It sounds like Eastern Iowa should have all of them except maybe the Cedar Plank as that sounds a bit more limited, but I could be wrong on that front.

Long version courtesy of http://www.beerpulse.com:

(San Diego, CA) – Green Flash Brewing Co. announced this week that the latest beer in its Hop Odyssey / Epic Journey (which is it?) series will make its taproom debut on June 3rd. Distribution will follow soon thereafter. There are still three more beers to be released in this collection later in the year. Below is a sneak preview.

WHITE IPA
EPIC JOURNEY, LIMITED RELEASE
While developing the recipe for our White IPA, we lined up malted wheat and more than a dozen hop varieties to select the three hops with the most citrus character: Simcoe, Amarillo and El Dorado. A citrus hop explosion leaps from the glass with big tangerine aromas up front, while hop flavors of bitter orange zest dominate and linger to the finish.

INDIA PALE ALE
IBU’S: 95 ABV: 7.0% AVAILIBILITY: JUN-JUL

CITRA SESSION
EPIC JOURNEY, LIMITED RELEASE
Our Citra Session™ IPA is brewed with high-quality Marris Otter and Vienna malt but the flavor is dominated by the Citra hops introduced throughout the boil and again in the dry hop for maximum aroma intensity. Notes of lemon, orange and grapefruit make this hop-laden brew a perfectly potable summer session IPA.

INDIA PALE ALE
IBU’S: 40 ABV: 4.5% AVAILIBILITY: AUG-SEP

[No Label Approval Yet]

CEDAR PLANK
EPIC JOURNEY, LIMITED RELEASE
Cedar Plank™ Pale is the result of fresh innovation applied to San Diego favorite, 30th Street Pale®. This well-hopped brew is aged with Spanish Cedar, which imparts an intense cigar-box cedar aroma. Peppercorn spiciness and tannins from the wood enhance the bitter hop flavors with a long, lingering finish. A refined twist on a best-selling local beer.

INDIA PALE ALE
IBU’S: 44 ABV: 6.0% AVAILIBILITY: OCT-NOV

SYMPOSIUM IPA
EPIC JOURNEY, LIMITED RELEASE
Originally created for the 2008 Craft Brewers Conference, Symposium IPA™ was brewed in true San Diego form, with input from several local brewers. Extravagantly hopped with Simcoe, Tomahawk, Amarillo, Cascade and Centennial layered throughout the brewing process, this beer is pale copper and medium bodied.

INDIA PALE ALE
IBU’S: 75 ABV: 7.0% AVAILIBILITY: OCT-NOV
