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.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - MAR 9, 2008
On tap at PP san clemente. Light gold amber in color. Light hoppy aromas. Some easy malt sweetness with a slight bitterness and herbal grassiness. Very thin on your palate. Nice finish.

dwm1034 (753) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle poured into dollar store tulip. Clear golden yellow with thin head. Some flowery hops but very mild. Crisp and slightly sweet...not your usual Firestone. A little too watery / mild for an APA...good but not great.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Clear golden copper color. Nice head that quickly dissipates. Some lacing. Grassy/apple aroma with a woodsy/eathy note. I also get some green olive in the nose. This beer is soft on the palate. Malty with some oak background. Light silky finish. This is a good around the hose beer. It isn’t a palate braker.

bmerz (741) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 13, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 Bottle 3 months old. Clear gold color with soft lasting head and lace . Vibrant floral and citrus greats the nose with a surprising light anise, menthe, or pine aroma. Flavor is cool citrus element, clean grain and light tropical hops. Feel fresh, lively, and full. Really nice. Could drink these forever. Just what I want a place to be.

Linc (739) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2007
Pleasantly hoppy aroma. Very pleasing balance of malt and citrus hop flavours, though sweetness is a bit on the high-side making for a slightly cloying after palate. A bit too syrupy to be a great session beer.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2005
Amber pour with a medium to small fluffy off-white head and some lacing. Floral aroma with some hops, perfume and a touch of grapefruit. Balanced but underwhelming flavors of malt, citrus and vanilla with a mildly hoppy backbone. Finish was dry and short. An average APA but but without real character. Easy to drink but not easy to remember - plenty of better choices out there.

EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Bready, biscuit malt, and grapefruit, floral aroma. Biscuit and light caramel malt flavor. Citrus hop flavor; more floral in the finish. Lingering bitterness and fruit.
