3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden amber with a good two finger white head. Copious lacings. Aroma is of dark earthy hops. Taste is pine, leather, some initial fruitiness and a good malt backing. Altogether somewhat too bitter for the style. This was not a problem for just a tasting note. I believe this was a very fresh bomber as it was the first HUB product I have seen at the place of purchase. Very fine organic Pale Ale that will really deliver on the full bitter end of the spectrum.

Its an interesting pale. Organic which is nice, a slightly malty hoppy head, and even lingers little.

On tap at HUB. Poured gold with minimal head. A nice hope aroma with good balance. Light on the palate. It’s a bit inconsistent keg to keg. I love the distinct flavor sometimes, bit it is boring when "off".

Poured a thin copper-amber body with a small white head. Bready, bitter nose with a creamy feel to it. Pretty thin and uneventful in the finish, but well built.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at HUB. Poured a brilliant amber with little head. Slight hop aroma and good hop/malt balance. A bit watery. An average pale ale that could stand a bit more malt and late hop additions.
