Frank’s boathouse and thought it was God’s gift to me personally. Been waiting patiently to see it again, and alas, there it was, staring at me in the face at De Bierkoning for a reasonable price. Cheers God!

From a bottle into a snifter
Best by 29 nomonth 2014 (it actually said 29 / 00/ 2014)

APPEARANCE: Pours a three finger, medium-looser, fluffy, slightly off-white head with excellent retention. Perfectly clear burnt orange in color with no carbonation evident. Head slowly fades to a foamy cap and leaves lots of chunky lacing down the glass. A good foamy wisp remains leaving lots of lacing as the glass empties.

SMELL: Huge nose on this one. Opens up right as the cap comes off. Lots of hops and malts on the nose here, which I can appreciate. Grapefruit, soapy hops, orange peel, lemon notes, pale malts, caramel and touches of honey on the nose. Big and bold for sure. Lots of good stuff going on for sure, and plenty bold and forthcoming.

TASTE: Grapefruit and caramel sweetness up front. Floral and hoppy soap notes at the swallow, with a big and bold finish of soapy hop flavors, grapefruit, lots of bitterness and floral flavors, some caramel sweetness and touches of alcohol linger as well. Very bitter and only somewhat soapy with a solid malt backbone.

PALATE: Medium-full body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy smooth on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes slightly mouth-coating. Some soapy bitterness lingers. Perhaps a little sticky with a higher final gravity for the DIPA style, but it’s a train I can certainly appreciate, as I like a good malty sweet base to my DIPA’s.

OVERALL: Good stuff. The malty backbone gives it a higher FG than some of the other examples of the style, but I enjoy that, which is obviously a matter of personal taste. I don’t remember this brew being so soapy either, so since the recipe probably hasn’t changed, I guess my palate has done a bit of re-schooling. Can imagine this soapy character comes from using citra as a bittering hop, which really isn’t my thing. Still, this is a very well executed brew and has a lot of things I like about certain higher ABV double IPA’s. Well worth checking out especially if you like hopper brews with higher FG’s. Thanks again Frank for bringing this along all those years. It’s made me a curious searcher ever since. Cheers!

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.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a transparent golden, huge fluffy white head, great retention and sticky lacing. It doesn't get too much better as for as appearance goes. Lots of fruitiness right off the bat. I'm picking up some grapefruit and alot of orange. There's a touch of booze in the aromas as well, but not overwhelming. The flavors are bold. More graprefruit in the mix. I'm picking up a decent amount of pine too. Resin is there, finishes somewhat sweet. Alcohol goes unnoticed in the flavors for the most part, making it pretty easy to drink. Mouthfeel is right on, moderate amount of carbonation and makes for a smooth drink.

My only beef is that it's somewhat one note. I was expecting a little more based on it being from Green Flash and called Palate Wrecker. But nonetheless, it's a nice beer.

This is a really nice DIPA. It's not exactly mind blowing, but very well done..

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.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a modest head that leaves some splashy lace behind

Smell: Grapefruit pith and quite a bit of caramel

Taste: Caramel malt, for a brief second, and then the hops take over bringing citrus pith initially; after the swallow, I get some onions and a return of the sugars that makes for a sweet, though balanced, finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Was really hoping for more from this beer as I love almost everything that Green Flash produces; not bad, but the onions and sweetness on the finish reduce its appeal to me

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.

The nose on this beer isn't terribly distinctive - ambiguously fruity, bubblegum-y, maybe some grape.

On the palate it is hugely bitter, almost numbing up front. Again, some sort of ambiguous fruit salad notes fall into place with a light caramel sweetness backing it up. There are floral, grassy and grapefruit notes, but mostly big, bitter pine.

I had a little glass of bourbon before this and my palate is certainly confused, if not wrecked. It was expecting some relief from the booze, but the extreme IBUs here are bringing a similar sort of thrashing. Wish I could taste a little more character behind the bitterness, but alas, this beer is what it's marketed to be.

Deep honey-caramel color, with impeccable clarity. The head is lovely as well at 1 finger and tons of dancing lace.

Tons of chinook and columbus on the nose. Practically a freshly picked hop/opened hop pouch. Slight dirty caramelish aromas behind that.

Um, holy crap. This beer doesn't lie and neither will I. This will destroy your tongue in several ways. First, it stimulates the salival glands to secrete at the utter dryness of the alcohol and hop combining. Second, it twists your tongue as the hop practically attacks it like white blood cells on a virus. Some facial expressions will be made. Third, it scrubs your tongue of all dignity like a paint scraper on the wall. Fourth, the heavy alcohol presence creates a hotness in both your mouth and down your tube to your belly. This is a little tastier but no less bitter than chewing on raw hop.

Feel is hot and burning, with a dry feel and a scrubbing sensation.

