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.

In my opinion this was the single version of the double jack. Everything seemed the same, but just turned down to 5-6 instead of 11. ( tried them both side by side.) Great citrusy hops, solid bready malts. The body was a little thiner, and the motuhfeel was a little less viscous, and the bitterness was quite a bit less intense and hit around the light to medium mark. Excellent session pale ale.

olio (8810) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2012
Draught @ Apex, Portland.
Pours clear golden color with small head. Aroma of pale malts, mild hops, fruits and some notes of nuts. Flavour of fruits, hops, malts, hay and nuts. Decent.

Cybercat (4745) - Georgia, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Comes out of the tap a pretty clear golden with a thick and rather persistent pale golden tan head. Aroma is strongly hoppy with a fruity undertone, mainly apple with hints of banana and malt. Hoppy flavor seems more IPA than pale ale, subtly malty and fruity, only a teensy bit bitter, quite refreshing in the Nevada summer heat! Texture has firm, smooth, slightly tingly body that leaves a subtle fizz behind on the lips and tongue. A 31-derful brew.

a lovely citrus and bready nose. nice grassy flavor with hints of various fruits like apple and pear. a medium to light body. a lovely finish with all sorts of flavor and a nice bit of hops but not overpowering.

A nice golden pale ale. One of my faves, perfectly able to drink this one all day. Just the right amount of hoppiness and sweet malts. Love it.

A perfect pale ale. The delicate balance of maltiness and hoppiness is easy to appreciate for even the novice drinker.

tcane7 (1670) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2012
On tap at Memphis Taproom. Pours clean golden. Nose is fairly pungent floral, grassy hops, sweet malt. Taste doesn’t quite live up to the nose but solid grassy hops, honey. Light body. Solid

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 6, 2012
On tap at Big Star in Chicago, used mostly as a back up to some fine whiskey and to wash down some smokin’ tacos. Nicely bitter, fresh, and not too hoppy. Crisp and refreshing.

Idiosynkrasie (5960) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2012
355ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, deep orangey golden colour with average frothy moderately lacing white head. Superb floral hop aroma, slightly sweet caramel malty undertone. Initially slightly biting hoppy taste, cristal clear middle part, a minimal fruity touch right before the finish. Very nice!

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Pours a brilliantly clear light golden amber color with a medium size head. The foamy cap is fairly dense and has a tan color. Carbonation is medium to weak. This is quite a pale pale ale. This beer does not lack for aromatics. The hop bouquet is big and bright with aromas of grass floral and pine. Malts are understated and weak. Flavor finds a nice hoppy ale, just right I think for a pale ale. Malts and hops balance nicely with a godd biscuit malt finish. Unfortunately on the palette the beer presents itself as watery and rather weak. Its smooth with a semi-dry finish. This is a California style APA and I couldn’t find any info about that style. Maybe a hoppy steam beer. I thought this beer pretty good even with the lighter taste, could be a session or yard beer perhaps.
