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!

Had this fresh at the brewery and a bottle kept in the fridge until now about 2 months later. Still fresh and delicious. Much cleaner and lighter on the palate with a little cold conditioning age, big big sticky alpha, has that big bite with almost matching citrus, aroma is fantastic. Super drinkable, lively carb. Fantastic.

This was sent to me by Strykzone. Thanks Dave for this fantastic beer. Pours a hazy apricot color with a really big rocky head that lasted seemingly forever and left lacing rings like Elmer’s glue. Really attractive. The nose is is caramel malts, tropical fruit, and grapefruit. Medium body and a sticky resinous mouthfeel. Flavor is intense, with citrus and pine hops just bombarding the palate. Finish is long, dry and the flavors just stay with you. Alcohol well hidden. I think most people are underrating this fantastic beer maybe because they drink it too cold. This was started at 58 degrees and it got even better as it warmed a few more degrees. Superb imperial IPA. Loved this one.

Jesterdeal (1842) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2014
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.

blipp (6072) - 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.

EtTuCthulhu (1032) - 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.

vyvvy (3951) - 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.

Really floral essence and real hops taste. Great white foamy head and nice lingering lace. Dark amber color is opaque.

bytemesis (3099) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 27, 2014
Bottle - thanks to beernbourbon! Pours hazy orange with a very large puffy off-white, slightly pale orange head that lasts a long time and laces well, if a bit clumpy. Aroma is dank, citrus, tropical, cat piss. Flavor has definite sweetness, some pineapple and mango flavors apparent. Medium bitter, but not harsh. A bit of an almost candy-like note in the initial stages. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, some ABV burn. Pretty nice beer.
