SN Hopsichord (Audition) but soooo tasty
lol, that made my night
Im shoked that no one has mentioned Mikkeller 1000 IBU Light that shit destroys ur palate.
You say that, but . . . I swear Mikkeller UltraMate 1000 IBUs was really gross stuff. Just all kinds of medicinal-type astringency, to the point that the mouthfeel was just chalky-dry. Unpleasant to drink.
Palate Wrecker, though . . . is beautiful.
Ha! Just barely beat me to it, apparently. I think UltraMate is the same thing.
It's been mentioned a couple times..maybe it would be mentioned more if it wasn't so damn expensive
Palate wrecker isn't bitter to me at all.
149 IBUs...What's bitter to you? Or did you have a mouth full of peanut butter while you were drinking it?
I have had it many times as well as almost all of the over the top DIPA's. I find the lower ABV high bitter beers lack the balance so come across too bitter to be a good beer. Palate Wrecker is a nice easy drinking beer for the style, I do love my hops and have for many years.
Same here for me. I couldn't finish a bomber of AB when I first got into craft. I'm curious what my opinion would be now a few years later...
It still has some bitterness, but is so malty that it is balanced enough.
Green Flash west Coast IPA I guess. Found it more bitter than Palate Wrecker to be honest.
I agree. It's a really good beer, but I don't think it's appropriately named. I personally judge bitterness by what my palate is telling me, not the IBU.
Hoptimum. I love IIPAs and this one was tough for me to drink. Not sure if it was the batch or what. I tried it back in August so not sure if the batch I got was old or fresh. I had to force myself to drink the 3 remaining in the 4 pack after I was already pretty much loaded.
The regular ibu was mentioned, not the light version. I found the regular 1000 ibu to be rather malty but the light version is the one that is truly intense.
one more vote for Green Flash Palate Wrecker, it couldn't be more appropriately named
freeze some fresh Hop 15 draft, then enjoy the slushy mix as it defrosts. extremely bitter, strong and delicious. think ill try it with Ruination this weekend.
A few batches of Death by Hops for sure. Not all of them, but several of the earlier batches were just brutal.
Palate Wrecker for me...beer was offensive to me.
Maybe it was due to drinking it when I was first getting into craft, but Brewdog's Hardcore ipa (pre recipe change) still haunts me in my dreams.
Are you confusing tart with bitter? Festina Peche is not bitter at all.
My top 3 bitter beers are:
1. Mikkeller 1000 IBUs
2. Founders Devil Dancer (fresh, must be fresh)
3. Moylans Hopsickle
It was a few months old, but not overly so. I think they stopped brewing Hoptiimum in May. I love that beer.
The appropriately named Palate Wrecker.
Clown Shoes Supa Hero
Palate Wreck for a "good bitter" and Hoptimum for a "not so good bitter". What can I say? my taste buds were conflicted....
120 minute is up there, but it's been awhile. Wife thought she was doing me a favor when she bought two last night. Not for me.
Palate Wrecker, Hoptimum. Double bastard is pretty hoppy too.
