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.

Nice Pale ale with floral and citrus notes that have Cascade written all over it. So far best of the 3 brews with the Hopmonk name.

Reid (2012) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 18, 2008
22 oz bomber, 4.8% alc. Clear golden ale,with a nice sized, creamy white head. Lovelly hop aromas, though it is more "lemony" hops than expected in the typical APA. Very tasty, again the malts to begin with then a very very pleasing lemony hop finish. Simple but nice. Great mouthfeel..not boring. Very very drinkable stuff. This is another of those "extra" pale ales that some West coast breweries come out with and are placed in the APA category..i really think they come into their own as British style "Golden Ales" Whatever..very nice beer.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 29, 2008
22 oz bomber from Market of Choice for super cheap! Pours the exact color of apple juice with a pillowy white head that evaporates nearly on impact. Very hopped for a pale ale and with a long, lingering aftertaste that is crisp as the fall weather here in Oregon. Perhaps my biggest caveat is that the alcohol doesn’t even register, I might as well be drinking the aforementioned apple juice. Also perhaps a little too carbonated.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2008
From a bottle--Poured a clear copper-amber body with a small bubbly, whitish head. Hop spiced with bold Cascades that gave off a grapefruit and mild pine nose. Sharp hop bitterness up front that travels toward back of tongue, lingering with creamy yeastiness. Fairly clean, sharp NW hops presence. Finishes with little other than faint bready malt and full-on hops bitterness.

ChazMania (658) - Pasadena, California, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Bottled. Very good and crisp flavor. I recognize the hop profile from their Union Jack. What hop is this? I like it. Very easy drinking, kind of beer you could drink all day. With a low abv it would be easy to do and it tastes good!

iowaherkeye (2698) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - SEP 30, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2008 On tap @ the Hopmonk. Clear orange with a one finger off-white head, fading to a thick ring and thin film. Aroma of citrus and floral hops with a biscuity malt backbone. Flavor is much the same with a little more perfumey floral notes. Bitterness peaked at a 3 and finished slightly earthy. Light to moderate carbonation with a light body. Good APA.

luvcasks (178) - USA - SEP 29, 2008
Golden pale ale with a nice white head with fine beading of bubbles. Toffee and slightly nutty malt aroma with leafy hop aroma (slight citrus) Nice clean malt note with drying notes of spicy and firm bitterness. Finish: This is where this beer shines long lasting dry citrus pith like notes with some toffee like notes as well. Overall: A really well made pale ale. I would say enjoy at cellar temps makes the beer more enjoyable
