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.

Thisis12ptfont (1103) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Strong hops on the nose with some crisp bread-like malts behind it. Light gold in color with a fast dissipating foam. Assertive hops greet the palate followed by a steady caramel and biscuit malt flavor. Overall, this is a well done pale ale. Simple yet, assertive and balanced. I’d give this a B rating.

jstraw (1962) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Pale gold with good, foamy, white head / Bright nose of soap, citrus, and pine / Light to medium body, a tad thin, some resin, good balance and bitter finish / Weak but fine flavors of soap, grapefruit, honey, and orange peel / Just a little too light, but wouldn’t turn one down.

abemorsten (3508) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2012
Small bottle kindly shared by Valeria at Galeria Kaufhof Berlin Alexanderplatz. Clear golden with a white film. Heavy dry hopped nose where the cascade seems to dominate. Medium bodied hoppy juice.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 16, 2012
Pours a clear, pale copper, small white, fizzy head that doesnt stick around. Small bubbles pepper the body. Aroma is fruit, malt, caramel, honey and a nuance of sour yeast - husky sweetness cut with the hops. Quite clean and crisp and a little dry in the mouth. A bready, malt sweetness offset by the bitterness of hops that are big in the middle and finish, but never overdone. More bready malt in the finish. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied and quite lively carbonation. Another nicely balanced, quite sessionable APA.

lusikka (7681) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2012
355 ml bottle. Rated on 13.10.2012.
Pours a golden colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of really strong and fresh hops and grass. Flavour of strong bitterness, citrus, grass, floral notes and caramel. Medium bodied, high carbonation and a grassy bitter finish. Summery and refreshing.

UncleKorm (1218) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2012
12oz bottle poured clear golden hue w/ a med-large frothy white head and excellent lacing. Big aromas of floral hops, pine, citrus and a biscuity malt. Taste is a crisp light sweetness initially with a dry hop bitterness of short duration on the finish. Flavors of grain, biscuit, pine, and lime. Body is medium, a slightly dry texture, lively carbonation. A lovely beer.

Strykzone (6630) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2012
12 oz. bottle from arminjewell in trade. This is very clear light golden. A one finger white head leaves sticky lacing. The nose is not big but is dry and nice with floral and citrus notes. Some unusual bitterness is citrus and is dry. Pale malts that are biscuit. Floral and citrus hops. A little honey, too. The hops grab the tip of the tongue and hang on. This is a hop head’s delight. Very nice with a sessionable ABV.

clear orange color. Good hoppy, pine and citrus nose. Nice and easy drinking with a good hop character. Excellent pale ale
