22oz. bottle served in a shaker pint. Poured a hazy gold with a thin white head that quickly dissipated. Some citrusy hops and a little rye spice in the aroma. Also some sweet malt. Pretty good amount of hop bitterness upfront. Not a lot of malt there, I found it a little thin. Drying finish from the hops. Not bad, but nothing special.

Bottle courtesy of bu11zeye. Clear light golden pour. Frothy head. A bit of a musty smell. Aged hops also add to the mix. Softer taste upfront with a very dry finish. Bitter hops are left for the drinker to ponder. BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a clear golden body and a small white head. Nice citrus-orange aroma with some rye bite. Citrus and spicy, peppery mouthfeel. Light bubbles. Sammy (13013) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2009
On tap at Hopcat. Hoppy beer, lighter in color than I would expect. Not much of a rye edge.

Bomber pours golden amber with a thin white head. Aroma is piney hop, and malt. Flavor is well balanced between the piney hop and the malty sweetness. Neither takes the bull by the horns so to speak. Fairly middle of the road. I must say not much of a rye character. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2009
Bomber from the Binny’s in Willowbrook, IL: This poured a clear golden amber body with a hefty off-white head and provided plenty of lace. The aroma was peppery and spicey with floral and pine notes, all overlaying a light toffee/caramel sweetness. That pretty well describes the flavor, except that the spiciness translated into a steady bitterness throughout the drinking. Dry finish. A dandy brew, created in honor of Sky Dive Inc. in Hastings, Michigan, whose members are undoubtedly enjoying this beer... after the day’s jumping is done. deyholla (12589) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 27, 2009
Tap. Poured a clear gold with a white head that laced well. Notes of hop and rye with a nice underlying fruity aroma with blueberry, peach and lemon present. The flavor disappointed after the complex aroma as it was more hop based with a slight sweet undertone and a slight spice from the rye, but still a good beer. nbutler11 (1305) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 24, 2009
Bottle from Pauly’s in Lowell. Pours a light amber color with a soapy white head. Smells predominantly of peppercorn and pine. Tastes of each with added notes of toffee and mild peach. Not bad, but the rye really didn’t seem to play a large role. dmschefke (583) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Pours a nice pale amber with thick off-white head. Aroma strong of citrus hops, slight floral, pine, grass, and malt which I cannot distinguish as rye in aroma, but becomes evident in flavor. Flavor matches well and has a nice hop bite that I really enjoy. It is a little thin otherwise, but very drinkable and enjoyable.
