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.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a decent lasting white frothy to creamy head that leaves great lacing. Faint aroma of pine, citrus and floral perfume. Medium bitter, light body, thin texture, lively carbonation and a fairly long bitter finish. Not terribly well balanced-almost no malt.

shoulderbroken (2160) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 13, 2014
Tap at Watering Hole. Nice, lots of fruit, citrus and tropical plus bit of graininess. Light sweetness, but still good bitterness. Orange and mango maybe. Slightly funky mineral finish. Nice! Refreshing.

Pours a slightly hazy gold color with a big light tan head that settles to a nice film with excellent retention and good lacing. Aroma of grapefruit with floral and dank character and a bit of sweetness. Taste is pretty big for a pale ale with citrus rind, floral and onion notes, a bit of caramel sweetness and some earthy pepper in the dry finish. Aftertaste has a lingering moderate bitter and pepperiness. Light/medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Blurs the line between a pale ale and IPA with lots of hop character. Very good.

RedSox2004 (1307) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Clear, pure gold, with a two-finger head and very nice lace. Aromas of sharp citrus hops - grapefruit with a touch of orange and lime - peppery spice and a pale malt background. Bitter hops up front is eventually offset with a gentle pale malt sweetness, but the bitterness is shighlight throughout. Medium to full body, gnerous carbonation, super smooth and creamy mouthfeel, and a wonderful crisp bitter finish.

651 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, white head with some lacing, over a clear amber (SRM 10) body......nose is pine, citrus, slightly dusty, cereal, light herbs, no esters, balance to the hops.....taste is cereal, light sweetness, pine, resin, citrus peel, leading to a moderate lingering simple, slightly harsh bitterness.....mouth feel, body light of medium, mild astringency, no alcohol, finishing with a soft carbonation. The hop bitterness is dominant over the floral hop characteristics, and the malt backbone. An adjustment in the hop backbone would make for a more balanced and better beer. BJCP 7/3/11/4/6

650ml bottle. Has a very nice and heavily dry hopped bright citrusy nose. Flavor is pretty high on citrus hops, not much bitterness at all.

Aroma is citrus, floral hops and a good hint of DIPA sweetness. The flavor is citrus, fruit, mild/medium sweetness, slight hop resin notes and a mildly bitter/dry finish.

AirForceHops (3432) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 28, 2014
650 ml bottle purchased @ Downtown Discount Beverage, Dover, NH. The color is a clear gold with an amber hue. Lasting retention in a shaker glass. Aroma is close to an IPA, big citrus and pine notes. The body is medium with a crisp finish that ends clean. No bottle date or code anywhere to be found but it must be a fresher bottle. This strattles the line of an IPA. Large bright hop profile. Nice.

theisti (3276) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUN 27, 2014
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.
