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.

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 (1472) - 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.

12 ounce. Malty and bit fruity IPA. Not a hop bomber by any means. Drinkable for what folks try to do with this type fo IPA. But a tad too sweet.

Bottle from Bittermestupid. Thanks Greg! Pours copper with a foamy off-white head. Aroma of fruity/floral hop over light caramel. Near med body. Flavor is lots of floral/fruit hop over rye spice. Finishes hoppy and spicy. Very nice.

A good pale ale that pours an amber color with spicy malt aroma. Taste is very sweet and the hops could be more to be a true hop bomb.

kramer (5108) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body with a small foamy off-white head that left some light lacing. The nose is showing a good bit of crystal malt which is a distinct turn off for me personally. Some light English hops make it past, but not a whole lot. The flavor shows off lots of crystal malt as well making it overly sweet and dulling the hop favors. Can’t say that I get a whole lot of rye from this either, perhaps from the crystal malt as well. A touch sticky on the mouthfeel due to the risidual sweetness. Soft fizzy and prickly carbonation. I will never understand why crystal malt has a place in APAs or IPAs.

Bottle. Pours amber. Spicy malt aroma. Small white head. Decent hop bitter flavor, but hardly a hop bomb. A decent pale ale that is very crisp and clean. Not a beer to seek out, but not offensive and very easy drinking.

Taster at the brewery. Nice hoppy aroma, flavor is a good blend of malt and hops. A solid Pale Ale.

Aroma is citrus hops and a hint of tea. The flavor is citrus and biscuit malts.
