Bomber from Half Time. Pours light copper with a few whitish bubbles. Nice hot pepper aroma. Almost medium body. Flavor is light malt with a lot of pepper. Pretty decent. Meaning it’s not too hot to drink. Certainly not a Ghost Killah ale. I think this hit the pepper point about right.

My wife brought this one home from a trip to Rochester. Not much good comes from most pepper beers but this one was less enjoyable than most. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy golden color with a medium sized creamy white head that left some lacing. The aroma was tangy with faint pepper and bread. The flavor was fairly blah basic beer with hot pepper heat but not much pepper flavor. The finish was long heat but not much else. Light body. Unimpressive.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at gabf. Pour is a pale straw with average head. Aroma of pepper all the way. Mouth is light and crisp with the immediate sense of peppers. It tastes a lot like nachos. I consider this more of a novelty and probably would have one glass and be done with it. But I have to give it credit as it really did capture a flavor profile and was fairly well balanced. Beat out other jalepeno beers I’ve had.

Pours a light orange. Smells like jalapenos- nice and green. Taste isn’t nearly as hot, jalapenos over an amber beer base. Some heat in the back of the mouth, but pretty mild- not at all overwhelming. Quite good. This would be great with some chips or nachos or really any Mexican food.

Bottle shared among other RB/BA folk... Poured golden with a white head. Pepper flavors were very potent. And I had this a long some high quality hot sauces and mexican food and it was a great compliment. Since my palate getting ruined by al the spice and heatI was able to enjoy the nice cereal-grain sweetness and ale yeast tones this had to offer. Notes of peppers, bell peppers, black pepper, and peppercorns.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I picked this up on a trip this past summer and somehow it got lost in my cellar until now.
Pours a deep golden color with a huge fluffy white head that dissipates slowly to form a cap.
Smells of green peppers, jalapeno’s and other assorted hot peppers. I can’t find anything malty or sweet beneath the overwhelming spicy pepper smell.
Taste is filled with toffee and brown sugar up front. I found the malt! Caramel and pepper skins midway with a long lingering spicy heat on the finish.
Mildly carbonated, medium body with a slick almost syrupy mouthfeel.
This one isn’t half bad. The heat wasn’t overwhelming, I could see me enjoying these if I were closer to the brewery.

3/18/11. Bomber courtesy SHIG. Mild corny aroma with a hint of pepper, but nothing spicy. Nicer malty flavor with a bigger hint of pepper. Not bad, a but light.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2012 On tap at the Brewery. Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of roasted jalapeños and fresh green bell peppers. Flavor of roasted jalapeño and toasted grain. This was a good pepper beer. I bought a bottle of this to bring home.
