New to Shelves: Schlafly, Green Flash

schlaflyA couple new and great beers have hit the shelves this week in Eastern Iowa. Schlafly has release their American IPA and Green Flash has given us their highly anticipated Palate Wrecker.

Schlafly American IPA comes in at 7.2% ABV and is available in 12 oz. bottles. From the brewery:

Exploding with hop flavor and aroma, this citrus/piney/floral ale has enough of a malt backbone to stand up to the intense bitterness.

Green Flash Palate Wrecker comes in at 9.5% ABV. From the brewery:

Palate Wrecker was originally brewed for the Hamilton’s Tavern 2nd Anniversary palatecelebration. 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. We use almost 6 lbs/bbl of Columbus and Centennial hops to create this very bitter hop monster (tested at 149 IBU and no extracts in case you were wondering). By popular demand, it is now released for the world to enjoy (even though this beer isn’t for everyone, only the real hop heads!!!). Cheers! – Chuck Silva – Brewmaster – Green Flash Brewing
