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.

Terminus (3544) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Bottle-purchased at davidsons liquors in Littleton, Co-pours clear orange hue with a nice fluffy white soapy head. nose is very soft citrus, floral notes with of touch of carmel and lite bready notes. flavors follow suit-nice soft citrus and bread flavors with some carmel malt sweetness in there as well. very soft and pillowy body with soft carbonation. a great session beer here that would have been even better with a fresher sample (mine is 2 months old). Seemed a bit more punchy when i had it 2 weeks ago. Still world class beer here!

Shaney (2424) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2012
#954 Klarer, goldener Apfelsaft. Der Schaum ist in Nullkommanix verschwunden. Ale-typisches würziges Aroma. Doch was ist das? Im Antrunk dünn und geschmacklich mangels malzigem Unterbau als unausgewogen und bissig zu bezeichnen. Der Hopfen hat auch einen seifigen Einschlag. Absolut nicht mein Geschmack! Test vom 21.6.2011, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,9,6,6,9,6 - 6,80

Barreras (1506) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Pours a crisp yellow color with aroma of hops. There is a slight grassy smell as well. Taste is very clean, typical pale ale bitterness that disappears quickly than reappears on the tongue after the swallow. A tasty pale ale that hits the mark of good taste and freshness.
Earlier Rating: 7/26/2009 Total Score: 3.6
Pours a golden amber with scents of malt and mild fruit. Delicious taste, mild bitterness with a refreshing aftertaste. Mouth is left with a sweet flavor that holds throughout the beer. A good pale ale that has jump to the top of my favorite beers list.

skmikeg (1678) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2012
pours a golden amber with a one finger white head. Aroma is of floral hops, pine, citrus, and some bready biscuit malt. Taste is of pine, citrus, some bredy biscuit malts, and some setzler water in the background. Has a medium body with a slighty fizzy mouthfeel, and a dry, semi well hopped, semi bitter finish. overall, a pretty nice, sessionable pale ale.

greatscott75 (21) - California, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Pours a golden-amber with a amazing 2 finger head from a 12oz bottle. Nose is a mild sweet pine. Taste is what you would expect of a fine IPA. Balanced hops with malt finish. Great IPA.

gold/copper pour with lots of thick white head - aromas of pine and citrus and ooh, it smells so good I can’t wait to taste it! - heavy pine/grapefruit flavors lead a complex malt/hops mixture with a nice finishing malt and grapefruit.
