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.

Shaker pint draft at Tryst in Delray Beach, Florida. The pour is mostly clear copper golden with a ½ inch off white head. The aroma is fresh grass and lightly herbal hop along with a soft resin and a bit of grain cracker malt. The taste is the same balance of the nose - grass herbal resin hop with grain cracker malt. The palate is light to medium bodied with active carbonation and a dry grass finish along with some mineral and earth. Solid, worked nice with the tacos I was eating.

On tap at Brunzies. Mild grassy and dank hop aroma, a bit of sweetness. Deep golden amber clear with thin white head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Starts moderately sweet with big hop flavor and hop bitterness. Finish is smooth, sweet and after is lingering bitterness.

Bottle from Belmont. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A big nose dominated by marmalade, some lemons. A smooth beer, medium bitterness, grainy, a bit of lemon zest, orange peel, floral at times, resinous hops, tea-like. Quite drinkable and good. Lots of green leafy hop flavors.

Love this pale ale from green flash. Bitter and hoppy. Typical west coast pale easy to drink. Had at home ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KansaiBeerLvrs (2045) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 22, 2014
On tap at CBB’s 2nd anniversary event. It pours a deep copper gold with a substantial head of foam. Rich biscuit malts plus good pine + herbal bitterness. Smooth bodied but undercarbed, they were having problems with the regulator or something. The taste is one dimensional bitter pine. Kind of boring.

Second full bottle of the day (TGIF!) after Green Flash - Palate Wrecker. Deliciously hoppy but more reserved than the previous bottle on the citrus notes. Still very delicious! Definitely a hop head, IPA lovin’ yes from me even though it’s a pale ale not a full on IPA.

Braudog (5741) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle. Pleasant if standard visuals, shiny, still and amber, the head is solid and white. Fun little aroma, too ... fresh and lightly citric, but not dominating in any way. Drinks with superbly exceptional balance ... firm but light malt backdrop, then a rollicking fresh hop blend that really makes this beer good. Just a twitch of fresh mown grass in the very finish. Excellent. (#5556, 6/16/2013)

backdaft (220) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Bomber. Clear golden orange pour. Thin head leaves some spotty lacing. Aroma is grassy hops with some light citrus. Taste is rather dry with a nice bitterness. Oily hops, some grapefruit, some lemon zest, and a just a touch of sweet malt. Crisp & clean finish. This blurs the line with a West Coast IPA. Very drinkable ABV.

650ml bomber pours a golden color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is pleasant with pine and citrus with floral notes and hints of caramel. Taste is a bold citrus and pine hop bitterness with an underlying malty sweetness. Light to medium body with good carbonation. A very well done American Pale Ale that definitely pushes the boundaries of being an IPA. Highly recommended.
