COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: Tomahawk is a great American hop variety, high alpha acid content and plenty of floral impression. This Single Hop IPA is a very powerful fellow who will probably scare off more people than he amuses but for a true hop head looking for a bitter experience this is nothing less than heavenly.
Ingredients : Water, malts (pilsner, cara-crystal and munich), hops (tomahawk) and yeast.

BMan1113VR (7788) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Tomahawk/Columbus/Zeus (CTZ). Pours with a hazy golden body and a small white head. Aroma is herbal and grassy with some caramel back bone. Flavor is nutty, herbal and quite bitter when compared to the Amarillo single hop that I just had (I know that they shoot for the same IBU). Light bubbles.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Light orange in color with some mild yeast and hop haze - Moderate sized white head. Carbonation seems to be good. Good assertive dank citrus and resin in the nose - with a hint of malt in the background. Taste has an assertive hop bitterness throughout with a good amount of citrus, resin, and earth. Some biscuity and lightly sweet malt pokes in, with some bready yeast. Bitterness lingers nicely. Enjoyed this one.

vtafro (2455) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Bottle brought to Paul’s new year tasting. Hazy golden pour with some white head. Pine, citrus, grassy hop notes, slight earthy tones as well. Nice single hop IPA.

eManu (434) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2010
Pours a slight hazy amber color with a nice thick off-white head. Aroma of strong hops, floral, citrus, and hints of honey and candy. Flavors of very bitter hops, more citrus and grapefruits, with hints of honey and candy. Good carbonation, very bitter dry. Long lasting bitter hop taste in mouth. Nice brew but maybe to bitter for me.

smcolw (529) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Orange-amber color with a slight chill haze. Huge, foamy head; recedes with a rocky dome. Leaves ample ring lace all the way down to the base of the glass. Strong grapefruit hop aroma. There’s a touch of pine as well. Light malt in the background. Bitter, but very dry. Leaves a very long hop-sucking flavor long after the swallow. Moderate body, good carbonation. Definitely a hop lovers beer, though not complex. Easy to drink IPA.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - FEB 28, 2010
33cl bottle. Pours cloudy orange/brown with a medium but very long-lasting off-white head that leaves lots of speckled lace on the glass. Aroma is fruity, vinous, hops with a pungent resiny quality over strong grassiness and soft toast. Bitter orange with some evergreen can be found, too. The flavor is sharp and a little acidic up front. Citrus marmalade and orange-blossom honey over dry and slightly overdone toast. Bittersweet and very resinous all over. Grows very bitter toward midpalate. Slightly grassy, slightly evergreen, a little funky, and very, very bitter. Finishes dry and bitter with toasty malts and a light honey and malt sweetness. Mouthfeel is sharp with resiny varnish/solvent-like astringency and very strong carbonation. Some fullness emerges with slippery medium body towards the back. Overall, a tasty and very decent IPA. But - honestly - this was a little disappointing. Some of these Mikkeller Single Hop IPAs are fan-freakin-tastic, and the CTZ hop family (Columbus, Tomahawk, and Zeus) is one of my favorites (I like to use them a lot in my homebrew). But this beer didn’t live up to my very high hopes...

bhensonb (10345) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Bottle from Star Grocery in Berkeley, CA. Pours orange with a three finger creamy off-white head. Aroma is pretty much cat pee/citrus. Medium plus body with foamy carbonation. Somehow the flavor goes towards grapefruit rind, which always makes me think of pine. There is some malty breadiness au fond, but the hop is all the thing here. Finishes like bitter candy. Very good brew.

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Courtesy of Blazer06. It pours deep gold with of white head. The aroma is nice and hoppy with spicy hops and sweet citrus hoppy cotton candy. The taste is similar with sharp spicy hops and modest citrus hop grapefruit like bitterness heading right into the finish. It ends a bit dry with the hop bitterness doing the job of drying it out.
