Cedar Plank is a hop forward American pale ale aged in Spanish cedar barrels. It's another really solid, delicious beer from Green Flash. The beer pours a bright but cloudy, amber color with a ton of foamy, creamy head. The aroma is citrus and pine hops, a little bit of vanilla malt in the background. Big, spicy burn on the front of the tongue, and a warm, rich malt hits mid-sip. Then the character of the wood and some punch from the alcohol close it out. Green Flash does hop forward beer as well as anyone.
