3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The pour is a hazy, rusty-amber color with a huge, off-white, creamy, rocky head which sticks around for quite some time and leaves scattered, sticky lace. The nose is pleasant but subtle with mostly citrus notes of orange and tangerine, light floral notes, and faint apricot and leafy notes. The flavor is much of the same with similar fruit notes (orange, tangerine, apricot), subtle floral, light rustic hints, and some faint sweet breads. The palate is medium, soft to lively, sticky, and velvety. The finish is fairly long and mostly bitter with rustic, floral, and tangerine notes. It is hard for me to imagine that this is the same recipe as the Tomahawk; this one relies on its subtleties versus to the brash nature of the Tomahawk. Only a moderate bitterness from this IPA but nice hop flavors make it quite pleasant.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2010 04/11/11 Probably three and a half years old?Pours a hazy copper orange with a large frothy near-white head that coats the glass with thick lace. The aroma has a dirty, herbal, woody character, with some light grapefruit. Very nice flavor. Starts out sweet, then becomes similar to the aroma, with a lot of alpha’s. Long bitter finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Powerful single hop.
