12 oz. bottle at TJ’s. Poured hazy gold. Extremely smooth and light, crisp citrus hoppiness. More characteristic of an extra pale ale. Was expecting a little bit more from these guys but this one is very sessionable at least. SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - APR 29, 2013
Pours pale golden with a super tiny white head. Smells rather simple, but pleasant; soft malt character with some subtle California style hoppings. Taste is directly bitter with hints of sweetness on the back end. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Firestone Walker Pale 31 finishes with a drying bitterness that calls for another drink.

355ml bottle. Pours a clear deep gold, with a medium off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Floral, orange zest and spice hops mix with caramel and white toast malt to make up the aroma. Lime and orange rind hops up front lead into subtly sweet caramel malt in the mid-palate. Lemon curd hops come in at the finish, and there is a slight floral aftertaste. This is a very well-balanced APA, with good, interesting hops flavours sitting against a nicely rounded malt body.

Golden colour, white head. Aroma of lemon, orange and mango. Taste is light bitter, slightly sweet, very well balance. Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation. BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 9, 2006
12oz bottle: Mostly clear amber body with a small white head that is somewhat lasting. The aroma is malty, sweet, light caramel, and has some light citrus hop notes. Taste is sweet malt up front, a bit of caramel, and then fresh, grassy hops, sugary grains, bitter caramel, cereal, and lemon. Light-medium bodied, medium carbonated, finishes with mild grassy hops.

Golden color with some foam. The smell is crisp fresh and has a lot of citrus. The taste is calm, yet very bitter and tart with a pine forest hop part. The aftertaste is dry, bitter and tart. neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
On tap at the brewery, served in a snifter. Pours clear straw-golden with a small, white head. The head fades slowly to a thin remnant, leaving a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has huge notes of pine, flowers, lemon and grass, along with a moderate amount of grain. The flavour starts out slightly sweet, but soon becomes moderately bitter. The finish is average in duration with a moderate spicy, peppery finish. On the palate, it is light-medium in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice pale ale with a generous, hoppy nose. Served very fresh at the brewery, and well worth another try. 2011-06-08 luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Bottled. Beer is a clear, medium orange with a small, frothy, white head that vaporizes immediately. The aroma is malty with light notes of toasted grain; Hoppy with a moderate notes of lemon, flowers and iced tea, trace of resin/pine. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter with a longer than average, lightly-to-moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly sweet finish. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is fizzy. I have really enjoyed the delicate, refreshing notes in this beer. It’s highly drinkable, yet still reasonably complex.
