Style: American Double / Imperial IPA
Brewery: Green Flash Brewing, San Diego, CA
Look 4.0 Smell 4.5 Taste 4.0 Feel 4.5 Overall 4.5
Fabulous monster of a double imperial, Green Flash has this one spot on. Palate Wrecker pours a solid orange, with resilient head and lacing.
The smell is floral, with the expected hint of pine balance with something sweet. Highly complex with the piney hops one would expect, but with plenty of malt, orange and even some honey, all balanced out with some nice carbonation which make this one a relatively light feeling double.
At 9.5% ABV, this one sends you well down the road to happiness. Palate Wrecker is a beer drinker's beer.
