Green Flash Brewing Company Palate Wrecker Hamilton's Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Green Flash Brewing Company Palate Wrecker Hamilton's Ale. Everything I've tried from Green Flash Brewing Company has been top notch and I was happy to finally come upon this beer.
From the Green Flash Brewing Company website: “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. By popular demand, it is now released for the world to enjoy.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a golden copper color with a white head and nice lacing.
Aroma: Tropical, pine, floral and citrus hop scents with a very slight malt presence.
Taste: Intense hop bitterness – spicy, floral, citrus and pine followed by a malty sweetness that keeps the overall experience nicely balanced.
Overall: Hoppy and amazing, Green Flash Brewing Company Palate Wrecker Hamilton's Ale lives up to the name. Weighing in at 9.5% ABV this Double IPA is a real hop head’s dream. Super drinkable and dangerous…get some!
