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.

Thanks to blazer06 for the share. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is malt, pine, and grainy pieces. Flavor is similar with lingering piney hops and some acetone. Interesting.

ladnewton (1411) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2010
Bottle at the Beer Temple on 19th March 2010, courtesy of AltonBrownD. Pours cloudy amber with a frothy yellow-white head. Rich and intense hop aroma greets the nose. Thick and rich hop burst in main kick; strong grassiness and rich herb notes. An intensely bitter aftertaste. Textured mouthfeel. The hoppy bitterness is so intense that some may find it an acquired taste. One of the most extreme bottles I’ve drink. Exquisite.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 nose: musty and pungent, abrasive, acidic and peppery, dry and slightly nutty, but overall smells nice. highly bitter, highly aggressive and assertive. minerally, rough, some bitter celery and nuts. good weight, nice dryness, frothy without being weighty.

Bottle at the Poperinge train station to see Owen off to Brewdog. Subtle bitter, flowery, fresh hop taste, slightly unbalanced but very tasty.

Slightly hazy amber color, good creamy off-white head, lace. Grassy, piney and fruity nose. Medium-bodied. Crisp carbonation. Starts quite easy, but finish and aftertaste are very bitter. Pine, resin and some citrusy notes. Hop bomb. Tomahawk works well at least in this draught version of Mikkeller single hop series brew.

The pour is a hazy, rusty-amber color with a massive, off-white, fluffy, creamy, rocky head which sticks around for quite some time and leaves scattered, sticky lace. The nose is phenomenal with a delicate floral note all over, light pine, juicy citrus of tangerine and light grapefruit peel, subtle white pepper, and some kiwi maybe. The flavor is a bit of a roller coaster; tangerine, light kiwi, and floral begin the flavor progression but an assault of hop bitterness soon follow and punish my palate with floral leaves, light pine and rustic notes, and white grapefruit peel with just faint notes of bread far in the background. The palate is drying by the finish, medium, soft to lively, and lightly oily. The finish is all bitter with similar grapefruit peel notes, light pine, and dried flowers. I am at a loss of words with this one... Tremendous floral, citrus, and light kiwi in the nose and the beginning of the flavor but the high AA of the Columbus/Tomahawk hop presents itself with dominance. I have never tasted such a high bitterness from a beer in which I know was not over-hopped. This hop is amazing and would be great with the addition of more malts and/or different hops. I don’t usually like bitter beers which carry so much dryness but the other parts of the beer were perfect.

Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2010
(Draught at Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm, 13 March 2010) Amber colour, slightly hazy, with firm beige head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of orange peel, dried apricots, grapefruit and pine needles. Fruity, hoppy taste with orange peel, dried apricots and generous amounts of piney hops in a bitter finish. Drier than expected. More than medium body. Excellent IPA with an impressive hop character and solid malt to match it.
