Boise Brewing Syringa Pale

What the brewers say

“A balanced, hoppy version of a classic pale ale, featuring Idaho 7 hops, which provide support to the dank combo of Bravo and Simcoe hops. Nice hops aroma and flavor with a clean, dry finish.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “All of the citrus things! Orange, grapefruit, lemon, tangerine. Slight piney notes with a supportive floral base. Hints of a bubblegum/candy sweetness along with an earthy, tobacco character.”

Flavor: “Hops are predominantly fruity with some floral supporting characteristics. Big hops bitterness, but good balance for the style with a relatively dry finish. Malt is clean with a touch of toast and light caramel. The residual caramel sweetness is backed by a resinous bitterness that lets the hops character linger.”

Overall: “Well centered in the style with a bright citrus-dominant hops character. Goes down easy.”
