500ml bottle. Golden colour with a foamy white head and hoppy tropical fruit aroma. Taste is malt caramel, sweetish, with fruity citrusy grapefruit and hop resin bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation,dry tangy bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

Bottle from Home Bargains. (£1.49) This is a nice surprise after trying so many disappointing - ok, crap - new beers recently. Hop Bomb has something the others have lacked - flavour and body. Extremely dry at the finish. Good effort. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

shoestring (344) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - APR 10, 2016
Light golden with white fluffy head. Citrus and pine in nose . Yup get the metallic finish. Not hop bomb by any means. Bit misleading and threw me when tasting it. Expected way different. Refreshing but something there. Canít make upland if love it or thinks itís just ok. Will try again.

Bottle from B&M, Team Valley, Gateshead. Hazy, pale straw coloured with a thin white head. It has a sweet fruit, toffee and slight citrus flavour followed by peppery hops on the smooth fruity pine finish. Pretty good.

ThirstyBird (2516) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Thanks to bobinlondon for this bottle! Pours a clear, very light yellow with a pure white head. The smell is light grain, citrus, grass. The taste is citrus, a hint of grapefruit, grass and slightly early with a dry crisp ending. Light in body with average carbonation. A solid beer that will go well with my curry tonight!

Butelka 500 ml. Jasnozloty kolor z biala mala piana. Aromat cytrusow trawy i chmielu. W smaku dosc chmielowe z porzadnym finiszem. Cytrusy tlumia troche smak. Caljiem niezle IPA.

downender (7686) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2015
Cask-conditioned at the DJW in WIllenhall, 12/11/2015. Golden with a decent, white, head. Aroma of tangerine fruit, grassy hops and a touch of creamy malt. Flavour had a touch of biscuity malt, more fruits and a dryish finish. Good.
