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.

Amber pour, light head. Some malty notes shine in the nose followed by some earthy hop smells. Flavor is refreshing, biscuits, hops. Not bad.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Poured out of a 12oz bottle. Pours with a nice rocky 3 finger head. Excellent head retention and great lacing as well. The smell is of caramel and toffee along with some earthy hops. The taste is immediately dominated by an odd butterscotch flavor. Not sure if it is intentional or not but it gradually fades as the beer warms. The rye is detectable along with moderate hop bitterness and flavor. The more I drank this beer the better it got. Still not sure if I would drink it regularly but it might be worth revisiting.

WabashMan (1024) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - NOV 18, 2011
A dark, amber tinged orange with a nice, slightly off white head starts this beer and, in truth, this is the high point. A lovely appearance, but generally one dimensional in both aroma and taste. Nice flavor, but nothing remarkable. Dominated by a moderate hoppiness.

Bottle. Light gold€ light malty nose. Taste is a bit sweet with some malt profile. Hopw are underwhlming. Mislabeled-not a hop bomb.

Dark amber with a huge rocky head and much lacing. I expected strong hop flavors, but they aren’t here. The taste is of malted wheat and sour lemon bitterness. The hops enter early and are gone before the finish. An odd but interesting pale ale.

OK, some tart things going on and I like it. Lots of sizzle on the palate. Rocky head. Vewry smooth and very drinkable. Some citrus sour or tart bite keeps poken at me making this quite interesting. Does have a ipa character to it but the co2 and wild yeast effect makes it acceptable. I’m curious if they all have this tartness or was mine a unique batch. It does have a few attributes of my fave beer, orval, but I’m not going there. This beer would be great except that ipa kindah finish.

Drake (11937) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2011
12 ounce bottle from a sampler, from Belmont Party Supply. Pours a clear reddish amber with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel malts and floral hops. The taste is brown sugar, citrus hops and a tart finish. Medium bodied.

LilBeerDoctor (3772) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear light brown-orange with a thick white head. Aroma of grainy malt, caramel malt, light fruits. Flavor is rather grainy/cereally with some light fruits in there. I wouldn’t call this a "hop bomb" by any stretch of the imagination. It is ok, not something I would seek out routinely. 6/4/6/3/12 [3.1/5]
