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.

Pours a straw/holden color, lots of carbonation, head dissipates quickly. The beer is a lot lighter than I was expecting. It’s a very approachable, drinkable session beer for sure. Great flavor, crisp, clean. Good stuff.

Been wanting to try his beers for awhile. I was lucky to see it on tap at the Santa Barbara aiport. Having my doubts, being the recent publicity. I was quite suprised. Goldish yellow hue. Sweet malt hoppy aroma. Flavor of floral hops lingers on the tongue. A semi-dry finish ends this nicely made beer. Well done.

This is an APA that won’t knock you’re socks off. It is just about perfect for the style however. So if you are looking for the next bigger, hoppier APA this ain’t it. It is just a well executed APA with no bad character whatsoever. Pours a light amber with a good-sized white head and a fair amount of lacing. Aroma is citrus floral hops. Taste is mildly bitter citrus hops with an ideal amount of sweet malt. The perfect session APA for me. The problem is that it is hard to find in Oregon. I bought the last bottle at the store today. Just bought another bomber. As good as the first. Exceptional APA. Buy some now. Especially at the low 4.8% abv. Great session beer.

Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is grass, lemon, citrus hops. The taste is clear and crisp like a pilsner. Light and refreshing with a nice dirty hop bitterness. Not much malt going on here. A good regular pale ale for a summer day.

A- Pours a clean orange hue with a 1 finger sticky head which leaves lots of lacing. S- Hints of a malt presence. T- Light malt all the way through. Bits of caramel. M- High carbonation, medium bodied. D- This is very drinkable. A good lawnmower beer. Not too interesting but very smooth.

Aquilo (594) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Yellow, clear, white head. Aroma is citrus and rosemary. Flavor is moderately bitter. Very abrasive mouthfeel. It’s like liquid sandpaper. Overall, it’s not horrible.

12oz bottle. Pours light amber with a white head. Aroma is weak. Citrus, pine, moderate bitterness, watery mouthfeel. Nothing special but it's very drinkable. Would be pretty good on a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Sampled on draft at the Santa Barbara Airport. Pours out a nice golden copper color. Aroma is light and sweet of oranges and citrus. Hops are evident once you take a sniff. Taste is good, really clean and light but still very flavorful from the hops and slightly sweet caramel from the malt. This is a great example of a simple American Pale that really can be appreciated by many different people with different tastes. Reminded me of SNPA for how simple good flavor can really be sometimes. This is the kind of beer I would love to homebrew.
