Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2012
Originally reivewed: 5/12/09. Pours a cloudy gold with a billowy white head bursting forth. Excellent retention throughout the entire drink, leaving some spotty lacing on the glass edge. Smells of malty biscuits, honey-kissed breads, and slight floral finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean. Flavor is of buttery bread, sweet candied malts, and finishes with just a touch of hoppy bitterness. With the low ABV and great flavor profile, this has got to be one of the most drinkable APAs Ive ever had. I could drink these one after the other all summer long. Recommend.

cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 20, 2009
Bomber served in an English pint. Pale yellow-orange color, a touch hazy, and a fluffy white head that disappears quickly. Sweet candy aroma of toffee and pound cake. Mild carbonation, light body. Crisp brew, yet plenty of hops. Mildly bitter finish. Nice APA.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - AUG 24, 2007
Golden brown body with a heady froth of white bubbles. Aroma is nice. Floral hops softly grace the nose. Taste is recessed for a pale ale, a little too sweet for my liking. Vanilla undermines the palate here. Not a bad beer, but to me, its unbalanced and not drinkable on a repeated basis.

On tap at Teresa's next door. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a very pale light golden. A few fingers of head and a wee bit o lacing. Mild grassy aroma. Mouthfeel is light but way too carbonated. Taste is grass and bubblegum. A little dirt too. Overall, meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 4, 2007
12oz bottle. Medium orange-yellow color with a small white head. Heavy citrus and pine Cascade hop aromatics. Citric metallic hop flavor dominates. Tinges of crystal malt peer through, provide some balance. Bracing bitterness in the finish, fades quickly to a residual sweetness. Mouthfeel is fairly light, somewhat dry.

Scipio (978) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a white head that rapidly dissipates. The aroma is more subtle, but it is enticing. Pine, grapefruit, lemon, and grass. It seems to be more along the line of a mild IPA, only better than your lower grade ones. Taste is quite bitter throughout. Mostly grapefruit with some milder pine. There is a little bit of a soapy taste in there as well, especially at the end. Outside of this, while more simple, its actually pretty tasty. This one is crisp and refreshing. Light in body, with a good amount of lively carbonation. I have to say I enjoyed this. It is mostly straightforward and not very complex, but that is ok. Its a great session beer.

fiveacestx (968) - Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle - light yellow pour with a medium head. Grassy aroma with a lemony grassy taste. Somewhat dry on the finish. Better than the beer that Firestone is calling their session beer (FW Easy Jack).

HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2009
12 oz. bottle of Pale 31. Gold color with thin head. Nose and taste is floral with honey. A subtle hop bitterness lingers on the palate. The floral hops were great and could be more prominent. Would have also liked a little more malt backbone.

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear gold with quickly settling white head. Aroma is piney, resinous hops, with a malty background, nutty, biscuit. Flavor is hoppy, resinous, citrus, with a nutty, cracker malt finish. Much better than I recall. Soft carbonation, medium-light body. Tasty, clean and drinkable.

PartyFowle (954) - - MAR 31, 2015
Draft. Pale gold and brilliantly clear, with a fizzy grayish head that dissipates quickly. Aroma has orange and grapefruit peel along with a smooth earthiness. Pronounced bitterness in the flavor, which is led by citric and grassy hops until the swallow delivers notes of orange blossom honey, baked bread and roses. The finish has a palate-wiping quality, making this one extremely qauffable.
