Palate Wrecker pours a hazy bronze color with a large lacing head. There is a big hoppy flavor, big malt flavors too. Big strong flavors. Overall its very aggressive, big hop flavors, very sharp flavors.

Nice creamy head with beautiful lace shapes. Tropical fruit aroma. Dank and earthy. Flavor begins with a corn bread malt backbone. Hops are aggressive at first then turn pungent with a spicy, brine like flavor. Pine, grass and earthy notes come to mind. Bone dry finish with a grainy texture on the tongue. Total palate destruction.

An in your face IPA as the name implies. Hop bitterness was appropriate for a Palate Wrecker, but seemed to lack the blanace seen in other Green Flash offerings.

Big! Bitter! Fruit, pine, citrus rind, pepper, salt, and delight. Dry mouth aftertaste. And beautiful color and head. I want this again.
