Hop Bomber Pale Ale is an all out attack on your taste buds. With over 60 hop bittering units, this beer has a spicy backbone from the use of fresh rye malt and is dry hopped for a crisp refreshing flavor. Hop Bomber is truly a Hop Heads dream. Best served at 59ºF in a pint glass.

12 ounce bottle poured a copper color with aromas of malt, and feint hops. Flavors awe the same, mild hops, and some malt. Nothing that really stands out, a basic beer.

Decent pale ale. Very much a barley taste with some bitterness on the back end. Decent, nothing special.

On tap at World Beer Fest in Cleveland, very nice america pale ale, a little spicy which was surprising, overall bitter and solid.

Clear deep gold with a tall white head. Earthy hop and malt aroma. The flavor is lightly bitter with lots of dryness at the finish. OK, nothing great though.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a moderate off-white head on it and a little bit of floaties in there. Nose has a little bit of hoppy bitterness to it, but not a lot of substance. Taste is balanced in that it’s not bitter nor sweet, but there isn’t a lot of flavor to it.

Light malt but more right flavor than most pale ales. I can taste but can't identify at least two different malt flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange red pour with no head. Aroma of raisins. Tastes a bit like raisins with a bitter bite. No hops here. I guess it's old. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thedm (4948) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 27, 2012
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated slightly hazy light brown colored body and a poor lacing. The strong aroma was malty and mild hop. The semi-thick mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The thick flavor contained notes of mild hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Narnad (1464) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Copper colored brew with low carbonation topped with a very low off-white head that sits nicely. Aroma comes on stronger as this beer warms up. Very low hop presence to start with a light earthy and citrus nose combo. A light dark crystal nose comes in later. Flavor is very well balanced. light citrus noes with some modest earthiness in the middle. Finishes with a light bitterness and some rye spicy notes. Carbonation has a sharp feel to it and the body is moderate in density. Overall a brew I liked quite a bit. Definitely one I would want on a consistent basis if it was close to me as its a pretty well balanced pale ale.
