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.

Golden pale ale with a nice white head with fine beading of bubbles. Toffee and slightly nutty malt aroma with leafy hop aroma (slight citrus) Nice clean malt note with drying notes of spicy and firm bitterness. Finish: This is where this beer shines long lasting dry citrus pith like notes with some toffee like notes as well. Overall: A really well made pale ale. I would say enjoy at cellar temps makes the beer more enjoyable

There is more to the floral citrus smell and golden hue than actual flavor. It smells great, pine and a back note of citrus but becomes a watered down version of their other pale ales. Good if you are drinking a bunch of these over the course of a day. A bit lacking if you expect a hop note finish, deceptively smooth with no hops lingering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JBoan (176) - Arizona, USA - SEP 26, 2013
On tap @ BLD in Chandler, AZ. Pours a golden clear yellow with a good off-white head. Smell of this beer is clean hops, wet hay, some citrus fruit and mild sweet malt. Taste is citrus fruit and mild hops. Medium bodied, creamy mouthful with a pleasant bitter finish. Refreshing good pale ale.

Good beer, only had a taste. But I can tell you right now that is better than Sierra Nevada. Hopsy, yet smooth. I want to try this again, and will soon.

Draft at Brouwerij Lane, Fresh Pine and citrus hop aroma. Forward pine hops with some citrus on the palate, clean and crisp , nice dry finish, a well executed pale ale, easy drinking.

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.

This beer is awesome when it’s really cold. It’s very hoppy, and has a distinct flavor reminiscent of Sweetwater 420 but a little sharper.
