COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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, ďThe wood is good!Ē Hops used: Warrior, El Dorado, Cascade

Draft at the Porter Beer Bar in Atlanta. Pint glass. Pours a deep orange-amber with a pillow head. Good lacing. Strong aroma of cedar, citrus, pine and biscuit. The taste was not quite as strong cedar as the aroma. Pine and citrus hops came through. Nice spicy and floral finish. Slightly bitter. Good, but not as good as Humidor from Cigar City.

yngwie (15194) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2015
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. Thereís a nice malty, spiced backdrop for the hops in the flavor. Itís quite bitter too, and piney, citrusy hops dominates. I donít think thereís much impact from the cedar wood in this one, but it might be that itís just blending with the hops. Itís 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 itís delicious aroma. The cedar lends a nice spicy aroma and flavor that really sticks with you through the finish. Very nice, and Iíd 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!

Darwenus (634) - Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2015
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 wouldnít 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.
