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.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2008 pours a nice hazy amber with a whiteish tan head. nice crisp citrusy, clean hoppy aroma. milder than other APA’s. has the nice pale ale taste, just more gentle. citrus, hops, floral. flavor dissipates somewhat quickly. light and smooth bodied. a good refresher. a little bubbly. head disappears quickly, but some nice lacing apparent. i would classify it as a ’light’ APA. reccomended for APA lovers as a little bit of a change. reccomended to non-beer drinkers for a reason to try some good beers.

Sammy (8659) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2007
Sessionable, serviceable, drinkable pale. Floral and citrus and malty aroma. Light colour with short-lasting foam. Tasty and citrus hops comcommitant with aggressive carbonation.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 4, 2007
12oz bottle. Medium orange-yellow color with a small white head. Heavy citrus and pine Cascade hop aromatics. Citric metallic hop flavor dominates. Tinges of crystal malt peer through, provide some balance. Bracing bitterness in the finish, fades quickly to a residual sweetness. Mouthfeel is fairly light, somewhat dry.

BelgianBeerGal (3196) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Bottled. Pours a pale, slightly hazy orange tone. Aroma is all floral hops. Crisp flavor, with a well balanced bittereness and floral tones. Nice finish too.

A great pale ale if you like a little cascade flower up your nose. If you don’t like cascade... don’t try it. But if you do you’ll love it. A taste sensation!

Wegro (331) - Fresno, California, USA - SEP 7, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2009 pale gold appearance. crisp hop flavor, citrus in the flavor with some small malt accents, toffee and some other shit. I love this kind of hoppy pale ale. finishes clean and crisp, bitter but not overdone. kind of one dimensional and a little lighter in the mouth than SNPA but this a good one!

A prickly bitterness is a good way to describe this. I like that sort of finish. Man, Piscator knows his stuff. thanks for sharing this with me. It was great

Gold. Some head. Hoppy aroma. Mild hoppiness with a good sharp taste midway through but doesn’t last.
