In this beer blog, we are going to get into a brewery, who is Green Flash Brewing, that I had a few of their brews. I have been wanting to get into their beers a little more. Everyone I know that are hophead keep on telling me to try this beer, which is Palate Wrecker Hamilton’s Ale. Green Flash was founded in 2002 by Mike and Lisa Hinkley in Vista, California. In 2011, they moved their brewery to San Diego, California. They brew several different beer styles but they are best known for their hoppy beers. Their beers come in kegs, four pack bottles, and twenty-two ounces bottles. As you can see in the photo above, we are getting into a beer in big bottle line.
It has a clear copper color with a white constant head on the beer. The smell is piney to citrus in the beer. The taste is carbonated piney with an extremely dry hop finish. This is a beer that some beer drinkers will be drinking water with it. It is a sipping beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle and their website (www.greenflashbrew.com):
“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.” Chuck Silva, Brewmaster

Ending, no kidding beer drinkers were demanding this beer to be release to the general public. This is awesome Imperial India Pale Ale. The only thing I do not like about it. I believe it is just a little bit over hopped but that is just being picking. Asides that, this is an awesome beer. I love the hops they use in this brew. This is a beer you need to sip. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
