Green Flash Palate Wrecker
Green Flash Palate Wrecker from Al’s of Hampden. The beer pours a beautiful amber color with a lofty and frothy white head that leaves some lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of tangerine, orange, grapefruit, marijuana, pepper, and spruce. The taste is bitter dry with tangerine, pink grapefruit, orange, and lemon citrus flavors on the front end. Pepper and spruce come out and completely dry the mouth and leaves a thin film on the mouth. The alcohol content is 9.5% ABV. This was such a wonderfully bitter beer with so much citrus flavor. The aroma reminded me of the hop candies that are sold at various places, and the flavor was even better.
