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.

Gold pour. Nice hops up front in the nose! Some unripe stone fruit hidden in the background and light cereal notes. Flavor is a nice mix of caramel malt flavors and hops. FW makes damn good stuff!

On tap at the brewery, served in a snifter. Pours clear straw-golden with a small, white head. The head fades slowly to a thin remnant, leaving a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has huge notes of pine, flowers, lemon and grass, along with a moderate amount of grain. The flavour starts out slightly sweet, but soon becomes moderately bitter. The finish is average in duration with a moderate spicy, peppery finish. On the palate, it is light-medium in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice pale ale with a generous, hoppy nose. Served very fresh at the brewery, and well worth another try. 2011-06-08

Bottle: Golden, small and stable off-white foamy layer, moderate to solid grapefruity-herbal hoppy nose with a slight bready background; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, not too dry; grapefruits and pale malt in the lingering dryish bitter finish. A good one......

On tap a friend’s wedding in Paso Robles. Pours a nice golden with a fluffy white head. Very nice hop aromas, and a delicious bitterness coupled with a sweet malty character. Medium bodied and very drinkable. Great way to enjoy a beautiful wedding!

INDASTRIA (129) - Berlin & Rome, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2011
Gold/yellow color, hazyy appearance, white foamy head. A little bit too carbonated and crisp maybe. quite strong herbs, floral and hops aroma. a little hint of mango and grapefruit on the nose is the advice of the main and predominant taste of this beer. Some tobacco and toffe too. Very refreshing but nothing special. To me this a quite, but not too much, bitter APA. The English side is almost missing.

Draft at Capones. Fantastic session beer. Well balanced hops. Small head, light crisp citrus hop aroma. Fantastic beer.

12 oz tulip glass cask pour at the Stone World Bistro in Escondido, California. Pour is a hazed golden orange, with a firm pretty looking 1 inch white head. Aroma is fresh soft citrus hops, and some toasted malt. Taste is the resin citrus hops, the soft malt, and a twinge of fruit sweetness. Palate is soft, unfiltered, and the low carbonation of the cask.

Really quality pale ale. Drinks really nicely. Palate is smooth. Hops are mild and malts are crisp and smooth. Nice pale ale.

On draft. I was told this was an IPA by the incompetent server, so will try to adjust my rating accordingly. Initially I was thinking this was one weak effort. But given the PA category, it’s OK, decent, but still far too bland for my tastes. Pours light amber with some floral hop aroma, but rather subtle. Crisp finish with some carbonation. A light, I suppose, refreshing but overall bland and boring pale ale in my opinion.
