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

The woody, piney cedar is very noticeable here. Quite nice, if you ask me. The hops and cedar play nicely together.

Originally rated on 11/16.14. "Pours a copper color body with a white head and leaves some decent lace. Aroma of citrusy hops, herb and faint frsh cut lumber. In the taste, earthy and citrusy hops abound.The woodsy notes come through as it warms a bit. Medium bodied, crisp and dry with a solid hop bite.Overall, this is a really nice pale ale, a fair amount of complexity for this style.

Bottle, 22oz. A hazy one, dark orange-golden in color and with a dense, off-white head on top. The aroma is very fruity and piney, with lots of grapefruit, orange-peel and some peach. A malty touch in the back too. There’s a nice malty, spiced backdrop for the hops in the flavor. It’s quite bitter too, and piney, citrusy hops dominates. I don’t think there’s much impact from the cedar wood in this one, but it might be that it’s just blending with the hops. It’s full-bodied, smoothly carbonated and quite drying on the palate. Lasting citrusy, grapefruit mostly, piney and bitter finish. This was a pleasant beer to enjoy just after breakfast. 150608

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!

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.
