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.

Pours golden with minimal head. Aroma a huge orange hit. Flavor follows with that single note somewhat balanced with hops/bitter. Finish mellow with lingering fruit. Overall i am not a fan of overly fruity brews so Iím off this one.

"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, itís 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 IBUís 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. Thereís just enough bitterness to keep things crisp and refreshing. Whether you love or fear Green Flashís creations, 30th Street might surprise you in a good way.

Cybercat (3972) - Georgia, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Comes out of tap clear golden with a thick and rather fine-bubbled pancake-batter head that leaves generous lacing. Aroma is richly hoppy, more IPA than PA, woody and a little evergreen with malty hints. Strongly hoppy flavor is woody and resiny yet scarcely bitter, with malty and fruity underpinnings. Firm texture has good fizz and body.

Orange pour from draft at the local. White foamy head. Peach Orange lemon aromas. Amazing smell. Hoppy floral heaven. Slightly bitter finish on a fruit bomb

It has a nice light hop aroma, the flavor is very effervescent with some citrus hops. Good and right on per style

On tap at the brewery. Large tulip glass. A bouquet of aroma...floral, pine and citrus. Taste has a heavy dose of bitterness with a hoppy, resiny feel. Oily mouthfeel. Overall itís a standard pale ale that feels pretty heavily hopped helping to make it slightly more potent than others. Decent.

Fine hop blend matches the malt sweetness and body. On close out for $2.99/22 ounces.

Draft at pizza Luce hopkins. Hoppy aroma with grapefruit evident. Murky Amber with a thin ring if head. Some lace. Wonderful citrusy hop flavor with juicy grapefruit. Tons of flavor for a pale ale. Excellent.

Very well done. One to try if you like IPA's. I don't remember much of the specifics of this beer as I am just now getting around to ratting this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orangey tan pour, quick head. Nose is floral (as the label says) with a hint of wood in the background. Bitter. Middle is a nice medium malt backbone, apricots, citrus zest. Finish is bitter and satisfying.

Loads of bright flavors...citrus pith, tropical fruit including pineapple and mango, and a bit of pepper. A pretty solid example!
