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.

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.

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!!

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.

mkade8883 (250) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2009
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.

elihapa (1533) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Pours gold, with a light citrus aroma that features lemon, orange, and grapefruit. Flavor is primarily citrus with a light, rounded body. What impresses me about this brew is its drinkability, which is superbly high. I couldn’t believe how much aroma and flavor was packed into such a light body. Great brew.

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - DEC 31, 2008
12oz. bottle, with thanks to EinWeizenbitte from over on BA for the bonus. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a choppy one finger white head that drifts to a whisp and a few large bubbles, moderate retention and lacing. Aroma is citrus and light caramel and floral. Flavor is more citrus, with a caramel malt backbone. An enjoyable APA, and continuing to enjoy Firestone as a brewer, thanks again Todd!

Pours a nice light copper-gold color nice white head. smells of cascade thin crisp flavor slight hop bitterness similar to Mirror Pond. This is a good beer a basic California Pale Ale smooth well balanced. A good representation of the style a little light on flavor for me but a good beer for sessioning.
