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.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Hazy, dark yellow.. Saison looking.. Fresh, fresh, fresh.. Herbaceous, piney, citrus rind, and tangerine dominated aromas and flavors.. Delicate honeyed malt counterbalance rounding out mid-palate and finish, though unabashedly fresh hop dominated. Love the fresh hop layers!! West Coast style all the way! Blind Pig lookout!!! --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Prufrockstar (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Growler, shared by Ryan (thanks!). Enjoyed while watching a football game, so comments are sparse. Hazy pineapple juice pour. Frothy small white head, some lace. Ripe tropical fruit hop presence dominates. Bitterness is restrained. Soft in the mouth; medium body, okay carb. This is tasty.

Draft at SARA with Linh. Pours a bright golden body with white lacing. Aroma is fresh, dank hop, light pineapple, pine and additional fruits. Mouthfeel is medium / sessionable with notes of fresh pine, dank character, additional fruits and bright hop. A nice way to start the brewpub visit.

gad905 (184) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2014
Draft at Sante Adairius. Very hazy orange gold, tiny head reduces to a ring. Huge green citrus tropical aroma, has this been wet-hopped? Tastes moderate sweet light caramel malt, big bitter, green unripe fruit, oranges and resin. Great, very green but nice.

750ml growler in a tulip. Pours hazy golden / amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of piney and resinous plus lightly citrusy (grapefruit mainly) hops, some pale and light caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same with great hoppiness but maybe slightly too bitter. Average texture. A really good IPA but maybe slightly too bitter.
