callmemickey (4531) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2012
A: Light golden-copper with a moderate off-white head. Quickly recedes but leaves behind some lacing. S: Citric hops dominate the aroma profile. Pleasant and subdued. T: More of the same... but amped up... Very nice, slightly bitter APA... good malt base adding some caramel and bread complexity. M: Light-medium body. Resinous. Good carbonation. O: Greatly enjoyed this brew... not quite like the Pale Ales out here on the east coast. Refreshing and enjoyable.

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.

Bomber. A good American Pale Ale. Sweet malty body with some bitterness for balance. Solid grapefruit. Crisp and zingy finish. Tasty

jsmerig (1578) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Pours a pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel malts and hops. Taste is initially sweet and malty quickly followed by a spicy hop bite. Northwest hops from the aroma and taste. The palate ends very crisp and clean which is one thing to note about this beer.

12oz bottle -

I have to admit that this stape in my fridge during the warmer months. Why its not been rated til now is odd. Its just a light, semi-hoppy, full of flavor, easy quaffing beer thats always a nice price $7-8 a sixer.

Aroma is really floral. Its easy to forget about the hops and think this thing was infused with some herbs, petals or fruit, because it has such a unique aroma for a pale ale. Flavor had some medium sweetness to it, keeping things very well balanced with the woody hops. Theres a zing of fresh hop right at the end of the swallow thats easy to notice and quite welcome. Phenomenal beer for the Summer time weather.
