10 Spring Beers for the End of a Long Winter

8. Green Flash Palate Wrecker
Style: American Imperial IPA
Alcohol by volume: 9.5%

Easily the most fun name on our list, Palate Wrecker is also by far the most accurate. International bitterness units are used to measure just how bitter a beer is and typically cut off at 100. San Diego's Green Flash claims 100-plus for Palate Wrecker, which may not be possible but is certainly disputable considering the mouth-puckering bitterness of this brew. This isn't a brewer that saves its hops for seasonal gimmicks, either. Its year-round West Coast IPA weighs in at 95 IBUs. Its everyday Imperial claims 105 IBUs. Each has a hops-up-your-nostrils floral aroma and a flavor that couldn't be more citrusy if you sat around all day licking grapefruit. Palate Wrecker isn't released from January through April as a pleasant little spring awakening; it occupies that window because you couldn't handle it the other eight months of the year.
