Tap at SanDiego Beer Party. Fantastic Pale Ale. Could almost be confused as a light IPA. Nice and balanced with a fairly hefty hop kick for the style. Sessionable and then some.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - FEB 27, 2009
On tap @ Patricks - Poway. Golden/bronze color. Nice hoppy nose. Insanely drinkable. Very much a Green Flash beer. Like a slightly less hoppy, more drinkable version of West Coast IPA.

wetherel (1836) - Encinitas, California, USA - FEB 1, 2009
On tap at Green Flash brewery. Man, green flash makes great IPAs, which are even better fresh. 30th st pale ale in particular is insanely drinkable and good with itís lower alcohol level. How wonderful it would be to have a keg of this at home. Itís funny how lighter beers never get the highest ratings, because they donít have extreme flavor profiles. Oh well. Still an excellent beer.
