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.

Pours a rich golden color with a ncie fluffy head. Fresh citrus aroma with some orange marmalade. Assertive hop flavor is characterized bystrong lemon/lime flavor but balanced by a sweet malt component. Finish dry and crisp. Not bad.

FlacoAlto (3759) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 25, 2006
UPDATED: APR 3, 2006 The beer is a gold color and only has a wispy, pale draught head. This beer has an incredible, fresh, hop aroma. I get notes of apricots, some peach, and of course some of the typical citrus notes. The aroma is just quite striking, and I really like the mix of fruit character that the hops evoke here. The taste is pretty light and refreshing and has a light sweetness to it that really helps to accentuate the fruity flavors from the hops. The hop character is definitely dominated by a fresh fruity character that is most evocative of peaches and apricots. This is really quite nice.

The beer pours out a clear, dark gold color with a low foaming cream-colored head. Wisps of it stayed around until I was at the bottom of the glass. The aroma is noticeable almost immediately upon opening the bottle, with scents of citrus and floral. The taste was really goodwith citrus-like bitterness from the presence of hops, but at the same time wasn’t so citrusy that the line between beer and fruit juice was blurred. Although the citrus-like flavor of grapefruit or lemons is what dominates at first, on the second or third taste I noticed more balance with the malts, bringing in an almost under-taste of sweet grains. The finish is dry and sweet at the same time, with little kick as the carbonation level is medium to low.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Bottle poured a dark amber with a good head and sticky lacing. Good hopy, citrus aroma. Body is a bit watery, with a weak hops and citrus flavor. Not bad. Would make a good, easy drinking everyday beer.

sloth (2447) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 11, 2005
Small offwhite head, short lived with scattered lacing. Good clarity, light copper color. Light hop and malt nose, citrus, light pine and a touch earthy with some grainy malt notes. Body is med/light. Citrusy hop flavors, lightly grainy and doughy malts are seemingly well balanced. Finish is fairly dry. A nice APA.

Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2005
Barely average IPA, pour was nice golden amber color. Slight off hop presence in the aroma, with more malt than anticipated. Well balanced, but just doesnt really click with the buds.
