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.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye11. The smell is hops, tropical fruits, sweet, and caramel. The taste is hops, sweet, caramel, and tropical fruits. The look is golden in color, white colored head, and clear.

Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Smells and tastes like fart and stings your face. Pretty oily. Sampled at the "Guess who’s back..." tasting.

Butters (4039) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Sampled at the Guess Who’s Back tasting. Better than the amarillo. Hazy orange pour. Very woodsy hop with a massive lingering bitterness.

I just scored 3 different versions of these "single hop" beers, which I must admit is just a great idea. I had the "Nugget" first, now this "Tomahawk". This one is cloudier and quite a bit more bitter. Not as much citrus, more yeast and tangy flavor, some of the tangy reminds me of a slightly underrippened honeydew melon. There is also something a little more "musky" about this aroma and flavor. One of these days I will learn to homebrew so I can more clearly understand which things I’m tasting are related to which ingredients.

kappldav123 (5855) - GERMANY - APR 30, 2010
Thanks to yespr for this one. Bottle looks simple but good, the beer in the glass is very zippy, huge head. Starts quite dry, complex hoppy-fresh, flowery. More and more dry, finish almost a bit dusty. Good IPA.

bluevegie (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 30, 2010
Slight haze on an orangey golden body with good head and decent lacing. Similar citric nose as last night’s single hop IPA, just stood out a little more. Bitterness in the taste is not as strong ( as last nights ) though still prominent, medium body, very easy to drink but finish is a little short.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - APR 28, 2010
(bottle) slightly hazy copper with generous head. Citrus hops aroma. Big resinous citrus hops flavor and bitterness. Not as well balanced by the malt as some of the other Mikkeller single hop beers. Still, it highlights the hops effectively.

DocLock (9866) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2010
Bottle from Frank Smith’s. Pours hazy copper with 4-finger off-white head that stays around a long time. Nose is very citric, resiny, orange zesty hoppy. Tastes bitter piney, very citric, resiny, sticky. The malt takes a backseat to the hops.

douglas88 (8331) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 22, 2010
12 ounce bottle from City Beer in San Fran. Pours a bright orange color with a huge foamy head and lots of sticky lacing. A nice sweet citrus hop aroma. A good flavor; initially sweet, lots of citrus, orange peel, later much more bitter and soapy. Very bitter in the finish.
