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.

Hiero (127) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 10, 2014
This has a nice citrus aroma to it. The flavor is mild, but builds into a distinct citrus grapefruit flavor coupled with a mild, pleasant bitterness. The body is a good medium and the finish is dry. Nothing in particular sticks out about this beer, the taste is somewhat simple, but they did it right.

Ferris (4128) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2014
Draft - Nice citrus hops, predominantly lemon. Pale gold with a rich white head. Lots of fresh lemon and a bit grass, followed by light sweet malts. A bit of lemon cleaner in the finish.

maxwelldeux (3662) - Everett, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a smallish white head on it. The nose on this is maltier than I would have expected, with some cereal elements to it; however, the floral hops come through with a little persistence. Taste is also slightly sweeter on the balance end of the spectrum, though there is a bitterness that comes through.

Suttree (5141) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 27, 2003
Golden with a white head. Flowery, mild hops, Slightly watery palate, but that it is not a detriment. A little smoky on the finish. This is a good "drink a lot of this" beer.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Pours a yellow color with a hint of amber. Crisp, floral, hoppy aroma. Hoppy flavor, little bit of sweetness. Pretty tasty up front but not much of a finish.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - APR 29, 2005
Golden amber color, soapy white head. Full hoppy aroma, grapefruity. Flavor falls a touch flat, bitter, but not overly flavorful and could have some better balance. Lighter bodied. Not bad.

Bottle shared with blankboy, tupalev & jerc - courtesy of blankboy. Light gold-amber colour with a strong & pleasant herbal tea aroma. Flavour is quite fruity, with more tea notes and a citric finish. Bidy is thin, but it’s OK otherwise.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 15, 2006
Had a good varity of aromas. Citrus, floral and pine. Darker shade of gold for body color with decent head. Flavor of citrus hops no malt profile in mine. Would of been nice the body texure would of been right. Cool and crisp on the palate a decent beer.
