This was a real treat. Pours a straw golden color with great foam—and one of the long head retentions I’ve seen in recent memory. The aroma is coarsely cedariffic, like woodshop,
sawdust, a wet forest. There’s a great piney character to this beer with a slightly lemony note on the finish. Interesting nuance. As it warms I get more of the lemon peel. It’s sticky and thick for an APA with a wonderful finish full of cedar wood warmth. Loved it.

On tap at Toronado (SF). Pours a nice medium amber with a soapy white head, a film of fine bubbles. The aroma is pretty standard green flash hoppiness. Good citrus hops with a nice honey malt backbone. Some tropical fruits also pop up with a touch of sweet wood in the background. Taste adds a lot more cedar. Hops are a bit bland but the cedar flavor is really nice. It's like I'm drinking an IPA in a cedar closet. Relatively dry. The cedar contributes a very pleasant flavor that blends into the hop bitterness quite well. Mouthfeel is pretty normal. Medium carbonation. Mild astringency from the wood. Better than expected. I really like the cedar.

Pours a rich copper color with a white head and lace. Aroma of citrusy hops, herb and mint. In the taste, citrus and dry woodsy notes. Earthy and citrusy, cedar plank is an appropriate name because the beer is earthy, dry and almost oaky. The citrus is nice and bright, true to Green Flash's style. Medium bodied, crisp and dry with a solid hop bite. Wood tone like chewing on a pencil. Sawdust, citrus, bitterness. Overall, this is a really nice pale ale with a dry wood character. Enjoyable for those fond of hops.
