COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Columbus Tomahawk Zeus is the primary hop variety in War Hammer as well as the inspiration for the name. We use a combination of Pacific Northwest hops to create layers of pungent flavors. A generous malt bill adds biscuit and honey notes while allowing the hops to take center stage. War Hammer pours golden in color with aromas of pineapple, mango, tangerine, resin, & slight earthy notes. Drink fresh!

Bottle shared at the 11k/7k/5k. Aroma is potent hop. Grapefruit zest, pine, and pineapple. Pours beautifully yellow and fizzy with a sticky frothy head. Taste is damn near perfect. Tangerine zest, grapefruit, pine, resin, and some lemongrass. Intense taste and a crisp mouthfeel. This was a nice surprise.

jeremyh70 (585) - Missouri, USA - APR 4, 2014
Dark golden hazy color with two fingers of off white head and good lacing. Aroma of citrus with mild tropical notes and some chives. Taste starts off with citrus and tropical flavors then grapefruit rind bitterness that borders on being astringent. A bit of sweetness then resiny pine and herbal flavors. Some spiciness in the aftertaste along with a building bitterness. Finishes bitter and semi dry. Mouthfeel is somewhat oily with a medium mouthfeel and high carbonation. Good but not great. Not the best hop profile for my palate but I did enjoy the spiciness.

sample at EBF, on the sweeter side but the tremendous amount of hops counter it well, big hop aroma.
