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. "/>

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.
