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.

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.

GSAP (583) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2014
Smaak en aroma liggen niet ver uit elkaar. Vol limoen, sinaasappel schil, passievrucht en een zweem kaneel. Geen boem en bam in de mond, maar allemaal prima is balans, verfrissend, zelfs nasmaak is aangenaam bitter. Jammer van dat minimale kraagje op oranje.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 14, 2005
Quite a surprisingly nice beer. Medium golden copper with a medium head. Pleasant hops and malt aromatics with good hops bitterness with character, medium malt flavors, and a bit of earthiness from the oak barrel fermentation.

hopwine (559) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Pours blonde with one inch head. Delicate balance between moderate citric bitterness and light grain. Crisp, dry, and sessionable. Very flavorful for a sub 5% beer. Pretty much perfect pale ale.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Poured into a pint glass with a golden colour and a medium fizzy white head. Aroma is grapefruit hops with malts lingering in the background. Initial taste of crisp grapefruit and citrus hops and medium malts. Good balance with the active carbonation. Decent head retention. Finishing with a bitter hops that linger on the palate, finishing dry. Very impressed wit this american pale ale.

jksipa (542) - 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.
