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.

Bottle. Poured a clear dark copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus hops and earthy malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

Dogbrick (8983) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2012
This brew is a clear copper color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of hops, malt and a bit of spice. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character and notes of citrus and sweet malt. The finish is hoppy with a fruity aftertaste. Decent overall.

BMan1113VR (7890) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Bottle via a trade. Pours with a slightly hazy golden body that shows intense carbonation. Fluffy, bone hued head sits atop with great, ring per sip lacing and retention. Aromas are malt forward (bready, toasty, lightly spicy, grainy) followed by hops (citrus, tangerines, light tropical fruit, grassy). Some fruit esters, and a slight hint of plastic. Flavors are grainy forward (bready, toasty, slightly astringent/husky, peanut shells). Medium hop bitterness and decently dry. Husk tannins are distracting. Hop flavor is low with hints of citrus (orange and lemon). Light fruity esters towards the finish. Well attenuated. Slight plastic in the finish. Very lively carbonation. Medium to low body.

DrSilverworm (7800) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2011 12 oz bottle. Darker yellow orange color, translucent with a thin white quickly fading head. First impression is a nice, hop bite (but not quite bomb) good after that dunkel. Short-lived aftertaste, but a good one.
