Brewed by Green Flash Brewing Co.
Style: American Double/Imperial IPA
Serve at 50-55°
Enjoyed from a snifter
Notes: Palate Wrecker was originally brewed for the Hamilton’s Tavern 2nd Anniversary celebration. It’s the most complicated West Coast–inspired IPA we have ever brewed—mashing and sparging with hopped wort, in addition to our hop layering regimen for IPA. We use almost 6 lbs/bbl of Columbus and Centennial hops to create this very bitter hop monster (tested at 149 IBU and no extracts in case you were wondering). By popular demand, it is now released for the world to enjoy (even though this beer isn’t for everyone, only the real hop heads!!!). Cheers! – Chuck Silva – Brewmaster – Green Flash Brewing
A: Pours a hazy copper-orange with two fingers of white head. Produced extensive web lacing.
S: Pine blast to the face, tangerine and lemon rind, dank, fresh hops; tropical fruits sit on top of a sweet caramel base. Very fresh.
T: Pine blast follows to the palate. Powerful resin and pine gives way to juicy orange, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon and pineapple, before the malty sweetness rolls across the tongue. The booze is very stealthy.
M: Medium bodied with low carbonation, chewy, oily; finishes dry and crisp – pine note sticks around…and around.
O: I’m thrilled to have a variety of Green Flash brews at my local stores. Much like the Green Bullet, this DIPA is a hop bomb with excellent complexities. This is worth the purchase.
