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.

12oz bottle via trade with bmoosey, thanks Bruce. Poured a chunky honey orange/tea colored body with a foamy white head. Aroma is lightly sweet, honey topped bread, old toast, tea leaves, old caramel. Fuller bodied with average carbonation and a dry finish. Flavor is very similar to the aroma, some light sweet honey and caramel, amber malts, dry toast, older orange slices. Meh nothing special here.

Pours a clear amber color with huge white head, some floaties. Slight barnyard funk aroma, light caramel malt. A little bit of the barnyard character in the flavor as well. Decent hop character, slightly citrusy and piney. Just not sure the barnyards brett character is suppose to be there.

Meh. Didn’t enjoy this one. Mild aroma of beer. Taste was slight malt and bitter hops with absolutely zero taste. Why?

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 22, 2013
12oz bottle. A pretty solid beer, incorporates the rye well. Filtered glowing orange, big frothy off-white head despite the micro-hiss when opening the bottle. Hoppy, earthy, rye aroma. A nice steady bitterness, a nice steady sweetness. Quite well balanced, a very enjoyable beer. Classic, easy drinking. Nice to see the rye malt used judiciously.

nearbeer (4879) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 6, 2013
12 oz. Clear orange-amber with a lasting eighth-inch of creamy foam. Mild nose of caramel, toast and citrus. Taste is caramel, pine resin, toast, orange, lightly peppery rye and a hint of mint. Near-medium body has smooth low-average carbonation, a good balance and a nice drying finish. This one started very mildly, but really grew on me as the rye kept building. Pretty tasty sessioner with a bit of an English feel.

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.
