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.

12oz. bottle served in a nonic. Best by 01 Dec 15 printed on the label (yikes). Pours a dull copper hue with a translucent clarity and a loose, quarter inch, off-white head that quickly recedes into a soapy slick. Nose is fairly subdued - some piney and spicy notes. Taste expresses caramel, wet cardboard and a light piney/herbal quality. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a mild, even, carbonation and a trace of oiliness. Overall, not bad - probably past its prime. I definitely need to revisit with a fresher sample.

Good, hoppy pale that lends itself to drinking multiples on a hot day.

22 oz. Bomber

Pours a very nice clean/clear dark golden yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a pretty nice small creamy off-white head, which leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, with a slight malt note, citrusy. The taste is very nice hoppy, slightly malty, with a very nice citrus note. Medium body, with a very nice bitter/dry finish. Overall, this is a very tasty APA for the ABV. Recommended!

Mostly yellow, slight pithy orange, almost a full inch of white head. Aroma, given warrior, cascade, el dorado, not the most pungent for aroma although they have exceptional roles in taste and mouthfeel.

And those are solid, citrus and grapefruit, nice light pale toasted malt, dry finish. The bitterness was nothing to sneeze at but didn't dominate the mouthfeel. Good stuff, I bought another 6 pack once they went to 12oz bottles after having it on tap first.

Not the style pale ale I prefer at all. Smell and flavors taste old. Best before Feb 2016 and drinking in Dec 2015 so it can't be old can it? Just tastes like the old /sup par shelf turd hoppy beers I recall from 5-10 years ago. Not on board with this.
