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.

Concealer (808) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Clear golden pours with clean foamy white head. Smells of citrus, spice, caramel and sweet grain. Flavor is sweet citrus and malt upfront with a bitter hop spice at the end.

Light golden pour white head. Bready malt aroma with some pine. Taste is light body but not watery. Some citrus and pine. Light piney grapefruit finish. Very clean pale, might of guessed it a lager if I was tasting blind.

Bottle into a tulip. Lightly, clouded, pale gold with an ample, fine, white head. Very floral head, some pine resin, bit of honey. Quite bitter, some slight underlying sweetness. Very long, dry finish. Crisp, very acidic. Some carbonation, medium amount of oiliness. Very good.

Hermod (3308) - Vantaa, FINLAND - OCT 17, 2014
355ml bottle. Bbe 02.07.15. Really? Clear golden, thick lasting white head. Malty., grassy, fruity aroma, could be fresher. Nice body for this abv . Flavor has malt, caramel, grapefruit, grass. Long bitter finish. Lost some of the hops for sure.

Baalzevuv (7) - - OCT 16, 2014 does not count
Piękna, zgrabna butelka, zachęca do spożycia. Barwa pilsowa, delikatne unoszące się bąbelki gazu, piana śnieżnobiała, drobnopęcherzykowa, średnioobfita, trwała, lacing niestety mizerny. Aromat mocno słodowy, aczkolwiek przywodzi również na myśl typowego weizena, szczególnie uderza zapach cytrusów, najprawdopodobniej grejpfruta. W smaku dominuje goryczka, oceniłbym IBU na około sześciedziąt/siedemdziesiąt. W tle gdzieś pobrzmiewa nuta skórki cytrusowej. Końcówka lekko ściagająca. Wysycenie średnie.

Very nice pale ale. Like an IPA without the overpowering hoppy bitterness.

Aroma: citrus (mango, lychee), pine, resin. Appearance: slightly hazy golden straw color, nice white head. Taste: medium bitterness (resin, grapefruit), citrus notes (lemon grass, grapefruit, mango), quite dry, some herbal notes, refreshing.

mkel07 (3555) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle from Brewski 041014. Sunset golden Amber colour with a modest white head. Aroma and flavour mirror each other with fruit and a hint of malt. Only moderate ABV but you would think it was higher given the alcohol kick at the end of this beer. Fills the mouth with flavour.
