Simple, really. A non-lethal alternative to controvesial flashbangs and tasers. A small grenade will, when thrown, gently crack open and release a massive quantity of denatonium benzoate (in gas form)over the area. Denatonium is regarded as one of the most bitter substances known to man, and is unbearable
even in concentrations of 10 ppm. The affected rioters will be harmlessly subjected to the most sour $#%! ever created, and be arrested for a nice, long drink of water and a jail cell.

Description (displayed with the short name and URL.)
||Wikipedia indicates denatonium exists as a salt - any idea what it would take to disburse it as a gas?
||Don't you mean 'Bitter' Grenades?
||With sour grenade, you'd need to disperse a fine cloud of oxalic acid. Or something similar. Maybe just beam a ray of ionized hydrogens directly into the mouth of the victim; then you can have a sour laser.
||As opposed to 'Bitters' Grenades which release measures of Angostura, leaving the victims with settled stomachs and a slightly pinkish hue.
||//leaving the victims with settled stomachs and a slightly pinkish hue.//
||[canuck] what would leave victims a slightly bluish hue? ....think smurfs....
||It appears that, for respirator testing, Bitrex is
dissolved in warm salt water, and can then be
delivered as an aerosol. This would be a more
efficient delivery system rather than attempting to
gassify it or disperse it as a solid.
