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.

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.

brokensail (10527) - Orange County, 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.

Medium body with a slick texture. Moderate bitter flavor with a smooth medium bitter finish of average duration. Solid drinkable brew.
