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.

smcolw (530) - 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.

13/VII/14 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 26/2/16 (2014-810)

Clear deep orange beer, big creamy off-white to yellow head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: some citrus, grassy, bit floral, soapy touch, ripe peaches, some mango, bit sugary, caramel. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty sourish start, peaches, caramel, malty, grains, bit sweet, nice bitterness, fruity touch, some orange. Aftertaste: fruity, bit grassy, sweet, piny bitterness, sour, some citrus, bit of caramel, resinous and pretty bitter ending.

Alengrin (1296) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Tomahawk version, with a very rocky, off-white head and deep cloudy, warm amber colour. Aroma of grapefruit, gentian, tonic water, peach, grass, strawberry, orange peel. Fruity taste with some citrus and some caramel, but that is just the vehicle for a very intense and agressive, extremely bitter hoppiness, peppery and citrussy, tonic water-like, astringent and dry, very long. The most extreme one in this series, at least of the ones I tasted, a real treat for hopheads. What an interesting series this was, a real school for those wanting to learn how to distinguish the essential hop varieties. And an excellent IPA, of course.

Niller (583) - Hammel, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle from Voldby. Pours amber with an off-white head. Good bitter taste of hops, citrus, fruits, caramel notes, spices. Soft carbonation. Nice bitter finish.

b3shine (5343) - Indiana, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Looks solid; a slightly hazy golden orange with off-white lacing. Smells sweet and sticky followed by hops. Some citrus, but it’s overshadowed by the malt. Tastes like it smells with an average (at best) mouthfeel that’s on the fuller side for the style. Another underwhelming Mikkeler malt bomb IPA.

Cuso (4429) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle from drinkshop.sk. Deep orange colored beer with thick persistent off-white head. Fruity hoppy aroma. Solid malty base followed by fruity hops. Long hoppy bitter finish. Pleasant bitter IPA

stoigniew (31) - Łęczna, POLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Bardzo udane piwo - w aromacie wyraźnie czuć zioła, liście, las liściasty, a po spróbowaniu czuje się jakoby świeżo porąbane drzewo ułożone w komórce lub mokrą trawę - klawo! :) W smaku arbuz i mango - generalnie tropikalne klimaty z bardzo przyjemną i niezalegającą goryczką. Ma w sobie coś z nut belgijskich,a po ogrzaniu czuć słodycz. Pomimo że etykieta licha to piwo bardzo dopracowane i cholernie przyjemnie pijalne że aż troche szkoda. Polecam.

kraddel (3004) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle @ Barely Legal Tasting Room Pours rather dark , amber , clear, with a good to big white head . Very intense , bitter smell , with hints of stonefruit , citrussy aspects, and hoppy earthyness . Taste is - to my big surprise - not nearly as floral as the smell . its bitter, mostly, with some floral tones underneath . nice, not great . The scent is the best part here !
