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!

jeremyh70 (774) - 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.

EtTuCthulhu (1131) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAR 30, 2014
This beer is an opaque amber color, and the head is large and white with the slightest tint of green to it. The aroma is very hop forward due to spruce, grass, resin, and citrus notes, and the taste continues to highlight those hops; the flavor is mildly bitter and balanced well with a touch of sourness and touch of sweetness. The bitter finish is expected, but the rest of the mouthfeel--soft carbonation, medium-thick body, and slightly sticky texture--complements the taste well.

HonkeyBra (3525) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2014
22 oz. bomber. Pours a hazed orange amber color with a thick, sticky white head. Aroma of some tropical fruits, some pine, some resin. Flavor is fairly bitter with mild tangerine and fruity notes, some mineral notes as well. Somewhat earthy, mild dankness. Full bodied. Oily textured. Average carbonation, long bitter finish. Above average.

Great hop nose and initial favor. Pretty good beer but it has a cloying and bitter aftertaste that will haunt your palette after each sip. Its pretty grassy and overly bitter on the back end. I hope they scale this back next year so it is more balanced.

(4 Hands Lupulin Festival - cask) cask version was my favorite at the festival. Gold with white head. Huge pine aroma. Flavor was abundant pine hops with a solid malt backbone. Don’t notice the alcohol. Excellent IAPA.
