Green Flash is a great West Coast brewery, and I always enjoy their offerings. I had heard rumblings of Palate Wrecker on the Internet and had to check it out when I saw a four pack available at my local store. Touted as an Imperial IPA, this is an absolute hop bomb that checks in at 9.5% ABV. This beer is obviously extremely hoppy, which as regular readers of my blog know, is my favorite style of beer! The smell and taste run the gamit of hops, piney and resiny in taste, long finish, fantastic mouthfeel. I would give this beer an A- as it is just a little too over the top for me to give a straight A.
