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 ΒΌ 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.
