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.

clear golden body with a small white head.the aromas and falvor were of your standard pale ale.i detected some malts and a bit of bitter hops.this would be really good with a big meal such as steak,or ribs to wash your palate.but overall id say its pretty average.

Gorbalev (2916) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2005
Bottle, via HTH and Blankboy at Greg’s. Herbally hopped up aroma which was really nice and interesting. No head, slightly dark yellow pour. Taste is bitter but also extremely watery. There is a really nice original aroma and taste here, but there is not much else at all to go with it. Still, this would be tasty on a hot summer day. Decent.

sloth (2468) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 11, 2005
Small offwhite head, short lived with scattered lacing. Good clarity, light copper color. Light hop and malt nose, citrus, light pine and a touch earthy with some grainy malt notes. Body is med/light. Citrusy hop flavors, lightly grainy and doughy malts are seemingly well balanced. Finish is fairly dry. A nice APA.

Lubiere (9877) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2009
A golden blonde ale with a thin white head. Pungeant floral c-hops, grapefruit, biscuitty. In mouth, a light pale ale with light resinous, rather weak in mouth. On tap at brewpub, August 16 2009.

Draft. Golden ale with an intense floral aroma, very resinous. Very hoppy in mouth, due to lower gravity and high hops (Brewer sitting next to me). Excellent balance. Im trying to imagine what the IPA is like.(June 2004).

22. Pours a crystal clear bright orange with a loose tan head that falls quickly away. Butterscotchy, piney nose. Would be pleasant but for that butterscotch. Creamy medium body, decent carbonation. Caramel, pine, and butterscotch mid-palate. Mild piney finish. Curious to see what this would taste like clean--it’s a fairly down-the-line APA, which is a little surprising for Fire Walk, but it’s more surprising to see the butter.

Compliments of uncle Steve. pours a nice dark yellow, clear and clean. Head laces to sides nicely. Even with a cold, the hoppy aroma comes through nicely. Nice light hop flavor that is not overdone. Mouthfeel is good but not great. Bittering on backside is light.

I liked this a lot! Nice floral nose at pouring. Poured a butterscotch color with head that disipated to a nice lacing around edge. Great mouthfeel with JUST the right amount of hops. Nice bittering at the end. Sure would love to find this in NC regularly! Thanks to the Magic of DrBayern and his Magic Bus trip to Beantown!

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2010
Shipped to me by my wife from a trip out west this beer poured a yellow-gold color with a medium sized soapy yellow-white head that lingered. The aroma was lightly fruity, floral and a touch nutty. The flavor was tangy and a little bitter with notes of caramel, fruit and touches of pineapple and grapefruit. Medium length hoppy finish and medium body. Decent.

NickVega (154) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 2, 2010
Decent Pale... not too much to say about this one. Tastes like an English ale with a little extra bitterness, very light head from bottle, very drinkable but not memorable. Serve cold.

jfb (3768) - Freising, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2011
(bottle) pours a clear deep golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of powdered sugar, lime and tangerine, with a hint of grass and a medium spiciness. flavour is mostly the same, with notes of honey, mango and pale malts and a light floral-hoppy bitter finish. light-bodied with average carbonation.

A sort-of boring ipa. Pleasant to drink but not something I would rush to return to. Th finish is also a little short. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
