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.

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!!!
