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.

Aroma: Nice mellow hop resin. Little pine and floral Appearance: dark for a pale, but only a little. Golden in color Taste:citrus presence with a light bitter finish. On the dry side but not overtly and well within style. Very good Palate: very nice mouthfeel and presence. Hops add character without over loading it. Perhaps a little heavy for a summer session, but very quaffable. Overall: there are few beers I buy repeatedly these days as there is just so many new styles and offerings to try. This has become a solid go to for me when I just want a beer I can drink and enjoy. Never disappointed and on sale for less the $8. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aromas of lemon, grapefruit, pine. Clear yellow-orange with a mostly lasting, small white head. Dry, citrusy iced tea flavors, finishes a little crackery. Light-medium bodied.

penstemon (180) - Nevada, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Pours golden yellow with a white head. Aroma is orange, grapefruit, nice and fresh, maybe a bit of stone fruit, with some light malt. Taste is orange (almost Jell-O ish), some grapefruit, biscuit, and light bitterness. Pretty light body, nice carbonation. Not a lot of complexity here, but a straight forward, clean, citrusy APA. Could be a nice go-to.

4 oz pour on draft at B Side. Clear golden yellow with off-white head. Aromas of floral, citrus fruit and peel. Tastes of floral, citrus, light caramel, stone fruit. Medium body with a dry finish. Nicely balanced, could see myself throwing back a few of these.

jsquire (3614) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Pale golden color out of the bottle with very little of a white head. Bright citrus hop nose. Very flavorful pale ale with a strong bready backbone and lots of grapefruit rind, stone fruit and some grassy bitterness. Nice PNW pale ale.
