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.

12oz bottle from Hippo Beers. Golden orange, good head. Corn hop aroma. Grains resin hop flavour. Understated and well balanced. Light and refreshing. A very well balanced beer.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2008 Original score 4.0 Another fine-smelling ale from Firestone Probably one of the hoppier pale ales available (also not really that pale). The hoppiness is bubbly and lofty, kinda like Loft from Fat Tire. Leaves a long-lasting tingly-ness around your entire mouth. Two for two so far from this brewery (that I’ve had). Had again as Pale 31, not knowing that it was the same beer.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2012 Pours a nice copper color with a good white head. A sweet fruity hoppy scent and taste that is citrusy, sweet and damn good.

Out of the bottle from a liquor store near LAX. Pours a beautiful clear golden orange. Slight carbonation, slightly off-white head. Filtered. What a palate, much like Sierra Nevada but more robust. The lower alcohol content is quite suprising. Fantastic Pale Ale. Cheers!!

Pale 31 is very floral, with citrus notes. It is clear and golden in color. When I poured it, it had a minimal head, with white foam. Tastes great with a medium sweetness, and a thin, light body. Carbonation was lively, and finishes a little bitter, with a long finish. Definitely a nice, easy drinker.

This is what I remember beer to be: from my Anchor Steam beginnings of my youth to my Pliny the Elder hop-head tendencies (and when spending $5 or $6 for a bottle of beer made sense). 30 years ago this might have been considered a bold American beer but in 2012 this is simply great beer.

Pours a golden-amber with a amazing 2 finger head from a 12oz bottle. Nose is a mild sweet pine. Taste is what you would expect of a fine IPA. Balanced hops with malt finish. Great IPA.

Bottle. Bought this in our local supermarket (Globus) here in Germany. It was imported through BraufactuM Frankfurt. Very nice ale with floral hop notes. Love this for me new discovery.

Wirklich herrlich fruchtige Note, in der Nase Papaya, Mango, Ananas. Im Trunk setzen sich die Aromen fort, sehr weich aufeinander abgestimmt, leichte Süße. Im Abgang dann herb, bitter, aber nicht zu krass. Sehr rundes Ale, sehr sorgfältig abgestimmt. Einfach lecker!
