Notes: Formerly Hop Odyssey: 30th Street Pale Ale

Hop-forward and San Diego inspired, this is our brewers’ homage to their local craft beer corridor. Uniquely floral and fruity notes from Warrior, Cascade and El Dorado hops mingle with a hint of crystal malt to build flavors of melon and a lingering grassy bitterness. Well-bittered and dry-hopped, 30th Street is a Pale Ale bold enough to suit the palates of hop heads in the land of sunshine and IPA.

"Best by 3/8/16"; drank 1/11/16 @ the Yarchives.

Semi-opaque orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a nice white head; strong lace.

Corn & lemon notes in the nose.

Medium thin mouthfeel.

Sugar & corn flavors up front; lemon bite on the finish.

Cloying & dry; I've had my last.

12 oz bottle into an IPA glass.

Pours hazy amber with 1.5 finger head. Substantial lacing.

Smell is grassy and floral.

Taste matches the aroma. Mostly grassy hop bite at the start and finish. A bit of cracker malt taste in the middle.

Highly carbonated with a sharp mouthfeel.

A pleasant beer for hopheads such as myself. However, I prefer the Soul Style and Tangerine Soul Style IPA's from Green Flash over this one. Would definitely drink again but not my favorite.

As an IPA guy by default, I like to try different pale ales as well. This beer pours golden amber. It smells floral and hoppy (which I love), though not so much so that I feel as though I'm sniffing a hops container. There is some carbonation visible. The taste starts off and follows through with some sharp bite, and the finish is one of carbonated hoppiness which might benefit from less carbonation.

Fairly solid beer all the way around. Nice sudsy appearance. Bitter, resiny hops balanced with some sweet malt. Long bitter finish. Drinkable.

Poured into a custom glass that i picked up at a yard sale, similar in style to sam adams' custom glasses or spiegelau glasses. Color is copper, head is brighter white with fine to medium size bubbles. Head laces the sidewalls of the glass.

Smell is balanced blend of biscuit and bready malt with some more earthy/grassy hops.

Taste is also nicely balanced with forward bready/biscuity malt, transitioning to the earthy/grassy hops; this particular 6 pack was a bit over the freshness date so the dryhops are starting to be less fresh but the background hop and malt tastes are great.

Mouthfeel is a bit sharp and biting on the tongue, nice for pale ale and reasonable at a beer of this strength.

Overall, a very good APA, nice maltiness and grassy hop flavors. Need to get this when its a bit fresher for the full effect.

The 30th Street Pale Ale is solid. It poured a hazy copper with white head that is not leaving much of a lace. The scent is sweet malt and touch of bitterness citrus. The taste follows suite. The Mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it's worth a try. ....enjoy.

Look: Transparent honey copper with a white head. Mild activity with some sediment floating throughout.

Smell: Grassy citrus, grapefruit zest, lemon rind, and malt. Smell is subtle.

Taste: Piney hops on the attack with complementary floral notes. Malt shines through for just bit before piney bitter rounds the beer out.

Feel: Medium bodied with lingering bitterness throughout. No alcohol.

Overall: The definition of a west coast pale ale. Hoppy yet incredibly drinkable. Great for any occasion and always a solid pick up.

Real solid APA, could even be classified as an IPA. Pours a hazy orange with a big, frothy long lasting head. Thick bands of lacing on the glass. Looks good. Aroma is citrus/tropical fruit hops and some sweet bready malt. Taste is very good. Strong hoppy presence balanced by rich bready malt. Mouthfeel is rich for the style and crisp. Very good level of bitterness. As an IPA it would be middle of the road. As an APA it is very good!!!
