COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
30th Street Pale Ale is a strong pale ale that is well dry-hopped making it taste like an IPA by many hop head’s standards. The beer was brewed to recognize the synergy behind the craft beer culture on 30th Street in San Diego and was released for the Green Flash 6th Anniversary Celebration.

Pours a light apple juice color with a thick frothy cap that settles to 1 finger. Aromas of fruity (apricots)and citrusy hops up front with some floral notes behind that, some light caramel maltiness as well. Flavor is a bit maltier, with some caramel sweetness up front to go along with the fruity and floral hop notes. A light sweetness continues into the finish. Overall its a nice, balanced APA that is easy to drink. "

12 oz bottle: Aroma has got a nice floral citrus hop note with a light sticky pine resin note to it. There is not a lot of malt in this one, but we’ll see in the taste. Appearance is a clear golden with a thick white head that lingers around for quite a while. Taste has got a nice pungent hop note upfront with a resin like mouth fell and a really nice overall taste to it. Palate is medium to low carbonation with a nice after taste. Overall, good stuff. Cheers!

Green Flash always makes a nice PA and this was no exception. Good floral tones up front and a clean taste with a tiny bit of lingerage on the palate. MMm.

Cloudy deep copper with a lasting thin and sticky white head. Lovely nose of pine and grapefruit rind, a touch of grains of paradise, and delightful American hop resins. Lovely floral and bitter flavor with some tropical fruity bitterness, a touch of floral hops, a wee bit of grapefruit, and a clean malt background to give it a pseudo dry body and crisp flavor.

(Bottle) Clear pale amber, good white head. Intense and pleasant aroma with pineapple, citrus and pine. Medium body with gentle smooth carbonation. Taste starts with a nice balance of light caramel and pine and pineapple. A distinct and very pleasant hoppy bitterness develops for a long finish. A good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"IPA on any other street..." but a Pale Ale in this bottle. I like that sentiment. I like the hell out of some West Coast style ales. And I just plain love Green Flash. Interestingly, 30th Street Pale Ale nearly falls short of its promise. In the hop-obsessed clime of the present, it’s pretty easy to think of quite a few Pale Ales that are hoppier. Did that stop me from loving this beer? Not in the least. With 45 IBU’s and a solid malt backbone, 30th Street is a weapon of balance rather than explosive hops. It pours golden orange with a thick, sticky head. Lovely aroma of grass, malt, flowers, and light citrus. Flavor mostly follows with earth, biscuit, nectar, and bit of tropical fruit. There’s just enough bitterness to keep things crisp and refreshing. Whether you love or fear Green Flash’s creations, 30th Street might surprise you in a good way.
