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 headís 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.

UXO (811) - CANADA - NOV 6, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2015 Pours hazy pale amber with two fingers of rocky ivory head, excellent retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is citrus and pine, pineapple, caramel malt, floral notes. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering and building bitter finish. (4/5) At 6.0% ABV and 45 IBU, Iíd call this perilously close to a DIPA, let alone an IPA. (Not that Iím complaining, yíunnerstand.) Fruity and robust, this was an excellent companion to lunch, but itís not so much of a hop bomb that you couldnít session a couple of these quite handily. If Green Flash does anything badly, I havenít encountered it yet. (15/20)

Christian (11784) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle at home. Hazy amber with a lasting white head. Strong hoppy aroma of pine, with floral notes, grass and citrus, along with a touch of bready malt. Dry, quite malty flavour with lovely hop character and a good, firm bitterness in the finish. I failed to find a best before/bottling date, but it tastes like this is just past itís prime and could be even better on tap in California...

Indra (2707) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 23, 2014
22oz. bottle. Freshly aromatic and hoppy aroma, very green, with notes of pine, lemon, tangerine, new-mown hay and leafy herb, along with some lightly floral and malty sweetness in the background. Hazy pale amber-golden in color with a large, fluffy, lasting head and thick strands of lacing. Flavor profile is nicely hopped as well, with plenty of citrus, pine, herbal tones and slight grassiness, there is some lightly honeyish malt sweetness present in the background as well, finishing moderately bitter and hoppy once again. A fair level of effervescence here on the palate with a smooth, drinkable, quenching feel and a medium body. Very tasty and, as advertised, IPA-like. Really nice stuff.

Holtguy (132) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Bought as bomber for stunning price of $1.99. Pours gold with thin white head. Aroma is mild, floral and citrus. Pretty decent bitterness, like an IPA. Taste is resinous with pine and citrus. IPA-like again. A hint of iced tea flavor as well, with a somewhat dry finish.
