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.

MiP (14562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 13, 2013
Bottle, 4.9%. Very piney aroma. Clear shiny yellow colour. Big plasticky but stable white head. The flavour is also piney, but mostly teaish, like those teaish sweets. Caramelly tea, I guess. But balanced off by a good bitterness.

brokensail (14036) - San Leandro, California, USA - SEP 4, 2011
A: The pour is a hazed golden orange color with a sticky white head and nice lacing. S: Smells a bit sweet, but there’s plenty of citrus and even a few tropical fruit notes. Mild grass with a nice pine note to it as well as a light floral scent. Some bready malt gives a little body. T: Like the nose, it’s a bit sweet, but it works fine for a pale ale. Lots of citrus hops (especially orange and tangerine, a little less grapefruit). Some pine bitterness as well as a little bit of floral character. M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. O: I really like this beer, a solid pale ale that I know will pretty much always be good.

bhensonb (12945) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Tap at Hopmonk. Pours amber with a fruity/floral aroma. It tastes hoppy in an Over the Pond way. Flavor is lightly spiced in the finish. Drinks very well.
Earlier Rating: 3/9/2007 Total Score: 3.5
Aroma of evergreen and grapefruit. Maybe a little malt. Light golden amber color with a white head that didn’t linger. Starts with light to medium mouthfeel, with dilute grapefruit and pine hop. Underlying caramel malt. Nice bitterness in the finish.

argo0 (12496) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 13, 2007
(12oz bottle) Crystal clear light amber body topped by medium off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, floral/orange, some caramel, light grapefruit. Taste is medium sweet, orange/grapefruit, some caramel, light pineapple, bread. Light-medium body, quite drinkable. This is straightforward, but flavorful and well done -- fits squarely within the APA style. On some days there’s a decent chance I’d call it boring and give it around a 3.2, but for whatever reason, it works well tonight.

Tmoney99 (12402) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Bottle sampled from shigadeyo at the Dilly Deli. Poured clear pale color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate smooth sour citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Moderate bitter flavor with a smooth medium bitter finish of average duration. Solid drinkable brew.
