COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís a sin to call this beer a pale ale, itís so much more than that. Synner is slightly bitter with a punch in the face of hop aroma and flavor. Brewed in the tradition of a So-Cal session ale,itís copper in color with a medium malt body. This ale is brewed to be dry on the palate and have a distinctive fruitness found in the aroma. Synner is sure to satisfy both novice and experienced ale drinkers.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2014 Drinkable. Smooth but doesn?t do anything to excite me. Vegetal tastes with little maltiness. Bitterness is all on the back end. A lot of people like it, but itís not for me.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2014
Draft at the brewery taproom - Temecula. Pours clear gold with a moderate, white foam head. Solid beer in every respect. Big, dank citrus abounds with good hits of grapefruit and pee. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with light pine bitterness and further citrusy notes. Outstanding.

brokensail (9918) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 22, 2013
On tap @ Ironfire. Clear golden pour with a white head. Nose is really juicy citrus fruits. Tons of orange and grapefruit as well as pineapple, mango, and melon. Really nice hop flavor, too. Bright citrus notes of grapefruit and orange. Sweet pineapple and mango fruitiness, and melon. A bit of doughy malt and a light bitterness on the finish.

Caytinator (809) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 7, 2013
On tap at the brewery. A poor excuse for a pale ale. I donít know what to call it. Itís golden yellow, with a small persistent head. The aroma is simple, cheap, bitter, and unpleasant. The taste is just like the description says "a punch in the face", but thatís all it offers. Itís confusing hop punch for flavor, and thereís nothing to back it up after the first taste. I donít know what theyíre doing, but theyíre doing it wrong. There are way too many good pale ales in San Diego for this one to sell.

GT2 (7870) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Tap at Ironfire. Pours a clear, light golden. Webby white lacing. Nose is fresh mango, hop resin, squash, really nice. Taste is squashy, fresh hop resin, melon, cantaloupe. Palate is juicy, fresh, intense hop bomb. Impressive.

StefanSD (2015) - Lakeside, California, USA - JUL 4, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a translucent copper color with a small white head that has fair retention. The aroma is big and bold with grapefruit, tangerines, cilantro and weeds. The taste is not nearly as bold as the aroma, I get bitter grapefruit set in a biscuit malt base. The palate is lite and the carbonation is lively. Finishes medium in duration and dry with lingering bitter oranges. Overall: This is a fine easy drinking pale ale. It may become a regular this summer.
