Previously from this brewery: Marci's look at the sampler, and my look at Linchpin IPA (and others)
The worst part of returning to work after a three day weekend is without a doubt having to do two days worth of work in one day. More like two and a half, as no one was really doing much work on Friday afternoon. Such is life. I did get an awesome belated Valentine's Day card in the mail today. It was awesome because it came from Southwest Airlines and included four free drink coupons. I feel loved. There was also talk at work of scheduling some team building at an upcoming Phillies game, which is a sure sign that spring will be here sooner than later - can't wait!!!
Today's review is the Palate Wrecker, an Imperial IPA from Green Flash, which I had on draft at TJ's a while back. This beer has a clear, dark copper hue, and your nose is welcomed by a huge citrus aromas, with some woodsy pine in there as well. When you take a sip, you get a dry, earthy beer with abundant pineapple and lemon flavors, with an herbal, earthy quality from the pine. It wraps up with a dry finish filled with bitterness. If this beer was a superhero, it's name would be Super Hops, and it would fight crime and save the day and be delicious. This one is a must try for the hop lovers out there, without a doubt.

This brewery was awarded the prestigious Best Brewery Visit award from the original 366 challenge. Congrats! I also reviewed this brewery after eating lunch at Slater's 50/50, still the greatest cheeseburger I have ever eaten in all my life. I miss it greatly. San Diego is stupid for being so far away.
Thing to Think About Today:
Palate Wrecker.... met Wreckx-n-Effect. That seems to go well together, no? Time to relive the 90's, because I'm dropping Rump Shaker on you all!
