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.

Draft at Brouwerij Lane, Fresh Pine and citrus hop aroma. Forward pine hops with some citrus on the palate, clean and crisp , nice dry finish, a well executed pale ale, easy drinking.

badhack (554) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Pours golden and clear. Some head and carbonation. Taste and aroma are both express pine and citrus. With a very strong pine in the taste and a cooling menthe flavor in the finish. There is a healthy dose of toasty malt up front as well. This is a nice pale ale but the pine is a little overpowering for me and comes off a little unbalanced. Should make for some interesting food pairing.

Pours a clear orange with a thick white head that slowly fades to a nice lacing around the glass. The aroma is dominated by citrusy hops & the taste follows suit. There is some nice hoppiness upfront followed by a nice clean & crisp finish. Very well balanced and quite tasty. I’m typically not a huge pale ale fan but this beer is quite good and I would highly recommend.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 6, 2012
On tap at Big Star in Chicago, used mostly as a back up to some fine whiskey and to wash down some smokin’ tacos. Nicely bitter, fresh, and not too hoppy. Crisp and refreshing.

lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2012
355 ml bottle. Rated on 13.10.2012.
Pours a golden colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of really strong and fresh hops and grass. Flavour of strong bitterness, citrus, grass, floral notes and caramel. Medium bodied, high carbonation and a grassy bitter finish. Summery and refreshing.

3.5
ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 16, 2012
Pours a clear, pale copper, small white, fizzy head that doesnt stick around. Small bubbles pepper the body. Aroma is fruit, malt, caramel, honey and a nuance of sour yeast - husky sweetness cut with the hops. Quite clean and crisp and a little dry in the mouth. A bready, malt sweetness offset by the bitterness of hops that are big in the middle and finish, but never overdone. More bready malt in the finish. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied and quite lively carbonation. Another nicely balanced, quite sessionable APA.
