Green Flash's Palate Wrecker is an IPA to be reckoned with. It pours an absolutely beautiful, bright, clear golden peach color, with a nominal head but a lot of lacing. The aroma is a lot of pine and a little bit of floral, but all hops. The flavor is monstrous hops. Just absolutely unrestrained hop aggression. As the name suggests, this is an IPA for hop heads only. Make it your last, or only, beer of the evening. Palate Wrecker is not quite in league with Stone's Ruination, which is more complex and a little denser, but it's very good.
