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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2006
Bottle. Decently hoppy, but not overly. This shows less aromatic hop notes than most APA’s. This isn’t necesarily a bad thing, as it quite drinkable. Some light toffee sweetness, leading to the lightly flowery, lightly earthy hop characters, its drinkable, if not overly exciting.

via trade with IrishBoy - Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. Nice citrus hop aroma. Light malt sweetness comes through the hop flavoring. Light to medium body. Very easy to drink. I like it. Thanks Richard.

hopscotch (9727) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2007 Bottle... Clear, light golden ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. Malty, fruity nose with notes of grapefruit, vanilla, toffee and a hint of oak. Good balance. Mild to medium sweetness and bitterness with a little vanilla, toffee and oak. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Crisp, fairly clean finish. More like an EPA than APA.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Draught. Clear light orange color with white head that left a thin lace. Attractive citrusy hop nose. Delicious malty caramel flavor with buttery toffee finish. This pale ale stands out. Very tasty.

On tap @ Firestone Walker poured a clear gold with a small diminishing white head. Aromas of carmel, citrus and pine. Palate was light bodied. Flavors of carmel, lemon and a hint of orange with a lingering moderately bitter finish.

chadje (182) - California, USA - JUL 27, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2012 Pours a nice copper color with a good white head. A sweet fruity hoppy scent and taste that is citrusy, sweet and damn good.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Bottled. Beer is a clear, medium orange with a small, frothy, white head that vaporizes immediately. The aroma is malty with light notes of toasted grain; Hoppy with a moderate notes of lemon, flowers and iced tea, trace of resin/pine. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter with a longer than average, lightly-to-moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly sweet finish. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is fizzy. I have really enjoyed the delicate, refreshing notes in this beer. It’s highly drinkable, yet still reasonably complex.

This is a solid pale ale. Medium head and a nice hoppy aroma even if its a little thin on body.
