3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Tap @ Blind Lady. Pours orange puffy tan head nose is really hoppy and sweet taste is damn hoppy and tasty too
Much bigger beer than I guessed this would be, and its cool having a beer named after a street so close and a street so important to SD.

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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
