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.

Barreras (1524) - 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.

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.

Poured golden with nose of Banana, lemon and hops. The hop flavor is spot on and balanced with the light bitterness. A little floral for me at the end, but not bad..
