This hoppy pale ale starts out as 30th Street Pale Ale and then undergoes Spanish cedar aging. Wood aging imparts an intense cedar aroma which dominates the dry hop. The flavor contributions from the Spanish cedar include peppercorn spiciness and a tannic dry mouth feel that makes the hop flavor and bitterness linger in the finish. The wood adds a fun and unique twist on a classic American Strong Pale Ale, “The wood is good!” Hops used: Warrior, El Dorado, Cascade

Draft: The thing to talk about with this beer is it’s delicious aroma. The cedar lends a nice spicy aroma and flavor that really sticks with you through the finish. Very nice, and I’d love to try this again! Awesome stuff.

Cedar adds an interesting aroma and flavor. Kind of like my childhood cedar chest...the most aromatic furniture in our home! Outstanding IPA!

22oz bottle picked up at College Liquors
Pours clear golden with a medium sized off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is woody, cedar and dusty. Taste is floral, biscuity, cedar with a mild bitterness in the finish

Another really solid, delicious beer from Green Flash. The beer pours a bright but cloudy amber color with a ton of foamy, creamy head. The aroma is citrus and pine hops, a little bit of vanilla malt in the background. Big, spicy burn on the front of the tongue, and a warm, rich malt hits mid-sip. Then the character of the wood and some punch from the alcohol close it out. Green Flash does hop forward beers as well as anyone.

Bottle. Pours a transparent amber with spotty off white head. Taste and aroma of malts and a bit of hoppiness that lingers.

A very nice APA with a distinct aroma. I wouldn’t say that the cedar was super apparent, but it added an understated newness to the quality of the aroma. It terms of the taste, a pretty standard west coast pale with a bitter spicy finish.

Bottle. Pours clear brown amber with very little head. Nose and taste is piney. Some malt sweetness in the mid flavor. Lasting dry bitter aftertaste.

Yeasty tea, wood, and grass nose. Hazy orange, thick sticky head. Lemon zest and tea, with woody overtones. Medium body, soft carbonation. Good but a bit stale.

airrick2003 (650) - Louisiana, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Appearance: this beer pours with a large beige head that settles into a nice density, the beer is pretty clear, slightly darker golden color with hues of amber Aroma: grass, citrus, dank, perhaps some peppercorn, smells good Taste: moderate bitterness, strong caramel malt in the middle, has a hint of peppercorn spice throughout the whole sip, bitter finish Palate: average carbonation, medium mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste Overall: this is a good bold pale ale, I would have guessed the abv would have been higher than 6%, try this if you're into imperial ipa's but want a lower abv ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

New copper penny pour with a hint of tangelo and a solid ivory crown that leaves a ring or two of lacing. Bright citrus, spice, and loads of raw wood. Solid amount of flavor, particularly for a brew at 6%. Yum.
