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!

A nicely bitter DIPA, really candy-like malts, a huge citrus blast. I think it is pretty good.

Holy smokes, this was released at last weekend’s Lupulin Carnival and I - not even having attended - am the first to rate it? Shame on you, festival-goers. Shame on you. Draft at Bailey’s Range. Pours a clear, deep golden color with a small white head. The aroma is big and fruity- citrusy hops, pineapple, and a host of tropical fruits on top of a caramel malt backbone. The flavor doesn’t pack quite the same punch; citrusy hops, caramel malts, pineapple, and crackers. Surprisingly dry, especially late. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation. Good.

blipp (6148) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Big dank pine and dirty citrus, moderate bitterness, and a long piney hoppy finish. A hop bomb for sure, but not too over-the-top. Pretty dope.

Strykzone (5009) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. I brought it. Caramel gold and clear. A white head. So much hop action in the nose. This is all over the place, hop wise. They are tasted, too. Nice citrus is big and bitter, some grapefruit but not pallet killing. This is good stuff. Caramel is light but those hs are nice.

vyvvy (4025) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 6, 2012
Sampled at Four Hands Lupulin Carnival 2012 - Pours copper with a white head. The aroma has grapefruit, pine, tropical fruit, caramel malt and cotton candy. Medium husky body with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts out with grapefruit rind, earth, pineapple and dry crackery malt. The finish is kinda rough and abrasive due to the hoppiness ~ this is in a good way. It gets earthy and piny as it warms. Nicely done IIPA.

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