Overall, a drain pour in the best way possible. It's simply too much for me. It's my fault, not the beer's. It's not a bad beer. But the hops are insane and it's by far the hoppiest, most bitter beer I've ever had. Hop heads, unite.

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.

A-pours a bright orange/amber color with a fingers worth of white head that slowly fades to leave some lacing around the top

S-primarily hops with citrus, mostly grapefruit, and pine hops with some light bready malt to give a bit of sweetness

T-really massive amount of hops in the taste with big pine and citrus flavors. Malt does not come to play much in the taste at all, actually its almost absent. Alcohol is well hidden.

M-medium body, medium to full carbonation

Overall this is a massive hop beer with not a lot of balance which makes it slightly difficult to finish. Definitely lives up to the name!

A- This is a beautiful golden orange with a pillowy head that settles down but leaves copious lacing around the glass.

S- Supery hoppy! Herbal, grassy, catty, pine, faint citrus. No alochol on the nose. Can smell some malts, too.

T- Starts off moderately sweet, but quickly asserts itself as dry and bitter. Kind of earthy with an oniony presence and some pine.

M- Good drinkability for the style.

O- Well made beer, but not my favorite example of the style.

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.

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.

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.

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.

From a month old single into a NB globe glass

A: fairly clear goldish amber, 1 finger off-white head that subsides within a minute or two
S: pine resin, grapefruit rind, floral notes, caramel and pale bready malts
T: waves of hoppy bitterness, some decent malt backbone, but mainly bitter and resiny. Floral notes on the end, all the while unrelentingly bitter and dry. I like bitterness a lot...this doesn't overwhelm, but at the same time, it doesn't really do much that is very interesting to me. Ok, but nothing too exciting.
M: medium carbonation, creamy, dry, bitter.

Appearance- Pours up a decent amount of head and shows pretty good retention. The head is a very light beige that is almost off-white while the body is a medium to dark amber which appears as a medium amber in the light. A good amount of lacing has been left behind.

Nose- Starts with a blast of hops that range from musty to grapefruit to more generic citrus notes. Some pine and resin. Some tropical fruits. A bit of honey. The glass shows a little more caramel but even this seems to get covered over by the aromatic and fruity hops. While I know that the fruity hops won't carry over to the flavor profile, here's hoping...

Taste- Has a hint of sweetness and then just launches a full out assault of bitter hops. Very deep grapefruit, pine and resin, lots of earwax. It's like licking bark. Some sweetness tries to peak through but the bittering hops are pretty boisterous in this one. I'm not surprised by any of this or the strong burnt caramel presence that is only deepened by the extreme grapefruit and matchstick notes. Five years ago, I would have loved this beer. Now, I can't stand a beer like this. Not that it isn't good; it's a pretty solid beer and accomplishes its aims. Does have enough milder fruitiness about it to sustain it. I do catch some orange, some hints of honey and floral notes. It's a really good beer when it isn't being so goddamn abrasive and clearly shows why it's ranked as high as it is.

Mouthfeel- Pretty heavy, this moves it into American Barleywine range. A little more than medium bodied with a thick, syrup texture that has a bit of zip. While structurally sound, even the mouthfeel seems abrasive.

Drinkability- This one is not easy. For a second it is, but this quickly turns. It's brash, it's abrasive. It still has enough of a malt backbone to keep this in check while your palate does indeed get wrecked. If you're into that kind of thing, 3.49 ain't that bad. For me, it's way too much.

Overall- Solid beer for me but I understand the love. This beer is not bullshit- this is one of the most devastatingly hopped beers I've ever had. I used to like that but now, a beer like this is a chore. It is alcoholic enough to make me briefly forget all that though. Worth a try but it is pretty much what it says it is.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into Tulip. Best by date is the 1st of August 2017.

L: Clear bright amber, half finger light beige head that slowly recedes into a thin layer.

S: A lot of hops to sort through here, picking up some floral, pine, citrus and possibly herbal notes as well. Really well balanced in the hops category but not overall as expected. Faint caramel sweetness in the background though. Really makes your mouth water. Detecting a hint of booze in there too.

T: Boy is that a wallop to the palate! Very bitter but not so much that you don't want to keep drinking. Lots of citrus and pine hops making themselves heard here with underlying notes of the floral and herbal. Boozy hit after the hops mellow out. Caramel notes try to take contorl and lose becoming some background noise. Unbalanced as expected.

F: Oily, slick, Medium-full body with good carbonation. A bit syrupy.

O: Not the best IIPA but not the worst, a solid beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy copper orange with a medium pillowy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is a little subdued - piney, resiny, dank hops with some sweet caramel malt and a little melon.

The flavor is a little caramel malt and fruit with a ton of resiny, piney, very bitter hops that linger in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a monster hop bomb. Tons of bitterness, but not a lot of good hop flavors.

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...
