COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale 31 is an ode to our home state of California—the 31st to be named in fact. Beer may not be associated with terroir the way wine is, but we believe that where we’re from impacts how our beers taste. This California Style Pale Ale represents the bold yet approachable spirit that embodies our state. A crisp floral hop aroma precedes a medium-body and clean finish.

On tap at source. Northwest hop aroma of pine and citrus. Flavor if mild malts and slight fruity esters finished out by hoppy bitterness.

I like the hoppiness. Visited the brewery while on vacation and loved the beer and decided to buy some to bring back. A very good beer if you like a hoppier pale ale.

oooo-eeeee.......das a miiighty fine brew! Fragrant fresh hop nose, nice head that dissipates somewhat. verrry very drinkable. Friendly beer. Looks great in my goblet: in the wide part a tarnished gold, and in the thin part a nice yellow gold. Good mouth and a flavor that matches the aroma. Satisfying, yet alluring. Maybe a hair thiner than Sierra Nevada, but better flavor. Got this bottle in a beer a the month. Wish we could get it in La Crosse.

So clean, crisp, and refreshing. Strong citrus hop flavor with a pleasant aroma. My favorite pale ale!

A great pale ale if you like a little cascade flower up your nose. If you don’t like cascade... don’t try it. But if you do you’ll love it. A taste sensation!

Bottle at GBBF and one at home. This stuff totally blew me away, like i sampled one at the fest and had to buy one to bring home. Aroma is soo fresh and hoppy, citrus hop resin, leafy green hops, good underlying pale biscuity malt character. Taste is similar, quite a bitter chap too. Like id happily sit and drink like 10 of these every weekend and i wouldnt get bored. Excellent! Lets just hope thats what they are makign a cask vertion of for the wetherspoon fest!

12 oz bottles: Peachy color, maybe 12 SRM, bubbly without lasting head. Aroma is honey-sweet and gushing with Cascade dry-hopped goodness. Flavor leads with honey, toffee and berry jam, balanced with crisp hop bitterness spot-on for style. Medium light body with sustained finish that confirms this pale best of style. (Flavors muddle a bit as beer warms past cellar temps).

Delicious beer, amazing aroma even from a bottle (I am playing ping pong, no glasses). Anyway, very impressed at the sharp hoppy piney nose and the bitterness that lasts just long enough.

Clear golden color with one finger white head. Taste is orange, some grapefruit, biscuit, and light bitterness. Pretty light body, nice carbonation. A pretty good beer.

12oz bottle from Hippo Beers. Golden orange, good head. Corn hop aroma. Grains resin hop flavour. Understated and well balanced. Light and refreshing. A very well balanced beer.
