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.

This is an APA that won’t knock you’re socks off. It is just about perfect for the style however. So if you are looking for the next bigger, hoppier APA this ain’t it. It is just a well executed APA with no bad character whatsoever. Pours a light amber with a good-sized white head and a fair amount of lacing. Aroma is citrus floral hops. Taste is mildly bitter citrus hops with an ideal amount of sweet malt. The perfect session APA for me. The problem is that it is hard to find in Oregon. I bought the last bottle at the store today. Just bought another bomber. As good as the first. Exceptional APA. Buy some now. Especially at the low 4.8% abv. Great session beer.

APPEARANCE: Pours a slightly hazy gold color with a small white head that dissipates quickly. There is a small amount of lacing. SMELL: Pleasant aroma of orange, apricots and sweet dough. Also some pine. TASTE: Smooth slightly sweet with nice balance of citrusy hops. Finishes with a little grassy bitterness. MOUTHFEEL Medium body with slight syrupy texture. Moderate carbonation. Finishes a bit dry. DRINKABILITY: Very easy drinking beer. Not too sweet and not to bitter. Nothing exciting but a great session beer. NOTES: BBCSD-0812-Dan

12oz bottle (ABV is listed as 4.6%). Poured a medium and cloudy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of citrus, grainy, floral, and some breadiness. Tastes of ligther citrus, grainy and the same floralness. Thinner body.

DuffMan (7559) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 23, 2009
Bottle. Bright orange-golden. Resinous citrus hop aroma. Lighter palate of equally portioned grainy malts (light caramel) and resinous hops with a medium bitter finish.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - JAN 22, 2009
Much better than the ratings give it credit for. A little light in color plus a small rapidly disappearing head. Aroma is of malt and citrus hops. Taste has some grapefruit, some pine, malt. Explodes in the mouth with a full body. Easily quaffable. A great session beer.

IPAsavedMYlife (345) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Out of the bottle from a liquor store near LAX. Pours a beautiful clear golden orange. Slight carbonation, slightly off-white head. Filtered. What a palate, much like Sierra Nevada but more robust. The lower alcohol content is quite suprising. Fantastic Pale Ale. Cheers!!

TomDecapolis (4604) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JAN 14, 2009
Pours a nice golden amber with a medium creamy off white head that laced. Aroma was very floral, citrus, nice caramel malt touch. Flavor was floral and citrus, bready malt with a nice caramel balance. Moderate hop bitterness.

HighWine (955) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2009
12 oz. bottle of Pale 31. Gold color with thin head. Nose and taste is floral with honey. A subtle hop bitterness lingers on the palate. The floral hops were great and could be more prominent. Would have also liked a little more malt backbone.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2010 Pours gold, with a beautiful hop aroma. Easily drinkable beer, but with a nice rounded malt sweetness. Nice combination of malt flavor and hop aroma.
