Sadlers Ales Hop Bomb (5%)

Hop BombThis is a nice little Pale Ale, soft and easy drinking it pours a light straw and has a super soft aroma of mango and peach.
The malts are shortbread, burned brown sugar and a pinch of pepper, and the hops are reasonably sharp and dry.
There’s some grapefruit and lemon zest, herbal leaves and just a little pine resin in the finish.
A decent and refreshing beer but this is not the hop bomb that it claims, not by any stretch of the imagination.

    It’s funny, before I discovered supercharged American style IPAs I remember trying this at Bridgnorth Beer Festival and thinking “wow, that’s amazing”. (It was eclipsed about 5 minutes later by Salopian Kashmir though, which they’d just brewed for the first time). A few years later I had a pint in Spoons in Wolverhampton and thought “decent enough” but definitely no hop bomb.
