COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
831 is a classic example of the modern American India Pale Ale. A simple malt bill provides a showcase for bold, citrus, dank hop flavors and enticing aromas. Each sip is clean and dry allowing for the pure expression of American grown hops including Magnum, Columbus, and Citra. Unabashedly aggressive and yet satisfying. 831 is our ode to the brash grace and herbal beauty of humulus lupulus.

brokensail (12277) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Orange pour with a white head. Big time pine and floral hop aromas. Nice grapefruit notes to it as well. Some bread and mild caramel aroma, but overall, fairly dry and minimal malt influence. Big orange and grapefruit citrus notes along with plenty of pine to add bitterness. A very nice floral quality, mild malt sweetness, and a dry, bitter finish.

hopscotch (9953) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle... Pours cloudy and deeply yellow with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is a marriage of golden grapefruit and pine resin. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Tons of rindy, tannic bitterness in both the flavor and lengthy finish. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

adnielsen (9727) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2015
Growler @ home, thanks to bytemesis. Pours a milky, cloudy yellow orange appearance with a lasting cream colored head. Aroma has light onion, passion fruit, orange creamsicle, and spicy hops. Medium body. Moderate high bitterness. Low sweetness. Flavor has some orange citrus but really is highly herbal, grassy, and some pine. Finishes quite bitter. Nice flavor and aroma. Eminently drinkable but a little too bitter.

GT2 (9132) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 22, 2013
2L growler pouring at The Bruery Reserve Society tasting. Low haze orange pour with rich foam and great retention. Nose is catty, bright hops with lemon and potpourri. Gamey melon like mango and jackfruit come through. Taste is soft, bright melon, potpourri, quenching and rich butterscotch. Rich palate with pine sap, forest, grapefruit peel, and hop resin balanced by butterscotch and cream. Fantastic. A new brewing prodigy it seems.

mcberko (8308) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
On tap at Sante Adairius, pours a cloudy peachy blonde with a small white head. Aroma smells like a cross between a farmhouse ale and IPA, with herbal hops, farmhouse yeast, and pot. Flavour is similar, bringing out loads of piney hops, and intense herbal, pot-like hops. They’re not messing around here - a rather abrasive hempy IPA. Good stuff.

Growler shared by David (I think). Pours with a hazy golden hued body with a white head. Aromas are herbal with tropical fruit, lots of high co-humulone hops, grassy, estery. Flavors are grassy, grainy, herbal, slightly aggressive, resin, pungent. Low malt, mostly hops. Lively carbonation, dry. Good.

marcus (7157) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 4, 2013
On tap at Hog’s Apothecary, Oakland. Pours cloudy blonde with a rich off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty toffee flavor that slips easily into bitterness. Smooth and well-crafted.
