Just tapped this last night at La Bella. It is the third time I have tried it, and the only bad thing I can say is, that we only got one keg. I would almost classify this as a triple IPA. It is a monster of a beer, that has a huge nose, that screams of centennial. The taste is not quite as big, but it is very robust also. And it goes down almost too easy for being a beer that is over 10%ABV. Think classic San Diego Style Double IPA, and then kicked up a notch or two. Very similar in flavor profile to the other Green Flash IPAs on the market, just bigger. Chuck you are one hell of a brewer, thank you. A Full bodied, thick beer that keeps coming with the flavor. The hops are still all over your tongue a minute after you take a drink. An excellent beer that I think should be a full time release. I think it would do well, even if it does poach a couple sales from the Imperial. Great job guys, keep plugging us with great beers, and we will keep buying them.
Went over to Hamilton's Tavern to get a pint of this beer, it is described as:
This is a mouth puckering HOP BOMB and just what we hoped for. "Palate Wrecker" is a compilations of 2 brews. When the first brew was finished they mashed in with the hop'd Wort and used it for the sparge on the 2nd Brew. I can tell you what to expect -> A "sick sticky columbus and centennial hop bomb". It's a chewy West Coast IIPA that will sit on your tongue and engrave it ;). Disclaimer: This is not a gateway beer, this is not a introductory WEST COAST IIPA.
This is a beer made by Green Flash Brewing for Hamilton's 2nd Anniversary.
Pours the color of caramel or an amber maple syrup. Half an inch of foam on the glass, great ¼ of an inch retention with some lacing. What I love about beers is that when you give it a swirl the head comes back to life and keeps releasing aromas and this beer is just that.
This beer is a pine and citrus hop bomb! A little grassy too. Huge centennial nose. Toasted and caramel malts. Pungent and resiny hops.
Wow, one of the bitterest beers I have tried. Citrus bitterness, pine needles, bitter tangerine; flowery and earthy hops. Toasted bread and dry crackers. The thing is that I'm not a huge fan of Centennial.
Full, thick, almost syrupy. Very dry finish at first.
Very heavy, beer. I could drink one pint but after that it would seem like a chore. Feels like a meal to drink.
