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.

jrodooo5 (1485) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - APR 9, 2012
Pours a clear orange with a thick white head that slowly fades to a nice lacing around the glass. The aroma is dominated by citrusy hops & the taste follows suit. There is some nice hoppiness upfront followed by a nice clean & crisp finish. Very well balanced and quite tasty. I’m typically not a huge pale ale fan but this beer is quite good and I would highly recommend.

Draft at Churchkey. Pours a clear orange. Nose and flavor are marked by peach, bread apricot, and light European hop presence. Such a nice balance of sweetness and non-aggressive hop bitterness. So balanced, and delicious.

PhillyCraft (5752) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2012
On cask at Churchhills, compliments of the bar keep for sharing my Churchhills Finest hour with him and other patrons. Pour is a clear yellow gold, medium white head. Lacing was alright at first but did not last. Aromas of pale malt, grassy non aggresive hops, cucumber. Taste is honey, sweet malt bill. Alright lacked flavor and carbonation coming from the cask. Boring finish.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle is clear yellowish orange with nice lacing white head, aroma brings notes of some lemon, bready notes, touch of grapefruit. Taste is nice bitter lemon peel, touch of pine and grass, some biscuit and bready notes, goes into a touch of grapefruit, finishing fairly clean. Nice.

A nice citrusy pale ale. A bit too sweet but pretty drinnkable. Golden orange, small head with lots of lace. Full bodied with mild carbonation.

badhack (518) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Pours golden and clear. Some head and carbonation. Taste and aroma are both express pine and citrus. With a very strong pine in the taste and a cooling menthe flavor in the finish. There is a healthy dose of toasty malt up front as well. This is a nice pale ale but the pine is a little overpowering for me and comes off a little unbalanced. Should make for some interesting food pairing.
