Hard to believe it’s lager. Taste and aroma is like solid IPA. Hoppy aroma is incredible and fulfills the room after serving this beer in the glass. SanfordBrewer (1642) - Sanford, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Lucent coper, thin beige head, oily medium body, medium-low carbonation.rajendra82 (1101) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2010
Aroma: lots of fresh nobel hops, sweet toasty malt.
Taste: sweet toasted and caramel malts, pungeant earthy nobel hops.
Simple to describe, but interesting to drink. There’s more late addition hop flavor and aroma than is typical with nobel hop varieties, and i like it. Nice balance, few flavors, but a lot of each.
The tawny colored body was crystal clear, and formed a one finger thick head, while looking very invitingly bubbly. The smell was very hoppy, with the spicy aroma of noble hops predominating, and was followed by a whiff of caramel from the malt. The taste was a cross between a Maibock and a Festbier, as the caramel flavoring of the malt mingled with a spicy hop dryness. Crisp and toasty like a lager should be. A bit on the watery side compared to a proper IPA, but I suppose that this was a result of the cleanup done by the bottom dwelling yeast. The alcohol content did not feel anywhere near 7.2%, and the beer went down very easy. I liked this beer a lot more than I though I would. Quite different than the other Imperial Pilsners I’ve tasted, and a lot closer to the original inspiration. MikeTheWizard (14) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2010
Strawberry copper hue with very thin lacing. Round mouth feel and immediate citrus bitter American-style hoppy punch. Smoothes over with a bright Kolsch light maltiness and then transforms into a sweet light caramel malted finish. The hops still stick around in the finish along with the caramel notes. Very interesting beer. Good work boys. bhensonb (15624) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 15, 2010
Bomber from Ace in Boulder, CO. Pours clear amber/copper with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is roast caramel. Hop? Med body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is pale malt and a heck of a lot of hop. Grassy/herby hop. Noble hop. Not pure Saaz. But very nice. It starts to finish sweet and then the hop goes bump. Incredibly delicious.

Bomber pours brilliant clear copper with soothing short lived tan head. The aroma tosses up soft rounded notes of floral hops, mild spicy hops and a touch of sweetness. The taste is smooth and easy drinkin’ with soft yet fairly bold floral hops and then picking up pulses of spicy hops with a supporting note or two of sweet maltiness. Smooth hoppy and slightly lagery brew. Well done. kassner (1686) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2011
Bottle from Dorothy Lane. I liked this type and beer. Very nice example with copper color, nice head and lacing, with a unique must taste up front, very subtle so it adds to flavor, citrus notes as well. brokephibroke (315) - Mead, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Bomber. Deep reddish copper pour with a thin white frothy head. Floral hop aroma with a sweet maltiness backbone. Bitterness prevails in the mouth, and it lingers and lingers. Not sure if I have ever had this much German hops in a beer. Upon further sips, you can note the smoothness up front, but then the hops hit hard. You all should try this. adrian910ss (2591) - Doylestown, PA, USA - OCT 6, 2010
On draft at Capones. Pours a clear coppery color with a medium sized frosty off white head. Aroma of light citrus, lemon tea, honey and hops. Taste is much the same as the aroma. Suttree (6484) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 16, 2010
I enjoyed this, but I really couldn’t do it justice trying to describe it in my notes. It has a lot of what I consider ale-like qualities at first, but it finishes kinda lagery. In between, there is a nice mix of caramel and resiny hops. It seems to morph from an IPA to some sort of hoppy marzen as you drink it.
