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.

A nice pale ale with a great hop medley. I usually really love dry hopped ales, but this one was a bit too subtle for me. Very floral, crisp beer with a lot of character, but not as bitter as I’d like. Pours a gorgeous yellow orange with golden edges. A winner but not a favorite.

Tasted at Chicago Craft Beer Festival. Clear golden color with a white head faint floral aroma. Citrus taste with a bitter bite. A sharp, tasty pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2006
This aroma offers the nose a smell of hops, peaches, grapefruit, and molasses. It is a golden solution with very little head offered. This thin bitter sour beer produces a taste of hops and grapefruit that fades leaving a mild hint of molasses lingering on the tongue.

jksipa (407) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle at Third Base Round Rock. Clear pale amber and a small white head that leaves good lace. Light nose with subdued grass and citrus. Low sweet malt start followed by a medium bitterness. Medium mouth with slightly soft carbonation and a short dry finish. Inoffensive and easy to drink but nothing outstanding.

Hugi (406) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - SEP 28, 2013
Orange-golden and clear with a medium creamy head. Aroma of citrus/grapefruit, tropical fruits (pineapple, melon), spices (maybe cinnamon, maybe a little vanilla), maybe almonds. Tastes very fruity as described, decent bitterness, floral and resiny hop-qualities. Bitter and a little sweet ending with a good moutfeel.

Saeglopur (405) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de. Dark golden, clear body, with big, frothy, creamy, white head. Aroma of mango, passion fruit, grapefruit, pine, grass, candy. Tastes of lemon zest, grapefruit, pine and a tasty, smooth malt backbone of caramel, biscuit, grass and some candy. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a medium carbonation and it finishes medium bitter, with grapefruit, pine and some candy. A refreshing, greatly balanced example of a west coast Pale Ale, that has tasty citric fruit and pine notes and also a determined malt backbone. Excellent!

cgreb (402) - Marburg, GERMANY - JAN 29, 2012
bottle - clear golden beer with a white head with tons of american hops aroma! Very nice! Flavour is malty what is balanced by a decent bitterness. But bitterness is not extreme. Medium carbonation.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - SEP 8, 2006
12oz bottle poured a clear pale gold color with a tiny white head. The aroma is light citrus hops and some small amounts of caramel. The taste is nice and smooth not leaning too much to the hops with a nice balance. A good pale that is clean, but it might benefit to add more hops.

natejgood (397) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Pours a clear medium golden color with an average snow white head. Aroma of citrus and hops. Pretty yummy aroma. The flavor is somewhat less hoppy that the aroma would lead on (maybe to be expected for a dry hopped ale), but it is good. Maybe a little bit sweet without enough hops to cut it, but not bad. Crisp and easy to drink.

385ml bottle (Imported by Braufactum). Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, light orange, very nice. Appearance is pale golden with a light white head. Taste is bitter and light sweet. A very good, however light watery, palate. Light carbonation, very nice dryness. Overall a superb APA.
