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.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2009 12 oz. bottle. I may have rated this beer a bit high. This is my "go-to" beer, or session beer, so I may be biased. Golden color with thin white head. Aroma is mostly Cascade hops - that familiar mild and citrusy scent thats like an old friend. Flavor is mostly the hops, but amazingly very little bitterness. Some honey and fruity sweetness balance it out. Crisp, crisp, crisp! Medium light body with average carbonation. The moderate ABV and the fact that its crisp and refreshing without compromising any flavor or aroma makes for what is probably the most drinkable beer Ive ever had.

Świetny aromat chmielowy, cytryna, grejpfrut, winogrona, bardzo czysty i zachęcający. W smaku wytrawne, z wyraźną goryczką w stylu amarillo (pestka grepfruta), za którą nie przepadam, ale tu była ok. Finisz za to lekko męczący trawiasty. Niemniej jednak nie przegięte, orzeźwiające, idealne na plaże itd. No i dla hopheadów...

12 oz. bottle. Appearance: small white head that diminishes almost instantly, good lacing, clear golden-yellow color. Aroma: floral, resin, grass, faint malty bread smell. Palate: light body, thin and dry texture almost wine-like, average carbonation, light bitter finish that is rather short lived given the style. Taste: fruity sweetness at the front, followed by orange rind bitterness on the back end. Overall, very refreshing beer and different; the feel is really nice.

Gold Yellow Color, Big Head, Lots of Thin Lacing. Citrus and Floral Hop Aroma. Semi Sweet, Malty, Bready, Citrus, Hops Bitter. Slightly Over carbonated. Once Fizz Goes away it is much easier to drink. Mellow and enjoyable. Pretty Good, Worth A Try.

A good pale ale for those who don’t go for the type. A tad dry with vanilla notes and citrus, grapefruity, hops that come through on the front of the tongue, with slight pine notes mingling with the hops at the back of your tongue. A good brew for a hot day, very mildly malty and not at all aggressive.

Thanks to brewblackhole for this one! Pours a wonderful golden yellow color with a white head. AWESOME crisp hop aroma along with caramel and toffee. Great clean hop flavor to it as well. Nice malt backing as well. This would be a perfect brew to sit outside with on a warm summer day!

Draft @ Yardhouse. Aroma has biscuit, some light floral, but pretty light. Taste is a pleasant fruity hop profile with the bready malts showing up in the middle and taking over. Finish is slightly bitter, a little watery. Decent quaffer.

A pretty good APA. Light amber color and almost no head. It has a good hop presence and quite a bit of malt sweetness as well. Somewhat boring palate/mouthfeel and the sweetness may be a bit much. Smooth and pretty well rounded. Extremely drinkable and better than I anticipated.
