Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Extremely unimpressive,this is the last green flash product I'll ever buy.ive given them plenty of chances but other than palate wrecker and green bullet every other beer they make and try to come out with is just not worth my liver or my money.i highly suggest others do the same.extremely over rated brewery.

Poured a honey color in a Stone Imperial Pint glass: 3F head which resolved in a few minutes.

The aroma isn't strong: mild fruit.

Taste: excellent. Lots of tropical fruit. The hops in this beer brew a tangy grapefruit, citrus
and tropical fruit mix finished by a solid hoppy bitterness.

Overall: a very enjoyable pale ale- as the label says- it could be an IPA on another street.
I especially like the tropical fruit.

I drank a Green Flash Soul Style last night. I prefer this "pale ale" more- interesting fruit, and a better hoppy finish. T

The first Green Flash beer to ever disappoint. An intense piney sharpness that hits you first sip and doesn't relent. Overkill.

As the label states, this is an IPA by another name. Bold, hoppy aroma and enough bitterness to think this one is an IPA over a traditional pale ale. Reviewing as such, the floral, resin, and lightly citrus nose shines the strongest. Carbonation seems spot on, but the slightly watery mouth feel is a bit lighter than preferred. Overall a nice smelling and tasting "IPA" and easy sipper.
