A - Poured into a snifter. Copper color, almost transparent held up to the light with a half inch of white head.

S - Smells like a handfull of hops. Sharp citrus with malty notes.

T - Initial watery taste, then the hops kicking in some bitterness and a slight malty sweetness. There does not seem to be any complexity, pretty one-sided and unbalanced by the bitter.

M - Crisp and bubbly. Light body and quick finish.

D - Not really excited about this beer. The nose and appearance were really good, but the taste was a let down. Not a great drink, but not bad either.

Bomber split between two pint glasses for my wife and I to enjoy. It seemed like a solid bet at $4.50 a bottle. This is my first beer from HUB.

The pour yielded about three fingers of lite beige head seated atop a clear strawberry colored body with yellow-orange edges. Some spotty lacing is visible.

The smell is very promising. Nice aromas of pineapple and biscuit is evident.

The taste is not great. Lots of generic bitter and some lemon dominate. Some burnt caramel is apparent. Its a little bland and watery.

Mouthfeel could be better. Its a little thin with low carbonation.

Drinkability is easy. Its easy, because its thin an boring. I wish it was a little more complex with a bigger body. I wanted to like this one, but didn't and won't try again. I prefer Ninkasi Believer for my red ale fix.

pours a clear copper with a medium size dirty white head, and good lacing.

smell is of light grapefruit, organic funk, perfume, malt, hops, and some spice.

taste is of grapefruit, spice, caramel, malt, a touch of pine, some lemon, and a little sweetness in back, ends bitter with an organic aftertaste.

Dark copper pour with average head, but more than average lacing. Light malt, toffee aroma. Not the hoppiness you would expect from a pale ale. Taste is more malt, some caramel, mildly sweet, but not hoppy at all. Very close to an amber or brown ale.

Bomber from Capital Market Salem Dark amber. almost brown ale body, with a large frothy,bubbly tan head. Very hoppy aromas..mainlly resiny/piney Taste?..all hop all the time very bitter even for an APA..some berry fruitiness near the end. Ok on the palate nothing special though. Overall a very hoppy APA..probably an IPA in reality

Clear copper colour with a smooth, off-white head. Fair head retention. Good lacing.

A bit of sweet malt with some mild resinous hop aroma. A little fruity.

Crisp piney hops with a small dose of caramel malts. Fine if unexceptional.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Fine.

A decent red ale that fails to do anything spectacular. It's still very nice to drink.
