COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale 31 is an ode to our home state of California—the 31st to be named in fact. Beer may not be associated with terroir the way wine is, but we believe that where we’re from impacts how our beers taste. This California Style Pale Ale represents the bold yet approachable spirit that embodies our state. A crisp floral hop aroma precedes a medium-body and clean finish.

Aniela (4207) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2013
Draught at The Blind Tiger NYC sept 2012. Clear golden beer with a offwhite head. Hoppy aroma with som orange hints. Hoppy and nice bitterness that fades away.

Scipio (830) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a white head that rapidly dissipates. The aroma is more subtle, but it is enticing. Pine, grapefruit, lemon, and grass. It seems to be more along the line of a mild IPA, only better than your lower grade ones. Taste is quite bitter throughout. Mostly grapefruit with some milder pine. There is a little bit of a soapy taste in there as well, especially at the end. Outside of this, while more simple, its actually pretty tasty. This one is crisp and refreshing. Light in body, with a good amount of lively carbonation. I have to say I enjoyed this. It is mostly straightforward and not very complex, but that is ok. Its a great session beer.

poisoneddwarf (2283) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - JAN 17, 2013
12 oz bottle from a six pack bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Bottled on 7/31/12. Shit, just noticed that. Pours hazy cantaloupe with a medium white lacy head. Nice citrusy nose; I’m also getting SweeTarts and some age after it sits for a few minutes. Tastes a little past its prime. I really wish I would have noticed that born on date before my purchase. It’s a little sweet and a little bitter. Other than the noticeable age, this tastes pretty clean. Highly carbonated and light-bodied. Let me re-rate a fresher version of this when I get a chance.

MichaelAwesome (6445) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. Definitely a quality beer but surprisingly doesn’t hit my points as this one is way too dry and too bitter in the end. Aroma is pure hops but nit in a sweetish and fruity way. Therefore I’d still say that this one is a good one but not huge. In any way.

McTapps (6482) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Clear light golden in colour with fluffy head. Nose is absolutely delicious of spices and hops. Taste of pepper, thyme, rich hops, cloves and bay leaves. Very delicious one, little bit too dry in the palate.

kingstoni (1961) - FINLAND - JAN 3, 2013
Bottle. Slightly hazy copper color with a foamy white head. Aroma is fruity hops, mostly peach with some freshly cut grass. Nice amount of hops in taste. Fruity finish with some sweetness and bitterness. Not that complex but well made and refreshing.

Dogbrick (11470) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 16, 2012
This brew is a clear golden color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of hops and bready malt. Light, crisp body with flavors of floral hops, biscuit malt and a touch of fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. Decent lighter APA all around.

dagimp (951) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2012
On tap at Teresa's next door. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a very pale light golden. A few fingers of head and a wee bit o lacing. Mild grassy aroma. Mouthfeel is light but way too carbonated. Taste is grass and bubblegum. A little dirt too. Overall, meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
